  1. such a darling story :) really made me smile!

  2. Hi, I just found a free kindle copy of Wes and Kit, and I started trying to find a bibliography for you, or bio, list of when works were published, anything. But there is not much out there about you, I didn't even see a Wikipedia page or a page on one of the "Wiki" sites that are not part of the original, but follow the style and tend to be subject-based. I'm sure there are quite a few on gay romance! Anyway, if you are out there, I'd love a link, if not, I would highly recommend that you get yourself on some of those sites. I don't know Wikipedia's rules on writing about one's self, but I'm sure a friend or publisher, or you under a pseudonym could do it. In the meantime, if you don't have a link, could you maybe post a list of your work in chronological order and with anything that happens in the same "series" or whatever tagged as such on this site? I for one would really appreciate it! (Once your wrists are up for it, of course--I have a genetic condition that affects all my joints and connective tissue, and my wrists get very angry with me, but depending on the cause, there are so many great treatment options. I can share some of my lifetime of experiences if you are interested. I am almost 33, and my body started falling apart when I was 9, so I have nearly 15 years of experience in traditional and alternative medicine, and I love the idea that any of the misery I have gone through could help spare someone else done suffering. That makes it almost seem like there is a point to it. Or at least that's how I choose to look at it.)
    Anyway, I look forward to reading your work, once I am sure it has no prequels or isn't part of a bigger story. I'm big on reading things in the order they were written. :)
    Thanks so much for any help, and I really do hope your wrists feel better soon!

    1. Thanks for your interest!!

      I don't think I'll make a wiki. I'm not that technically skilled. I believe all my books are able to be read alone, although some are connected, in series or more loosely.

      There's a list on Amazon:

      And Goodreads:

      I always try to list what books it's related to in the description of any book. I hope that helps a bit. :-)

      I've had joint pain off and on since I was a teenager, but I don't have a real condition (that I know of), just sensitivity to overuse and weather changes. I take a lot of supplements which seem to help a lot of the time. We had a huge weather change recently so I suspect that triggered my pain. It's improving a lot. I'm sorry you have to deal with it all the time - that must be intense (and very difficult).

      Sorry for the slow reply!! :-)
