Biography

I am is a bestselling author of contemporary MM romance. I write a variety of themes: sweet and fluffy to high angst to taboo, but there is a huge nod in the direction of friendships being integral to each character's experience. I write books that are emotionally realistic, even if liberties are taken with other aspects of my stories.

Reading and writing have always been a part of my life, although my debut book wasn't published until July 2019, when I was 36 years old. My experience has come from reading thousands of books over the years and being a perfectionist when it comes to trying to make things right. I live in the centre of the UK with my two children, who make life worth living, keep me (in)sane and make me laugh. I love Zumba, yoga and walking, all things that can be done alone as I am very introverted.

Crush series: follows everyday people through their lives, finding love, overcoming barriers, working together to find their Happily Ever After. You will find that some of these have a slightly darker side to them.

Daddy series: focuses on those Daddy and boy relationships that mean so much to us all. The caring, dedicated and tolerant of Daddies and the sweet, obedient and naughty boys.

Dark & Divergent series: focuses on the darker, kinkier, taboo side of life. It will have several different lifestyles from ménage to reverse harems; minor kinks to BDSM; age gaps to no gaps.

Charmed series: follows new characters that may interact with the characters from previous series by having those characters dropping in, locations used or even mentioning a character’s name or conversation.

I love stalkers... ;-)
