About meI write fantasy, historical fantasy, science fiction, and contemporary fiction. Suspense plays an important role in many of the tales; the conflict in those tales is both external and internal. My stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. The mood of the stories, however, is not one of unrelieved gloominess: friendship, heterosexual love, gay love, and faithful service are recurring themes.

My LibraryThing author page. Plus, my published e-books, as catalogued at LibraryThing. Or you can visit my Website.

About my libraryParental guidance is recommended for minors browsing this library, as some of the books I own have mature content.

My favorite novels tend to fall into the same genres I write in: fantasy, historical fantasy, historical fiction, science fiction, military fiction, spy fiction, friendship fiction, and various forms of male/male fiction: gay fiction (including romance fiction, leather fiction, and erotic fiction), original gen and original slash fiction (yes, I occasionally read fan fiction too), and yaoi fiction.

As far as nonfiction is concerned, I most often read Victorian and Edwardian memoirs (that's research material for me) and writings on simplicity (monasticism, etc.).

I think we're both somewhat ubiquitous!

Have a good one!

Hi,
found you through your comment on Ryes' page. I do like gay historical fantasy. Dark settings (like prison) also a plus. Which of your books would your recommend I start with with (or which was on Ryes' wishlist)? :-)

Nice to meet you too!

When I read the summary, it looked very interesting and I put it on my wishlist so I can remember to buy it later.
Stagnating, perhaps--but there.... ;)
