Barrie Abalard

I have been writing and selling erotic romance for over twelve years under the pseudonyms Barrie Abalard, Miss Lee, and Belle. As of early 2008, I've sold over eighty short stories, eight short novels/novellas, and one full-length novel, The Baker's Man. Loose-Id, Amber Quill Press, and Discipline and Desire carry my work.
When I lived in Boston, I was a jack-of-all-trades, mastering two: radio personality and technical writer/online help designer. I also did short stints as a taxi driver, clerical chartist for the Federal Reserve Bank, and temporary office worker for half a dozen companies. However, fiction writing is my first and longest-lived love. (If you can say that three times fast, you, too, might have a career in radio.)

I read widely, adoring a good story with quirky characters. Besides reading, I enjoy being around horses and cats, singing, creating new recipes, taking solitary road trips, and hanging with friends. I confess to being hopelessly addicted to the wonderfully-over-the-top television shows Boston Legal, House, Men in Trees, Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, and 24, among others. I write comic romance under my real name, and my first release, "Cover Me", is now available.
I'm married with a grown child. All three of us live in one of the Middle Atlantic states, along with two persnickety, high-maintenance cats. I believe that a woman should have a past that's juicy enough to enjoy retelling in her old age. Not that I'm going to tell it here, mind you, and not that I'm old.

A Note From Barrie Abalard

Loose-Id will publish my next novel, "Hot to Trot", on April 1. It's the story of two exes in the sometimes-weird world of Boston high tech who can't live with--or without--each other. The sparks fly!

Starting in July 2008, Amber Quill Press will publish several of my M/M erotic romances. I'm looking forward to bringing you hot but intensely romantic M/M stories this year. The first one will be "Swinging", set in Seventies Hollywood. Two hunks find they enjoy having sex with each other more than they do their ladies...
