Here's a link to the video trailer for Boughs of Evergreen, a holiday anthology in support of The Trevor Project.

It's 17 minutes, but I promise it's worth your time, and I sincerely hope you'll purchase at least one copy of this book (it makes a WONDERFUL holiday gift) to lend your support to our leading charity providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning young people ages 13-24.

Turnabout - Cover Reveal!!!

I've been DYING to show off the cover for my soon-to-be-released short.

Just got the okay---along with a "pre-announcement" from the publisher:


Keep an eye out for the Kickass Anthology---yes that's the title---which is coming out on Thanksgiving.

It's a benefit for Eric and Tj.   Bunch of us got together, and it's even illustrated!

I'd like to thank all the volunteers for writing, drawing, editing, and doing all the behind the scenes work.

Stay tuned for more details!


I'd like to give a nod to the astonishingly talented artist, Taomi, who created this fabulous painting for everyone's enjoyment! 

"Taomi" begins with the Tao, has the Om in the middle...and "I" comes last.

Taomi is Love in a seventy-year-old body. She lives happily with her two cats on a trail near a peaceful river, making music, singing, painting, and dancing in the moonlight.

Thanks for reading!
Raising Cade is a gay romance and includes brief, but graphic depictions of sex, violence, rape, and PTSD. Readers who object to content of this nature should not download this book.

What readers are saying about Raising Cade:

This is a story with depth and real concerns. It is not light and fluffy, but a coming-of-age, in my opinion—second chances, if you are willing to try for them.
I feel that our couple were meant to be together. It wasn't instant, for sure, but that just made them stronger in the end. The story is about the two of them balancing one another out, helping each other become stronger. They are each other’s anchor in the world they both live in now.
You could see the growth from within as Cade comes to terms with what happened to him, and the life he wants to share with Alan. Maybe we will be lucky and be graced with more of their story…

When I finished reading this last night, I gave it 3-1/2 stars. However, I awoke this morning not only remembering the characters and the details of their lives, but still curious to get to know them and their friends better. In light of that fact, I had to bump it up that extra half star to a 4.
I really enjoyed getting to know both Alan, a purple heart bearing Marine and poor, sweet Cade. I look forward to continuing to get to know them and their friends. Though this is apparently a first foray into publishing, Raising Cade doesn't “feel like” an author who is only beginning.
—Pati, Goodreads

There are simply not enough stars to rate this the way I would like. Few books touch me as thoroughly. Cade and Alan are characters that will stay with me forever. This rarely happens.
They are both very compelling and easily liked. There is a small cast of secondary characters as well… Cade and Alan though, oh my God, they practically lifted off the page to stand in my living room. They are as real to me as any physical person I have met.
Jonathan has created beauty, and I do so hope he expands on this story.
