I like to read books that deal with issues I can relate to, tackling the big as well as the mundane questions facing humanity and particularly the LGBT community today, from parenting, family relationships, love, loss, but also difficult subjects like our environment, trafficking, child abuse, racism, global warming, aging etc.
I like to read books that deal with issues I can relate to, big as well as small. I’ve always preferred books that end on a positive, hopeful note, providing closure of sorts. I write the kind of book I like to read, a book that makes me think, a book that takes sides, leaves me in tears, makes me laugh, and that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside when I’m done; or simply put, I write stories you’ll remember.
Before you dash off to your next destination online, please feel free to have a look around.

My latest blog post:
Silent Terrorism is like Ms. Novak’s My Name is Ayla, an important book in today’s world. The LGBT community needs dissenting voices, and while we are grateful for stories with happy endings, stories with fluff and rosy cheeks, we also need the world to know that yes, there are still 76 countries where being LGBT is illegal, 13 countries where being LGBT carries the death sentence, and the het majority needs to hear this side of the story, too, not just about out and proud gay athletes and actors marrying their sweethearts.
