I’ve lived most of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area though I wasn’t born there (or, indeed, the USA). I’m married with no kids and three cats and am a cycling nut. I write speculative fiction for gay teens and adults, my stories largely inspired by folklore, gothic fiction, and even superheroes, among others.

New novel (novella?) title, yes. It's the literal English translation of the Old English word, hellcniht, which means "demon". There are no demons in the novel, but there's a lot of devilry going on - or at least the source of the vampire scourge will be demonic in nature, and rather tragic, at that.

What little I can give at the moment as I begin the long, long, looooooong, arduous work of wri... Read more of this blog post »

Jade Astor is officially one of my favorite authors of gothic gay romances. She's definitely got a knack for inventive re-imaginings of familiar stories, and this one takes on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I love the restraint in this novella, the way the ...more

Jury of One by Charlie Cochrane

Another strong mystery from Charlie Cochrane, and another foray into the cockeyed lives of one of my favorite gay odd couples (and their dog). Robin and Adam make a great pair in this series, though in this instance, the POV skews heavily in Robin's ...more

“I hated meatloaf. It was like something that Satan pooped out after an eternity of constipation. So I told Mom because I was honest that way. I sat back, squared my shoulders, and met her eyes, all confident-like.

"Mom, meatloaf's like something that Satan pooped out after an eternity of constipation. It should be outlawed, frankly, and serving it for dinner is like child abuse and should carry with it some pretty stiff penalties.”
Hayden Thorne, Curse of Arachnaman

“Look, if I were straight, you'd be grandparents before your time. You should be relieved that I'm gay. Aren't you grateful?”
Hayden Thorne, Mimi Attacks

“I know what you mean. I usually take it out on my older sister. You can lease her for a weekend or something if you need a psychological punching bag. I'll even give you a discount.”
