Chase Connor currently lives in Des Moines, Iowa with his husband, his dog, Rimbaud, and spends his days writing about the people who live (loudly and rent-free) in his head when he’s not busy being enthusiastic about naps and Pad Thai. Chase started his writing career as a confused gay teen looking for an escape from reality. Ten years later, one of the books he wrote during those years, Just A Dumb Surfer Dude: A Gay Coming-of-Age Tale, was published independently. Now with The Lion Fish Press (and almost 20 books later), Chase has numerous projects in various stages of completion and lined up for publishing. Chase is a multi-genre author, but always with a healthy dollop of gay.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Since I had an idea for two characters from very different backgrounds falling in love swirling around in my head, I wanted a stark contrast in them - sunny with fair features/a bit emo and dark features. One of them the sweet, amiable All-American boy and the other the slightly brooding artistic type. A bit trope-y, but always fun. While they were not based on real people, I did borrow some of my favorite parts of their personalities from people I know, like Ian's patience and placidity and Mike's optimism and curiosity. Additionally, it was important to me to show that what you see on the outside does not always match the inside - Ian's standoffish demeanor belied a delicate soul and Mike's looks and sunny personality contradicted his struggles with confidence. Ultimately, I think the most important thing to me with Ian and Mike was to show their willingness to discover who a person truly is on the inside, regardless of how circumstances try to get in the way.(less)

“Winning doesn’t matter if you’re broken afterwards,” I replied.
“You’re not broken.” He said. “At least, not for long.”
“Are you trying to finish putting me back together?” I pulled my face back to glare at him. “Is that what this is about tonight?”
Mike grabbed my head and pulled me into him, kissing me tenderly on the lips. I let him.
“It’s about letting you know that someone would have cared.” He whispered as he pulled back from my mouth. “If you had just let him.”
I stared at him.
“I want to care about you for as long as you’ll let me.”
Chase Connor, A Surplus of Light

“How long have you loved me?” Mike asked, his voice low.
I turned my face to his.
“Since you were worried about the squirrel being dead,”
I replied. “Since I saw your heart.”
Chase Connor, A Surplus of Light

“The real question is when didn’t I know I loved you?”
“When didn’t you know?” He asked.
“When I didn’t know you existed,” I said. “Once I knew you existed, well, there wasn’t a time I didn’t love you.”
