Can we have a short intro about yourself?
Well, I think of myself as a funny, loving, family-oriented man and a proud member of the LGBTQ community. After twenty-seven years in law enforcement, I retired in 2015 to focus on my writing full time. When I am not writing, I enjoy traveling, lying by a body of water soaking up the sun, and watching a good movie while snuggled up on the couch with my beautiful husband and our loyal canine companion (Nettie the Sheepadoodle).
What kind of books do you write?
I write Male Male Romance books that present a moral dilemma that the characters have to resolve in order for their relationship to work. I try to infuse real emotions into real situations that someone in the LGBTQ community would face, whether it’s at their job, coming out to family members, or going against the grain of what is expected of them. Love doesn’t always come at the most convenient time
