People often ask me...
...how I got started as a writer.
I've always written, right from an early age. I was always writing stories as a child, and as I grew up, I had the idea of writing a novel, like so many people do. My first book was based on an idea that I kicked around for about a year, before I actually decided to do something about it. But once I started writing it, it wouldn't stop coming! Actually sitting down to write stemmed from the desire to do something creative at a time in my life when I was at a very low point. My writing was the only positive thing in my life, and once the process had started, it simply flowed out of me.
...why write gay romance?
I first discovered erotic romances in 2009. One such book featured two male characters who were bisexual, and their scenes together were something I'd never encountered before - but definitely found intriguing. After searching for similar books (f/m/m), I took the plunge and tried a gay erotic romance - and I was hooked!
The vast majority of gay romances that I came across had a Happy Ever After ending, which I loved, and characters who weren't perfect by any means, but who met, fell in love and wanted to be monogamous.
Dreamspinner Press was one of the first publishers of gay romance that I discovered, and I quickly began to build up my own library of ebooks. Those writers truly inspired me: they are the main reason that I decided to fire up the laptop and finally write something of my own.
