A huge protest rally in London brings together the opposing sides of a fierce debate raging over the future of the last remaining trees left standing on UK soil. Lowden and Dresden sit on opposite sides of the fence. A catastrophe leaves Lowden injured and with no choice but to accept Dresden's help. Can compassion heal the divide? Can love blossom in the wilderness?
A quirky m/m romance that was originally conceived after a neighbour asked me why some trees at the edge of my property had been felled. The reason was to bring the sunshine into the space where the solar panels were being installed - cutting down trees to make way for solar panels? I liked the sound of the clash of ideologies and it gave rise to the story.
I should say that the trees which were felled were extremely close to the cottage, and they blocked out all of the light in the yard and in the garden - so we had them cut down to give the crops a chance, and to generate enough electricity to light the cottage and power the laptop. From memory, there were seventeen - in a forest of half a billion. Some of the felled wood was used for fuel to heat the cottage, some was used to repair the barn and some was used to make shelving for the shed and for the cellar.
Needless to say, we planted considerably more than seventeen seedlings as part of our on-going forestry management efforts.

About the Author
I'm English by birth, from the Isle of Wight, living in Newport, spending part of the year in France, in the stunningly beautiful department of Haute-Saône in the Franche Comté region. It is heavily forested and very tranquil but the winters are pretty harsh and my home is 820 metres above sea level so I get plenty of snow. I am also spending increasing amounts of time in the USA, co-managing The Carter Seagrove Project LLC - an independent publishing house, incorporated in the State of Indiana. I will be 50 years old in 2015. I only started writing in 2009, proving, I suppose, that it is never too late. I didn't think about self-publishing until late 2012, now, more than two years later, I'm even more energized by the process than ever before. I'm a qualified English teacher, specializing in teaching English as a second language (TEFL), though I don't do much of that now. In the distant past, I taught software skills. In the very distant past, I was a project manager on big IT projects and at the very beginning of my career, I was an Internal Auditor. I have degrees in "Internal Auditing", "Computer Auditing" and "Project Management". I'm studying for my degree in Sustainable Development at the moment. Renewable energy is what really interests me and I generate my own power at home via a solar panel. I'm a member of The Society of Authors, The Society for Editors and Proofreaders, and The Independent Author Network. I grow some of my own food, and from Easter to the end of October, I'm outside for the largest part of the day, tending the garden. I write in the evening and during the winter when there is very little else to do. I have no great philosophy except "energy follows intention" and "honour your gifts". These two principles keep me sane, very happy and exceedingly busy! I am always very happy to receive your feedback.
