I love gaining new skills and new knowledge, to the point where I have to keep myself firmly in check during book research or I will end … Continue reading

Endings are a tricky thing. Do you tie up all the loose ends? Do you leave a few hanging in the air and add some sequels? Do you leave the entire thing open and let readers decide what happens in the end? Or do you go with the dreaded cliffhanger? So many possibilities and so many stories to write!
In my case, when I start typing the story, I know the ending. Those of you who are … Continue reading

I wanted to write mm romances because I feel it’s a great genre to be in. To me it’s like a forbidden fruit and everybody loves a piece of forbidden fruit. (Even if they don’t want to admit it.) The military aspect came because for one I was in the military so I have a little, I won’t say a lot, experience with it. Plus I haven’t read that many … Continue reading
