After I wrote AN INFATUATION, the first In My Heart bittersweet dreams novella from Dreamspinner Press, many readers and reviewers commented the … Continue reading

Hi Joe!! It’s so lovely to get to talk with you!

Right back at you, Lucy. Thanks for having me!

How did you start writing in the m/m genre?

Being “different,” I constantly played make-believe as a kid.

It occurred to me that acting and … Continue reading
