About this author

Born and raised in Zutphen, the Netherlands, Blaine spent many hours of her sheltered youth reading, day dreaming, making up stories and acting them out with her barbies.

Though she wrote her first gay fiction as a teenager, Blaine’s inspiration was revived by the wonderful gay romance called ‘Beautiful Thing’—adaptation of the play by Jonathan Harvey—through which she gained some very dear gay friends and a postponed bout of puberty that caused an introverted and shy Blaine to finally grow into herself.

Well… I was awake, at least. Thanks to Will and Amanda for letting me ramble about when I first started writing, scarification, polyamory, […]

Emanuela ~plastic duck~ added a status update: Dear Authors, if you think 3-stars is a bad review and the readers are a flock of sheep that won't buy your book because of that, think again. If your book didn't hold my attention after the 25% mark, it's not necessarily my fault, so before telling me I didn't understand what you meant, try harder the next time. I might need to open my mind, you might need to write better. We'll like each other the next time. Maybe.
