Welcome to my little corner of the internet!


I’m Charley and I write MM Romance under this name and LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings under the name Charli Coty, because those are the books I want to read. Also, I believe every reader should be able to find themselves inside the pages of a book. That means every sexual orientation, every gender identity, every socio-economic class and body type, every level of ability (mental and physical) and every race. As a nonbinary biromantic gray ace, writing inclusive books is very important to me. 🖤

Here, you’ll find news and updates about my books, recommendations for stories you can read on a budget (mostly free ones!), and ponderings about topics of interest to the LGBTQIA+ community. I also like to host authors and their books, chat about the online and meatspace book communities, and post snippets from my fiction on the weekends as part of the #RainbowSnippets Facebook group.

You can find me on Facebook Instagram, or Goodreads.

I’d love to hear from you!


Charley Descoteaux is the author of the Buchanan House Love Stories. Book One is a USA Today Must-Read Romance.

Charley misspent a large chunk of their youth on the back of a Harley, meeting people and having adventures that sometimes pop up in their fiction. She grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during a drought and found her true home in the soggy Pacific Northwest. Charley has survived earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods, but couldn’t make it through one day without stories.

You don’t need permission to reblog or republish an excerpt from any of my posts, as long as it’s under 300 words and includes a link back to the original post.

In addition to writing, I enjoy photography. Some of the photos on this blog were taken by me and may not  be used without permission (which I’ll probably give, so ask me!). Thanks for respecting my IP.

If you see any of your pictures on my site without proper credit, please email me. I’ll give you proper credit or remove them, whichever you’d prefer.
