The Upper-Class Bisexual Top as Romantic Hero
My contribution to the 3rd IASPR Conference
A native New Yorker and lifelong resident of Brooklyn, Ann Herendeen has worked as a researcher for an urban planning consultant; an advertising media planner; a public and academic business reference librarian; a trademarks monitor for an intellectual property law firm; and a cataloging librarian specializing in natural history. Ann is a graduate of Princeton University (B.A. with High Honors), where she majored in English while maintaining a strong interest in English history. She enjoys reading—and writing—for escape.
Ann writes from the "third perspective," the woman who prefers a bisexual husband and an m/m/f menage. With Phyllida and the Brotherhood of Philander, Ann put a new twist on a traditional form, creating the ultimate love story she always wanted to read: a Regency romance with a bisexual hero. In Pride/Prejudice, she tells the hidden bisexual story within Jane Austen's classic novel.
In the ECLIPSIS e-book series of "Lady Amalie's memoirs," Ann takes readers back to the future as she brings her unique perspective to the sword-and-sorcery genre.
"She was present all the time, except when she went out to fetch liquors. The company talked all manner of gross and vile obscenity in her hearing, and she appeared to be wonderfully pleased with it"--testimony of an informant at the trial of Margaret (Mother) Clap, accused of running a "molly house" (gay bar) in London in 1726.
