Edmond Manning has always been fascinated by fiction: how ordinary words could be sculpted into heartfelt emotions, how heartfelt emotions could leave an imprint inside you stronger than the real world. He is the author of King Perry, King Mai (Lambda Awards Finalist 2013), The Butterfly King, King John, Filthy Acquisitions, and contributor to the bear anthology, A Taste of Honey. In addition to fiction, Edmond enjoys writing nonfiction. His essays, I Probably Shouldn’t Have Done That, were a finalist in the Indie Book Publishing Awards, GLBT category.
