The idea for Siren came from a much longer fantasy story that involved a whole world of fairies called The Dark, a boarding school, and a fight between good and evil (I have never finished it).
I wanted to write a sweet, light, One Shot that was definitely adult, about how two of the secondary characters—who I adored—got together, and so Siren was born.
Grey is in love with Si but he’s older and he’s certain Si is not interested. Oh how wrong he is! 🙂
I’m not sure how to categorize it. It is fantasy (Siren is a fairy and Grey has certain powers, that I don’t go into detail about ) but it’s also set in contemporary England.
I wrote this story a month before I started writing This is Not a Love Story at the end of 2011 (This is Not a Love Story took 18 months in total to complete—mostly because I took a break in the middle) and Siren was only the second M/M romance I’d ever completed. But once I’d completed two stories it was as though I’d found my groove and I’ve been writing mostly everyday since!
Siren is a free short story I am releasing 1st September on Smashwords, Amazon and Goodreads (and ARe if I can work out how).
Also, my husband designed the cover. I think it’s pretty awesome 😄
