Charlie Cochet is the international bestselling author of the THIRDS series. Born in Cuba and raised in the US, Charlie enjoys the best of both worlds, from her daily Cuban latte to her passion for classic rock.

Currently residing in Central Florida, Charlie is at the beck and call of a rascally Doxiepoo bent on world domination. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found devouring a book, releasing her creativity through art, or binge watching a new TV series. She runs on coffee, thrives on music, and loves to hear from readers.

Hi, Maryanne! My apologies for the late reply. (Goodreads doesn't seem to be notifying me when someone leaves a question).

Yes, there absolutely will be an Ash & Cael book. I'm actually writing it at the moment. Ash & Cael's book is called Against the Grain and it's book 5 in the THIRDS series. Although the timeline continues from the rest of the series, it's from Ash and Cael's points of view. So this is the series at the moment:

I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying the series! Great question! Thank you for asking. Currently, the THIRDS couples planned to receive their own stories are Dex/Sloane, Ash/Cael, Calvin/Hobbs, Seb/Hudson, Austen/Zach, and Lou/Bradley.

In the THIRDS world, being LGBT isn't a problem (it comes up in Rack & Ruin, Book 3). There's still some old fashioned homophobia, but very little because when Therians emerged, Humanity refocused its bigotry and prejudice on this new species. There was a new unfamiliar threat and the Human race needed to reinforce its numbers. So gender, sexuality, and race was no longer an issue, only being Therian.

I know it may seem like all the guys in the THIRDS are gay or bi, but that's only because the series is focusing on one particular team and fellas connected to the team like Lou who's Dex's ex-boyfriend. Destructive Delta is only one team within Unit Alpha which has ten other teams. Unit Alpha has over 1500 agents, and their headquarters where they operate from has 8000 agents. So there's a great big mix of all genders and sexualities, the series just happens to focus on the same-sex couples centered around Destructive Delta. Lieutenant Sparks, Letty, and Nina, are all in M/F relationships (we'll get more of Letty and her relationship in Ash's book). There are also plenty of other relationships going on in other teams.

Apart from handling Therian threats, the THIRDS organization promotes equality for all, which is why it's equally divided among Therian and Human agents. They have a vast representation of agents of all genders, sexualities, nationalities, races, and disabilities. They're the first organization in the THIRDS world to boast such diversity in law enforcement. I'll stop here before this turns into a book. LOL

I hope this helps! :D (less)

When I set out to write the THIRDS, I never imagined the impact this series would have on my life. I wanted to write something different, something fun that was jam-packed with action, humor, and romance. It was certainly a labor of love, and it’s been such an incredible experience, one made even more spectacular by my readers. Thanks to this series, I’ve met the most fantastic group of people...

“I am fucking charming!” Dex shouted, his entire face going beet red. “I am the most charming motherfucker you will ever know, so kiss my perfectly perky ass!”

After some consideration, Sloane cocked his head to one side and shrugged. “I’ve seen better.”

“Oh, now you’re insulting my ass?”
Charlie Cochet, Hell & High Water

“Cael, come on. Stop licking the dude. That's gross."

Letty let out a snort. "Please, like you don't lick dudes."

"That's different," Dex explained with a grimace. "None of those dudes were Ash. Besides, last time I checked, Ash was allergic to nuts.”

Thank you for accepting! I was really surprised when I heard about Tokyopop. It's a real shame. I'm with you on hoping someone continues Junjou, the characters were great, the artwork-in both the manga and anime, fantastic. I'm currently following Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi, but that will be coming to an end soon as well. Though I've yet to find a character who can compare with Misaki! :D
