I am an advocate for trans people, for transgender, transsexual, gender non-conforming and LGBTQI living. I not only write for entertainment but to address issues felt by minorities, which includes trans people as a whole and also minority groups within—views both popular and unpopular—with an underlying message throughout of the value of life, mutual acceptance, and mutual respect.
PLEASE NOTE: My novels tend to be controversial. My characters are usually in some form of conflict, working through issues, struggling with society or sometimes even with their own demons in an effort to find love and respect, happiness in life. A novel may walk with a character through her own hell, then glimpse by the end a new way for her to engage in her life—or an idea may be expressed one way, in one novel, only to be expressed differently in another novel, by the same or another character—how people's views change over time, in different situations, or as seen by others. Examples: In "Sliders," where Regina is seen as depressed later in life, she is portrayed heroically in "Hate Crimes"; in "Stealth," where Kay initially rejects transgenders, she learns better by the end; community is always praised in the novels "Out of the Closet", "Transmutation," and "Hate Crimes"; in "Falling in Love," Lourdes, the trans woman who was so difficult for Regina in "Sliders," meets her match in a trans man with whom she falls in love at a major air show.
Some novels, as a whole, are heavy and introspective, such as both Dark Side novels and "Hate Crimes"; some novels are happy for the most part, such as "Out of the Closet," and "Transmutation"; "Falling in Love" is particularly romantic; and "Trans Magic" and "Transmutation" are also the funnier two, through with some serious chapters. "Transmutation" is a trans utopian future.
Finally, I must note: I think of myself more as a storyteller than a writer. Transitions are expensive, sometimes costing several multiples of an annual salary, and sometimes the treatment industry charges way too much. In addition, when someone is hurting because she needs to change, or when someone's social or financial life has been affected in relation to a transition, money can be even harder to come by. In order to keep these books coming for free, I usually do not use an outside editor as I make no money off these books at all and editors are costly. I spend a great deal of time with each novel, but if a mistake is noted, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Without an editor, all these novels are all a work-in-progress, and I do depend on feedback about content. I do respond to such feedback in an effort to please, and go back and revise the novels. When enough modifications are made, I may put a "V" for Version on the cover to quickly indicate.
Thank you, and blessings to all,

I didn't review this one until I read Hate Crimes, but I loved it so much I thought I would. I loved FAlling in Love, also. It touched me. FTM's don't usually seem to want to be with MTF's, but Jim did, and I love him for it.
Lourdes is in this one, too, from Sliders: The Dark Side of Transgender. I wasn't sure I liked her in that one, but she was grewat in this o ne. She just had to loosen up, and it was Jim who helped her do it.

Magical ending. I have a friend who has had trouble being my friend, and I asked her to read this. I think it helped. The story gets off to a difficult start, but it builds and becomes the most beautiful. I love watching them together, and I do believe they help my friend udnerstand me. And the ending was so much. She has been hurt so much. She doesn't trust anyone. And to watch her learn she can! Thank you.

Thank you. Lourdes life is so miserable at first, but the minute she meets Jim at Oshkosh, WI, it takes off like a shot, and then she winds up so peaceful and in love. It's like he's her cure.
