Paul Smith

Biography

An adopted Mancunian (I've been here since just after the Millennium), I live with my husband and three rescue cats. In my Clark Kent guise I don glasses and sell clothes for a living. When not doing this I write fiction that might best be described as urban fantasy with a healthy dash of yaoi (look it up).

My vices are good books, cute guys and cookies, not necessarily in that order.
