This world is an Urban Fantasy story about children born with ambiguous genitalia, mosaic sexuality (Britannica 2020). They are children of the God, Hermaphroditus.

In Greek mythology, Hermaphroditus was the child of Hermes and Aphrodite, and had combined male and female characteristics. In the art of the Hellenistic and Roman periods, this intersexual deity is often depicted in explicitly erotic, and [ portrayed in] seductive poses, with exposed breasts and male genitals

The story will be an adventure where the children of the God save the day… or will they?

Mystical forces outside their control wait for them, always ready to steal them away. Will Sal, our female identifying protagonist, save them from the Adoptat’s and Doctorums before it’s too late?

Stay tuned and pop by occasionally to embark upon Sal’s hero journey. She is the uncut, prophesied to save Hermaphrodite’s children from the surgeons knife, and the murderous hands on the Doctorums and Adoptat’s.
