Georgette Gouveia writes "The Games Men Play" blog and novel series, which includes the 2018 Lambda Literary Awards finalist “The Penalty for Holding” (Less Than Three Press) and “Water Music” (Greenleaf Book Group). This groundbreaking male/male literary romance series may evoke for readers the homoeroticism of Annie Proulx’s “Brokeback Mountain” as well as the work of Mary Renault and Patricia Highsmith. What sets Gouveia apart are her characters – professional gay athletes – who test their rivalries and relationships, navigate their public and private identities, and journey through love and loss. 
 

A 2018 Folio Women in Media Award winner, Gouveia is the editor in chief of WAG, a luxury lifestyles publication named a top magazine by the New York Press Association three years in a row. Prior to joining WAG, she was an Associated Press Award-winning senior cultural writer with Gannett Inc. She holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied with short story writer Grace Paley.

Gouveia is also a student of ancient Greek culture. She lives in New York. Contact her here.
