L. Sara Bysterveld has dedicated herself to creating community for polyamorous triads since 2013 when she and her two partners decided to give it a go as a triad themselves. A freelance writer with articles published in magazines such as BeatRoute, Birthing, Leap!, New Home Living and Condo Living, as well as several current blog ghostwriting gigs, Bysterveld felt that writing a book-length introduction to life as a triad was the next logical step in her individual contribution toward normalizing this relationship style.
Bysterveld started the Polyamory Calgary group in 2009, growing that community to a vibrant and supportive hub of polyamorous families in and around the city before stepping back in 2013.
Bysterveld is also a former columnist for both BeatRoute, where she wrote the popular sex column Doin’ It, and New Home/Condo Living, where she wrote the eco-living column Green Living.
