Home and Family

I thought I’d give you all a preview of Home and Family.  It released last Tuesday.  I spent part of my teenage years in the country.  I worked with plenty of animals, hauled hay and shoveled enough poo to last a lifetime.  Still it was a happy time.  We didn’t have a lot, but there was space and a chance to explore part of the world.  I remember it fondly.   Excerpt: Mark has worked on Clay and Dell’s farm for a year, and he’s now in charge of the care and feeding of their growing herd of goats. He’s … Continued

Half A Cowboy – A Glimpse Behind the Story

Half a cowboy features a character who uses a cane largely for balance.  Its because of an injury he sustained years earlier.  He came to me because of two friends of mine who use canes to get around.  They are dear friends and amazing people.  And when they shared some of their stories with me about how difficult it can be to navigate the world with a cane, it made me angry.  Very angry.  A lot of the things we take for granted become harder if you need a cane.  For example you only have one hand free.  Or when … Continued

The Story Behind the Story – Paint By Number

Paint by Number releases September 8 and I thought I would share with you the story behind this book.   I was visiting with Karen Rose and somehow we got on the subject of Alaska and I started talking.  My mother’s sister taught elementary school is Anchorage for over 20 years and lived there for over 40.  In that tine I got to visit her and it was something special.  The first time I was twelve years old and spent a month with her.  It was a real eye opening trip for me.  My first real chance to be away from … Continued

Carlisle Deputies – All Good Things Must End

All good things must come to an end and as much as I hate to say it, Fire and Diamond is the last Carlisle Deputies story.  I have enjoyed all of the stories set in Carlisle.  Its home and I love writing about my home town and the people in it.  Each of these stories was inspired by events where I live or by things I’ve seen.  This particular story came to me after driving past a house in the country that that looked more like a junkyard.  Thankfully, it has since been cleaned up, but elements of this story … Continued

Rebound

Rebound releases on February 12 and I wanted to share a sneak peek excerpt and share just a little about this story. Rebound didn’t start the way a lot of my stories do. I had a vague of the overall story. But it really started with the character’s names. I am not going to give away anything but Obie and Bri began with just their names and then they quickly filled in. Both men’s bold personalities came forward almost immediately and a story that I loved to write was born. I know I say that about each story, but some … Continued

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

Very Early Memories

I loved fairy tales as a kid. One of me earliest television memories was watching Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on television.  It was in black and white and my mom and dad let us stay up late to see it.  Mainly because I bugged them.  🙂  I remember my brother falling asleep, but I stayed up all the way through.  I think sometimes that those very early memories have colored a lot of my writing.  They certainly drove my fascination with the Cinderalla archetype and I’m sure was the origin of Redeeming the Stepbrother.   A Tale from St. Giles … Continued

The Playmaker

  I’m not a sports nut.  But I love athletes so I like to think of this story as a sexy labor of love.  I hope you find it the same!!!!!     Professional football player Hunter Davis is learning that saying he’s gay is very different from actively being in a relationship with another man—especially in the eyes of his teammates and fans. So when Hunter needs a personal assistant to keep him organized, he asks for a woman in order to prevent tongues from wagging. Montgomery Willis badly needs to find work before he loses everything. There’s just … Continued

New Release in Audio

Heat Under Fire just released in audiobook.  This is the fourth story in the By Fire series.  Its firemen and police officers.  What can be better?  Happy listening.  This was the story that really inspired what became the Carlisle Cops series.   Justin Briggs can shout out directions all day on his job as a traffic cop, but put him in front of a hot guy, specifically firefighter Rock Sparks, and he clams up. Rock finds Justin confusing. While saving a busload of children hanging off the edge of a highway overpass, the cute rookie is cool and confident. But … Continued
