About Tempeste O'Riley

Homoerotic romance with tenderness and passion. And YA/NA LGBTQ+ romance with snark and a touch of heat. 

(I just write what the voices in my head tell me to, shhhh....)


Tempeste O’Riley is an out and proud pansexual genderfluid whose best friend growing up had the courage to do what they couldn’t—defy the hate and come out. He has been their hero ever since. Tempe is a hopeless romantic who loves strong relationships and happily-ever-afters. They has done many things in their life, yet writing has always drawn them back—no matter what else life has thrown their way. They counts their friends, family, and Muse as their greatest blessings in life. They lives in Wisconsin with their children, reading, writing, and enjoying life. 

Tempe is also a proud PAN member of Romance Writers of America®, WisRWA, and Rainbow Romance Writers. 

Tempe’s preferred pronouns are they/them/their/theirs/themselves.
