About this author

I'm an award-winning author of LGBTQ erotic romance, often designated as M/M (gay) and F/F (lesbian) romance. I write for Dreamspinner Press, Siren Publishing, and Evernight Publishing. I'm a Finn but I write in English. I adore gorgeous men getting it on with other gorgeous men. I also like pop music, chocolate, saunas, and the seasons in Finland. Join my newsletter HERE.

If I'm too exhausted to write, I listen to music or read a book, watch a movie or go for a walk in the woods to rejuvenate and to find my inspiration again. If my head refuses to work and give me usable text, I do something physically relaxing, like go for a swim or a walk, something physical to get my mind to unwind and clear the blockage. I've found that if you figure out why you can't write, you can also think up a way to get past it.(less)

But I guess that's ultimately the decision of those who read my work. Nonetheless, I try to learn from past mistakes and hone my craft. In the beginning I wrote very flowery erotica but I've toned that down since then, I think.

Two, having people read my stories. Every time someone tells me they like or love what I've written, I smile like a loon. Every. Single. Time. Even if they don't like it, there's a nerve-wracking excitement to be had from exposing others to what is rattling around in my brain. It's a risk to expose my inner workings to the world, but that's a risk that everyone with a creative job has to accept.

Three, the possibility of making writing into a career, even though that wonderful future so far has eluded me. I hope one day I will be able to go into this with my eyes wide open, with experience under my belt, and the royalties providing a stable subsistence. Not yet though, but hope lives.(less)

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
