About this author

Stephen del Mar is a fresh voice in Southern Gay Fiction. His Bennett Bay collection of books and stories explore life in that unique corner of the American South known as Florida. He also writes fantasy and science-fiction. Del Mar lives in the Tampa Bay region of Florida and enjoys Key Lime Pie and mango margaritas, but not at the same time. He also finds constantly barking Chihuahuas nearly as distracting to the writing process as Facebook and Twitter, but don’t tell his housemate.

I thought substituting semen for blood would make for a good twist. After all, wouldn’t the seed of life have more power than blood? It is certainly more fun to come by. I also wanted my main character to believe that magic was absurd and then have that absurdity bitch slap him.(less)
