About this author

I'm a single mom to a great 19 year old daughter at university, and I have a full-time job as well. I started reading m/m romance about 4 years ago, then went to reviewing and then writing.

Some dares and prompting of friends led me to the role of author and they've always been my biggest cheerleaders.

I didn't dislike this, but I found it rather slow in the first 1/4. To be honest, I closed it, then came back to it a week or more later, and skipped to the big coming out scene, then I was hooked from there on, but I know I skipped over some stuff o ...more

I don't know, I don't have a category for erotica, but that's what it is, with a slap dash of mates at the end. It's less than 70 pages and 50 must be sex in some form. Pretty much all of it what I consider non-con. Sure he consents, but he knows if ...more

I do have a soft spot for characters like Phiz who are just a bit on the flighty disorganized side with a good heart who can throw a staid responsible guy off kilter. This is very much that and it just appealed with the author's usual humour and a to ...more

This is a tad formulaic with the main threat to the trio and sometimes I felt it was a bit preachy about prejudice, but on the whole I have been craving some new m/m/m (where did it all go?) so it hit the right spot. I thought the two cat shifters we ...more

“That had been David’s motto apparently. He’d never even suggested Jeremy try S&M or B&D or LMNOP. Whatever the hell it was called. Good thing, he supposed, since while he was all about “whatever floats your boat,” he was certainly vanilla in the sex department; maybe butterscotch ripple, but definitely not rocky road”
