Hello! I'm Keera Joel, a romance writer, narrator, and Somatic Attention Therapy practitioner. I love being of service to move people toward feeling seen, heard, and connected. My biggest goal is to help increase love and connection in the world.
As someone who grew up feeling lonely and afraid, I have a passion to help people realize their worth and to connect with others in a healthy, loving way. I believe we are all worthy of love and that in general, people are good at their cores.
My other big passion is spinning stories that center around sex, shame, religion, and becoming who we most want to be. I like my characters to be diverse with different shapes, sizes, and quirks. It's important to me that they feel real, as if you could walk down the street and bump into one.
I've loved writing for as long as I could remember. The first story I remember creating happened to be Sailor Moon fan fiction that I emailed to a friend, haha. I loved the process of playing in a different world and seeing where my characters would take me. I took writing courses in high school and college, and each one felt like home. I still remember when one teacher simply assumed I'd choose writing as a career path, as if there was no other option. It took me awhile to find my way there, but here I am!
My joy for narrating began when I'd first read my rough drafts to a past partner. I felt even closer to my characters and became addicted to bringing them to life. It's been wild to learn everything from scratch and on a budget, but I have my beloved microphone, a sexy, insulated closet, and a whole bucket-load of patience and exuberance.
In normal life, I'm outside a fair amount and stay active. I love yoga, and my body gets crabby if I don't do it every day. I'm ambiamorous, kinky, gender fluid, and omnisexual. I love Asian and Mexican food and have an insane Texas heeler. I'm lucky to get to hang out with my random assortment of partners plus an amazing tribe of friends who are the best support system a person could ask for.
