Meet the Author

I've been writing as long as I can remember (which is longer than I like to admit). I started creating M/M romances in high-school, filling binders with stories about what Starsky and Hutch really did on their days off. (Pretty PG-rated stuff - we're talking sheltered fourteen-year-old here. I was into the romantic possibilities.) Any potential writing career got side-tracked by forays into art, psychology, teaching, and a biomedical profession. And the challenges of raising children.


When I took up the keyboard again it was just for fun, writing books for my own entertainment. At about manuscript seven, my epically patient spouse told me that if I was going to spend that much time at it, I should try to get published. And he kept saying it, loudly, until I submitted one. And it was accepted! (Really exciting!) That's Life Lessons that was published May 2011 MLR Press. A short story, And to All a Good Night, that follows it is available here for free. The sequel, Breaking Cover, came out from MLR in late July. And I'm currently in the editing process for other work, including a werewolf novel, Unacceptable Risk.


My Smashwords book, Lies and Consequences, started as a kind of reaction after the November 2010 elections when the DADT repeal looked like it might be derailed. Then I was caught by surprise as I finished the book in December and the repeal passed. I tweaked it by upping the action, and deemphasizing the DADT subplot. The result was something lightweight, but hopefully fun. So I put it out as a free read. I hope you enjoy it. As a new author, I really appreciate reviews - what you liked and what you didn't. Remember those other six manuscripts? (Okay, nine now.) Maybe your comment will help turn the next good book into a better book. KH

    A new favorite author

    I love this follow-up and hope there is more to come with these two characters. The story doesn't have any guns or car chases, just two guys falling for each other and coming to terms with their mutual attraction. It even avoided the cliched sex scenes and just let me see two men coming together as a couple and not another hot sex scene after another.

    I really liked this Christmas time story. I have not read Life L

    I really liked this Christmas time story. I have not read Life Lessons which I understand comes before this story but even so, I could feel the way Mac and Tony cared for each other. This just made me know that I HAVE to read Life Lessons! Even though it will be out of order, so what.

    It made me sad that this couple could not be together for Christmas but that didn't seem too bad since they talked to each other on the phone so often. While Tony was in Florida for a family Christmas Mac was busy working a homicide case which he solved. He sure is good at his job.
