A.M. Salt lives and writes in San Francisco. She misses hay mows and the flecks of black dirt that work their way into the pores on the backs of farmers’ necks.

Marilyn Hollinger: I’m 33, femme, fat, an out lesbian for 11 years, a non-monogamous S/M top. My passions are women, sex, deep friendships, lesbians, being out, S/M play without hangups, butches (especially butch bottoms), being on-line, Star Trek, and designing usable computer software.
