Billie Winterholer

Hello everyone. I am Billie, author of Transition, Making Dull the Thorns, and the Parched Earth, Green Corn trilogy, of which Fem'an and Warrior has been published.

I am non-binary transgender, having "come out" several years ago. My preferred pronouns are "she" and "her" but I am not strict, having spent most my life living with other pronouns.

I am a parent of two, grandparent to five, and a great-grandparent to two (so far).

I am a widow, having lost my beautiful wife, Wanda, to ovarian cancer in May of 2012, after 35 years together.


I also play guitar and a little banjo--both of which I shied away from for several years and am trying to take up again.

Yes, the hair is a little shorter, this is from early 2010s.
