LGBTQIA+ fiction with happy endings

A Happy #TransAwarenessWeek snippet…


Hi all! In honor of Trans Awareness Week I’m sharing from Torque today—my bi/ace/trans poly love story (that earned an Honorable Mention in this year’s Rainbow Awards!).

In this scene, Mick and Mercy are having a beer together. The first line is Mick’s.


“Don’t you run parts?”

“That is the least interesting thing about me.” Mercy winked.

“I’m sure that’s true.” Mick took a quick gulp of beer to mask his surprise. He hadn’t meant to give himself away like that.



Thanks for reading!

    Sometimes the mouth reveals what’s in the heart.

    And congrats on making the Honorable Mentions at the Rainbow Awards.

    I love Torque! I read it a couple of months back, and it’s so wonderfully…hmm…like gritty oily engine parts. I enjoyed Mercy a lot, but Mick is definitely my favourite character.

    ooops, Mick, bet that slip works out for you.

    Mick, smothering your surprise isn’t going to um, surprise anyone. Things are going there like it or not, at least they will eventually, I’d wager.

    LOL. No poker face on Mick, then?
