I'm an openly gay author owned by his dog, named Bandit. (Hold on Bandit...I'll be right there. I'm busy!)

My husband and I recently moved from the Witch City of Salem, Massachusetts to sunny Florida where I'm now able to focus on my writing. (When Bandit isn't making me take him for walks or requesting a biscuit for the treat jar.)

In 2013, I released a book of short stories called NOT SURE BOYS which received great reviews of which I am forever grateful. I followed up in the fall with a novella—a brooding, dark thriller—called PAINTING WITH WINE. The “sexy time” in the wine cellar has been quite the topic for discussion around the dinner table.

Hillary Rodham Clinton
“Gay people are born into, and belong to, every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths. They are doctors and teachers, farmers and bankers, soldiers and athletes. And whether we know it or whether we acknowledge it, they are our family, our friends, and our neighbors. Being gay is not a Western invention. It is a human reality.”
Hilary Clinton
