S. L. Finlay is an Australian author and journalist, who writes about all things sexuality with a focus on alternative sexuality, kink, BDSM, fetish and queerness. Finlay writes both fiction works in the form of novels and short stories, and non-fiction journalism, which often has as much of a science basis as it involves reporting and interviews. Finlay’s work has appeared in SBS, Archer Magazine and others.
Finlay’s goal is – with the assistance of her community and readers – to create a more liberated world where everyone is free to explore their sexuality safely without fear of judgement.
Formerly globe-trotting kinkster who has returned to her home town of Melbourne with enough tales of love, loss and exotic fetish to fill many volumes of autobiographies, Finlay has chosen to turn her pen to writing fictional stories about heroes who make you swoon and heroines who make you green with envy.
Finlay began her writing career as a music journalist who used her natural charm and confidence to gain access to places she shouldn’t have been and get interviews with artists who wouldn’t be interviewed by anyone else. She did this before going on to work as a professional writer in London where she further polished her skills while adventuring through the BDSM scene there.
With themes of sexual exploration, power, passion and adventure permeating through her fiction work, it’s not hard to see where Finlay got her ideas from.
