Harper Fox & Jane

Bestselling British author Harper Fox (born March 13, 1965) has established herself as a firm favourite with readers of M/M romance. Over the past three years, she's delivered thirteen critically acclaimed novels, novellas and short stories, including the CAPA-nominated Salisbury Key, and 2011 Band of Thebes Best LGBT Book Life After Joe. Harper takes her inspiration from a wide range of British settings - wild countryside, edgy urban and most things in between - and loves to use these backdrops for stories about sexy gay men sharing passion, adventure and happy endings. She has recently launched her own publishing imprint, FoxTales.

Harper lives in beautiful rural Cornwall with Jane (born October 10, 1963), her partner of 27 years, and three high-maintenance cats. She'd love to tell you what she does when she's not writing, but the sad truth is she simply can't remember.

They married on September 2012.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher
