Welcome. My nonfiction consists of the HOW TO WRITE series for fiction and nonfiction writers. My fiction is gay romance not intended for readers younger than age eighteen. I like humor, strong plots, vivid cultural details, and complicated characters and hope to offer you the same.
For four years, I was one of five paid reviewers for the All Romance Ebooks newsletter until the reviewing program was discontinued. I was the reviewer for the gay romance category. Currently I am the editor of the Fiction Writing topic at BellaOnline.com where I publish weekly articles, a newsletter, and forum advice on how to write fiction. Most recently, I have become the editor of the Romance Novels topic at BellaOnline.com where I review both traditional romance novels and LGBT romance novels.
