For some twenty years Dr. Josie Pearse has been both living up to and playing down her persona as Angel Strand, Black Lace writer. Black Lace was the first erotic imprint written by women for women. Angel's writing was transgressive for it's time. Her heroines were adventurous in and out of the bedroom, both feminist and self-sabotaging; her eroticism part of life, part of relationship. The women who wrote for Black Lace were accused by the Daily Mail of perverting British womanhood and yet Undressing The Devil, Josie's novel set in Cowes, was number three in The Sun's top ten beach reads the same year.|
Outside being Angel, Josie is an autoethnographer, and regularly speaks on aspects of her life as an orphan. She wrote her PhD at Cardiff, entitled Writing and Not Writing on the Cusp of Life and Fiction. She lives in London.
