GGR: When and Why did you start writing in this genre?
I started writing MM eight years ago. I was asleep on the sofa and woke up to see Captain Jack Harkness dancing with the real Captain Jack in Torchwood, a spin-off from Doctor Who. It was like a light went on in my head. I wanted to write their story. I stayed with fanfiction until I took the plunge to submit these stories to Dreamspinner, Silver and Torquere.
GGR: What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing in this genre?
I love being part of this community. Thank you. You’re amazing. It’s been a long time since I’ve belonged anywhere and I love it.
GGR: What was the first book you read in this genre?
Bareback by Chris Owen. Faith Ashlin gave me a book to read. I didn’t even know the genre existed. I didn’t have an ereader at that point. I had to buy a Kindle to read my books. Bareback is still one of my favourites in the whole genre and ignited my love of cowboys. I love Jake and Tor with a passion.
GGR: What are you working on now?
A crime series, a Regency series and a contemporary series.
GGR: What else would you like the readers to know about you or the wonderful world of writing.
I hate this question lol. Writing is the best job ever. I just want you to know that.
