Louis is a gay romance author born and raised in South Africa. He was a shy outcast who had few friends in school; generally feeling excluded and on the fringe of society. However, when he discovered gay romance and erotica in 2007, at the age of seventeen, his mind and world opened up.

He wrote his first story, A Better Life, longhand in a 197 page spiral notebook, on his bed every night with a pillow curled under his chin. Although the book wouldn’t be published until 2011, with the now defunct Silver Publishing, he found the experience entirely liberating. He's considered himself a writer ever since.

Louis also contributes as a reviewer to Kimmers' Erotic Book Banter blog - follow his reviews of non-mainstream MM novels there! http://goo.g

Luke Casey – Hot Aussie Rugby Player Naked (NSFW)

Everyone knows I’m a massive rugby fan – although I know next to nothing of the game or its rules. I’m all over rugby players though. Growing up in South Africa, rugby is our unofficial religion and most everyone is into it. I love the guys, the raw masculinity, the unapologetic bro-ness of the team and the homoeroticContinue Reading… Read more of this blog post »

“You always used to comfort us by saying you had everything in life because you had twice the hands to hold.”
Louis Stevens, Twice the Hands to Hold

“Just promise me you won’t let the unimportant things weigh you down. Promise me.” “I promise.” “And take risks. You know, take chances. You only get your twenties once. It’s one of the best seasons of your life. Don’t let it pass you by because you’re scared of anything.”
Louis Stevens, Twice the Hands to Hold

“Nothing stays the same forever. You know that. Life is a season full of seasons.”
Louis Stevens, Twice the Hands to Hold

“I think some love you can stand to let go of because it's ultimately for the best, but other types you have to stick with until the day you die even when it's hard.You have to think about that before you run away from wherever you are. And then when you know, you either stay or you go and pray thatyou're making the right decision.”
Nick Burd, The Vast Fields of Ordinary

“Meaning, yes -- I don't really exist except on the page or in the back of your brain. But if you think it's weird a fictional character's telling this story, you ain't seen what happened, yet.”
Kyle Michel Sullivan, The Lyons' Den

“Its hard to show people everything, you know? You never know what they'll do with it once they have it.”
Nick Burd, The Vast Fields of Ordinary

“Jesse had a broken heart.”
Kol Anderson, Slave

“If I look closely, I bet I could see my own past, lying on the floor somewhere between the ancient jukebox and the pool table.”
Kol Anderson, The Perfect Place
