New Cover!

A couple of weeks ago, my thirteen year-old daughter, Gillian, opined that she was bored and I suggested she draw something since she loves art and she is very talented at it. She suggested that maybe she could draw something for one of my book covers. Most of my books already have book covers arranged…

Call Me By Your Name – A Return to Eden?

*Contains spoilers* I have watched this film three times now, and it gets better at each viewing. Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name is a feast for the senses – an erotic buffet filled to the brim with symbolism, intellect and culture. But most of all, innocence. Call Me By Your Name is the…

RTC Prize Pack Raffle

Last year at the Romancing the Capital Convention in Kanata, Ontario, I raffled off a hard copy of Michael Stoke’s book Masculinity. To participate, attendees had to give me their email address in person. I had such a blast meeting people who wanted to sign up for the draw that I’m giving away another wonderful prize…

New World – Friday Flash Fic., Dec. 29th

*This story is based on actual events. I woke in the darkness and remembered that I’d had the nurses take my son to watch and feed in the night so I could sleep. Since my husband had gone home to look after our two-year old daughter, I was on my own this time. I had…

Dream Daddy!

My thirteen year-old daughter somewhat bashfully introduced me to this game. She thought she might get in trouble for inappropriate Youtube watching but when I sat down with her and watched Markiplier hook up with Craig at the campsite, and then googled some great articles about the game, I was reassured about its mostly PG…

Hot Off The Press!

WOOT! I’ve finally figured out how to add an email sign-up form to my website and Facebook Page! Which means I can now send out a monthly newsletter featuring exclusive excerpts, hot photos, and information about upcoming books, contests and giveaways! I’ve been wanting to do this for some time but didn’t think my free…

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…

Thomas Synnamon’s Leather and Lace

Several years ago I stumbled upon the photography of Mr. Thomas Synnamon. I say stumbled upon but really it was an honest head-over-heels flip out when I saw this initial image from his Leather and Lace 2011 calendar: Now, I happen to have a thing for androgyny. I also have a thing for men’s forearms….

The Alternative

There’s a brand new adult store in town and it’s in my neighbourhood! The Alternative Adult Store, at 2407 Kaladar Avenue, is a fantastic space with a variety of stimulating items on display. Of course my favourite spot was an Alice in Wonderland themed back room full of BDSM delights like cock cages and anal…

New Layout

I’ve seen some really stunning author websites recently so I decided mine needed a bit of an overhaul. The previous layout was very cluttered with a ton of menu items. I found another free WordPress theme that looked much cleaner and changed my menu to a more streamlined format. Had my cute IT guy working…

Why Gay Erotica?

The one question I’m asked over and over again is “How did you get into writing gay erotic romance?” I always try to think of a short answer, because most of the time the questioner doesn’t have an hour for me to explain. So, I thought I’d do it in a blog post. Because it…

CanQueer/Velvet Studio Interview!

On Saturday I was invited to sit down with Luke Smith, Sebastien Plante and Mike Tattersall to discuss the ins and outs (pun intended) of being a woman who writes gay erotica. The resulting discussion proved fascinating and allowed me to expand on what inspired me to branch out into this scintillating arena: CanQueer Episode…
