I believe a person should be able to follow his or her own heart, but I also believe long-term happiness, and acceptance, are best sought with a realistic understanding of the problems involved, where it can be found. No one person can provide that for others, but I believe an approach to issues with both the light and the dark side of things is the most helpful.
My novels tend to be controversial. Things happen and views are expressed by characters within that, variously, many people will agree with and that others will not agree with, because that is part of life. As well, if someone reads carefully, she will notice that, often, a character will present as one way at one time in her life, yet present quite differently, with different views, at a later time in life, mainly because issues can and may evolve through people over the course of decades. As well, a reader may notice that a view expressed in one story is represented differently in another, by another character.
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 the treatment industry—I do clearly say so—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.
Thank you, and blessings to all,
