The first LGBTQIA+ book I read wasn’t gay literature or MM romance.
That might come as a surprise to people. Most of my books thus far have had relationships between men (and occasionally between men and nonbinary folks). My publishing career started with a book that included a romance between two men.

How and why did you chose your genre?
My first novel had a male lead, but a strong supporting cast of women (four leads, three...
