I’ve been following the news, hanging on every word, every story about the Orlando massacre. I’ve felt helpless, I’ve felt terrified, I’ve felt angry. But I’ve felt such love, as well, such solidarity with other LBGTQ communities around the world, and that gives me such hope. I’ve written to my State Representatives and Congresspeople, telling… Continue reading What can I say that hasn’t already been said?
Did I mention I’ve got a book coming out in June? June 23rd, to be exact. As in, *this* June 23rd. That means I’m a busy little bee behind the scenes here — interviews to respond to, blog tour posts to write.

Currently ranking as#180,945 on the Literature & Fiction>Genre Fiction list, and #20, 376 in the Gay & Lesbian fiction best seller list!!! Now, that might seem ludicrous to be happy that one’s book is #20,376 on any list, but when one considers how many possible entries on that list (over 2 million!), 20,376 seems quite… Continue reading Right Here Waiting is back on TWO of Amazon Best Sellers lists!
Whimsical, and brutal, bitter and kind, jaded and earnest – Trip Morgan is a incredibly nuanced, multi-faceted character that claims your heart even as you want to shout at him in frustration. He doesn’t pull any punches. From the first moment he tells of his unconventional birth, you realize he’s got more going on inside… Continue reading A 5-star Book Review — Small Wonders by Courtney Lux
