To procreate or not to procreate: that is the question.
The choice, in itself, is a big conversation in society, and often something that is highly judged. Even the relationships we have with our own parents are expected to fit a norm that doesn’t actually exist.
The Keeping It Under Wraps anthology series provides a safe space to change the narrative, to speak openly about individual experiences, and in the end to understand that while each experience is different, we are not so different from each other. Parenthood, Uncensored is the second book in this series following on from Sex, Uncensored, published May 4th 2021.
This anthology highlights twenty-four international voices telling their stories their way
– stories about love, loss, hope, shame, pain, loneliness and more.

About the Authors
Alnaaze is a writer, humanitarian and melanated Mona living in Switzerland.
Her goal, as it has always been, is to help amplify the voices of those who are not heard, sharing their stories, in a way only she knows how: words, and a very loud voice. Usually found on social media complaining about something or other, but mostly people such as racists, homophobes or people who don’t appreciate her TV binging skills. Napping is her superpower, and if she says she likes you, consider yourself one of the chosen few.
Louise is a mother and writer living in Switzerland.
She writes across all genres and covers many different themes and topics, and runs the Writers & Illustrators of Zurich group. A strong believer in the importance of discussing mental health issues, diversity inclusion and equal opportunities. She is a proud ADHDer who is often bouncing from one coffee shop to the next wearing a rainbow of colours.
Apparently too nice… and apologises way too much.
Tracy is a teacher, mother and writer based in Switzerland.
Originally hailing from New Zealand, she has an opinion on everything ever. She might be the most middle-of-the-road member of the KIUW team. She is fond of flash fiction and short stories at the creepy end of normal. She recently switched loyalties between coffee shops, but is otherwise very attached to literacy teaching and finally getting to the bottom of her infinite to-be-read pile. She tries to pretend to be interested in other people, but it’s hard.
