We all need an escape from time to time, and laughing is how we get through the dark times. It keeps us sane and lowers our stress levels.

I write humorous novels and sometimes sex can be comical. But humor is subjective and you're certainly entitled to your opinion. "Hate" is a strong word, however. My books are meant to be lighthearted escapes. Perhaps you'll find another of my novels that is more to your liking.(less)

I know, I know. It’s been forever since I posted here. Forgive me. I kept meaning to, and this post is swiped from the newsletter to subscribers I mailed out recently so it’s sort of cheating, but life continued to get in the way of a real post.
