About Damien Benoit-Ledoux

About Damien

My mind is a magical and nerdy place where fantastic heroes defend amazing worlds from dangerous villains who run amuck in an epic struggle to take over the universe. Recently, the brightest and best from this colorful cast of characters have made their way into notes, plots, stories, and novels for you to read and enjoy.

I strongly believe the real world we live in should be a place where LGBT equality and respect are second nature and never questioned. When I'm not working or spending time with my husband, our son, and our dog, I weave this philosophy into the exciting lives of my characters and the fantastic battles and romances they endure so they'll stop taking over my dreams at night.

Current Projects


Love Grows in Honest Places

  • WORKS IN PROGRESS: Set in the high school world of Kinderhook, New York, this gay coming-of-age series is dear to my heart because it deals with the topic of coming out in a world that still rejects homosexuality. Although the characters share the same universe, each book in this series is stand-alone.
  • WHAT'S NEXT (Why I Need Your Support): Audio Book Production


The Guardians Series

  • PUBLISHED and COMPLETE: The five-book Guardians Series is the story of gay student Quinn McAlester and his best friend Blake Hargreaves, high school classmates who acquire super powers through a freak accident.
  • Although I marked the series as complete, I continue to write stand-alone books beyond the original series.
  • WHAT'S NEXT (Why I Need Your Support): Audio Book Production


The Snakeheart Series

  • WORKS IN PROGRESS: Snakeheart is a supernatural thriller book series about the unsuspecting Dante Coranguis who is the fulfillment of a prophecy about the End Times. This horror series features a thrilling twist on Humans, Vampires, Lycan, Fae, Spellcasters, and adds two new groups, the Human Sensitives and Soul Hunters to the supernatural realm that seeks to crush Dante and prevent him from becoming who and what Lucifer has been planning for millennia.

The Nitraxian Galaxy Saga

In 2014, I started world-building for a series I’ve titled The Nitraxian Galaxy Saga, a massive, groundbreaking LGBTQ science fiction space opera. I’ve spent a lot of time world building, outlining, and organizing the characters and plots into an amazing story. In reality, this significant undertaking is the LGBTQ lovechild of Star Trek/Wars and Game of Thrones, allowing for equal page time for the main characters regardless of their sexuality. I wrote book one in 2017 and then set it aside to work on a project that would not leave my imagination alone.

The Nitraxian Galaxy Saga also represents (to my knowledge) the first LGBTQ science fiction series with a world-view that promotes and understands LGBTQ acceptance and unparalleled equality. Imagine a place where someone's sexual orientation or race were as second nature as eye color. That's Galaxy—where no one cares if you're gay, straight, black, or white. (They might care, however, if you're from the Imperium or the Shin'tari Dominion.

Let's face it, everyone judges a book by it's cover. That's why I want amazing covers for the Galaxy series. With your help, each novel in the series will have themed and kick-butt cover.
