I write a lot of different kinds of stories. I’m a sensitive person and sometimes I think I feel things way more powerfully than is healthy. But from these thoughts and feelings some good stories can sometimes arise.
Painful Lessons came about when I was reminiscing about my college years. It’s interesting to me how dependent we are on other people’s opinions of us when we’re younger. I remember caring more what strangers thought of me than what I thought of me. That’s definitely not how a healthy person is made, but I think it’s so common in new adults.
When we’re young and looking desperately for validation we often find ourselves in relationships with people who aren’t exactly healthy, but for whatever reason they are feeding some insecurity in us.
Painful Lessons is about a college kid who just wants to be seen and loved. Unfortunately, sometimes that palpable need attracts the wrong kind of people who use that hunger for acceptance to manipulate and control.
Do you remember how you felt during your college years? Were you as big a mess as I was, or did you somehow manage to feel confident about yourself and your future?
Feel free to comment and leave me your stories, I love hearing about you too!

BLURB: As a freshman both in love and in college, sometimes there are painful lessons to be learned.
Excited to begin his first year of college, Brett Bridgeworth has just one problem: he sucks at math. Luckily there’s the sensual and mysterious math tutor, Jeremy Price, to help him out. It isn’t long before Jeremy is tutoring Brett in more than just pie charts, but it isn’t until they split up that Brett discovers Jeremy’s twisted, obsessive side.
Sam Hawthorne is two years ahead of Brett, and they share a strong mutual attraction. When Brett breaks it off with Jeremy and gets involved with Sam, disturbing things start happening. It soon becomes obvious that Jeremy isn’t willing to let Brett go without a fight.
S.C. Wynne started writing m/m in 2013 and did look back once. She wanted to say that because it seems everyone’s bio says they never looked back and, well S.C. Wynne is all about the joke. She loves writing m/m and her characters are usually a little jaded, funny and ultimately redeemed through love.
S.C loves red wine, margaritas and Seven and Seven’s. Yes, apparently S.C. Wynne is incredibly thirsty. S.C. Wynne loves the rain and should really live in Seattle but instead has landed in sunny, sunny, unbelievably sunny California. Writing is the best profession she could have chosen because S.C. is a little bit of a control freak. To sit in her pajamas all day and pound the keys of her laptop controlling the every thought and emotion of the characters she invents is a dream come true.
If you’d like to contact S.C. Wynne she is amusing herself on Facebook at all hours of the day or you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
