Alice Mahon's fixation began years ago when she meet a black lady with one leg at church during the only few weeks her parents went. It festered until one of the university professors mirrored the body image she still harbored. Little did she know Dr. Shepherd shared the feelings she felt were quite unique. Only when she met Bebe Upchurch did she find they were not.
About the Author
Author, wife, lover, and amputee. I have been missing my left leg for years. Growing up I felt that it should not be there, and it is has been a blessing to have it gone. Today's term for this condition is BIID and in the past simply referred to as being a 'wannabe'. I am a full-time crutch user. Like my husband, I find amputees fascinating. 'Devotee' is the frequently used term. My stories have characters that mirror my life in some manner - wanted/needed to be an amputee or want to live with an amputee. I make no apology for my descriptions of these people and there is no intent to take away from the suffering of some amputees. I love feedback on the stories, but I cannot promise to reply.
