R. J. Houston: A Journey of Creativity, Compassion, and Equality

Hi, I'm R.J. Houston, an Author of Diverse Dark Fantasy Cozy Mysteries featuring LGBTQ+ and Women over 45 Protagonists!

I grew up as a military brat, traveling the world and experiencing diverse cultures from a young age. This nomadic childhood ignited my passion for storytelling and allowed me to draw inspiration from the people and places I encountered.

I've always been a strong advocate for animal rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and promoting size and diversity positivity. Throughout my life, I've actively supported efforts to ensure that all people and animals are treated with kindness, fairness, and respect. I believe that everyone, regardless of their ethnicity or nationality, deserves equal treatment and opportunities.

My love for movies and storytelling led me to work as a movie critic for a now-defunct LGBTQ newspaper, where I could combine my passion for film and my dedication to promoting equality and representation.

The Jasper Bloodstone Mysteries series is a unique blend of cozy mystery and dark romance fantasy, with a relatable and empowering protagonist. Jasper, a voluptuous African American anthropologist in her 50s, represents the kind of strong, independent, and complex character I believe the literary world needs more of. The series is designed to appeal to readers over 45 but also offers engaging storylines and characters for younger readers.n me on this exciting journey as we dive into the thrilling world of Jasper Bloodstone and her supernatural adventures, filled with mystery, romance, and unforgettable characters.
