Remittance Girl is my pen name. I'm a Canadian-born writer living in Vietnam. I mostly write erotic fiction of a literary bent, but stray from it at times to write the occassional piece with absolutely no sex in it. I teach narrative at a university here, and grow orchids.

My short stories have been published in a number of anthologies, including Sage Vivant and M. Christian's Garden of the Perverse: Fairy Tales for Twisted Adults, Bold Strokes' Series: Lessons in Love: Erotic Interludes 3 and Lisabet Sarai's Cream: The Best of the Erotica Readers and Writers Association. 

I've also been priviledged to serve, in 2007, as ERWA's theme story editor.I have a Master of Arts in Writing and am currently doing a PhD in Creative Writing.
