Wade Kelly lives and writes in conservative, small-town America on the east coast where it’s not easy to live free and open in one's beliefs. Wade writes passionately about controversial issues and strives to make a difference by making people think. Wade does not have a background in writing or philosophy, but still draws from personal experience to ponder contentious subjects on paper. There is a lot of pain in the world and people need hope. When not writing, she is thinking about writing, and more than likely scribbling ideas on sticky notes in the car while playing "taxi driver" for her three children. She likes snakes, can’t spell, and has a tendency to make people cry.

Wade answered Karen D.'s question: Wade Kelly
I thought I answered this question, so sorry that it got lost for 9 months. Yes, Rob is the next book in the series. I hope to finish writing it this year. As for Rob and Russ? Hmm, maybe.

“Because I'm good with me & god, it's the "between me & the parents" part I still have problems with.”
Wade Kelly

“It's not about who you sleep with, or whether you know about sports or tools or have a pearl-wearing wife or whether commercials make you cry. [...] it's about whether you step up. When something hard comes along. A man steps up. He doesn't dodge it or run away from it or try to push it onto someone else. He steps up. Even if it isn't his responsibility. And that's why there are so many guys and so few men. Because stepping up is hard.”
Ben Monopoli, The Painting of Porcupine City

“I think it's romantic," she said mostly to Edward. "Cursed to live their lives in the shadows, to be together only under the cover of darkness... hiding their love from the sunlight."

"They're gay, honey," said Emma, "not vampires.”
Z.A. Maxfield, Crossing Borders

“Yeah, Jame. I don’t have a woman. I am sure as fuck not taking a guy. You can be my date.” Matt answered.

“Oh, because I’m not a woman, or a guy.”
Wade Kelly, When Love Is Not Enough

“What do you feel?” Curiosity hung in the air.

Matt was thankful Darian didn’t walk out except now he had to explain himself. “I feel jittery.”

“Oh, then it’s gotta be love.” Darian shook his head and turned away.

Matt knew sarcasm when he heard it. He grabbed Darian’s elbow and pulled him into his arms. Darian’s hands were smashed to his chest and his face was very close to Matt’s. “I’m not letting you walk out.” He asserted. “You make me feel sick.”

“Oh, that’s so much better.”

Wade Names Can Never Hurt Me would probably fit into the Contemporary Mainstream category in the M/M choice awards. Not sure what else. I guess I have to think about the books I've read to nominate.

I have more planned. Darian's story for sure. I even have a cover. But alas I am a slow writer. I have a book coming-out in July (ish) no date yet, but it is in edits with Dreamspinner and cover art is in the works. And I am writing two books right now. I plan to get to Darian later this year. Thanks for asking :D

Wade So, I blogged about the release date: August 16th. I talked about the frustration I've gone through in waiting that long. This book has takes 2 years to publish. There were major issues involving GRAMMAR, plot details, and the ending. BUT, I think I've learned something through it all. At least I hope I have! Read my blog (http://writerwadekelly.blogspot.com/2...) You'all are great! Really. Best fans in the world.
