Meet the Author

I read. I write. I talk too much and don't blog nearly as much as I should. And my muse consists of several voices in my head with a moody ringleader. Don't be scared of the voices. They mean well (most of the time). I write romance, erotic romance, fantasy, mainstream fiction and the rare spiritual fiction.

I received "The Strength of a Man" from the author through the Goodreads M/M Romance Group’s Don’t Buy My Love Program.  This story is told in third person through the eyes of Kurt Dennings and James Theard two students on their college swim team.  This is a longer version of the 2011’s Don’t Read in the Closet short story, "Starting Over". I didn’t read the short story so I can’t compare this version with the other, but can give my thoughts on this one. I really liked this. The characters Kurt and James seemed believable, although James seemed a tiny bit too perfect. I wish we could have seen him a bit more frustrated with having to wait for Kurt to heal from the trauma of having come out to his parents and his two bad past experiences with the men he was with. The experiences were so bad, he was afraid that James would leave him right after Kurt slept with him and that the experience would be terribly painful. I would say that James almost qualifies for sainthood, that’s probably my only complaint of this story is that he was a bit too perfect. I liked how Kurt’s family issue was resolved and his character growth in the story. The author did a good job with descriptions with not overdoing it or underdoing it. I found this to be a very enjoyable book and the angst was at a level that I could deal with, not to heavy, but just enough.  I give "The Strength of a Man" 5 stars
