I’m Shane, a trans man (he/him) wordsmith and artist.
A lot of what I write is best described as LGBTQ+ dark romance, erotica, and urban fantasy that is oftentimes weird and unconventional, but always very emotional with a lot of feels in between. I’ve also been known to dabble with horror and Gothic fiction. I’ve been writing my whole life as well as drawing and doodling, and if I ever find myself not creating I feel incomplete.
I have a passion and love for philosophy, the science of dreaming and sleep, demonology, magick, metaphysics, ghosts, death, and the afterlife. I also grew up loving everything to do with horror. I used to read Shivers, Goosebumps, and Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark until I memorized them. Now, I’ve found a love for Mark Twain, Edgar Alan Poe, Marquis de Sade, V.C. Andrews, Anne Rice, H.P. Lovecraft, and Charles Baudelaire.
Music is a love of mine as well. It’s a huge part of my creative drive and I have a playlist for every story. I’m also heavily inspired by various animes, which shaped my drawing and writing styles as a teenager.
Writing has saved my life. Without it, I wouldn’t be here today, nor would I have grown to understand and find a love for my head family — my alters and spirit guides — who sometimes find their way into my work. It’s my hope that my passion and dedication, as well as my intense love for writing, will shine through in my books.
Follow your dreams no matter how many people try to discourage you. You have them for a reason — they’re important!
