You Can Teach and Old Dog New Tricks

I can’t try to tell you the number of times that I have gotten requests for stories with older, more mature characters.  Many romances contain stories of young guys trying to find their way in the world.  That is a very valid subject because  learning who you are and accepting that you’re different is part of being gay.  But sometimes its nice to break form that and take a journey with someone that life has put through its wash machine and is just trying to figure a way forward.   In this case we have a successful man who desperately … Continued

I thought I would give you all a little sneak peek into my work in progress.  I’m currently working on Fire and Agate, the third story in the Carlisle Deputies series.  The second, Fire and Granite will release in July. This is the very opening of the book.  I’d love to know what you think.     Chapter 1 “Chris,” Briggs said as he stalked into the locker room like a man on a mission. His gaze was hard and his posture as rigid as a two by four. Anger and discontent rolled off him in waves the way they … Continued

Insiration for Growing His Dream

In Growing His Dream, Lachlan finds himself on his own at seventeen after his mother passes away.  At first the minister takes him in, but there’s a problem and soon Lachlan finds himself in front of the congregation while the minister explains his predicament and the fact that he needs a home.  No one comes forward.  I know this sounds incredibly Dickensian, but it was inspired by real events.  I have friends.  Their children are grown now, but that happened to him, only he was sitting in the congregation as a pair of twelve year old twins stood up front … Continued

A New Kind of Character – Fire and Snow

In the past I have written stories about many different kinds of characters and some are much harder than others.  Fisher was just that kind of character.  When I conceived Fisher, he had issues, lots of issues, fear, panic attacks, and many others.  At first I didn’t quite understand him and then I realized he was telling me that me he’d suffered a traumatic brain injury in an automobile accident and the pieces fit together.  Fisher had developed a mental illness as a result of the accident.  I fell in love with him immediately after that. Living with mental illness … Continued

Fire and Snow – A Little Background

In Carlisle there are always people who hang around the square in the center of town.  Some of them in groups and others alone, always sitting in the same space.  I think of them as the lost ones.  They don’t seem to have anything else to do and some of them seem to lonely and blank, like the world has passed them by and no one ever sees them.  So with Fire and Snow, I let me imagination work and decided to write one of their stories.     Blurb Fisher Moreland has been cast out of his family because … Continued
