SR Brown


Author SR Brown writes fiction inspired by a caffeine-fueled muse and childhood of reading in the dark after lights out. A proud LGBTQA author, Brown enjoys to include characters with all kinds of lives and from various backgrounds in any walk of life. Tales range from fun and sweet characters going on adventures in town to a stranger holding out their hand promising adventure, but both usually leads to something much darker.
Battered and bruised by the end, most come out alive. Unlike Brown, if placed in most written about situations. But they may stand a chance having fought the darkness of a narrow flight of stairs and faced the shadow people that often visit at night. They are wonderful at suggesting ideas, but never subtle in entering the door.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I love to read books with characters that like to have fun. There has to be a sign that the story is not all doom and gloom with angst on every page. But that doesn't mean I don't want them to get serious when they have to pick up their sword and fight (unless they are certain mercenary called Deadpool, but he is always cracking a joke and the reason I love the comics). Action and adventure with a smile makes a bigger impact on me than darkness with constant screaming.

But I also like more laid back and relaxed slice of life pieces where the biggest conflict is finding the right present for the character's best friend. While a hero saving the world is nice, it's also fun to deal with the more mundane and down to earth. They often get a laugh out of me when life gets stressful.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like the Kindle I got years ago because it has lasted so long and can spend hours lost in a story without worrying about my arms getting tired. I would like to read even in the dark like I can on my phone, which is a close second, but it's nice to have a long battery life.
