Brian Lancaster is an author of gay romantic fiction in multiple genres, including contemporary, paranormal, fantasy, crime, mystery, and anything else his muse provides. Born in the rural South of England in a town with its own clock tower and cricket pitch, he moved to Hong Kong in 1998, where he also has his husband and two cats to keep him grounded. On the upside, the people he has since met provide inspiration for a whole new cast of characters in his head. His novels include Uninvited Guest (2015), The Missing Ingredient (2018) and Companion Required (2020). In the last quarter of 2021, he will have two new novels published by Pride Publishing; Any Day and Salvaging Christmas. When not working or writing, he enjoys acting in community theatre productions, composing music, hosting pub quizzes, and any socialising that involves cheese and pineapple on sticks and Chardonnay.
