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 […]

What can I say that hasn’t already been said?

I’ve been following the news, hanging on every word, every story about the Orlando massacre. I’ve felt helpless, I’ve felt terrified, I’ve felt angry. But I’ve felt such love, as well, such solidarity with other LBGTQ communities around the world, and that gives me such hope. I’ve written to my State Representatives and Congresspeople, telling […]

Did I mention I’ve got a book coming out in June? June 23rd, to be exact. As in, *this* June 23rd. That means I’m a busy little bee behind the scenes here — interviews to respond to, blog tour posts to write. I spent some time yesterday playing on Tumblr, or rather, having my characters […]

#AmWriting, #AmResearching, #AmDistracted

I am working on Book Two (which still has no tentative or working title. It’s named ‘New Book’ on my computer…how boring) and am elbows deep in research of all sorts and generally just happy as a clam. I need a particular setting for a particular scene, so I’m researching to augment what I remember […]

In the Hollywood adaptation of Right Here Waiting, who would play your main characters? Why

As my book is written as a love letter to Old Hollywood, I’m going to go with the classic Old Hollywood movie stars I had in the back of my mind while I was writing the novel. For the dashing and genial bomber pilot, Pete Montgomery, I would cast Gregory Peck: lanky and rawboned, but […]
