Ed Gaffney

PFLAG dad, independent filmmaker, co-author of CREATING CLARK, an m/m romantic comedy novella, available now

Before he began his career as a writer, Ed Gaffney spent the better part of two decades working as a (secretly hilarious) lawyer, most often as a court-appointed, criminal appeals attorney. Thanks to the help and support of his wife, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann, Ed began writing critically acclaimed legal thrillers (his latest, Enemy Combatant, was nominated for an EDGAR Award). He then turned exclusively to collaboration with family members, and has since co-produced and co-written with Suz (and occasionally with their son, Jason T. Gaffney) the stage play Looking for Billy Haines, which ran off-Broadway for 10 weeks in 2010, the award-winning LGBT romantic comedy The Perfect Wedding, and the lesbian thriller, Russian Doll, which Ed also directed. Most recently, Ed has been working with Jace on his California Comedy series of LGBTQ romantic comedy novellas, starting with CREATING CLARK, available now in ebook and print-on-demand. He especially loves the comedy in romantic comedies, and the equality in writing books where love is love, and love always wins.A long-time LGBTQ-rights activist and ally, Ed served on the board of MassEquality, the organization that helped win marriage rights in his home state of Massachusetts.
