With a degree in Fine Arts, and a long professional career in design, AC brings unflinching attention to detail to his writings and poetry. He strives for emotional realness in all circumstances, and excels at structure and dialogue. A love of history, philosophy, and the humanities informs his work, while having honed his craft from his adolescence has allowed him to delve into the workings of the human heart. He also has a wicked sense of humor.
Aditus' first story ever was about an earthworm hating the rain. Since then he has written short stories, novellas, novels, and poems. His characters are often standing in their own way, with at least one of them being of the chaotic-good variety. While not favoring any specific genre, aditus sure does love his vampires!
The writings of andr0gene mostly reside under the 'romance' category, pitting characters into awkward or impossible situations and let them make the best of it. Several of his efforts have popped up around the web over the years, with one of his stories being voted #1 on the historical toplist for five years straight (since 2005); another sits at #4 on that same list. He's best known for "The House Always Wins," a story set in Las Vegas, and "Colorado Game," set in beautiful Colorado. His releases are far and in-between, so catch em as they come! Andr0gene writes to us from the Netherlands.
A reader commented Carlos practices socially engaged storytelling. Not preachy, but raising awareness of issues facing the GLBT community and humanity in general. These are tales grounded in real life, featuring gay men dealing with everyday concerns about family, friends, and relationships. Characters are men who tackle challenges instead of backing away from them. The author’s love of motorcycles and travel and his contempt for social injustice often play a central role in his stories.
Wrote bad science-fiction in high school, sent some out but got it all back. In college I learned I had a talent for writing historical fiction, but didn't do anything with that until the internet put me in contact with others of like mind. This led to nearly two decades of writing interactive stories set in Ancient Rome, then I discovered gay fiction online and decided to try my hand at it.
My main story is based on my high school years, and I'm also back doing sci-fi!
I have been active in writing online since 2000 - so in internet years, I'm dead. I'd like to think my writing has gotten better over time, but I still have the occasional stinker. Feedback is always welcome. Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dabeagles.doghouse
David McLeod writes stories set both in a medieval fantasy world and in various Earth-analogues that touch that world from time to time. While admitting a debt to a youth wasted on fantasy and role-playing games, his goal is to bring fresh heroes, villains, and ordinary people into worlds different, but not so different, from our own.
