About Beverley

Hello Readers! I’m English and live in a 200+ year old House in a tiny ancient village in England. I studied English and English Literature at University, gaining several degrees including 5 years Doctoral Research with a thesis on Vampire Literature!
I am the eternal student and love to write. I used to live in Brighton the ‘Gayest’ place in the UK, and loved my life there. I can’t remember my first M/M romance, but I read a lot of LGBTQ themed works at University and after. I love well written romance novels especially queer romance. I’m a long time vegetarian, love animals and identify as gender queer. I prefer to be called BJ. I hate injustice with a passion, which is why I fight abuses against animals, the elderly and children. I also align myself and fight injustices to the LGBTQ community waving my tiny sword

2015 – my first fiction book was published with Wilde City Press. A m/m romance entitled Soulmate for SIN published under my pen name Izzy van Swelm.

  1. Prepping for my blog. Perfect snowbound day to write. I went to Brighton with my father in 1970, when I was 15. I was desperate to see the Pavilion – because I was such a gay teenager. Dragged my dad on a two week driving tour of stately homes. Got sick, stayed at the Grand Hotel all day reading Agatha Christie novels in the bar and drinking ginger ale. My father was so patient (mostly). Explains a lot.

    • It sounds like a perfect day to me! The pavilion is a magical place, a hedonistic paradise. Did you ever notice that the tops of all the bus shelters are mini pavilions?
