Reading & Book Signing
Come celebrate love stories with Old Growth Northwest's Gay Romance Northwest initiative as we present a special reading event with four Washington State writers—Daisy Harris, M.J. OShea, Rick R. Reed, and Sheri Lewis Wohl. Whether they explore the darker edges of love (with vampires), heat up the night (with firefighters), or set the stage for new romance (with pop singers), each author shines a spotlight on LGBT relationships and the universality of love.
Daisy Harris is a retired party girl and science fiction enthusiast who spends most of her time writing sexy romance and plotting the fall of Western civilization. She is the author of multiple gay romance novels including From the Ashes, After the Rain, and the Men of Holsum College series.
M.J. OShea has been writing romance since algebra class in sixth grade. When shes not writing, she loves listening to nearly all types of music, painting, and reading great authors. She has written multiple gay romance novels, including One Small Thing, Catch My Breath, and Coming Home.
Rick R. Reed is all about exploring the romantic entanglements of gay men in contemporary, realistic settings. While his stories often contain elements of suspense, mystery, and the paranormal, his focus ultimately returns to the power of love. He is the author of dozens of published novels, novellas, and short stories and is a three-time EPIC eBook Award winner for his novels Caregiver, Orientation, and The Blue Moon Café, and a 2013 Rainbow Award winner for his novel Raining Men.
Sheri Lewis Wohl grew up in northeast Washington State and though she always thought shed move away, never has. Despite traveling throughout the United States, Sheri always finds her way back home. And so she lives, plays, and writes amidst mountains, evergreens, and abundant wildlife. She is the author of multiple lesbian paranormal romance novels, including Crimson Vengeance, Burgundy Betrayal, and Scarlet Revenge.
