What Pride Means To Me

Step into the wayback machine with me for a moment. The year is 1995. It’s the middle of summer. I am sitting in a movie theater with my best friend, Jennie, and we are watching one of the most popular films of that year, Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. <I thought you were going to write about Pride, you say?

A preview of The Soul Cages

here is a short preview of The Soul Cages, my new queer paranormal romance novella. Jeremy noticed the guy with the glasses halfway through his second set. Actually, that wasn’t true.
