LABYRINTHIAN: here is a FAQ
I HAVE A BOOK COMING OUT ON THE 20TH I haven't been talking about it as much as I would prefer for reasons of workload, but I figure it might be good to post some info on it given that it's like ten days away. It's a book I'm really proud of. There are some... Continue Reading →

And I know I'm not the only one who does the fitting-of-movie-scores to my stuff. So here, as part of my process, is... Continue Reading →
On writing (cisgender male) gay romance and Strong Female Characters
I just got the novel edits for Labyrinthian (my tropey gay retelling of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur IN SPAAAAACE), which is a tad overwhelming - there is much work to be done, though most of it is cosmetic - but also exciting, because I love this book and I'm looking forward to...
