This blog is owned/operated by an author.  I make no secret about that, I’ve never hidden that.  I’ve also never understood the fear by some authors of having their work read/reviewed by another author.  Why?  I welcome having other authors read my work.   To have my work viewed through the mind of other writers is an honor, just like it is when actors view/comment on other actors’ work, or when musicians listen to/comment on other musicians work.  Art is art and it should be viewed by all, whether you’re in the same field, a different field or just enjoy art.

Write, read, feel, dream.  That’s my motto.

Am I a reader? Absolutely – it’s my passion, my escape, my joy
Am I a writer? Without a doubt. The characters in my head are constantly demanding that their story be told.
But above all that – I am a human being. My passion for people is unparalleled, my firm belief in Love is Love unwavering, my hope that all can be accepted, undying. I do not write because I want to, I do it because I HAVE to, because these voices, these beautiful men have chosen me to tell their stories.
