Crystal Lacy lives with her loving family in Hawaii, where it is always either drizzling or sunny and never snows—which is a shame, because she prefers being cold to being damp and hot unless it’s for Very Good Reasons. She writes queer romance, mainly M/M, but also some F/F. She has aspirations to one day write a YA novel about cats.

Crystal is a long-time fangirl and writes slash fanfiction for the Harry Potter and NBC Hannibal fandoms under the name crystalusagi. She has a deep love for fandom culture, and can be frequently spotted on Twitter and Tumblr reblogging pretty fan art.

I love Crystal Lacy's style! Her writing is never rushed, and her characters and setting are so well developed that you can really sink into another world.

Neve Wilder

This is a great, spicy short written in Crystal's sparkling prose that sucked me right in. A little humor, a heap of steam. I was loving Lee's dilemma and how he decided to resolve it from the get go. The chemistry between Lee and Hugo is super hot. So well written, which doesn't come as a surprise—Crystal's a fantastic writer, and this story hit all the right notes for me.
