An “angry” little snippet…


Hello Snippetteers! I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!

For the rest of October I’ll be posting from my dark gay paranormal (with sex magic :)) The Visionary. It seems fitting, both because of Halloween and because soon the book will be going out of print. Probably for a long time. It’ll be cool to spend some time with these characters again before saying goodbye to them.

This is from late in the book, but I’m telling myself it’s not spoilery if I leave a lot out of the introduction. 🙂 So I won’t spoil anything, I’ll just add the blurb down below and leave it at that.


“You’re not angry?” Colin leapt to his feet and began to pace the office. He felt like a tiger in a cage. His skin crawled he was so angry. “How can you not be angry?”

“Of course I’m angry.” His father stood, and in the moment between sitting and standing, his demeanor changed. He wasn’t the father, proud of his son’s talent—he was a predator, blood splashed against the pristine white walls of his thoughts. “I’ll take her apart. But maybe not right now.”


Thanks for reading!

Colin Page, eighteen-year-old community college student, apple polisher and all-around goody-goody, has a secret. He sees things that aren’t there. Unfortunately, the Doc Martens on the floor of the mail vestibule in his apartment building really are there and attached to a dead body. Hunkered over the body is someone Colin had barely noticed before, Private Investigator Al Green. Most people scare Colin, but for some reason, Al doesn’t, even after he reveals that he knows about the hidden reality of their world.


Alonzo Green, despite his low-power mind, is determined to help right the wrongs he unknowingly contributed to. He’s also hopelessly smitten. He knows it’s wrong—probably even dangerous—to enlist Colin’s help with the investigation. And that’s before considering all Al has to fear from Colin’s fiercely protective and powerful mother.


Colin and Al put some of the pieces together, but as soon as one thing becomes clear, the picture changes. The search for the Big Bad takes them from Portland to Tacoma and Seattle, and eventually to San Francisco, but their journey into each other’s arms is much shorter.

    Glad I’m not the one such anger is directed at. Would hate to face that.
