How Do You Like Your Men?

Since as long as I can remember a hairy chest some how represented manhood to me. As a kid I was fascinated with big hairy men (although I had no idea why I was so fascinated). I remember praying to God for a hairy chest. The things we do when we’re little, huh?

How about you? Do you like your men hairy….

…or smooth?

I made a life decision years and years ago that I would rather regret something that I did, than what I didn’t do. I was a young man who paid attention to those around him and what I saw were people with regrets regrets regrets. Regrets for opportunities missed. The things that they didn’t do and wish they had. Why one of those people inspired me to come out.

He was in his sixties, had only been out a short time, had been outed in fact, and lost his family in the process. This was terrible for him. But he did say that Continue reading


I think that I’ve discovered that the #1 thing that readers *HATE* in a romance novel is cheating.

I get that. I’ve been cheated on and It’s devastating.

What surprises me is the depths that this hatred goes and what readers consider cheating to be. For instance, character A is very promiscuous. In fact, he picks up character B for a one night stand. Turns out this turns into a 3 or 4 night stand. But he still thinks it’s just sex. Until he starts to fool around with character C.

How could he be a cheater?? A and B were not a couple!!

So l have a theory Continue reading


Name a movie or movies that “everybody” likes that you just *don’t.* You don’t have to make a post or tag anyone. You don’t have to explain. Just answer here.

I’ll start:
1) “West Side Story”: l do love the music. And Rita Moreno. *Hate* the movie! Am l still allowed to be gay?
2) “The Deer Hunter”: Horrible movie. And boring. The wedding went on forever. The ending is forever burned into my brain. I would have walked out, but l went with friends.
3) “To Kill a Mockingbird”: l admit Gregory Peck deserves all the accolades he has for his performance. But l thought the movie was endless. I cannot tell you how many times l checked the clock and wondered if the end would ever come! I was shocked when l found out how short it was….
