Somerville – Excerpt

  Darrin Peters stared at the memo in front of him. Written there on the Peters & Mayhew Construction letterhead, in his office manager’s distinctly neat writing was the following simple phrase: Please call Marco Zanetti at 1-902-749-4201 regarding renovations to the old house at Plover Point. Marco Zanetti. Darrin hadn’t encountered that name in…

Teaser, White Balance, Ch. 7

Jeremy stood just inside the door, staring at me. “Martin.” I didn’t answer him. I pretended I hadn’t heard him. “Martin,” he said louder. I glanced up. “What?” “What is your fucking problem all of a sudden?” He sounded angry and frustrated and I really couldn’t blame him. But all the careful restraint I’d imposed…

“Handcuff Me To The Goddamn Bed.”

While reading a wonderful Flash Fiction piece by my friend Patrick Colton, I was reminded of one of my favourite scenes from my debut published work, Exposure. I’m going to share it here with a reminder that you can read White Balance, the sequel to this novel, for free on my website as I write…

Teaser – The Little Drummer Boy

By Friday night it was obvious James wouldn’t be able to come through. “I feel terrible about this,” he said to us when he got home, “but I’m going to need to go into work tomorrow and Sunday. How’s the studying coming along, Sebastian?” Sebastian shrugged. “It’s under control. I’ll have to do some this…

RTC Readings/Excerpts

If you weren’t able to attend my reading last night at Romancing the Capital (there were many events going on) I’ve got them here! Reading/excerpt #1, from Beyond the Edge (Book 1 in The James Lucas Trilogy): “So dance with me…” He started moving and, by God if, once he forgot about everyone else, he…

Shower

“In the shower, please. I want you to clean each other and I want it to be thorough. That means behind the ears and in the crack. Got it?” “Yes, Sir,” we said. We stepped into the shower. It was only after I’d turned on my showerhead and turned around that I got a good…

Flashback

In The Loft – Book Three, James, Tate and Sebastian look back on some pivotal moments thanks to some archived CCTV camera footage.   The next afternoon we set ourselves up in the basement with pizza and beer. James had already transferred all the files to a memory stick as Donovan had suggested so he…

The Second Coming

When we got back to Michael’s I felt pretty tipsy from all the drinks I’d had. I tripped over the doormat and almost fell. He caught me. “Easy…” he said. He unlocked the door and helped me inside. He closed it behind us and looked at me, assessing. “What?” I said. A hearty belch escaped…

Red Rope and Gold Paint

*This scene takes place before a highly anticipated fetish party at La Petite Mort, a private club in Gatineau, Quebec. Nori pulled his phone from his pocket. “I have an idea for something. I ran it past Catherine and she liked it. Please tell me what you think?” He approached the three of us and…

Skate Lace

When we got home we went upstairs to change out of our skating gear. My jeans were still wet from a fall and I imagine James’ clothes were also damp. As I was arranging my stuff on the back of a chair to dry James called down the hall. “There’s lots of room in the…

Inspiration, January 29th

We sat close together on his sofa and watched a rerun of Hell’s Kitchen; I was so hot for Chef Ramsay, it wasn’t funny. I wanted him to kiss me with that fuck hot dirty mouth of his and tell me what to do. I told Michael all of this. He cracked up. All of…

Inspiration, November 19

“I want you upstairs,” I explained breathlessly. “And I am not letting you out of these fucking boots.” I finished doing up one boot and bent to kiss it before tying the other one. “You look really hot down there,” he murmured, watching as I finished the other one. I kissed it as well. I…
