G.R. Lyons stumbled into writing as a form of trauma recovery when traditional therapy wasn't working.

Then the story ideas just kept on coming.

Pulling from a vivid imagination as well as real-life experience as a trans man, a sexual assault survivor, and a person living with mental illness, Lyons has written multiple, interconnected series set within his fictional world of the Shifting Isles.

When not writing, Lyons can be found belly dancing around the house, studying anarcho-capitalist philosophy, buried in his never-ending TBR pile, or working out at the local CrossFit gym.

Another thing that really helps is exercise -- get the blood flowing, the body moving, and it helps clear the mind and let things click. Sometimes, I'll stumble upon something entirely unexpected -- from reading a book or an article, or a general conversation, or a chance encounter -- and it provides the spark that fills in the gap with which I was wrestling. Every day is a little bit different.(less)

Too many to choose!

Recently, Max and Charlie from Cate Ashwood's The Storm Before the Calm, because they're so sweet together without being overly (and unrealistically) saccharine.

Mike and Sean from TJ Klune's Murmuration. Klune said it was his most romantic book to date, and I fully agree. Such a sweet, slow-burn romance.

Liz and Darcy from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Because...well, come on, it's Pride and Prejudice!

Locke and Jean from Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamore. Ok, not a romantic couple, just a pair of thieves, but I love their friendship and their banter. So perfect.

Malec! Magnus and Alec from Cassandra Clare's Shadowhunter books. They were the first openly gay fictional couple I came across (that I can recall), and I loved every minute of them on the page. I think I read those books more for that couple than for any other reason.

Benjamin and Jace from Jay Bell's Something About... series. I'm still not over that one. So beautiful and heartbreaking.(less)

“All Right” is NOT Alright

This is one of my personal pet peeves. Many editors will say that “alright” is not even a word and that “all right” is the only acceptable usage, but I will absolutely and forever disagree with this.


When I read “all right”, my brain takes that phrase to mean that everything is ideal, perfect, as it should be. It is all right. All of it. Every bit.


But ask a person how they’re doing, and when their

“Why can't you say it?" I hardened my voice. "Because I'm telling you, you never have. I'd have remembered."
He stared at me with disbelief. [...]

“Fuckdamn,” said Conté, totally unable to help himself when the sums involved vanished over his mental horizon. “Beg pardon, Doña Sofia.”
“You should.” She drained her snifter in one quick unladylike gulp. “Your calculations are off. This merits a triple fuckdamn at least.”
