E. Davies was proficient in real estate ad shorthand (the old-fashioned newspaper kind) by the age of nine. Growing up moving constantly taught him what people have in common, the ways relationships are formed, and the dangers of “miscellaneous” boxes.

As a teen, he tore through a stack of found romance novels, wishing someone had written similar for M/M, though he could never find anything at Chapters or the library. Just after graduating university in 2013, semi-out and clutching his English B.A. for dear life, he stumbled on an Amazon M/M short story. It was a whole new... phrase he dares not repeat for fear of lawyers. It shone and shimmered splendidly, though.

I am actually Canadian, and I live in the UK! :)

I choose to use US English because many readers don't know the differences between US, Canadian, and British English and will rate and review books poorly for "typos" if you use non-US English, especially if the book is set in North America. It's easier to standardize my books to relatively American English. Some things, I'm too stubborn to change. For example, I don't like how the word vise looks, and my characters use certain Canadian slang. (Give 'er!)

I chose to set the Riley Brothers series in a small Canadian town in New Brunswick because I wanted to show that many people in small towns can be supportive of LGBT people without needing to struggle about it, yet balance that against the frustrating reality of being gay in a small town; because Atlantic Canada is underrepresented in fiction compared to most American cities; and because the particular city I chose doesn't have a minor league team... among other reasons. :)

“Kyle leaned in to press their lips together gently, raising his other hand to cup the back of Nic’s neck. Oh, sweetheart. I want to help you be… you.”
E. Davies, Flaunt

“But the biological impulse to have kids was still there. Sure, some people didn’t experience it and didn’t want kids, but many others like him did; being trans didn’t change that. The impulse to have a child of his own blood had little to do with his need to be in the right body. It was bittersweet to see people who didn’t have to think about how to fulfill their biological imperatives and weigh up their life plans at age eighteen.”
E. Davies, Flaunt
