Biography

Suresha was born in Detroitmarker, Michiganmarker. In a book chapter on bears of color, the author stated that he had some Native American ancestry.

Suresha's nonfiction anthology, Bears on Bears: Interviews & Discussions (2002), includes 25 dialogues with 57 bear-identified men and bear-lovers from around the world, such as comedian Bruce Vilanch, porn model Jack Radcliffe, and Survivor star Richard Hatch. In the introduction, Suresha asserts that Bears on Bears is "the first interview book ... compiled primarily from online interactions" using Internet chat technology.
