J-L Heylen is a quirky, geeky, non-binary, Antipodean with a penchant for writing speculative fiction, science fiction and Steampunk with a smattering of gender politics and left-leaning ideals. She lives in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, with her wife and dogs. Notice I mentioned the wife before the dogs, there, dear reader. I hope dog-lovers will understand why I did that. J-L has two series available as eBooks - The Wisdom seriesa feminist dystopia sci fi series, with a touch of kinky lesbian sexiness; and The Deception Engine series, a rollicking steampunk romp.  They also have two short stories available. Strap yourself in for a funny, thought-provoking, adults only, and above all, entertaining ride.
