Simply because, as a cisgender woman, once I became interested in the notion of gender on a continuum, particularly where it is relevant to female-to-male gender dysphoria, I realised there was not a lot of rich, positive, real-to-life fiction out there either for the FTM readers [of fiction] or their SOFFAs or questioning youths to relate to.
It is my hope that Morgan – a 23-year-old, post-chest op, trans-man – and his life journey – will go some way towards filling a little of this unfortunate vacuum.
