It's one hell of a journey to be a writer. You go through so many ups and downs, proud one moment, cringing the next. Does this connect with people? Do you laugh like I do when you read these lines? I dunno, I hope I can connect with people out there. That my stories mean something.

I started, as many writers do, delving into fan fiction. You'll see this steady ascent from video game fiction (very fun to write) to stories about boys.

I expect I'll dive through many genres in my life as a writer, but for now, I've just wanted to communicate the real: the everyday brilliance of people, friendships, the hilarious. I like this slice-of-life and the warmth of it. I write LGBT+ books because I didn't get those kinds of stories growing up, the kinds of stories I would love to have read. And as I grow as a writer, to make these stories even more meaningful.

Enter Clay's world in Finding the Pure Note to see an eighteen-year-old delinquent navigate his final school year, his music, friendship drama and his battle with drugs. Clay wants to lose all feelings, to forget. But he has two incredible friends willing to save him from the darkness.

Aiden is fifteen, autistic, and bitter about his loneliness. That is, until the enigmatic Ryder shows up and pulls him on many adventures, revealing their Wild Hearts.

When demons rule over angels, it is In Hell We Dance. Isaac is a dark, sensual beast. He is confronting and hopelessly lost. He manages to con the very rich, and very cute Connor into creating a carnal paradise. Or is it nightmare?

Journey to the snowy mountains of Canada, to a love story set in a boarding school. Oscar falls deeply in love with Nick Gutierrez, and finds his picturesque home in the walls of Mt Fierte, a world of Autumn Leaves.

Fletcher travels the world with his rockstar boyfriend, Clay (remember him?) and hopes to find his true purpose in a whirlwind world rapidly leaving him behind. To the Beat of My Heart in production now!

Happy reading peeps!
