Sparkle: The Queerest Book You'll Ever Love took me a year or so of constant writing and editing
to complete. It has always been my life-long dream to be a novelist and, voila, here I am. Dreams
do come true. My second novel, Lambda Literary Award nominee for Best Gay Fiction,
Divas Las
Vegas, was published by Cleis Press in November of 2009. It was the 2010 TLA Gaybies Award
winner for Best Gay Fiction. Book #3,
Hot Lava, was published by Torquere Press in February of
2011.
Southern Fried was published in September 2011 by MLR Press. Queerwolf, my first
speculative fiction novel, was published in May 2012 by MLR Press, followed by
Vamp in 2013.
Queens of the Apocalypse and Creature Comfort were released in 2015. Fate was released in 2015
by MLR Press.
Midlife Crisis was released in 2016. Fierce was released in 2017 by JMS Books.
And God Belched was published by MLR Press in 2018. Good & Hot, a collection of twenty of my
erotica stories, was published by Fierce Publishing in May of 2011. I am also the editor of the
anthologies:
Lust in Time: Erotic Romance Through the Ages, Men of the Manor: Erotic
Encounters Between Upstairs
Lords and Downstairs Lads, Best Gay Erotica 2015,  Best Gay
Erotica of the Year, Volume, 1
and Volume 2 and Volume 3.

So what would you like to know about me? Here's a little background information: I have a B.S. in
Biology from Emory University in Atlanta, where I worked for eight long years as a clinical
biochemist. When I turned thirty, I packed it all in, sold my car, broke my lease and moved to the
land of my dreams, San Francisco. And this is where I plan on staying.

Now for the personal stuff: I'm a native New Yorker, transplanted to the South, who landed out
West. I live with my incredible husband, Kenny, who I love more than anything in the world. On
average, I write one short story a week, having been published in over 200 anthologies, and having
contributed to more than
fifty literary sites, worldwide. I also contributed erotica to MEN and
Freshmen magazines for over five years.

If there is anything else you'd like to know about me, feel free to click the email link below. Or, you
can read my autobiography in the short story "A Jew In The South", which was featured in the
Lammy nominated anthology
Mentsh: On Being Jewish And Queer.  Oh, and please sign my
guestbook on the home page as well. I look forward to hearing from you.

Love to you all,

Rob
