JL Merrow

Hi, I'm JL (Jamie) Merrow. I'm that rare beast; an English person who refuses to drink tea. I started writing in 2007 and nobody has yet been able to stop me. Most of what I write is m/m romance, but I occasionally dabble in f/f, threesomes or even m/f. I've had short stories and novellas published by Dreamspinner Press, Torquere Press, Reflection's Edge, Ravenous Romance and MLR Press with more coming all the time. For information about all my publications, plus excerpts and free stories, please visit my website:
