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 started off as a writer of young adult fiction, specializing in contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, and historical genres. My books ranged from a superhero fantasy series to reworked and original folktales to Victorian ghost fiction. I've since expanded to New Adult fiction, which reflects similar themes as my YA books and varies considerably in terms of romantic and sexual content.

While I've published with a small press in the past, I now self-publish my books.

As I've noted over at Twitter, I've resigned myself to having The Amaranth Maze for my second and last novel for this year. Whatever schemes I had regarding a careful tweaking of the book's release date have all gone to hell, and I gotta stop fighting the currents.

What with our upcoming moving date suddenly getting pushed a week sooner, we're now scrambling to get our act together, which means... 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

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

“Hey, is this what they call the gay agenda?" Spirit Wire called. "Gay boys indoctrinating two innocent, uber straight girls with dirty same-sex kissing?"
"What, are you feeling a little gay yet? No? Okay, let me kiss him some more and see what happens," Calais yelled back. I thought I heard Miss Pyro snort and giggle.”
