ATLANTA —

A Georgia author of a fantasy trilogy has pleaded guilty in a scheme to bilk women he met through a dating site out of millions of dollars.

Federal prosecutors in Atlanta say Mitchell Gross pleaded guilty Tuesday to wire fraud and money laundering.

The 61-year-old was charged last year with scamming a Florida real estate agent he met through an online Jewish dating site into investing about $3 million in a sham company that he secretly controlled. They say he used some of the money to repay another woman whom he had bilked out of at least $1.4 million.

Gross writes under the pen names Mitchell Graham and Douglas Alan. His work includes a suspense story called "Circle of Lies."

Gross is to be sentenced May 14.
