Ginn Hale (born April 23, 1968)

Ginn Hale spent her early childhood living in a small cabin above a California commune utterly unaware of the modern world only fifty miles away. Upon discovering technological miracles of electricity, running water, the flush toilet and tape she swore never to forsake them-though she admits that, like an occasionally lapsing alcoholic, she sporadically drifts from civilization to live like a wild thing.

She attended the University of Northern Colorado as well as Denver University and has tramped through all 31 states of Mexico on botanical expeditions. Later she plunged through the wilds of Heathrow Airport, discovering the locations of nearly every bookstore while hunting elusive and often overbooked flights to Paris. She now lives in Bellingham Washington where she writes fantasy and science fiction and donates blood just for the fun of it.

Wicked Gentlemen is Ginn´s first novel. It was a Lambda Literary Award finalist and won the 2008 Spectrum Award for best novel.

Hell Cop, coauthored with Astrid Amara and Nicole Kimberling, won a 2009 Rainbow Award as Best LGBT Futuristic.

Belimai Sykes is many things: a Prodigal, the descendant of ancient demons, a creature of dark temptations and rare powers. He is also a man with a brutal past and a dangerous addiction. And Belimai Sykes is the only man Captain William Harper can turn to when faced with a series of grisly murders. But Mr. Sykes does not work for free and the price of Belimai's company will cost Captain Harper far more than his reputation. From the ornate mansions of noblemen, where vivisection and sorcery are hidden beneath a veneer of gold, to the steaming slums of Hells Below, Captain Harper must fight for justice and for his life. His enemies are many and his only ally is a devil he knows too well. Such are the dangers of dealing with the wicked.

Next of Kin by Astrid Amara
Jay Yervant is a Hell Cop so powerful that his bare skin incinerates anyone he contacts. Isolated, he is tortured by desire, until he meets Brian, a sensual young man who touches him with impunity. But Jay's burgeoning hope is threatened when a malevolent sorcerer unleashes a host of demonic assassins against Brian. Keeping his lover may cost Jay his life.

Red Sands by Nicole Kimberling
Anthropologist Michael Gold's got problems. His apartment's been ransacked, his dad's missing, and he's been framed for murder. As a half-demon he expects trouble from the city's Hell Cops. Instead, he gets Argent, a man with intimate knowledge of Michael and whom Michael can't penetrate with his psychic powers. So does Argent want to clear him or expose him?

Touching Sparks by Ginn Hale
When photojournalist James Sparks discovers an underworld of sorcery, blood sports and demonic drug traffic, he turns to Detective Ben Moran, a hard-bodied Hell Cop whose touch sends James's pulse racing. But when James uncovers evidence of police corruption he realizes that Moran may be in as much danger as he is.
