In a previous incarnation, Fabian Black was known by the pseudonym 'Cat' her most notable work under that name being 'The Jack and Danny Chronicles.'

The Danny and Jack stories fall into a category of M/M domestic discipline literature, often known as ‘Bratfic.’ Such stories usually, though not exclusively, involve an older man (the Top or Dominant) partnering a younger man (the brat or submissive) It can be a rather stylised form of fiction with inherent rules and regulations about the forms discipline takes. The Jack and Danny Chronicles are both an affirmation of the Bratfic genre and an affectionate parody of it.

Fabian Black also writes 'The Stardust Stories' as Tarn Swan -
Tarn's partner Jonathan Lane, aka Stardust Twinkles, is a man of many talents, with an endless capacity for drama, and glamour.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I write for pleasure. It's a hobby, something I do to soothe my mind and calm my spirit when life gets on top of me, as sadly it often does. I like to explore my interest in romantic MM fiction combined with power exchange relationships, and to share that with other like-minded people. I used to do so through various online mediums, such as Yahoo groups, but when Yahoo ended groups I found myself without a platform, so I decided to try and be an indie author, just to be able to put my work out there for people to read. It's a way of sharing. I want people to have fun reading my stories, to enjoy them and find a connection. The small amounts I charge for my stories help me buy design services to produce nice covers. It also makes me feel vindicated as a writer. I really like to hear from people. It's good to know when someone has enjoyed a story.

Smashwords book reviews by Fabian Black

  • The Boy Who Laughed on March 03, 2011

    The Boy Who Laughed covers a wide span of time, lives and emotions. There's a lot of detail in the book. I think it probably could have been broken down into several books. It's a gay coming of age story, a romance, a history, an erotic story, and a discipline story all at the same time. Some of the discipline scenes might seem very harsh to people who perhaps aren't familiar with the concept of loving but strict (fictional) Dad/son relationships. Marc Murrey's debut novel will appeal to people who enjoy stories involving consensual male-to-male discipline.
