It’s finally September and although we probably still have two or three days of over one hundred-degree temperatures left here at home, I know this is the end of summer. For starters, I no longer have to search for a vacant treadmill at the gym now that all the kids are back in school! Just in the past week, night-time temperatures have dropped enough to now allow me to turn off the AC and sleep with my windows open. There is nothing better than that nice breeze coming through the window at night.
One of the things I love most about living in California are the mild temperatures during the change in seasons. In my current work in progress (WIP) this next novel takes place in Southern California. The lower region of California is home to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Hollywood, and miles and miles of great sandy beaches.
What could be more romantic than a walk on the beach with your man at your side? Well, maybe sipping on a morning cup of coffee with that same guy as you reflect together on your perfect date last night.
In honoring the great state of California, this month I am giving away one of Starbucks Been There Series collection coffee mugs featuring the state of California.

In Case You’re Wondering:
My latest release Escaping Camp Roosevelt is still doing very well. With the royalties from each sale of the book being donated to a great humanitarian cause, we will be able to truly make a difference in the lives of the LGBTQ homeless youth out there.
As much as the subject matter was difficult to write about, I’m glad I listened to that inner-voice and kept writing. Here is one of the latest reviews on the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars
Breathtakingly Moving Story
This loving story shows there is a light in life even when you can only see the darkness at the moment. Dancer is hurt from abuse and locks away his emotions due to fear of life. Tucker gives Dancer all of the love he has to offer. Pick this book up today, you will take an amazing journey with these men.
For everyone who takes the time to write and leave a review, I want you to know that it means the world to the author to hear from you. Writing is an amazing journey and I can’t thank everyone enough for your support. I wouldn’t want to do it without you!
