I am a voracious reader and have been reading romance (primarily M/M) for quite a few years, though I enjoy many genres.
I'm a Southern girl, born and raised. I'm surrounded by sweet (mostly), but very conservative people. Little do they know, I'm anything but! I tend to be quite a contradiction and I love being able to express myself in new and creative ways.
Named Jessica Gabriel by my birth mother, my pen name and alter-ego seemed all too obvious. Adopted as a baby, I spent a good portion of my life curious about my birth family. I’ve been lucky enough to develop a friendship with my birth mother as an adult and am grateful to have such a supportive family.
At heart, I’m a bisexual, polyamorous submissive, but live life married to my husband (who is thankfully just as eccentric as I am) and a son who isn’t afraid to be himself.

Describe your desk
My desk is clean except for my phone, earbuds, and ever-present drink, but there are colorful pictures on the walls..
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Southeast US where pearl-clutching is the norm, so I started writing to express all those erotic thoughts that I couldn't talk about in public.
Prim and proper June Branch had done her best to be perfect for her Gran, but at some point, she had become a walking, talking Gran clone.

Kira Jensen and Vinnie DeLuca were close once, but a burgeoning mental illness drove a wedge between them. When the death of Vinnie’s mother reveals that he may have another sibling, they embark on a cross-country trip where friendship and passion bloom amid snark, tears, and laughter.
