Hi, I'm Mary Black Rose. I'm an author who writes LGBT adult fairy tales that seek to raise awareness and overcome abuse.

This is my community. In This Rainbow Life you can read my writing, and participate in activities which help unify individuals who seek change in the world, through poignant literature.

Once a month the Rainbow Readers Book Club meets to discuss books with relevant and LGBT themes.

I also frequently post blogs about these topics, and occasionally we have contests and giveaways just for fun.

A Free Book For You

Get a feel for my story telling style. See if it’s your cup of tea! I’ve written a 15k word short story you can download from various ebook retailers completely free.

It’s not very often I will rally to some other organization’s cause, but ‘Protect Every Child’ is an organization which is rallying against closed door interviews with clergy, sexual shaming interviews, and other related sexual practices in religion, concerning children.

They are pushing to have laws put in place to advocate for children who have no voice in these vile practices.

I was one of these children who was abused by their practices. When you read about Ayame’s worthiness counseling in my book, it’s actually toned down from what I experienced in real life.

It’s wrong and it needs to stop. If you agree please sign this petition. Click the button above.
