I write, I read, I cook. I work. I live and love. A wisher, a hope-er, a dreamer. A human. I've no illusions of grandeur, nor fame, nor fortune. I write simply for the joy of writing; and if others find joy in my writing, then all's the better.

Currently I'm working on my second novel - Snowboards & Tuxes and another short in the Graffiti Grind series. The short will be published by Beaten Track Publishing in a holiday anthology. Keep an eye on my blog for updates.

Half the time, she's mostly only partially awake and I'm basically just talking to myself, but it helps. When I've tried to just talk to myself (an admission to my slight insanity) I get absolutely nothing!
Every once in a while, my mom gets a little embarrassed by the conversation, partly because she's a lesbian and I mainly write gay male romance and partly because what I write is proof that her little girl is not very sheltered or innocent. XD(less)

My Sincerest and Most Humble Apologies to Everyone

I know that I basically dropped off the face of the earth, and I wanted to make apologies to people who I spoke with frequently or were waiting for new content from me.

There is no excuse for my lack of appearance. I will say that I've been dealing with a lot of personal issues including my carpal tunnel flaring up again. Also, I lost internet access for a while. Still, I could have gone to the lib Read more of this blog post »

Marie Sexton
“Jared?” His fingers were playing gently in my curls.
“Yes?” I was more than halfway asleep, perfectly warm and content, back in my own bed. With him.
“Say it for me.”
“You’re heavy.”
“No.”
“You’re a manipulative bastard.”
“No.” He was laughing.
“You’re right.”
He gave one hard tug on my hair. “That’s not it either.”
“I love you?”
He sighed contentedly. “That’s the one.”
Marie Sexton, Promises
