Standing with #Ferguson and a call for Love

I have been admittedly quiet on the events in Ferguson.  Not because I’m not paying attention or because I’m not outraged, but I’ve had a bit on my emotional plate personally.  But here’s the thing, the world doesn’t change when we say nothing.  The fact is that love cannot remain silent. I am not Black.  I know this comes as a shock to many of you.  I am not Black.  I am the benefactor of truckloads of White Privilege.  I grew up in Northern Virginia, in the best school system in the country at the time.  I went to Smith College and graduated with no student loans.  I have never been treated by police anyway...

If You’re Craz...

If you are unlucky enough to be crazy like me (or whatever PC term people want to insert instead of crazy) then you know how important the people around you are.  You already know what a difference just one person can make when you’re staring into the void of your own mind.  My mind...

Prelude to a Kiss The world has no place for men like Jackson, no place for the kind of man his Grams raised him to be—for heroes or gentlemen. At least that’s what he believes. The scars radiating from his shoulder down his chest are the only physical manifestations of the damage he endured....

Women, M/M Romance and Ass Sex

There’s been a lot of chatter on the innernetting lately about women who write M/M Romance.  I’d like to make short order of that and then move onto bigger issues.  To say a woman can’t write gay romance is like saying men can’t write about fat teenage girls or women in the 1930s having sex with tigers.  But few people do. Instead, they applaud those authors’ skill, remark on how impressive it is that these authors can put themselves so completely into the hearts and stories of people so different from themselves.  God forbid we inferior women authors get any acclaim for such skill.  And then add on the fact...

Cloud Atlas, Post-Mo...

After watching the movie Cloud Atlas, I was blown away.  I didn’t quite “get it” but I saw through the stylized affect to something deeper.  After a second viewing, I decided I couldn’t take it anymore, couldn’t get the story or images out of my head and had to...
