Current Release: Straight Shooter

Describe your current release by starting out with "In a world".

In a world where competitive men's hockey includes a hefty dose of homophobic trash talking, Austin Puett is a hockey player with a very dangerous fetish: trashtalking turns him on. His fear at being discovered has him mistreating his gay friends and desperately searching for a cure. Enter professional Dominant and porn star Puck, who with luck will be able to dominate and humiliate the perversion right out of Austin . . . or teach him to love and accept himself and others, all while embracing his fetish.

What are you working on?

I'm working on a trans M/M with a fluffy contemporary feel. Opposites attract, and a run down B&B!

Getting a book to market often takes a village. Who has helped you on the way?

Oh man. My editors, of course. My beta readers. My husband and mother, who take over the lion's share of parenting my daughter when my deadlines start looming.

Do you have a favorite or interesting reader meet moment?

Well, when I'm not writing comedic contemporaries, I write the super dark thriller series The Flesh Cartel with Rachel Haimowitz. Whenever I meet a reader of that, there's almost immediately this moment of "YOU wrote THAT!?" I'm pretty bubbly and sweet in person so nobody expects something so dark and violent to come from me. That reaction never gets old.

What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

Twitter. Hours upon hours of twitter. Or if twitter's not distracting enough, baking.
