Dee Aditya likes M/M, and loves romance, so that's what she writes. Her stories tend to be funny, sweet, angsty, cheesy, fluffy, or some combination of those.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh yeah, it involved a little girl and a puppy she rescues. I wrote it for an English assignment in fifth grade :P
What is your writing process?
First I have to make bios for my main characters and the supporting characters, then I make a very loose outline of how the story should go, like a skeleton plot. then I sit down and type out the story, making changes to the outline or editing details as I go. I usually write about 500-1k words in one sitting, but sometimes if I'm really pumped I can write 2k-3k.
Love Like Coffee is a set of contemporary romance stories that are humorous and sweet, with a healthy dose of angst thrown in. The theme for this series is Coffee, and the stories, just like everyone favorite drink, can be hot or warm or sweet or bitter (or bitter-sweet, more like?), and all of them feature people falling in love (and consuming copious amounts of caffeine).
The Indelible series is set in an alternate dystopian universe, where the rich live in sprawling comfort in the upper districts and the poor have to fight to survive in the lower ones. But suffering doesn’t discriminate between the rich and the poor, even if it seems that way sometimes. We can only face forward, knowing no matter how hard the circumstances, there will always be hope, and determination, and love.
The tales in this collection of gay romantic fiction range from sweet to erotic, contemporary to historical, paranormal to grittily realistic. Whether centred around the fear associated with coming out, the thorny issue of trust, or the struggle for survival, each story explores in its own way the courage needed to overcome personal obstacles and take a chance on love.
