I'm absolutely ecstatic to announce, my newest work, a novella titled FINDING A DREAM, has just gone live on MLR Press's website!  All my works are very special to me, and this one is no different, though it does carry a little uniqueness to it.  This is the story where my editor, Kris Jacen, and I are donating all our royalties from it to The Trevor Project, a non-profit organization that works to provide life-saving and life-affirming resources to LGBTQ youth.  It's YOU, those who purchase this story, who are providing the funds for the donation to happen, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

At the moment, it's only available at MLR Press, but in a couple weeks, it'll be branching out to all major ebook vendors.  It's already available in several formats at MLR to fit just about any eReader.  To purchase it at MLR Press, please CLICK HERE.

And for those who'd like to see them, here's the cover and blurb.

Bullied and harassed at school for his sexuality, Dillon Davis can’t see his life getting any better, but he can see it getting worse.  Depressed, wounded in spirit and body, he’s nearing a point of hopelessness, until he sees a picture of his favorite stage actor, Brandon Alexander, with his partner, Shunichi Miyamoto.  At learning Shunichi runs a karate dojo, a spark of hope comes to Dillon of learning to defend himself, and most of all, meeting Brandon.

Brandon Alexander is filled with compassion for Dillon the moment he meets him.  He knows all too well what it’s like to be scorned for being gay.  He and Shunichi want nothing more than to help him, but when Dillon never returns to the dojo, they fear what’s happened to him.


  1. Oh goodie. Something to tide me over til your next book comes out! Only problem is I need it in HTML or .rb so I'll have to wait for it to come out at another vender. Cann't wait! Happy Holidays! Cherry-in-OR

  2. Thank you for being willing to pick it up! I hope you'll like it! It's so sad, but I don't know much about formats for ebooks. MLR offers three different kinds, and I always get pdf for my Nook, and I know prc works with Kindle, but that's about it. I'm so tech challenged, lol! But this story should be branching out to other vendors in the next couple weeks or so :-)

  3. Just had to tell you That I just finished reading this and it was great! Only complant to short!LOL! Seriously LOVED IT! Thank you for this great read,It was so touching. Barb W. P.S Thanks for that little bit with Jess I love that boy!

  4. Thank you so much, Barb! I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed the story and that you thought it was touching. It means a lot to me :-) I'm glad you enjoyed seeing Jesse again, too! Right when I started working on the story, he let me know he wanted to make an appearance and I never can say no to him, lol!
