Christie Gordon PortraitAbout The Author

Christie Gordon started writing gay and MM romance books after finding Yaoi fanfiction by accident and falling in love with it. I’ve always had stories in my head and always enjoyed writing, so I decided to try my hand at the genre and took up fiction writing classes at a local community college.

I published my first MM romance book with eXtasy Books back in 2009. Always following my muses wherever they take me, writing a mixture of paranormal, historical, and contemporary romances. I enjoy writing about men discovering themselves, overcoming obstacles, and finding love in the process, along with a happy ending.

My day job is in the high-tech industry with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s in Business Administration. I currently live in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area but have also lived in the Bay Area of California and grew up in Minnesota. If I’m not writing, I’m watching boys love dramas or creating digital artwork. I’m also a mother of two young adult sons, whose antics keep me on my toes. My one-eyed rescue pug is always by my side, snoring the day away.
