Spice of Life is a very short look at Colin and Brian, an established couple.  The premise is a simple one – Brian wants Colin to wear the butt plug he just bought.  A big stainless steel one with a “big, shiny cut-glass gemstone at the base end, which will be all that sticks out, looking like really fucked up jewelry.” Since Colin is “the growliest, manliest gay … Continue reading

It is no secret that I am a fan of pretty covers, and Battle of Hearts definitely has a pretty cover.  Besides that, however, is a great story.  Ms Heart does not write “soft” shifters.  Her shifter worlds are gritty, sometimes dark and often violent.  It is the case in this book.

There is a war happening between vamps and shifters, one that began with the killing of two young shifters by … Continue reading

Questions straight from the Heart (we are burning to know!)

  • What made you want to become an Author?
  • Positive feedback at a young age. My teacher in the 5th and 6th grade was the same man and he’s ended up being very influential in my life. He required us to keep a daily journal. He didn’t care what we wrote, as long as we wrote something. I got tired of writing about my daily life so I started making things up. He always had positive things to say about my narrative and my creativity. Anytime there was a creative writing … Continue reading
