"We all know every author on the face of the planet (aside from Stephenie Meyer) was once a precocious child who began writing stories, or at least wanting to, as soon as s/he had some cognitive capacity. Well, I can't remember that far back, so I don't know if I've had an astonishing, lifelong affinity for words or not.

Anyway, I do have 2-1/2 degrees in English and have worked as a teacher, sales promotion specialist, and editor. Although I prefer writing m/m erotic romance, I've also written other stuff including straight romance. My subgenres are all over the place: paranormal, steampunk, traditional fantasy, urban fantasy, and contemporary. I've also written sweeter romances as well as a topical dystopian thriller called ACTS OF THE SAINTS that's also available at Amazon (but under a different pen name).

Thus far, my fiction has been published by Dreamspinner Press, Loose Id, Samhain, Liquid Silver Books, Ellora's Cave, Cerridwen Press, and a few other companies. Most of it's available only in e-book form, but several titles have also been issued in print.

Sorry, can't relate any cute anecdotes from my life -- they're all too embarrassing to post here. I live in the oft-frozen tundra of Wisconsin with a couple of mutts from the local animal shelter and a man who isn't nearly as cute as they are."

The Zero Knot won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best LGBT Young Adult/Coming of Age.

Eighteen-year-old Jess Bonner is casting off pretense-and, with it, some friends from his past who aren't particularly trustworthy. In just a few months he'll be starting college, and it's time for him to admit the truth: he's gay, not bi, and only one of his old friends holds any kind of real interest for him. When Dylan Finch, aka Mig, follows his lead and puts some distance between himself and the old crowd, he and Jess give in to a mutual attraction that's been building for years.

But navigating a fledgling relationship isn't easy for beginners, and forces they can't seem to control keep tripping them up: sexual appetite, personal insecurities, fear of discovery, and more. They need clarity. They need courage. Just as they're on the verge of finding both, a vindictive act of jealousy sends one of them to jail. All their hard-won victories are in danger of falling to dust. And the only way to save what they have is to recognize it for what it is... and fight for its integrity.

she does, and indeed she also won a Rainbow Award as Best Cover, or better Anne Cain did, but the cover was for a KZ Snow's novel
