  • Addison Acres

    Addison Acres has a big smile and a gentle temperament which leads many to believe that she is sweet and innocent. Given that she loves to write raunchy M/M stories, many with a hefty dash of kink or taboo, this is patently untrue. Addision lives in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia, swears like a pirate, and is a profound supporter of the Oxford comma. She is a crazy chicken lady and will spend countless hours just hanging with her flock.

  • Chloe Archer

    Chloe Archer writes M/M sci-fi and paranormal rom coms with laugh out loud humor because she’s all about bringing the funny-sexy back. Oh, yeah! She currently calls Minnesota home, but has lived abroad in places like Montreal, Edinburgh, and Tokyo. She’s hoping to relocate to Scotland permanently one day if the stars align. Chloe is a fur mama to two adorable Yorkies, Jasper and Teddy, and she loves them in a crazy dog mama kind of way. When she isn’t busy writing, she enjoys visiting friends and family, traveling, reading, binge watching movies and TV shows, and practicing her karaoke skills. She does a mean cover of Pat Benatar and Cher, or so she’s been told.

  • Kit Barrie

    Kit Barrie (she/her) was raised by pirates in a traveling carnival where she learned how to fly and to weave fantasy into reality. She identifies as chaotic bisexual, with good intentions and questionable methods. She lives in an utterly unfantastical state in the Midwestern United States with her very supportive spouse (VSS) and at least 4 food goblins who might just be cats gobblin’ food.

  • MN Bennet

    MN Bennet is a high school teacher, writer, and reader. He lives in the Midwest, still adjusting to the cold after being born and raised in the South. He enjoys writing paranormal and fantasy stories with huge worlds (sometimes too big), loveable romances (with so much angst and banter), and Happily Ever Afters (once he’s dragged his characters through some emotional turmoil). When he’s not balancing classes, writing, or reading, he can be found binge watching anime or replaying Dragon Age II for the millionth time.

  • Sera Bishop

    I'm a long-time reader who loves all things dark and MM. I have a huge soft spot for big, over-protective alphas—arrogant, deadly, kinda thick when it comes to feelings…but they’d do anything for their true mate. And they can’t help being drawn to the omega type who’s never fit in. My readers are always guaranteed high heat, forever love, and intense, immersive worlds.

  • Bennu Bright

    Greetings, My Forges! It's been my passion to tell queer stories that entertain. Fantasy and paranormal tales have always felt like home, and larger than life characters are a part of that. Exploring the gritty details of relationships and romance are the foundations of my work. Be it epic fantasy, romance, or romantic fantasy. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I spend my days nose to the keyboard, drawing, or tending to my African violets.

    • Zile Elliven

They love attending horror movie conventions and indulging in cosplay of their favorite characters.

      • Odessa Hywell

        Odessa Hywell is a taboo MM romance author with a book addiction and coffee problem, who lives in the Southern United States with her husband, their teenage son, who mocks her for being short, and way too many animals. In 2021, she decided because she is married to a twin it was best NOT to publish her books featuring twincest and other questionable themes under her married name as her husband would not approve. —His loss, honestly.— If you know who Odessa Hywell is, don’t be a snitch. Like Benjamin Franklin said, “Three may keep a secret if two of them are dead.”

      • MA Innes

        A USA Today Best-Selling Author of MM Romances, M.A. Innes is the part of my imagination that leads to kinky and curious things like age play and puppy play. I write bdsm and kink because the people in my head have always been more interesting than average and they’re very curious creatures. My books are full of love, passion, and compelling characters. With over 100 published titles under my belt, I’ve realized that there will always be new people in my head and that I should’ve started out writing making more notes about timelines and what characters looked like. When I’m not writing I like to travel and read.

          • Shannon Mae

            Shannon Mae began her journey in the M/M romance world as an avid reader, then a beta reader, and eventually an editor who works with the unparalleled Tammy B. PA from Aspen Tree E.A.S. When a dear friend suggested she should write her own book, she decided to do just that. She gravitates to writing paranormal romance, since that genre is her first love, and her books tend to be low-angst and filled with happily-ever-afters. Shannon is an unfailing optimist with a side of snark and sarcasm. When she isn't editing, writing, or working her day job, which she loves, you'll find her on some outdoor adventure or embarking on a hands-on project (that is probably slightly more complex than she thought it was). She lives in a small, seaside town on the east coast, and she spends her free time with her eye-rolling, sassy teenage daughter and her adorably loving dog. Life is a place full of mysteries and wonders, and she hopes to capture that joy and fun in her writing, Adding some fun, sexy times makes it all complete. Happy reading!

          • Penny Moss

            Imperfect characters with a truckload of flaws are my absolute favourite. Their agency is theirs, they do what they want. I'm just over here documenting their stupidity. I reside in soggy UK, lament their terrible food daily, and am old enough to have used a rotary phone as a kid. I grew up with religious and strict parents, so naturally, I'm a bisexual wreck who has forever had a love for monsters, but only recently discovered a love for writing.

                    • R. Phoenix & Adara Wolf

                      ADARA Adara writes almost exclusive m/m, but she has a fondness for bisexual protagonists. She enjoys a lot of darker themes, so you'll see a lot of that in her works. When Adara isn't writing, she's reading, painting, playing video games, and rescuing cats. She also enjoys learning about languages and other cultures. If you're ever curious about the kink content of her works, there are content notes for each story on the website. You can also find out more about her works and read some freebies there. RAISSA R. Phoenix (code name: Raissa) has an unhealthy fascination with contrasts: light and dark, humor and pain, heroes and villains, order and chaos. She believes love can corrupt, power can redeem and that the best of intentions can cast shadows while the worst can create light. She agrees with those who say that the truth is best told through fiction — even though fiction has to make sense while reality can be utterly baffling. She loves chatting with readers, though she often awkwardly rambles. No matter how much she tries to keep her bad and often perverted sense of humor in check, it seems to escape at the most inconvenient moments. (Thanks, universe.)
