It’s all because of Heidi and that darn picture she posted that I’ve taken to calling them Wranglers. At any rate, we’ve brought on two people to help us, especially with the guest posts. So, without further ado, please welcome our newest CoP team members, Wrangler Evaine and ShawnyJ.
A twice-married, twice-divorced mother of a 26-year old son, Evaine loves to read. Anything and everything. Discovering that there was a flourishing market of m/m romances after years of reading (and some writing) of fanfic online in various fandoms was a big, happy surprise. Retired after 30+ years at the phone company, she now has more time to devote to discovering new, addictive authors in a fresh, growing genre. To paraphrase the late Anne McCaffrey, “My eyes are blue, my hair is grey and the rest is subject to change without notice.” She also has an obsessive love for flamingos and a great cup of coffee.
Shawn is a consultant in Toronto who lives with her loving fiancé and one very spoiled cat. Growing up as a little girl with a boy’s name, Shawn quickly learned how to stand up for herself. She read everything she could get her hands on, from stories of teenage detectives and babysitters, down to birding guides and bilingual cereal boxes. She came to romance reading in the usual way: via vampires, dukes, and kind-hearted but emotionally tormented Navy Seals. She’s new-ish to m/m romance, but likes what she’s read so far, and is a firm believer that if a picture of one gorgeous barely-clad man is good, then a picture of two gorgeous barely-clad men is probably going to be better. Shawn is very excited to be joining the Cup-O-Porn team.
