About O. M. Grey
Nestled in the mountains of Northern California, Olivia M. Grey lives in the cobwebbed corners of her mind writing Gothic stories and controversial nonfiction. Olivia focuses both her poetry and prose on alternative relationship lifestyles and deliciously dark matters of the heart and soul. Her work has been published in various anthologies and magazines like Stories in the Ether, Steampunk Adventures, SNM Horror Magazine and How The West Was Wicked. Her premiere Steampunk BDSM erotica novel, Avalon Revisited, is an Amazon.com Gothic Romance bestseller, now available in audio book format. She also currently has two other titles available: The Zombies of Mesmer, a YA Steampunk Romance, Caught in the Cogs: An Eclectic Collection of short stories, love poetry, and relationship essays.
In addition to being a cover model for Gearhearts Steampunk Glamour Revue (left), Ms. Grey has seen quite the upswing in popularity over the past few years. Her poem “New York Rain” not only won an award for best poem, but it also made the Bar None Group’s Hall of Fame. Her short story “Dust on the Davenport,” written for Tales of the Archives, as well as her bestselling Steamy Steampunk novel Avalon Revisited, won the 2012 Steampunk Chronicle’s Reader’s Choice Award for best short story and best novel, respectively. Olivia was voted “Muse of the Fair” at the 2011 Steampunk World’s Fair and has enjoyed being a special literary guest at Steampunk Conventions, like Clockwork Con, Aetherfest, HRM Steampunk Symposium, Florida Steampunk Exhibition East, among many others. At fantasy and sex-positive conventions, Ms. Grey presents controversial topics, interacts with fans, and participates on panels discussing fiction, writing, steampunk, mental illness and emotional insecurities, rape culture and misogyny, sexual health and safety, and relationship styles and tools, just to name a few. She loves to host tea parties, and she runs a delightful game of charades, Victorian style.
