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

    more from this reviewer

    Recommended

    This is basically a good-old-fashioned M-M romantic suspense. I liked both Chris and Ian, and Chris definitely has some issues that kept things from getting boring on the personal level. On the suspense level, damn. This definitely went places I did not see coming, and there were actually a few different things going on that kept you on your toes. This could have been confusing or over the top, but it worked, and it made it impossible to guess where the plot twists would come from. Things wrapped up nicely without wrapping up perfectly (which drives me crazy sometimes), and I would love a short story follow up just to see more of Chris and Ian (or even Jenny and Becca!).

    Amazed

    I was on the fence about this love story between two men but it turned out to be a very good read. It was full of suspense and kept me wanting more.

    awesome book!

    This author has rapidly become my #1 favorite. ALL of his books have been PERFECT/OUTSTANDING! Highly recommend Kaje's books to anyone and everyone reading these reviews, trying to decide if his books are worth their money to purchase. I was blessed to come across a couple of his "FREE" books and i'm so thankful that he put those out there for us to sample his work or else I might not have ever discovered his phenominal work. Thanks, Kaje!!!

    Not my usual read

    I don't normally choose gay romance; however, i was surprised at how much i enjoyed this book. The characters were intrigueing, the plot got murky at times, but it was still a good read.

    I am not sure how I came across this book, but it has been a great read. The characters were great and the plot kept you guessing. There were times when I could not put it down. In my top reads. I had to get another book by this author this one was so good. I will keep you posted on it...great read.

    Excellent!

    I fully enjoyed this book. The characters were compelling, the story moved along briskly and was well-plotted, and the action -- all the action (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) -- was exceptionally well written. I will definitely be spending money on more books by this author.

    Riveting.

    Very well written. I loved it. I thought that the whole story was absolutely riveting. The erotic scenes were well placed in the plotline but didn't go into too much detail that it lost focus on the story like some other books i have read. I definately recommend this to any avid gay fiction reader. Simply the best i have encountered so far.
