Xan West is the nom de plume of Corey Alexander, an autistic queer fat Jewish genderqueer writer with multiple disabilities who spends a lot of time on Twitter.
Xan’s erotica has been published widely, including in the Best S/M
Erotica series, the Best Gay Erotica series, and the Best Lesbian Erotica
series. Xan’s story “Trying Submission,” won the 2018 National Leather
Association John Preston Short Fiction Award. Their collection of queer kink
erotica, Show Yourself to Me, will be rereleased in early 2020.
After over 15 years of writing and publishing queer kink erotica short stories, Xan has begun to also write longer form queer kink romance. Their recent work still centers kinky, trans and non-binary, fat, disabled, queer trauma survivors. It leans more towards centering Jewish characters, ace and aro spec characters, autistic characters, and polyamorous networks. Xan has three queer kink romances currently available: Nine of Swords, Reversed, Their Troublesome Crush, and Eight Kinky Nights.
