Georgette Gouveia is the author of The Games Men Play blog and book series. Her m/m literary romance series includes the groundbreaking "Water Music" (Greenleaf Book Group) and "The Penalty for Holding" (Less Than Three Press). Her novels 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 identity, and journey through love and loss. 

By day, Gouveia serves as editor-in-chief of WAG, a luxury lifestyle publication that’s been named “Best Magazine” by the New York Press Association for the past two years. 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 a also lover and expert on Alexander the Great and the ancient Greek culture. She lives in New York. Contact her here.
