When did you first call yourself a writer?
Good question. It took me a while. I think it finally sunk in when I had to pay taxes on royalties earned and list my occupation. I realized that if Uncle Sam thinks of me as a writer, it’s okay to call myself one. That said, I’ve been writing for 7 ½ years, and I still don’t feel like a writer.
Also, what do you love about writing gay erotic romance?
Well, first and foremost, I would say the readers. The loyalty in this genre is incredible. I’ve had many of the same readers since I penned my first story. It’s also a huge bonus that instead of just one sexy man, I get to write about two…or three…okay, sometimes four or five. I like men and it shows.
Sometimes it takes finding an opposite to show us the beauty within ourselves.
When security consultant and ex-mercenary, Gabrielo ‘Snake’ Barbas, thwarts an attack of one of his co-workers, Riley Banks, he takes it upon himself to keep the smaller man safe. His job is made harder when he discovers the attacker is actually Riley’s ex-boyfriend, a ruthless man from a very wealthy and powerful family.
After a night of passion, Snake decides to take Riley far away from Richmond, Virginia to a town in Wyoming for the annual Cattle Valley Days celebration. He should have known that sex with Riley wouldn’t be enough, but he feels he has nothing else to give such a nice guy. Riley is the sexiest man Snake’s ever taken to his bed despite Riley’s claim otherwise.
Riley knows he’s average-looking at best, so why does Snake continue to flatter him? It’s obvious he’s not going to kick Snake out of bed, even after Snake informs him that sex is all he has to give. Why does Snake see him so differently than the rest of the world?
While Riley is busy trying to figure out the man who touches him like no other has before, Snake is busy trying to protect him from a monster in a business suit.
Excerpt from Snake Charmer:
“Call the cops,” the hunk ordered.
Cal growled as he struggled to get away when Riley pulled out his phone. “Don’t you fucking dare!”
Cal warned Riley. “My people found you in less than a day. You put me back inside, and you’ll pay for it.”
The hunk slammed Cal against the car twice more, breaking Cal’s nose in the process. Riley heard the satisfying crunch as Cal roared in pain.
“Shut the fuck up,” the hunk demanded.
Riley’s thumb hovered over the keypad. The last time Cal had been sent to County for violating the restraining order, Riley had uprooted his entire life by moving and changing jobs. How many times would he have to do it before Cal left him alone? Sadly, Riley had a feeling Cal wouldn’t release him until he was dead.
“Do it,” the hunk growled, “before I deal with him my way.”
Taking a deep breath, Riley wondered if he shouldn’t let the hunk have Cal to do with what he pleased. Lord knew, Cal had never given a moment’s thought before hitting him, and with his family connections, even if he was sent back to jail, he wouldn’t be there long. “How would you deal with him?”
The hunk turned a pair of dark, forest green eyes on him. “The fact you’re asking that question tells me how afraid you are. What’d he do?”
“Which time?” Riley shook his head. “He keeps coming back.”
A murderous expression transformed the hunk’s face from sexy to scary. Shit. The last thing Riley wanted was to feel responsible for the hunk going to jail. He broke eye contact and concentrated on pushing the all-too-familiar three numbers into his phone.
