Author has written 8 stories for Horror, Humor, Supernatural, Sci-Fi, and Romance.
Call it a comeback, I guess.
A little bit about me: I started writing slash back in the mid-aughts as a graduate student. Put some stories out (even published one with a now-defunct press under the pen name Lydia Thorne--got the Goodreads entry to back it up and everything), and attracted a very modest following.
Life as a fully-fledged grownup took its toll and creative writing fell by the wayside. 10 years later and a confluence of events including Covid lockdowns and the dusting off of old hard drives has me rediscovering my love for writing stories.
Why slash? Romance and relationships are fun to write. You can stick 'em in all sorts of genres, but at the end of the day, the major charge comes from bringing your characters together. Slash lets me play around with dicey power dynamics and other potentially problematic stuff without running up against any icky misogyny. Also, I like men. ;)
My all-time favorite FP stories tend to put a spec fic spin on slash, but I'll read (and enjoy) contemporary romance in a pinch.
What's cooking now? I'm currently updating two stories:
1. Chill Pill came back from the dead depths of 2011. It's a bisexual love triangle romantic dramedy featuring a detoxing but driven addict and the men who love her (but are just maybe starting to love each other more). I anticipate completing this one sometime this summer.
2. HPHT (look up the abbreviation if you want a somewhat spoiler-y hint about where the story's headed) is a brand new space noir that's just getting rolling. Crime, corruption, mind games, power plays, a dash of transhumanism, and lots of kinky sex (D/S overtones).
What about the other old stories? Hey, since I came back after more than 10 years, I'll never say never, but don't hold your breath on Animus or Unplanned. All other stories are completed one-shots.
If you're looking for a self-contained read and appreciate your slash with a major helping of bleak, check out Autophobia.
