December Roses

A mysterious garden... an enigmatic man... but are either of them real?

"...[an] amazing, well written, easy flowing, suspenseful, supernatural, dark theme story... I’m declaring Fiona Glass my favorite dark theme writer!"
MAK on Amazon

"I was completely immersed in Nat's world... the garden wrapped itself around me and sucked me (very happily) into it."
Andy Paulcroft, author of 'Postcards From Another Life'

When injured British soldier Nat is sent to remote army rehab centre Frogmorton Towers, he discovers a once-beautiful garden and the enigmatic Richie, and starts to fall in love. But there's something odd about Frogmorton. He can rarely find the same place twice and Richie proves every bit as elusive as the Chinese pagoda or the Scottish glen. Nat begins to question his own sanity, because if the garden is imaginary, what does that make the man he loves? Faced with the shocking truth, Nat must decide whether to stay with the army - even though that means hiding his sexuality - or find acceptance elsewhere.

This bittersweet m/m romance is out now (in December!) on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited.

Vincentius Valerius - less fictional than I thought

I have just discovered that there really were African Roman soldiers in York, and this makes me very happy. Why? Well, one of the main characters in Echoes of Blood is exactly that – a citizen of North Africa who has joined the Roman Army and been sent, as part of the Ninth Legion, to Eboracum.

  • A Roman joke?

    Roman Britain would have been over-run with mice and they would probably have been seen as utter pests, getting into the granaries and chewing through the grain. So why make a model of one?

  • Ghost story with a difference

    I see the movie is based on a book, ‘Break My Heart 1000 Times’, by Daniel Waters. I’d not come across this before but based on this I’d be tempted to give it a go...

When she isn’t being a pane in the glass, Fiona writes darkly humorous paranormal romance, often featuring gay characters and almost always with a twist in the tail. Her short stories have been published in anthologies and magazines including Mslexia, Paragraph Planet, and The Library of Rejected Beauty. She currently has three books available: gay vampire romance Echoes of Blood and time-travel romance Just Visiting on Kindle, and paranormal romp Got Ghosts? from Fox Spirit Books. Her gay ghost novel December Roses is due out imminently.

Fiona lives in a slate cottage within stone-throwing distance (never a good idea in Glass houses…) of England’s largest lake with her husband, several pot plants and a vast collection of books. She enjoys history, gardening and photography, and rarely has her nose far from the pages of a book – or a cup of tea.
