Hi everyone-- I was just adding and realized that my new release, Beach Balls, is my 10th published book.(Available at Amazon, Are and B&N) The first book came out in January of 2011. My 11th book is in editing and will be released on July 24th and i'm writing the 12th, so i thought i should pause to commemorate a round number.
Only a couple years ago i could never have imagined all this would happen.As you probably know, i didn't set out to be a fiction writer. Since i write in my day job, that fulfilled the need that all writers have to write. Then a couple years ago it just occurred to me to write an erotic romance. It only took a few minutes of story creation to realize this was FUN. I thought up an older woman/younger man story idea and then magically added another man and became both a menage writer and a gay romance writer in one press of the keys. That established my pattern and i have been writing in these subgenres ever since.
Here's a little rundown on the perfect (HA!) 10:
The Genetic Attraction Series-- Runner-up for Best Series of 2011 in the LRC Awards
The Scientist and the Supermodel (MM but with some MMF overtones)-- the title says it all. A young scientist who has a huge yen for his older boss meets a beautiful male supermodel and is forced to confront his own sexual identity.
Genetic Attraction (MMF) -- (CAPA Nominee) A brilliant female scientist has a yen for her younger research partner and discovers that his girlfriend is actually a boyfriend. The two men invite her to their home for the weekend and...
Deceptive Attraction (MMF) -- A rising young soccer star (the younger brother of the scientist) yearns for a more authentic life then meets a mysterious guy as pretty as a girl and a woman who looks like a young boy and they throw both his sex life and his career into chaos.
(My next book, coming out July 24th, is the fourth book in this series. It's called Genetic Celebrity and it takes place in the world of modeling -- and food! )
The Balls to the Wall Series-- Bestsellers in Gay Romance
Volley Balls (Gay romance) -- An out and proud art dealer is harassed by two Aussie volleyballers on the beach in Laguna and ends up involved in a whole different way!
Fire Balls (Gay romance)-- A flamboyant artist who is also a black belt in karate yearns for a "straight gay" firefighter but thinks he could never have him so he sets the firefighter up with his friend.
Beach Balls (Gay romance) -- A closeted developer lawyer meets a beautiful man underwater only to discover later that they are natural enemies.
(There will be another book in this series either later this year or the beginning of 2013. This will be Jerry the surfer/firefighter's book.)
The Aloysius Tales -- Paranormal Gay Romance bestsellers
Spell Cat (Gay paranormal) -- A powerful male witch meets a handsome physics professor but humans steal the energy from witches. His black cat intervenes.
(I am currently writing the next book in this series and expect it will be released in the fall.)
The Fairy Godmother Stories -- Contemporary Fantasy
Sinders and Ash (Gay romance)-- A young guy who works in the housekeeping department meets the son of the fifth richest man in America. Can they get together? Only his fairy godmother knows for sure.
(There will be another book in this series later this year or the beginning of next year).
Stand alone books:
Golden Dancer (MMM Romantic Suspense)-- Winner of Best Book of 2011 (gay menage) in the TRR Best of 2011 Awards. An investigative reporter falls for a beautiful male ballet dancer only to find he is already involved with a billionaire art collector that the reporter is investigating for theft.
Mistletowed (MM/MMF/MF)-- A holiday novella about seven friends who switch partners and ideas under the influence of what may or may not be magical mistletoe.
So that's what i've been doing for the last couple years. It's thrilling to be at number ten and counting. Thank you for making it possible. *giant hugs and love* Hey, if you'll keep reading, i'll keep writing. : )
