Beth Burnett (born November 21, 1970)

Beth Burnett has spent much of the last decade wandering aimlessly through life. She quit her job in corporate payroll and moved to a Caribbean island where she was a professional beach bum and an unprofessional beach bartender. Though she had a lot of experience writing short stories on bar napkins, it wasn't until her fortieth birthday that she decided to get serious about this thing and write a novel. "Man Enough" won a Rainbow Award in two categories; transgender fiction and debut novelist. Her second novel, "Andy's Song" was released in May 2013. When she isn't writing novels, Beth can be found swearing over research papers as she nears completion of her BA in English. She also writes a weekly column on spirituality for Lightworker's World. In her spare time, she plays the banjo, hikes, reads, spoils her dog, travels as often as the budget allows, and loves, loves, loves.

Man Enough (Beth Burnett, 2012) is a romantic comedy about a single girl's search for love. While juggling a heartbroken roommate, a pot-smoking mom, and a lesbian best friend who might be falling in love with her, Davey Carter meets the man of her dreams. However, her new man may have some secrets of his own.

Man Enough won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best Bisexual / Transgender Contemporary General Fiction and Best Bisexual / Transgender Debut.

Things are going well for Davey Carter. She loves her job and she has a comfortable bed. Granted, her love life is non-existent, her pot-smoking mother is wreaking havoc in her apartment, and she is starting to suspect that her lesbian best friend might be secretly in love with her. But none of that matters when Davey meets Danny, a kind, loving, intelligent man who just may be the love of Davey's life. Until it turns out that Danny is harboring a secret of his own.
