Keith Walker, a mall bookstore employee, is struggling to get through another miserable holiday season while trying to preserve a crumbling long-term relationship. One of his few comforts is his morning coffee made by a good-looking, younger barista. Austin Novak felt an attraction when Keith started frequenting the coffee shop, but he doesn’t think the older man has any interest in him or his graphic novel collection.
A Christmas week snowstorm buries the city and locks Keith’s car into its parking spot. Keith decides to show Austin his gratitude for helping free the car from the ice with a dinner invitation. The meal becomes complicated when Austin meets Keith’s boyfriend, Shawn, and things go downhill from there when Shawn announces he’s heading to Cancún with his coworkers. Keith is caught between keeping his boyfriend happy and keeping his job. But Keith might not need a plane ticket to find the happiness that’s been missing from his life.

Good news! My contemporary western “Camouflage” is being published by Dreamspinner Press in Jan/Feb of 2017. It’s a little time off but well worth the wait I think for those of you who enjoy my contemporary work.
“Camouflage” is about Jake, a college grad who came back to the little eastern Oklahoma town he grew up in to help his grandparents. But now that they are gone, he’s trying to find his life. He begins talking on-line with Nash and invites him to visit him from Atlanta. But Nash can’t bring himself to tell Jake he’s a rent boy. After all, he’s just there to spend the week…
Luke looks something like the image I put on this page, but mostly it’s to put you in a cowboy frame of mind. I’ll keep you posted as things progress, and yes this makes the third manuscript in the process. Two are even novels!
Yes, it’s here already. Obsidian Sun was released today! If you like sword and sorcery fantasy novels, I think you’ll like this one. This is the first novel of a series and Obsidian Moons is well underway with 6000 words finished. And I have to say, Paul Richmond did a great job on the cover!
Anan, a spellweaver of the Talac people, returns from a hunting trip to find his village decimated, his mate dead, and everyone else captured by Varas slavers. The sole survivor is Terja, a young man without the velvet that covers most Talac, marking him as a spellspinner. Since Talac magic requires both a weaver and a spinner, Anan and Terja must move beyond their ingrained mistrust. All that remains is revenge and a desperate plan to rescue their tribesmen before they are sold to Varas pleasure houses. A goal Anan and Terja are willing to die for.
With the blessing of the Talac gods, they discover new and surprising ways to complement each other’s power. But as they race through terrain full of enemies and dangerous creatures to reach their people before they pass into Varas lands, they must take drastic steps to face the overwhelming odds against them. Understanding their connection might be their only hope.
