SJ Himes is the semi-accomplished author of the series, “How Not to Succeed.” Her accolades range from “My eyes, my eyes!!”, to “Why did you do that?”, and the often cited, “Dear GAWD STAHP.”
She’s recently retired from her decade long career of teaching government employees how to milk hamsters instead of doing their actual jobs, and has frequently been seen at the scene of many a Red Tape Disaster. Not helping in any way, of course. That’s not what one does for Uncle Sam.
SJ delights in taking short walks to the fridge, where she opens it, stares forlornly and without purpose, and then shuts the door with a sigh. She is often the type to wander into a room, forget why she was going in there to begin with, and then leave, only to remember once she’s gone. Her other pastimes include snarky comments and bewildering non sequitors, and her puns inspire animals into early migrations. Having more books than friends, she likes it that way, as friends require paying attention and that dreaded skill called listening.
Her latest release, “My Betta Friend: The Life of Falcor”, is a semi-autobiographical novel set in Medieval Times—the event restaurant, not the era—and focuses on the woes of owning a fish instead of a cat. Downside: no snuggling. Good side: no litter box.
Here's the fun part: What's true and what's not? *wink*
I'm actually a self-employed writer who stresses out about the silliest things, like whether or not I got my dog the best kind of snack and the fact my kindle battery tends to die when I'm at the best part in a book. I love writing paranormal and fantasy, and my occasional forays into contemporary romances are alternating between stressful and enlightening. I write mainly gay romance and erotica, and my most recent release, The Necromancer's Dance, was my very first urban fantasy.
If you're feeling brave, I also write under my pen name of Revella Hawthorne, and write fanfiction on Fanfiction.net as Revella, for a certain British consulting detective and his army doctor. My mpreg series Bred For Love is out now.
See my Author Page for Revella Hawthorne for upcoming releases in the Bred For Love Series.
The Necromancer's Dance and The Necromancer's Dilemma (2 books as one submission) took 3rd place in the 2016 Rainbow Awards for Best Gay Fantasy!
