About the Author
Having successfully plunged into publishing gay fiction for a wider audience, my intention is to break the mold here and offer stories that are challenging, exciting, and driven by great characters. I aim to engage you. If you're reading this, I hope that means I've succeeded. My background lies in various professional writing fields and craft endeavors, all of which have enabled me to think differently about how I work, and what I create. Stay with me, because there's lots more to come, from full length novels to anthology pieces, and even a little poetry. Nicholas J. Finch

I recently re-read this book. I had intended to merely skim the text to refresh my memory to write this review but... Instead, I was drawn into the story once again. Wonderful characterization and story building make this a pleasing read. The characters Daniel and James are *real*. They have good days and bad, worries and joys - and they manage to share them even though physically they are separated by an ocean. The build is slow, moving from colleagues to friends to lovers in a progression that never seems rushed, but doesn't drag, either. "Conversations in Real Time" is about conversations - the "getting to know you" conversations we all have when you meet someone and the connection those conversations can bring. Reading "Conversations in Real Time" will make you laugh, cry and root for a happily ever after - and leave you with a smile.
This is an excellent book from a wonderful new author. Stories about long distance relationships can sometimes fall flat but this one never does. The various ways that the two main characters communicate keeps the relationship fresh. Filled with both drama and humor one cannot help but pull for the two of them to come together. This is definitely a story not to be missed.
