Hi, I’m Lily Velden, a quirky artist with a passion for the written word.

I write M/M fiction, and, thankfully for me,

Dreamspinner Press decided they liked my words enough to publish them!

I admit to being unashamedly idealistic and ridiculously romantic.

On my blog, you will find excerpts from both my published stories and those that are Works in Progress.

(Free Reads can be found under the following menus: Free Reads, If You Love Something, and Wednesday Briefs)

Links to where you can purchase my books or read reviews are also provided.

I probably won’t be able to resist uploading a pic or two, so be warned!

And why not check out some of my artworks while you’re visiting?

I welcome feedback, and am more than happy to answer questions.


Things that make me frown


Double Standards

Intentional Cruelty


And so-called friends that don’t tell you that you have spinach between your teeth!

Things that make me smile

My children – everyday

Laughter that comes from the belly

A stranger smiling at me

The smell of freshly mowed grass and baked goods

Beautifully crafted sentences

Good art

Red wine (but not if I’ve had a little bit too much of it…)

The sweet smell of the air after it rains

Watching a storm

A warm sun on my back and a cool breeze on my face

Seeing an email from a friend in my Inbox

So feel free to drop me a line at:
