Jay Bell never gave much thought to Germany until he met a handsome foreign exchange student. At that moment, beer and pretzels became the most important thing in the world. After moving to Germany and getting married, Jay found himself desperate to communicate the feelings of alienation, adventure, and love that surrounded this decision, and has been putting pen to paper ever since. Something like Summer is one of Amazon's selections for Best Gay Books of 2011, a Lambda Literary Awards finalist, and soon to be a movie from the makers of Judas Kiss. Kamikaze Boys is a winner in the 25th annual Lambda Literary Awards for gay romance, and winner of two Goodreads M/M Romance Member's Choice awards. Jay’s husband, Andreas, designs all covers of Jay’s books.
Together since 2000: 15 years.

Andreas and I met at a bar—an environment neither one of us is particularly fond of. I was drawn in by his adorable speech impediment, which turned out to be a German accent. As soon as we realized there was chemistry, we made plans to meet again that weekend and went our separate ways. Our first real date was wonderful and took place on a surprisingly warm day for early March. I drove him out to a lake, we strolled around the woods talking, and we even stopped by a ranch to say “hi” to a horse. We spent the entire day together, and much of the evening. What I remember most was laughing a lot, and how intelligent and kind this person seemed to be. All these years later, and that first impression has proven correct. Andreas is an incredible man, and I love him with all of my heart. -Jay Bell
