Dreaming in Color

WaterColors Book 2

Amazon May 22, 2021

Phil Alcorn is a vivacious artist who has lived a relatively lonely life. He has acquaintances by the hundreds, casual lovers and friends by the dozens, but very few who know his real story. His best friend has found the love of his life, and the two of them are traveling the world. While Phil is very happy for them, he misses Gabe. Especially since with his best friend gone Phil had a lot more time to think about the man who'd opened his eyes to a new and terrifying world one winter.

Will Archer has spent his adolescent and adult life training and competing for the United States at the highest level across the world, but his mind frequently finds itself drifting toward the Californian coast where Phil lives and works amidst the hills and fog of San Francisco.

The two men have enjoyed a casual arrangement for the past two years, but while each of them sense the possibility of a deeper connection there is a real fear that if they change the rules then the very thing that connects them will disappear. Not to mention Phil's certainty that there is no such thing as 'happily ever after' between two people, and Will's listed address on the opposite side of the country. Will the pair be able to blend their hectic schedules and desires to create a masterpiece all their own, or will their fears and obstacles drown any chance they have at happiness?

The Heart of Texas

Windows in the Mist Book 2

Pride Publishing July 23, 2019

Surviving is only the first step.

Javier Alde thought he had his life all figured out. He moved back to the city of his birth, found a great job and rebuilt some friendships…if only his love life followed suit.

None of that matters anymore when he’s abducted and imprisoned for several months. Upon his escape, he finds that surviving is only the first step.

Malaki Taupo is slowly putting down roots in Dallas after working for several years as a traveling physical therapist when he finds out that one of his patients is the abducted therapist whose place Malaki took at the rehab center.

The physical scars and injuries Javier sustained tell a story of torture that should have broken any reasonable person, but within Javier’s gaze, Malaki sees the strength and determination to take back his life—and he’s drawn to the capacity to love within Javier’s heart.

But navigating the perils of building a relationship is complicated. While Javier’s lost the ability to trust himself, there’s something about Malaki Taupo that stirs an ache inside him that’s altogether different from the physical pain of rebuilding his body.

Together they go on the journey of discovering who they are as men…and who they could be to each other.

Shards in the Sun Book 1

Pride Publishing Febuary 14, 2017

Brandon Blackstun has spent the last decade moving on from the hellish halls of high school. With an invitation to his reunion in hand, he plans to show his former classmates that not only did the repeated occurrences of being slammed into lockers not cause brain damage, but he's now a successful cover artist for the very books they buy off the shelves.

Tyler Synder was determined not to follow in his father's footsteps as head of the international corporation that bears the family name. Instead, his heart is tied to the beat of his horses' thundering hooves. He operates a breeding program for Tennessee Walkers and a guest ranch a couple of hours from the urban luxury of Dallas where he was raised.

The two men might live very different lives, but the heat between them is hotter than any Texas sun. With the help-or meddling-of an unlikely pair of friends, the two explore a relationship that stirs something deep inside them. Distance and misunderstandings force Tyler and Brandon to consider whether the fulfillment they've experienced in each other's arms is worth the sacrifice of the lives they've built individually.

Texas may be the second biggest state in the union, but is it large enough to embrace the love between these two men, or will their deeply hidden fears shatter the boundaries of their hearts?
