As a child, Gina (Storm Grant) read Peter Pan and mistook it for a how-to book, and so, following its tenets, she never grew up. Despite a degree in business management, Gina has retained her quirky sense of humor, which bleeds through in everything she writes.
Having read every book she could find by humorous writers such as Sir Terry Pratchett, Jasper Fforde, and Christopher Moore, she despaired over what to read next. So she decided to write what she wanted to read.
Gina is a board member of the Toronto chapter of the Romance Writers of America, a member of the Futuristic, Fantasy and Paranormal chapter and a founding member of the Rainbow Romance Writers chapter.
She lives in Toronto, Canada, just blocks from the house she grew up in. She’s married to a friendly curmudgeon from a mining town in Northern Ontario where he played hockey against Shania Twain’s brother. Together, Gina and Mr. Grumpy live with a miscellany of rescued pets all named for famous jazz musicians. Gina hates jazz, but enjoys baroque, and has been known to declare, “If it ain’t baroque, don’t fix it!”
Trapped outside the world, unlikely hero Thaddeus Wright must partner with sexy Secret Agent Peter Pan to save a new generation of Lost Boys.
Thaddeus Wright would love to forget his childhood. A bi-racial bastard orphaned at four, he was the very definition of sin, according to the strict and disapproving grandparents who raised him. Twenty years later, Thad works with at-risk youth as both coach and counselor. Even after his grandparent’s spare-the-rod, spoil-the-child parenting, Thad just wants to help people. But when three young boys he coaches go missing, he’s the prime suspect.
Especially when he goes missing himself!
That’s when paranormal policing agency Borderless Observers Org. (B.O.O.) sends in recent recruit Peter Batique on his first solo mission. Peter had another name once, but he’s all grown up now and looking to prove himself an adult and a capable agent. However, after a hundred years as an unruly boy in Neverland, growing up holds some pretty unique challenges for Peter.
Despite their differences, Thad and Peter must learn to work together to rescue a whole new generation of Lost Boys and take down the black market shadow dealer responsible.
Can Thad learn he’s worthy of love? Can Peter finally grow up? Can the Lost Boys be found?
LOST BOYS 2.0: A new adult, gay, contemporary paranormal adventure romance
Full-length novel, approx. 250 pages. Stands Alone: Yes
Sparks fly between virgin teenage demon hunters when the Chosen One turns out to be the Chosen . . . Two?
Apprentice warrior Blake St. Blake is the Chosen One, raised by an ancient order to defend the world against evil. Well, maybe not the whole world, but at least his neighborhood in downtown Detroit. When a dreaded reflux demon is sighted in a local cemetery, Blake is sent off to his very first battle, armed with his sword, his super-senses, his black leather duster, and a few well-rehearsed one-liners.
But another Chosen One gets in Blake’s way—an apprentice wizard named Shadow. While the boys argue about who’s the more chosen of the two, the demon escapes.
Blake wants to be angry, but it turns out he and Shadow have a lot in common. Besides, Shadow’s pretty cute, and Blake can’t help but think that the wizard’s skills (and hands and lips and other bits) might make the perfect complement to his. Blake and Shadow are brave enough to challenge the reflux demon in a second battle, but will they have the courage to tell each other how they feel? 43 pages
Deeply in debt to a loan shark, oversexed dentist Cary Drewel lives in fear of foreclosure and bodily harm. His new practice is missing one rather crucial element: patients. Which, terrifyingly enough, is the one thing his creditors also don’t have.
Pierce Sharpe, a powerful vampire with a drinking problem—or, more accurately, a problem drinking—can’t feed through the pain in his damaged eye teeth. In danger of losing his standing in the vampire community, Pierce seeks Cary's dental services. When Cary extracts his canines, Pierce must turn to other bodily fluids for sustenance.
Together, Cary and Pierce find a mutually pleasurable solution to both their problems. Turns out, though, there’s more to this dentist-patient relationship than simple suction, and what began with raw hunger from each of them might just end in love. 25 pages
