White Balance – Chapter Nine

I woke up to the alarm on Jeremy’s phone at seven thirty. He had to meet Kureck at his studio at ten and wanted plenty of time to get ready. When I felt him start to move out from under the bedsheets I wrapped a hand around his wrist, keeping him close. “Wait a second.”…

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…

Jingle Balls – Friday Flash Fic., March 16

Dear Lord, it was sweltering outside. How was I supposed to get in the Christmas spirit surrounded by palm trees, surfers and ancient volcanoes? I’d jumped at the opportunity to move to Hawaii when the possibility of a transfer had come up within the company. It had been absolutely amazing for the first six months…

Scrabble – Nathan’s Flash Fic Challenge for March

My buddy, Nathan, runs a Flash Fiction challenge each month. He picks randomly from a selection of genres, objects, and locations and the results for March were: a Romance, with a VHS cassette, in a fire watch tower.

Gifs of the Day

In honour of Thimothée Chalomet and Armie Hammer in Call Me By Your Name. The most beautiful, enchanting movie I’ve seen in ages.

Craving – Friday Flash Fic., Feb. 15th

I was on the treadmill at the gym when I got an idea for this flash fiction prompt. I realized that these guys could easily be two characters from my Vampire erotica WIP, Diamond Dogs. Theo Matowski is a devoted lover to my protagonist, Gemini (a bisexual, androgynous female vampire who keeps Theo and his…

“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…
