Having been, at various times and under different names, a minister’s daughter, a computer programmer, the author of paranormal mysteries, a game designer, an organic farmer, an avid hiker, and a profound sleeper, Eli is happily embarking on yet another incarnation as a m/m romance author.

As an addicted reader of such, she is tinkled pink when an author manages to combine literary merit, vast stores of humor, melting hotness and eye-dabbing sweetness into one story. She promises to strive to achieve most of that most of the time. She currently lives on a farm in Pennsylvania with her husband, three bulldogs, three cows and six chickens. All of them (except for the husband) are female, hence explaining the naked men that have taken up resid

Well, to be honest, I haven't started it yet! I'm currently working on a novel for Dreamspinner and then I have to write my Christmas story. And THEN I will work on Howl #2. The lovely thing about self-pub is you can get a book to the readers within weeks of finishing it so I'm still hoping for a Nov release. Thanks for the push and inspiration!

This past weekend, I went to see “Love, Simon” on opening day with a lovely author friend who was visiting, RJ Scott, and her husband. I expected to like the film, but nope. I loved it.


It’s a standard high school film set-up with a theater group, wacky principle, and a group of friends. One of the friends, Simon, is secretly gay. He hasn’t not come out for any profound reason. His family is pr...

This was really good. Everything that Landon and Brian went through during the shooting and in the aftermath felt honest and real and their romance was slowly developing and very tender and beautiful. Definitely not an easy read though, b..." Read more of this review »

But it's Eli Easton, whom I adore, so I took a leap and opened this book. And I'm so glad I did.

“No matter what you do with your life during the day, there's always that moment when you have to wake up with yourself, with yourself and with the person that's sleeping beside you. That's the person that you make a home with, discuss life's big decisions with, share your finances, eat, shop, maybe parent with. That's the person you share your body with forever, kiss, touch, the one you sit on the couch with and watch movies, the one who gives you a hug when you've had a rough day. That's the person you put up a Christmas tree with and arrive home with for the holidays, the person you watch grow old and who still loves you when you're not as nice to look at, the one who holds your hand when you're dying. And none of that had anything to do with wrestling.”
Eli Easton, Superhero

“I’m not very good at multi-tasking. My therapist says I have an over-developed ability to focus.”
Eli Easton, Blame It on the Mistletoe

“Say yes, Jordan,” he said, shifting closer.
“No,” I said.
Owen smiled. “Close enough.” And then he kissed me.”

“I didn’t kiss him back even as my body went wild internally, blood being police escorted to certain extremities, endorphins diving out of my pituitary gland like they were in a Busby Berkeley musical, my heart going all heavy metal.”
Eli Easton, Superhero

“What you are to me is the guy that I’ve been madly in love with since sixth grade. You’re the guy I think about every night when I’m in bed by myself. You’re the one who doesn’t want me but insists on keeping me tied so close that I can’t have anyone else, who keeps one hand on my collar and the other hand up his girlfriend’s skirt. And I can’t do it anymore!” ~ Jordy”
