I write about my passions, which include baseball, erotica, gourmet food, martial arts, tea, and travel. I write fantasy, science fiction, erotic fiction, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, BDSM romance, and anything else that stimulates my imagination. I've been writing fiction professionally for over 25 years and lately I've started racking up awards--kind of neat! I was awarded Career Achievement in Erotica and the Pioneer Award in Erotic Fiction in 2015 by Romantic Times. My BDSM romance SLOW SURRENDER from Hachette/Grand Central Publishing/Forever won the RT Reviewers Choice Award in erotic romance, and the Maggie Award for Excellence from the Georgia chapter of the Romance Writers of America. A bunch more are listed at my website. I'm the author of numerous other novels, many published as erotic romance with fantasy and science fiction settings, others published as sf/fantasy with erotic elements, some as erotica... which means I never know what to answer when people ask what genre they are. Fortunately here on Amazon they can be ALL of the above!My work spans sexualities the same way it spans genres. I write heterosexual, gay, bisexual, and trans characters, and the eroticism runs the gamut from vanilla to bondage to transcendental magical sex. I'm the author of the Magic University series, a four-book contemporary fantasy about a hidden magical school inside Harvard. The Prince's Boy is my erotic gay high fantasy BDSM swashbuckling romance (not kidding). Daron's Guitar Chronicles is my award-winning gay "coming out and coming of age in the 1980s" series. Struck by Lightning is my BDSM contemporary trilogy from Hachette. SECRETS OF A ROCK STAR is another three-book series of kinky rock star romances from Hachette. There is more in the works, too, of course! I'll be starting an urban fantasy/paranormal series next year with Tor Books called THE VANISHED CHRONICLES. In the erotic short story realm, I've been published everywhere from Ms. magazine to Penthouse to Nerve, and I'm in many, many anthologies and the Best American Erotica series. Susie Bright called me "simply one of the most important writers, editors, and innovators in contemporary American erotic literature." I've also edited many anthologies including Women of the Bite, Cowboy Lover, Sex In The System, Wicked Pleasures, SM Visions, for many different publishers, and many many books and ebooks for the independent publishing house I founded, Circlet Press. Those include Best Fantastic Erotica, Erotic Fantastic, Like an Animal, Like Crimson Droplets, and many others, both for Kindle and in paperback.In science fiction/fantasy I have been published in Asimov's magazine, Strange Horizons, Absolute Magnitude, and many other places.I also write and edit baseball nonfiction under the name "Cecilia M. Tan."You can find out way more about me and my obsessions at www.ceciliatan.com
