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

Guest: How to Drink Like a Champion by Brianna Kienitz

  How to Drink Like a Champion A foxy fox and a T-rex walk into a gay bar. It’s not a joke, it’s Off Pitch. Well, it is hilarious, but I don’t want to give too much away and spoil the fun for you. Suffice to say that Adeline Fahey’s 21st birthday is a night she may or may not remember forever. I named a couple of the drinks she enjoyed along the way, and have since had numerous requests from beta readers to share the recipes for them. Without further ado, and here to wet your whistle, I give … 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
