I have been living in a rural area of the Mid-West for the last several years. Having lived in Las Vegas at one time it took a little getting use to. I am an avid reader, which both my mother and I find funny since in the ninth grade I was placed in a remedial reading class and I never really picked up a book until I was in the tenth grade. I started reading M/M stories about three years ago and I haven’t walked away since. I have several authors who I automatically buy, so its a good thing I read ebooks or I would have run out of storage space a long time ago. I also have a passion for history, especially World War Two. I am always on the look out for a new book to add to my collection, and I have to admit these I only read in hardback.

When I am not reading, our small farm keeps me busy. There always seems to be something to do, but I love it.

Gabbi:- co-owner

Hi, I’m Gabbi and one of my first memories as a child is my Grandmother reading a book to me. I’ve always loved reading and I’m never without a book or my e-reader with me almost at all times. I started reading historical and contemporary romances when I was around fifteen. Twenty one years later, I read my first homoerotic romance, and ever since I’ve been hooked on them. I love to meet other readers who love the M/M romance genre and discuss the books we love. When I’m not reading and doing some writing on my own, I can be found hanging out with my husband and our three loveable dogs.

Susan Laine:

Susan Laine, a Finn through and through, was raised by the best mother in the world. She told her daughter time and again that she could be whatever she wanted to be. However, it took Susan until her thirties to find the spark for serious writing by discovering the gay erotic romance genre which is what she mainly writes today.

Her formal education revolves around anthropology, but she wishes to be a full-time writer sooner rather than later. Susan enjoys hanging out with her sister and friends in movie theaters and bookstores. Her other pastimes include walking, swimming, and fantasizing about sizzling hot manlove. Some of her likes are pop music, chocolate, and doing the dishes, and a few dislikes are sweating hot summer days, tobacco smoke, and purposeful prejudice.

Alison likes to take life as if Murphy’s Law was as much a universal law as gravity and finds that it makes life more enjoyable that way. After all… if it goes wrong, it was going to anyway, but if it goes right (or left) then it’s already a great day!

Growing up in Adelaide, Australia for the most part, she discovered books at a young age and by her teens was reading around 5-10 novels a week by authors such as Jean M Auel, Robert Jordan, Anne McCaffrey, Piers Anthony, Elizabeth Moon, Douglas Adams, David & Leigh Eddings, and many, many others.

Living in Melbourne, Australia, with her sister and two cats, Alison has held a number of different jobs over the years including papergirl, door knocker (for charity), hospitality (kitchen), call centre operator (inbound), and first level website support. After finally coming to the conclusion that her health would not allow her to hold a “normal” scheduled job, Alison discovered a talent for editing. Since 2010, she has worked as an Editor, Editor in Chief, and Acquisitions Editor for Silver Publishing, and is now an editor for the same company and their sister site of Silver Stream Press (with the occasional freelance job). She also writes reviews for Top2Bottom reviews in an attempt to lower her monthly expenditure on books, and is a part of AQRM (Australasian Queer Romance Meets).

Her reading habits are even more varied, although at the moment she is focused on the M/M romance genre. If you put a book in front of her, no matter the genre, it is almost certain she will at least take a look at the blurb. Her favourite genres, if pressed for an answer, are science fiction, paranormal, dystopian, futuristic, and fantasy, especially in the sensual romance section (male/male or male/female).

Although her work is sporadic due to her health, Alison hopes to stay in the M/M romance literature community for quite some time to come.

I’m from everywhere and I love to read. I recently found the fantastic world of gay romance and can’t get enough of the fantastic chemistry between two or more men. I’m one who needs plot, believable characters, and a make-believe world which puts me in the center of the story is what I look for the most. You can locate me on Facebook Roxy Highland.

Liz Crowe

Liz Crowe is an avid reader with a weakness for gay romances. She loves just about any genre, though she has a fondness for paranormal and fantasy. She lives on the east coast with two of her three kids.

Anne Barwell

Anne lives in Wellington, New Zealand.  She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning.

In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra.

She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth.

  1. Just wanted to say thanks to Reggie, for reviewing my ebook, The Housekeeper.

    This is the first professional review I’ve gotten, and your comments meant a lot to me. Five kisses? I’m flying! Thanks so much for your kind and insightful words. Jamie will always be one of my favorite characters, and I’m keeping this review on my computer with the story. 🙂
