Bethany Fine grew up in Tiburon, California, where she spent most of her time doodling naughty drawings in the margins of her notebooks at school, and filling entire binders full of short erotic fiction – none of which was very good. She studied painting at The Academy of Art College in San Francisco, where she met the love of her life, and current partner, Josie. Bethany struggled for several years to make a career out of being a painter. However, fate quickly took control of her life, as it often does, and illness forced both her and Josie to move from the Bay Area and travel as nomads across the world in search of a cure. They finally found a cure, and a home, on a lake in the-middle-of-nowhere, Minnesota where they both currently reside.
