RJ Blain suffers from a Moleskine journal obsession, a pen fixation, and a terrible tendency to pun without warning.

When she isn't playing pretend, she likes to think she's a cartographer and a sumi-e painter. In reality, she herds cats and a husband, and obeys the commands of Tsu Dhi, the great warrior fish.

In her spare time, she daydreams about being a spy. Should that fail, her contingency plan involves tying her best of enemies to spinning wheels and quoting James Bond villains until she is satisfied.

Originally, it was going to be a trilogy, but I'm going to conclude Sean's story in the next volume, so it'll be a longer title as a result! I'm expecting 2019 or 2020, but things might change!(less)

R.J. Blain answered Indira Rivera's question: R.J. Blain
Very probably not. I just have no interest in writing a triad. They’re amusing for me to include as side characters, but I don’t enjoy reading ménage, so I have no interest in writing one. Sorry!

Playing with Fire by R.J. Blain
“What can I say? He’s a man, and as my queen and bride says, men are stupid. Especially me, for having taught our son to be a man, too, who in turn taught his son. We’re a plague, us men. At least we’re handsome enough to keep around despite being stupid enough to tempt our women to murder us.”
