• Posy Roberts has SPARK!

    I’m very honoured to welcome the very lovely and equally talented Posy Roberts to my blog today!!   Tell us about you! Who is Posy Roberts? I’m a curious learner who is constantly looking things up. I’m also a mom, wife, and teacher. I play the piano, trumpet, French horn, recorder (who doesn’t?), and at seventeen years old I wanted to be an opera singer more than anything. Then I saw how much competition there was, so I quickly decided against that career and figured being a therapist would fit better. When did you start writing? How do you write? (office, dining table, music playing, tv on, silence, middle of…

  • WIN A COPY OF ELEMENTS OF RETROFIT

    Well, release day is almost upon us, and I’m really excited for the world to meet Tom and Cooper.    Elements of Retrofit is a story of Gen X meets Gen Y – and neither of these men are prepared for what they find in the other.  Forty-four year old Thomas Elkin is the epitome of traditional architecture; strong foundations, defined by classic lines, sturdy.  Cooper Jones, on the other hand, is twenty-two, and the opposite of Tom. He’s modern, sleek, driven and demanding. They are also the perfect match.  The thing about a retrofit, is just how well the new blends with the already existing.  See how I didn’t…

  • Thomas Elkin 1 – Elements of Retrofit Excerpt

      EXCERPT CHAPTER ONE: Looking out of my office window over the darkening New York City skyline, I could see my reflection in the wall of glass before me. Beyond the expensive suit and shoes, there was grey hair at my temples, my once-black hair was now salt and pepper, and there were creases at the corners of my eyes. Forty-four years old. Forty-four. How did that happen? It seemed like I’d missed half of my life. In many ways I had. The light on the intercom flashed. “Mr Elkin?” My receptionist was fifteen years older than me and had been my receptionist for ten years, since the day I’d…

  • Lily G. Blunt guest post!

    Five minutes with Lily G Blunt Tell us about you. I live in sunny Northamptonshire in the UK with hubs and my two twenty-something “children”.  I taught in primary schools for over twenty-five years before discovering the wonderful world of m/m fiction. When did you start writing? Surprisingly, I discovered m/m novels through Twilight about four years ago. As a teacher, I never set out to become an author. Although I often had story ideas whirling around my head, I never wrote them down. But after reading slash Twilight fanfiction for a few months, I suddenly had an idea in the middle of the night, and wrote my first two…

  • Nagron + obsession = fanfic

    Yep, I wrote a fanfic. Given my obsession with Spartacus and Nagron, it was only ever a matter of time, really.  I thought I’d left the wonderful realms of fanfic, but apparently not.  During my I-think-I-broke-my-brain lapse – and my inability to focus on any of my WIP’s – I wrote a little story in the Spartacus world of Agron and Nasir. It was stress-free writing, but still allowing words to flow and for me to flex some muscles I’d thought long forgotten.  I think I could be ready to start on my other stories again… fingers crossed, anyway. The link to the story is  Remaining Days Blurb: At the…

  • Pitch by Will Parkinson

    I’d really love to welcome Will to my blog.  Will Parkinson is the real life man I named Blindside’s Will Parkinson after (he pestered me to write it until I gave in 😉 )  And he is very excited about his latest release, Pitch, and I’m honoured to have him here.  He’s here to tell you all about Pitch.  About Will… WILL PARKINSON believes that no matter what obstacles are thrown in the path of young love, it will always find a way to win in the end. He wants his characters to have their happily ever after, but that doesn’t mean that it’s going to come easily. None of…

  • Point of No Return

    Point of No Return has been re-released!!   I’m so excited about this. It was the first book I ever submitted for publication  (not my first release; Taxes and TARDIS was an anthology release and beat it to the table).  To say I was devastated when it was taken down would be an understatement… But Total E-Bound took it on, and it lives again!!  Here is the new cover… I’ve added about 9K to the story – a few extra scenes, but mostly adding depth to conversations, editing and fixing a few things I’d wish I’d done the first time around. Essentially the story remains the same.  You can buy…

  • Blindside is available now!

    Blindside – Mark’s story is live!! You can buy it at   Blindside at ARe Blindside at Smashwords Blindside at Amazon  Blindside is the third installment in the Blind Faith series. We met Mark in Blind Faith and Through These Eyes.

Hope you all love Mark and Will like I do <3  I need to thank some people for making it happen. Sara York for the amazing cover, Erika Orrick for the fabulous job she did editing (I exposed her to…

  • Blindside – Mark’s Story: Blind Faith 3

    I’ve been a bit of a blog fail, sorry. Real life has kind of buried me of late.  I have a beautiful cover for Blindside!!!  Made by the oh-so talented Sara York.    I’m hoping it will be released in the next few days. It is still with my editor at the moment, but as soon as I have it back, I’ll be uploading it to Amazon. Mark is a great character. He was fun to write. His mother is hilarious and possibly one of my favourite supporting characters I’ve written.  Mark’s mother, Susan Mark’s relationship with Will is a little complicated. They’re best friends, and Mark learnt with Carter,…
