About the Author

Liv Wright believed that the more intimacy we let ourselves experience, the happier and healthier we’ll be. A seasoned storyteller who brings sensitivity to her writings about intimacy, Liv’s voice was one that invites members of the “sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll” generation to dive into the new tides of intimacy that await in late adulthood.


In 2012, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and widened her orbit of inquiry to include the challenges of disability in mature relationships. Liv explored the subject of intimacy for a long time. Her first essay about it appeared in Tenderheaded, an anthology on black women and hair (Simon & Schuster 2001). Her contribution to the volume, “If You Let Me Make Love to You, then Why Can’t I Touch Your Hair?” gave readers a good laugh at what some black women go through to keep their fresh-from-the-salon look while they have fun between the sheets. Liv’s writing also appears in the erotic anthology, Dark Eros (St. Martin’s Press, 1997), and for more than a decade she was a frequent contributor to the International Review of African American Art, an arts journal published by the Hampton University Museum.


Liv held a BS in Communications from Northwestern University and wrote extensively for businesses, human service organizations, and arts publications.


On January 23, 2023, Liv transitioned to the ancestral realm. She left this body of work as her legacy.
