I’m a writer of young adult fiction, specializing in contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, and historical genres. My books range from a superhero fantasy series to reworked folktales to Victorian ghost fiction. My themes are coming-of-age, with very little focus on romance (most of the time) and more on individual growth with some adventure thrown in.

It has been a while, hasn't it? o__O;;; Sorry, folks. I've been trying to allow myself more downtown than usual and at the same time work steadily toward finishing my WIP, which is officially titled The Porcelain Carnival (i.e., Masks #7). I'm down to maybe the last two chapters, and when I at first thought it was going to be my shortest installment of the series at under 60K words, the climact... Read more of this blog post »

“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

“And so the Afternoon Weekday Date Scorecard went like this: gay boys, 3. Bedsheets, below zero. Vatican-enforced check on virginity, 10. Sometimes life just plain sucked beyond the suckiest of suckage. And I was out of clean bedsheets, too.”
Hayden Thorne, Curse of Arachnaman
