Chase Connor 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 i

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)

Quotes by Chase Connor  (?)

“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

“I’ll be back,” I whispered to him.
“I’m not leaving.” He said.
“Is that a promise?” I bit at my lower lip with a smile.
“I’d promise you the moon and then find a way to deliver, Ian.”
Chase Connor, A Surplus of Light

“I’ve loved you since I first saw the light of the sun, felt its warmth,” I replied. “Because I knew that it was telling me that you were coming.”
Chase Connor, A Surplus of Light
