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!!!

A month after its release, Right Here Waiting, is back up to #16 on Amazon’s 20th Century Hot New Releases list. Now, I realize that all the Amazon lists change every hour, and are compiled by a complex string of algorithms  and things that are top secret and likely based on book sales, the angle of […]

Book tour, day 9: On writing realistic fantasy vs fantastic realism

…there’s nothing to say that it -couldn’t- have happened as it does in the book. Men in love with each other is not a modern concept. Surely somewhere, somehow, two men figured out how they could be in love and live their lives together, if in a bit of secrecy. Surely some of the so-called […]

An excerpt from Right Here Waiting — released today!!!

Prologue Benjamin Williams always hated being alone on Christmas Eve. He’d kept busy all day, delivering presents to his nearby friends, though with the snowstorm coming, he’d made sure to be home early. The bumpers on their Packard had long since been sacrificed to the scrap metal drive; the tires were worn nearly bald and […]

They scrambled up to the cockpit, two chairs side-by-side with a small space between them. Pete motioned for Ben to sit in the left side, the captain’s chair, and sat in the co-pilot’s seat. The cockpit smelled of leather seats, hot metal baking in the sun and the pungent tang of engine oil. Ben delicately […]
