Sarah Black writes contemporary and historical gay romance and mystery.

IRL, she is an artist and a single mom. She's a Navy veteran and likes to keep a tank full of gas in case she needs to roam. She likes to move around. Maybe it's a commitment thing.

She believes in the power of storytelling, and the power of craft to tell a story well.

comments about Sarah:

"She has a hard head and it has gotten her in trouble more than once. Which I have told her, more than once." by Sarah's mom.

"My mom likes the library, and she likes to go to the bookstore. And she likes to lay on her bed and read. She reads on the couch, too." by Sarah's son

Thank you for your question- I have started writing again, and I have a novella coming out from Dreamspinner next year titled American Road Trip. They have another short novel manuscript under consideration now called Black Mountain that is a romantic suspense novel. Keep your fingers crossed they give me a yes on that one! Hugs, Sarah(less)

I love those characters as well, and have imagined sending them into all sorts of adventures- Siberia, South Korea, and just recently, Lithuania. Kim is a few years older, and he and Abdullah have split (for the moment). He is running loose all over the world with his camera, documenting the mad world. I don't have anything planned at the moment, other than to think about them when I'm doing laps in the pool and such, but will put some stars next to any decent plots I come up with for them. (Martha has gone to law school.) Hope all is well with you- hugs, Sarah(less)

Michael’s Side of the Story

Amir was leaning against a wooden door painted cobalt blue, set into a sandstone wall the perfect rosy gold of the setting sun. He looked irritated. Not at all the beautiful untamed Sheik of a million romance novels that Michael had envisioned. Amir tossed the tail end of the white turban over his shoulder, crossed his arms over...

“Miss Murphy in first grade

wrote its name in chalk

across the board and told us

it was roaring down the storm tracks

of the milky way at frightful speed

and if it wandered off its course

and smashed into the earth

there'd be no school tomorrow.”
Stanley Kunitz

“I dropped my hoe and ran into the house and started to write this poem, 'End of Summer.’ It began as a celebration of wild geese. Eventually the geese flew out of the poem, but I like to think they left behind the sound of their beating wings.”

Rob Rosen Sarah, hi. Hope all is well. Since we’re Goodreads friends, I thought I’d share my latest novel, Midlife Crisis, with you.

"Rob Rosen does madcap gay humor better than anyone else writing today. Midlife Crisis is no exception." - Neil Plakcy, author of The Mahu Investigations

I hope you can pick up a copy. As a special thanks for your time, feel free to message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/therobrosen) for a free PDF copy of any of my other 9 novels, which you can find here: http://www.therobrosen.com

All the best,

Rob Rosen

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation, which recently made the Bram Stoker Award Preliminary Ballot. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to vist my site here:
