About this author

Todd Young writes books that sit on the borderline between gay erotica and m/m romance.

Generally, I aim to write erotica that goes a little further than the average. I spend a lot of time on my characters, trying to make them as believable as possible. While my stories are sexual fantasies, I want them to have a deeper meaning, and a quality of unexpectedness. To some extent, I am attempting to write literature, but I want my stories to be genuinely engaging. I want them to be easy to read, while at the same time leaving the reader with the feeling that they have read something meaningful.

I hope both men and women will find my stories satisfying. They revolve around romance, though there is often much more going on in the texts.

Angel is now available at Amazon and Smashwords.




Angel's spent the last three weeks locked in a medical facility, testing a new aphrodisiac. He’s picked something up, some mysterious disease, and now, he’s changing. His entire skeletal structure is wefting and warping, and according to Finn, he’s... Read more of this blog post »

Description: Joel is young and lonely and a little oversexed. When a thief leaves him naked at the beach, he turns to Sean, a striking, dark-haired stranger for help. Sean offers Joel a towel, and once they get talking, he tells him all about the Umberto Institute, a medical facility where they’re testing a new aphrodisiac. Sean is signed up for a three week, live-in trial. A new aphrodisiac? It’s not something Joel really needs. But when Sean tells him they’re paying $4,500, he starts to think. $4,500 and three weeks with Sean? It sounds too good to be true. But once Joel is in the institute, will he ever get out?

Beach Climb by Luke King
" My cohesive thought processing necessary for assembling a review ceased to exist at the acute onset of vivid imagery of perspiring masculine man muscles, encased in straps, ropes, clips, and sweat..

Sorry..I couldn't be of more help.

“Joel arrived at Hemmant beach in a pair of white nylon shorts. He knew they'd be see-through once they were wet, and he deliberately didn't wear any underwear, because he wanted to be in the surf, practically naked, and have people looking at him.”
Todd Young, Subject 19

“It was written in a red felt marker, and his first thought was that it was from Sarah, though it didn't look like a girl's writing. A girl would make it pretty, with kisses and smiley faces, and she would do it in colored pens and make an envelope as well.”
Todd Young, Jumbo

“Now I'm going out to dinner with my parents."
"Your parents?"
"Yeah. They really do exist."
"It's eight-thirty."
"Yeah, well if you're rich and pretentious you're supposed to eat late. It's one of the rules."
"Doesn't that become tiresome?"
Todd Young, Jumbo

“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”

Mel Thanks for accepting my friend invite, Todd :-)

Kynthos-the-Archer Hi Todd, thanks for your friendvite. And yes, I am very keen your books for they are quite out there. I do enjoy nonconformity especially in fiction. I loved to be kept in suspense of what's to come and to be surprised at the end. And your book did that.

Irina Z Don't ever hesitate, Todd! You have fans who love your books! Add those any time, if you want. It's always a pleasure for a reader to feel close to an author he likes and appreciates :)

Todd Young Oh, you shouldn't be honoured. I always hesitate to ask. I don't want to come across as pushing my work.
