I know, I know. That was super-cheesy, the way I said I was “coming out” with my first gay romance. A lot of people didn’t know I even wrote gay romance so the announcement felt a little like—you know what? Nevermind. But, it’s true! I kept it quiet until the ink was dry and the manuscript was submitted, but I’ve now been a few rounds with my editor and I’m finally ready to share the news: my first gay romance, Adam Bomb, will release in 2020!Read More
Exciting news! This week, I added the first of my stories to Radish, a platform with a focus on serial releases! Books are published in small installments via the Radish mobile app, which focuses on customizing the experience to the smartphone reader.

So, how does it really work? The first 3 episodes of every story are always free. To read ongoing episodes that are not free, you buy “coins” and use them to unlock the content.Read More
I realized that I talk a lot in my newsletter about how awesome it is to be part of my VIP Reader Street Team. Then, I realized that without knowing what happens there, you' couldn’t possibly understand the degree of awesomeness.

That’s where my habit of doing great giveaways for my most faithful readers and reviewers was born…Read More
Yeah. I know you do. Because the holidays are coming. And, if your family is as crazy as mine, you need to laugh to keep from crying. Worst Holiday Ever: A Family Drama Romance Anthology is my brainchild, the first in a series of romance anthologies that explore what happens when holidays go wrong. And wintertime holidays are first up to bat. The series shares stories of love and holiday survival among couples from varied backgrounds: straight couples, gay couples, inter-racial and inter-species couples…this collection has it all. Having your wife find out you’re an angel when your super-natural nemesis crashes Christmas? Ex-con cousins breaking bread with the cop in the family? It’s hard to beat that kind of drama.Read More
I was stoked to have made the decision to try out Kindle Scout for the next title you've heard me rave about, The Secret Ingredient, a culinary romance about a frustrated female television chef named Marcella and her sexy neighbor-for-the-summer, Max. Cella, ostensibly there to write her next cookbook is licking her wounds from a number of professional failures, and is itching for a break from her predatory agent, Liz. It just so happens that the guy who owns the house next door is the nephew of a late, lauded chef whose restaurant closed when she died…Read More
