My friends, we will Live & Love, Defiantly

I, for one, have been thrown for a loop — actually, I take that back; that’s not enough. I feel like a great many of us have been thrown under a speeding train. I am so tempted, so very very tempted, to stoop to the level of this election, of the people who have elected […]

Right Here Waiting is back on TWO of Amazon Best Sellers lists!

Currently ranking as#180,945 on the Literature & Fiction>Genre Fiction list, and #20, 376 in the Gay & Lesbian fiction best seller list!!! Now, that might seem ludicrous to be happy that one’s book is #20,376 on any list, but when one considers how many possible entries on that list (over 2 million!), 20,376 seems quite […]

Another FIVE STAR review for Right Here Waiting!!

The Bookish Raven has written a wonderful review of my book, Right Here Waiting.  “Right Here Waiting is a heart-warming story about two men loving each other fiercely even when they’re thousands of miles apart while one of them fights in WWII. It’s such a beautiful story – even if it did rip my heart out a […]

Q. People say write what you know. Do you think that is right or even important?

A. I think it’s both right and important. I think it’s impossible to write competently about something that you know absolutely nothing about. There’s always an element of your reality, or a fragment of yourself in anything you write. It doesn’t mean that every single character is an exact copy of yourself, or that you […]

What is your favorite Golden Age of Hollywood movie, and why?

It’s propaganda, to be honest. The entire premise behind the movie is to show the folks left at home that their soldiers are being cared for when they cannot, to show them stories of lasting love and faithfulness. It gives the soldiers an idea of what they might see at these canteens to give them […]

Ridiculous exuberance over a good review

Just need to note this: I have listened to Harry Belafonte’s “Jump In The Line” seven times in a row, and danced ridiculously to it, in celebration of a review my book just got that contains this line: “One of the best period romances I’ve read to date.” – Carly’s Book Reviews I’m not sure […]
