I grew up in the fifties and sixties, and that is reflected in my books quite often. I spent twenty years in law enforcement, and traveled the world, which also can be seen in my books and stories. While the genre I write in is technically called erotic romance, what I actually write are stories with a plot, which include sexual behavior on the part of the characters. That is because most people's lives include sex and erotic gratification. And, since most people wonder about lifestyles that are sometimes called taboo, or forbidden, I write about them, occasionally too. I believe that two consenting adults know more about their own happiness than anyone else, and that even if they are mistaken, they have the right to make their own choices. I also believe that love is the key to making choices that will not turn out to be mistakes.
Many of my ideas involve coming of age, which usually takes place in the early to mid teens. Publishing standards, however, require that all characters in the published version of the book be over 18. That's not realistic, but it's just the way things are. If you purchase one of my books and would like to have the original version, unedited for age, send a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll happily provide you with a copy of the original at no additional cost. It is not illegal to write or possess such versions. It's just unpopular with certain special interest groups who desire to restrict your freedom.

A great story by a master storyteller. If some of it seems a little far-fetched Bob makes it believable. The people he wants you to like you like a lot. The ones he doesn't want you to like you don't. You want the main characters to be happy. If it turns out a little unconventional you're all right with that! Five stars plus. RJV

Wow. Wonderful story...the premise, well it requires suspension of disbelief, but not as much as you'd think, AND Mr. L shows his skill of creating deep characters with sensibl-er, well *realistic* motivations and thought-processes (which, like actual people in real life, aren't always _sensible_ ). i.e. though the direction and destination are somewhat unexpected to reach...the journey taken by these characters and the choices they make (and mistakes) believably lead to this destination.
The technical writing is near perfect (the pdf version had a few formatting typos - typically at the 'scene breaks') and actually better than what you'd see in professional newspapers or even scholarly journals nowadays.
And the...well, I find I keep complimenting this man that his sex scenes are great, but the best part of his (non-brief 'stroke') stories are the romances and relationships.
Well worth the price, and if I knew someone was fine with the particular twists that this story diverts to, I'd readily recommend it to them!

A good story. Some stretch in the premise and plot.
