Julie Lynn Hayes

My name is Julie, and I am an author. I've been writing for over forty years and can't think of anything I'd rather do. Creating worlds inside my head and putting them into words is my passion. I live in the Midwest with my daughter Sarah and my 17-year-old cat, Ramesses. My daughters introduced me to the world of fanfiction and yaoi, and m/m romance. I took to it like a duck to water, and began to write my own, starting with the Harry Potter fandom. Eventually I progressed to original characters and stories. When I'm not writing or working, I watch TV shows and movies, and enjoy a few crafts: crocheting, cross stitch, knitting and crocheting. I try to keep up with all my children, who have scattered to the winds, other than Sarah. I write in different genres within the m/m category: paranormal, contemporary, humor, mystery, science fiction, supernatural, historical, bdsm, and anything else I can think of. I like to try new things and push the envelope as much as I can. If I leave someone with something or something they remember after they finish my book, or something to think about they've never looked at like that before, then I consider that I've done a good job.
