I wrote some novels! This is the City By the Bay trilogy.
Jamie Makepeace isn’t sure what to do with his work or his love life. Laid off at his job and at odds with his ultra-conservative boyfriend, Micah, he’s searching for something to fill the empty spots. When he meets Ben Gallagher, a cake decorator, Jamie knows he’s found a friend. Taking a chance, Jamie turns to art for his new career, and Ben becomes his muse. He creates an entire show based on the man who is always there for him. The problem with Ben is that he’s been hurt by love in the past, and might not be willing to risk his friendship with Jamie for something more. Can Ben get past his fear and see that all that Jamie has to offer before it’s too late?
In this follow up to Chiaroscuro, Dune Bellamy and Micah Ferguson have become best friends. Between Micah’s string of boyfriends and Dune’s lovers, they have plenty to talk about, especially when a trip to Europe leaves Micah alone, while back home, Dune’s first love turns up again. Micah returns home to an unhappy Dune, who’s trying to fend off his ex’s attentions. Micah has family problems to deal with, Dune has his ex stalking him, and the pressure soon comes between them, driving Dune back into the arms of the dangerous Gavin, who wants to control his every move.
Can Micah deal with his sisters and find a way to convince Dune that they deserve another chance? Something Beautiful is all about the family we chose, as well as the one we’re born with, and if they’re lucky, something beautiful will come of it for Micah and Dune.
Cartography for Beginners
At the age of fifty-one, Leo Bellamy has to do what he never expected: start over.
Leo has been mourning the end of his long-time relationship for over a year. It takes the death of a close friend to convince Leo that he doesn’t want to spend the rest of his life being bitter. It’s time to move on and find a love that will last. Leo accepts his friend Stuart Huntsman’s invitation to visit him in London, where Leo’s friends hope he will find a holiday romance that will kick start that “moving on” business.
Meantime, Stuart has been tentatively rebuilding his relationship with his estranged children. For twenty years Stuart thought his children were better off with him, and it’s a shock to learn they don’t feel the same way. Stuart doesn’t think he’s good for anyone — and certainly not for Leo, even if he and Leo call each other daily and Stuart is always a welcome guest in Leo’s home.
There’s no road map to true love and it’s easy to get lost along the way. But with patience and understanding, Stuart and Leo may find their way to each other.
