Becki Jayne Crossley has had a book in her hands since before she could read.

Since mastering the alphabet and the art of holding a pen, she's been scribbling down stories.

Her first 'book' was was a story about ice cream called Ice Cream, and she is still particularly proud of it.

Currently, she is editing her first novel Tart and pays the bills by working as a copywriter for a technology company.

Aside from writing fiction, Becki runs a blog on feminism, sexuality, mental health, body positivity and gender. You can visit Freudian Sluts by clicking here, or on the tab above
