The title was an easy choice because Julie, my heroine, was a side character in another book, Rough Canvas, back in 2007, and she's waited all these years for her hero to step forward. His name is Desmond Hayes and he's a roofer by trade and a rigger (rope guy) in the BDSM world. I can't wait to share their story with everyone!(less)

Right no…moreMorgan, I'm sure I will, because I enjoy the male/male dynamic both on its own and as a vital component of threesomes (two male, one female)! Right now I have Rough Canvas (contemporary) and Night's Templar (paranormal) as my "strictly male/male" stories, as well as a follow up free novella on Marcus and Thomas's relationship. It's called First Christmas and, as you can guess, is about their first Christmas together (grin). If you haven't read that one, it's a free download at the JWH Connection fan forum, access info here - You may have read all three of those, but I wanted to make sure you knew what was available.

I have a couple male/male ideas percolating in my head for future books. In the Vampire Queen series, there's a vampire with a wolf shifter servant that was introduced in Night's Templar, so I'm sure I'll be writing a story about Cai and Rand in the future. And I have another standalone contemporary I might put with the Nature of Desire series, my catch all for contemporary D/s relationships that don't fit anywhere else (lol). anyhow, no timetable for these quite yet, but as soon as I know when I'll be doing them, you all will hear about it through website (In the Works page), fan forum, FB and Twitter for sure! Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks for asking. :>(less)

Books, Ideas and Censorship

Want to test an author or a reader’s blood pressure? Talk about censoring books. Three things came together in the past week, inspiring me to choose this as a blog topic:

First: I saw an article about banning a particular book from a school library. I have not read the book, but it seemed to be about teaching kids to be comfortable with their bodies and sexuality. The contentious issue cited (thoug

My favorite fictional couple would probably be Lyssa and Jacob from Joey Hill's Vampire Queen series. But my true favorite if I can be unconventional for a moment is not necessarily a couple, but a threesome, also from the Vampire Queen series, Daega See Grey’s answer.

“If my Master is lost, I'll find him. I'll lead him back to himself, because to serve doesn't always mean to follow.”

“Death's wisdom is finding, at the end, that you think only of those you loved, and why you didn't love them more. Love is the only true force that endures.”
Joey W. Hill, Vampire Trinity

“With our limited life spans, we mere mortals have to figure out what best to do with our time so that when it ends we aren't ashamed to put our name on it, call it our life.”

“...our nature and purpose is, more than anything else, to love and to make love, to take joy from the beauty of the world, to live with an awareness that the future is not as real a place for any one of us as are the present and the past.”
Dean Koontz, Fear Nothing

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”

Dumbledore beamed at him, and his voice sounded loud and strong in Harry’s ears even though the bright mist was descending again, obscuring his figure.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“I’d give him anything. I’d give him everything. If I had the power, I’d give him the world.”
