Sensually Wicked Man Love

The thoughts and challenges I come across in being a heterosexual woman, wife and mother who loves to write m/m erotic romances. I'm not gay or male, but the thoughts of two gorgeous, confident men together is my idea of a hot time! I write for others, both men and women, who feel the same.

I'm an EPPIE finalist!

THE LOST TEMPLE OF KARTTIKEYA has been named a finalist in the 2008 EPICon awards in the GLBT category. I'll be going to Portland in March to see if I won this year. Last year I was a finalist with DETAILS OF THE HUNT. It would be fabulous to win, but right now I'm thrilled with being the only author in this category to make the short list two years in a row! It really is exciting. I'm grateful for the opportunity to support EPIC and the recognition for my writing!

Change of plans

There's been a change of authors for the coming vampire anthology BLOOD CLAIM. J.J. Massa had an unexpected project arise that needs her attention so her story isn't going to be available for press time. But, never fear, the fabulous Jet Mykles has agreed to step in and contribute a short vampire story to the volume! How cool is that? Jet, Angela and me. Now there is an eclectic trio for you! Should have a little something for everyone's taste in M/M vampire erotic romance in this one! Thank you, Jet, it's much appreciated and anticipated!

Channeling ghosts

In October MLR Press published a ghost anthology with stories from William Maltese, Sarah Black, Josh Lanyon and me titled SCARED STIFF.

We never talked about our stories among us, all four of us just went off and wrote our tales. When it came to editing time, our editor contacted Josh and I and told us our stories were too similar, too many elements were alike, something needed to change. We decided in the long run that it was kind of creepy but kind of cool that the stories, never having been discussed before hand, had turned out so similar.

We both wrote about locations by the sea, broken hearts, ghostly tragic love affairs in the past, mysterious hauntings and even have one character names the same-Mason. It seemed like Josh and I were channeling each other or channeling at least the same spirit! Now I find out there is one more element that defies reasonable logic in the book. It seems that during one scene in my story I inadvertently use the wrong name for the character that Josh and I both used. I call my 'Mason' --- believe it or not-- 'JOSH' during that one scene! I can't believe it. I missed in the re-read, missed it in the edits and missed it in proofing. Just like a ghost, it couldn't be seen!

Cool Weirdness, yes?
