If she were an animal, Sonya Bolus would be a half-wild Lynx. For now, Sonya is a genderfluid Leatherdyke who is Switchy as Chaos-theory. She is a feminist, nerdy scifi enthusiast, pagan, avid knitter, artist, and expat Kiwi. Oh yeah, she writes stuff, too. For the past 12+ years, Sonya has had the honor of being collared and married to her beloved Daddy/boy Marty, an exceptional and eccentric, very-handsome transman. Their home is ruled by Magick, a ridiculously intelligent and talkative black cat, and Maya, a loving, loyal chihuahua, who is so cute it makes your teeth hurt. Sonya is also mother to a beautiful and mysterious, grown human son. Sonya lives in Sacramento, California where she serves on the board of Queer Leather Association Sacramento (QLAS). She has given workshops throughout the West Coast on such topics as Archetypal Leather Relationships, Leather and Spirituality, Gender Identity, Age Play, BDSM & Disability/mental illness, Partnering a Transperson, Switching, and Puppy Play. She is grateful and proud to have been profoundly shaped by her participation in the Women’s Butchmanns Experience, Advanced Butchmanns, SPLF Girl & Boy Training Camp, the School for the Work, and the Dance of Souls at the Southwest Leather Conference.
