CHRIS SCULLY lives in Toronto, Canada. She grew up spinning romantic stories in her head and always dreamed of one day being a writer even though life had other plans. Her characters have accompanied her through career turns as a librarian and an IT professional, until finally, to escape the tedium of a corporate day job, she took a chance and began putting her daydreams down on paper.

Tired of the same old boy-meets-girl stories, she found a home in M/M romance and strives to give her characters the happy endings they deserve. She divides her time between a mundane 9-5 cubicle job and a much more interesting fantasy life. When she’s not working or writing (which isn’t often these days) she loves puttering in the garden and traveling. She is

But this year I just happen to have another gay romance novella coming out later in the spring. It's called "Happy", from Dreamspinner Press, and it's about a Greek-Canadian man torn between family expectations and his own happiness. It also features characters from an earlier novella, "Inseparable".

I am also just starting work on my next novel which I'm very excited about. This is a romantic-suspense novel about a disgraced journalist who returns home to his small town to see his estranged father before he dies. A reunion with his childhood best friend, Ben, reawakens old feelings, and he becomes caught up in a twenty-year-old mystery that could jeopardize any romance between them.

It was going to be a battle-of-the-wills-type story, and to some extent that still remains, but as I built the character of Archer, it began to change. From the beginning I knew Archer had to come from a non-traditional background, but I was stuck on the details. In 2014 as I was writing this, Canadian news was filled with stories of missing and murdered indigenous women. It was a political and social awakening of sorts for me. It made me think about how we're shaped by our upbringing, and more specifically, what it would be like to grow up not knowing what had happened to your mother. That's when I decided to make Archer an aboriginal man struggling with his identity. It's not the focus of the novel, but it certainly shapes Archer. From that point on, this became a more serious story about love and loss, the nature of family, and overcoming the obstacles fate puts in our way.(less)

I’m a terrible author and other things I’ve learned

Last week I signed the rights release for all my titles at Dreamspinner and soon my titles with them will start to disappear. It was a bittersweet moment. When I first stumbled across Dreamspinner a decade ago as a reader, it was amazing to realize there was actually a genre for the stories I was already spinning in my head. They bought my first (and still most successful) story, and that’s what e
