K.D. West is an American writer of erotic ménage romance and fine adult fiction. Her first piece of published erotica, Thing of Beauty, came out in 2012.
"I’m an author of steamy stories who happens to be a teacher; these things don’t mix well in public, so I tend to be fairly quiet about real life in my blogging," she says.
It is one of the reasons why there are no public photos of the author.
K.D. West has been writing for as long as she can remember, and after a hiatus, she was reintroduced to writing by a fantasy series. It led her to write fanfiction, including adult fics.
You can find West's fanfiction under the pen name Antosha on Archive of Our Own, Phoenix Song, and other archives.
She eventually wrote a piece for her own unfinished novel, which she revisited and reworked into a story set in an American high school with the protagonist's teacher as the older woman.
West has now written more than 50 books.
