Publication: The Greek Boy

The Greek Boy was published in Bosie Magazine in 2018. It chronicles the last years of Lord Byron’s life, and his love for his pageboy. While many find Byron repellant, I find him fascinating.

The problems areContinue reading “It’s Just the Hours He’s Been Keepin’”

When the characters finally surrender to their affections, theContinue reading “In Want of a Husband?”
