MASKED IDENTITIES

Brooke thought she had read every book in Grandad's collection of fiction until she stumbles upon an unfamiliar title. Curious, she delves into the book, realizing her relationship with her boyfriend of four years parallels the story she is reading of Ezra and Christian. Can a Victorian tale of forbidden love between two men provide the answers to salvage her floundering relationship?

 

This unusual story is a period tale wrapped inside of a contemporary storyline. The interior tale follows the relationship of two men in 1890 Victorian London, the outer story follows Brooke and Chase in upstate New York in a present-day setting. The manuscript crosses genre-specific lines; gay/hetero and period/contemporary. Definitely not a traditional run-of-the-mill read, but a journey into alternative fiction. (novella)

Rated: MODERATE - (PG/PG 13) implied sex & intimacy.

Available at these fine retailers:

CLIPPED WINGS

Releasing March 4, 2021

Teenage years aren't easy,

especially when the world is out to get you!

Shane reveals a poignant coming-of-age narrative of growing up in ultra-conservative, north Oklahoma in the early 1970s, told entirely from Shane’s teenage perspective. From triumphs to disappointments, his story unravels a tapestry of secrets and lies, exposing deeply hidden skeletons in closets that should never see the light of day. A true, honest-to-goodness southern fictional tale, inspired by actual events.

 

Small town secrets lead to a roller-coaster read.

Clipped Wings is the first novel of the Shane Davison Chronicles series in which Shane shares his life experiences. From childhood through adulthood, he shows the similarities and challenges he faces as an out, gay man in a predominately straight world. No matter, if you are gay, bi, straight, or anything in between, you will certainly relate to his experiences. Maybe not the identical experiences, but those that are similar. As Shane demonstrates, all of us live on the same earth and share many related challenges, triumphs, and obstacles as we forge through the journey we call life.

BLURRED LINES

WORKING TITLE

Teenage years aren't easy,

especially when the world is out to get you!

 

The hand squeezing mine back is comforting. Over and over I've dreamt of this moment but never imagined it under such shitty conditions. If circumstances were different I'd be enjoying this very moment. But right now, I'm on the run. I gotta get away from them. They're out to get me.

 

Shit. They want me dead.

 

I don't know how this happened. Did I create them or is all of this just a fucked-up coincidence? Whatever it is, it's now a race of time. I gotta figure outta way to destroy them before they find me—or I'm a dead son-ova-bitch.

 

Am I going crazy? Is any of this real? I've no frickin' idea what to think anymore. My entire life is goin' to shit. I'm runnin' away—but to where? I can't think about what's to come—there's no time to make plans. I'm living moment to moment. The only thing on my mind right now is gettin' the hell outta here.

 

I'm literally runnin' for my goddamn life.
