LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings

A worldly snippet…

Happy Earth Day!

I searched Torque for something appropriate for either Earth Day or World Book Day–it wasn’t easy, but i found something. This is early in Chapter Two, from Scotty’s POV. Stick around after the snippet for news about a sale this weekend. 🙂


Mercy watched Mick’s dark blue VW as it chugged out of the lot. She was a gearhead through and through, always had been. When it disappeared into traffic she grinned and asked where Gramps was and how long he would be there. Walt was good and gone—out to lunch—so they went inside and Scotty bent her over his workbench. Nobody could’ve seen even if they came by, but nobody came by. Everyone was off eating lunch, nobody gave a rat’s ass what Scotty Bell and his best friend in the world got up to in that dark corner.

He was a gentleman so he got Mercy off first—which was really the only way to keep from getting a black eye along with a fuck, but Scotty didn’t mind.



Thanks for reading!

Have a lovely weekend!

Torque is on sale for $0.99 (mobi and epub) this weekend to celebrate World Book Day. The sale is only at PayHip because their $$-split is the most favorable, and authors get the money immediately. After the car accident i was in last month, a little quick $$ will help a lot.

Buy Torque at Payhip


Sometimes letting things get complicated is the best way to figure it all out.

Mick Randall is on the run, from the biker culture he grew up in and his impossible vision of love. Alaska should be far enough to escape his old life—until he rolls into a wrecking yard and gets lost in a pair of pale, bottle-green eyes.

Scotty Bell has spent years learning to channel his fiery temper into the heat of a welding torch. His sexual heat has always been slower to ignite, but one look at Mick rouses confusion alongside desire. In all his life, he’s only been attracted to one other person—his best friend, Mercy Taylor.

Mick lands a temporary job at the yard, and finds an uneasy crash pad at Scotty’s place, where the ragged ends of his emotions get tangled up in Scotty and Mercy’s relationship.

But when Mick hears a Harley engine from his past bearing down on him, his first instinct is to go back to the half-life he’d been living, lest his secrets destroy the only two people who’ve ever made him feel whole.

Warning: Contains references to abuse, subversive ideas about sexual identity and gender expression, and a free-range bisexual on a mission.

    Loved it. I particularly loved the last line. Sounds like a girl who knows what she wants and isn’t afriad to fight for it.

    I’ll bet Mercy gives a rat’s ass! 🙂 I like Scotty’s pragmatic approach.
