Thank you, Dani and LoveBytes, for hosting me to do a monthly blog post for your wonderful site. I look forward to hanging out here with all of you on the 21st of each month.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a Dreamspinner author of three novels and a bunch of novellas. You can look me up at the link below to see my works. I write contemporary stories almost exclusively (with one small foray into urban fantasy). My three Serpentine novels feature college-aged guys learning about life and love at the University of Virginia, my alma mater. Here are the beautiful covers done by the wonderful L.C. Chase:
On the personal side, I’m married and have a 21-year-old son who is in the Jazz Studies program at the University of Oregon. I’m a licensed clinical social worker currently working in a Hospice. I love finding out about people and discovering what makes them tick, and that’s one reason I love to write stories.
I’ve been getting back into gear on my writing after being stopped from the recent election in the U.S. You don’t need me to name names, I’m sure. But as I watch each day the repercussions in my country, I’m grateful for fiction as a way to both escape and express my emotions. I’m curious to see how my next book will be shaped by political events, because I’m pretty sure it will have to be. Still, the consolation is in the happy endings. I’m glad I write romance!
How about you? Enough about me, though. I’d love to get to know you all a bit better. Tell me what you love about m/m romance (and anything else you’d like to add about yourselves). And I’ll see you back here next month!
After years of hearing characters chatting away in her head, CJane Elliott finally decided to put them on paper and hasn’t looked back since. A psychotherapist by training, CJane enjoys writing sexy, passionate stories that also explore the human psyche. CJane has traveled all over North America for work and her characters are travelers, too, traveling down into their own depths to find what they need to get to the happy ending.
CJane is an ardent supporter of LGBTQ equality and is particularly fond of coming out stories.
In her spare time, CJane can be found dancing, listening to music, or watching old movies. Her husband and son support her writing habit by staying out of the way when they see her hunched over, staring intensely at her laptop.
CJane is the author of the award-winning Serpentine Series, New Adult contemporary novels set at the University of Virginia. Serpentine Walls was a 2014 Rainbow Awards finalist, Aidan’s Journey was a 2015 EPIC Awards finalist, and Sex, Love, and Videogames won first place in the New Adult category in the 2016 Swirl Awards and is a current 2016 EPIC Awards finalist.
