Beth83 is an author of spanking stories. While the vast majority of her stories involve a girl (many with protagonists named "Beth" or "Lauren Elizabeth") being spanked by a parent or parental figure, Beth readily acknowledges she was rarely spanked in real life, so her stories are not autobiographical in nature. Some of Beth's later stories were written for the Summer Story Contests held in the soc.sexuality.spanking newsgroup. The majority of her stories are freely available at the Library of Spanking Fiction. Her story series "Lisa in New Zealand" is listed in Alvaro's Archive of Spanking Stories.
