Men read my books.

You heard me. MEN READ MY BOOKS.

"Yes," you might say, "but, you know…" *whispers* "they're gay men."

The GCLS con always leaves an afterglow. Face muscles tired from smiling, arms still warm from the hugs. Excitement from the awards, from dancing the night away. Utter exhaustion. This year, though, something else is lingering. Frustration, outrage. Resolve. I had the great pleasure and honor of... Read more of this blog post »

In the glow of the irradiated, red sky, Tusk had watched her pack die, one by one. Most had been born wrong to begin with and only lasted as long as they had through sheer stubborn resolve. Tusk had been lucky. She sported a pair of withered wings on her back. They were useless but didn’t get in...

One of my Secrets of Adulthood is: “Always remember how easy it is to forget.”


I’ve tried a lot of things — keeping a one-sentence journal, taking tourist photos of my own romance — to help hang on to memories.


It’s funny, though, what can unleash a memory. A smell, for instance, can invoke memorie...
