I’m an author of male/male romance, published for many years in both print and ebook, including novels and shorter stories. I enjoy both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic and sexy characters, and I believe that’s always going to be my way.

I publish through publishers and also self-publish as Jocular Press.

Check out my new pen name Stella Shaw and my series of Rent Boy romances: Love at the Haven, launched in 2021.

When Rick Thatcher’s beloved aunt leaves him the run-down Haven Hotel, he’s amazed to find a group of young men running an escorting business out of it. Intrigued and impressed, he allows them to stay. The guys are sexy, fun, loyal friends, and not often expecting a happy-ever-after – but who knows what will happen at the Haven!

Will a spoiled prince abandon everything he holds dear, for a forbidden love?

A powerful but pampered lord, Chariz has only a passing interest in the new slave thrown at his feet, although he’s both beautiful and helpless. But the rumours of Oriel’s powers flow quickly and shockingly around the court. Is he an empath, a Magician—or a clever trickster? Chariz selfishly enjoys Oriel’s company, but cynically dismisses the rumours as nonsense—until Oriel shows how deeply he both understands and empathises with Chariz’s personal, and closely-hidden pain.

Chariz has only ever lived life on his own terms, indulging his own desires. But the time approaches when he must decide whether he’ll stand up for his principles, and pay the price of Oriel’s love. Especially when that price may demand a shocking sacrifice… from them both.


Love was never the problem – but forgiveness may be.

The day Glen Carson loses his wallet is the day that changes his life.
The wallet is returned by Aston Walsh, a man he hasn’t seen for over twenty years. He and Aston had a passionate and intense romance when they were younger, and Glen thought their love would last forever. But his dreams were horribly shattered by a shocking confession from Aston, and they parted for good—or so Glen assumed.
Now, two decades later, they’ve lived many years apart, created new histories, and built successful lives. Yet the spark between them is still there, and Aston wants a second chance. But Glen is more cautious this time around.
Love isn’t the problem – it’s whether the risk of surrendering his heart to Aston again is worth the prize.
