When Jack ended up at college in a small town in the middle of the Iowa cornfields, September 1981, he figured it would at least be better than being home. He had no idea. Sean was on the opposite side of the town-and-gown divide, but attraction knows no boundaries. And when personal tragedy brought them together, it was the beginning of something extraordinary.

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

Wow thid really was a great story. Perfectly balanced between romantic love and sexual desiers. This was an amazing short story. I smiled the entire time. And just long enough to get everything you want out if a book. 120 pages long. Really good book.

This is the third story I've read from this author and I'm a big fan. Such a wonderful, albeit short, read..but we still get so much out of it. Wonderful!

What could be sexier than two gorgeous males enjoining the forbidden fruit of homosexuality. Delightful read.

The sign of a great book is when you wish there were more of it when it is done. This book fits that description! I want more!

Gay themed literature doesn't usually appeal to me. I've read so many cliche and unrealistic stories, that I didn't really think something like this book could exist. Like the Taste of Summer is a quick, enjoyable read that actually has some substance in a genre that's usually fluff. If anyone ever asked for an gay romance read, I'd honestly recommend this. My only complaint is that I didn't have the opportunity to pay for it.
