I like chocolate, coffee and donuts, sometimes all at the same time.

I love evenings around a campfire singing in the company of good friends.

I like listening to the dawn chorus even if I've been awake all night.

I like reading stories with characters that are filled with hope even in their darkest hours.

I like happy endings.

I like writing M/M romance (with happy endings of course).

pop over to my blog for insights into my stories and some excerpts. Follow me on Twitter and on Facebook.

Everyone does. I just don't acknowledge it. It's never total anyway, simply a blockage when I'm trying to write one story and can't get into the flow. It's like when you're trying to speak French but can only think of German words. So I write something else for a while, hence the fact that I'm always working on more than one thing. Either that or I have ADHD!(less)

“He chuckles. “So you’re saying you were influenced by teenage vampires and kids on adventures without their parents?” he asks with a shrug. “That’s pretty much what I’ve been influenced by as well.”
“Yeah, but come on, this one has Kiefer Sutherland in it when he was super hot,” I tell him. “Before he started looking like his dad.”
“Kiefer Sutherland has a dad?” Cal asks me and I groan, because I know where this is going from the impish tone in his voice. “He must be even older than you.” I notice his smirk and I nudge him playfully.
“Asshole,” I hiss. “Put the damn DVD into the machine and let’s watch it, then you can decide who was the hotter vampire: Kiefer Sutherland or Robert Pattinson.
“Don’t forget David Boreanaz,” he reminds me. “He was a hot vampire too.”

“I don't know about you, but I just can't rule out finding the love of my life simply because he's twenty four years older than me. I'm only sorry you had to wait so long for me to reach the right age to come looking for you.”

“If you want to write anything that works, you have to go with the grain of your talent, not against it. If your talent is inert and sullen in the face of business or politics...but takes fire at the thought of ghosts and vampires and witches and demons then feed the flames, feed the flames.”
Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials

"Just considering what birthday games Whyborne will be missing out on thanks to this wretched idea of the director's," she replied cheerfully. "I've gotten to Blind Man's Duff."

Oh, I love it. Just when I need a boost as I plough through my edits.
Raevyn is a very patient editor but I bet she groans a bit when she sees my mess of punctuation.

Is that Tom Hiddleston? Because he was one of my inspirations for Alex. So this is basically Alex holding Rupert. I think Ethan took this photo :D

Yeah, I think I may give up on trying to add all the books I've ever read :P it's such a great way to archive and recommend though!

Dawn Sister So I started rating books I have read and kept on going through all the recommendations until I realised, because of the work I do I have read just about every kid's book there is. I could have gone on forever rating these books but I don't think it gives a picture of what I read in my personal life. One minute I'm rating and reviewing a gritty M/M thriller/romance and the next I'm rating "Meg and Mog" and "Mr Tickle"
