Agent: Needs one
Great Yarmouth, United Kingdom

Email: erastes@erastes.com

I've been writing professionally since 2003 and have been very lucky to get my short stories published almost immediately.  My first novel, STANDISH (Gay Regency) was published in November 2006, and was nominated for a Lambda award.I am working on polishing a finished work "TRANSGRESSIONS" which is a gay romance set around the English Civil War and and am half way through a novel set in 1960's English surburbia where a married stockbroker falls in love for the first time, with the teenaged boy next door. After that I plan to return to my first love, the Regency era and possibly, due to the clamouring of readers of Standish, a sequel to that book.

I'm actively searching for an agent, as being based in the UK and marketing directly to a more American market, I could use some help!I've had many short stories published and am the current Director of the Erotic Authors Association.
