Timothy Black

Award-winning author Timothy Black was born in the Deep South where he hit the road at an early age and quickly learned it could hit back. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, he studied Geology, Astronomy, and the Occult, ending up with a degree in Philosophy that twists through his writing. After traveling the world to find his great loves he settled down in the Pacific Northwest, determined to craft stories that defy confinement to any single genre. A serial killer of coffee and whiskey sours, he stays one step ahead of retribution with a rebellious cackle and knowing wink.

Kon Blacke

By day I’m a humble physical therapist…and by day I’m also a writer of sweet & saucy boyslove stories (18+). I sleep at night as an old fart like me should. I’m both self-published and traditionally published. Other than that, I live with my partner and two cats and live my best life.
