Sapphic book by a full-time writer (Sapphic Book Bingo #6)

For this week’s category of the Sapphic Book Bingo, read a sapphic book by an author who writes full-time.

Questions for full-time writers

In about three months, I will be taking a very huge step. I will give up my day job as a psychologist to write full time. Being a full-time writer has been a dream for me for as long as I can remember, but I never thought that the day would come when I could actually afford it. It always seemed like a pipe dream to me.
