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)

description

Thanks, Susan, for hosting me.

Vampire soul bonds are part of the mythos of The Sleepless City—the urban fantasy series which is a joint project between myself and Elizabeth Noble.

In The Sleepless City universe, vampires can only turn a human—make them a vampire—for a short period of time around the anniversary of when they were turned themselves. The older the vampi... Read more of this blog post »

“Chi-cken... Good.”
Leeloo in The Fifth Element

“What's unnatural is homophobia. Homo sapiens is the only species in all of nature that responds with hate to homosexuality.”
Alex Sanchez, The God Box

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
