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.

It explores that matrix of family and community with a modern gay twist. It gets deep into my Bennett Bay world and many of the characters from my other stories stop by to say “hi” and have a glass of sweet tea. (less)

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)

"I realize that I'm in the minority by awarding this book 5 stars. Now, to be fair, the book had some issues and got off to a rocky start for me. The high rating did not come easily and was not a foregone conclusion until the last 20% of the book.
