Dysfunction at Its Finest!!

This is a friends-locked journal, mostly about my various fannish interests and lusts, namely:

Because this LJ contains occasional sexual content, I will not knowingly add anyone under the age of eighteen to my friends list.

I've been writing fan fiction for a number of years, mostly in the X-Files and Smallville fandoms, but in 2008 I launched my pro-writing career with an erotic romance series entitled the Courtland Chronicles. Book #1, The Arrangement, features a m/m/f menage a trois relationship. Books #2 and 3, Strictly Business and By Chance, both prequels, concentrate on the decade-long love affair between my two heroes, Eric and Nick. Book #4, Complications, tells the story of how Eric married his wife, Ally. The fifth and final book, Triad, picks up their story ten years later.

The Arrangement, Strictly Business, By Chance and Complications are now available from Lyrical Press. Triad will be published on December 21, 2009.
