Loving a Straight Boy – Free Read Release

Earlier this week, I sat on my balcony splitting my attention between the book I was reading, and watching a new neighbor move into our condo complex. (I’d later find out his name is Noah. He’s incredibly free-spirited, a painter (artist), a surfer, and has this really cool bohemian vibe goin’ on.) As I watched him––clad only in a baggy pair of cargo shorts, high-top Converse, and an interesting array of skin ink––I couldn’t help but notice the way his friend/moving helper openly admired him. Loving a Straight Boy was born.

It’s a free read, The download link can be found in the book’s Goodreads description HERE.

My most sincere thanks to Karrie Jax for the beautiful cover, and to Jack L. Pyke for her editing brilliance!

Hardcover Editions of Grif’s Toy and Wes’ Denial

Hey Everyone!

I’m so excited to announce Grif’s Toy and Wes’ Denial are now both available in hardcover. Woohoo!

I decided to make them exclusive to Lulu due to redistribution pricing – of which I have no control over. Meaning, each would need to retail at other marketplaces (such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble) for upwards of $40.00 – which is insane! However, with copies sold via Lulu I’m able to offer a massive discount – not something I’m allowed to do with other retailers.

If you’re interested in a hard Grif or Wes *winks*, check out this LINK.

Quillon’s Covert – 5 stars – Hearts On Fire Reviews


Wendy says:

I think it was extremely important to establish a hook that could make the relationship between father and son become something more, something believable, something cherished. The authors found that perfect hook that made it all come together and just feel (dare I say) right. Love truly does come in all shapes, sizes, and configurations, and this book just proves that point.
