an interview with stepeh lovatt
Queer Voices / February 17, 2019

Religion is sometimes a very difficult topic to touch on if you’re queer. For me being gay and having faith was a struggle of the conscience. From one side of the spectrum I heard all the horrible things that will happen to me for being gay and not following the Church. I grew up believing that if I wanted to believe in God, I would have to give up being whom I am. Then, I found Stephen Lovatt, author of “Faithful to the Truth.” Communicating with him across the pond has been a life changing experience. Read full article here

Under the Lemon Tree – Relaunch
Buy Now / February 14, 2019

I succumbed to the pressures of my family and took it down. However, I realized that I am me, not them. So I am relaunching Under the Lemon Tree with new chapters. Available now on Amazon. Click on Image to purchase your copy. Under the Lemon Tree “Under the Lemon Tree” is written based on the ideas of family. It is a book of poetry that tells the story of the Lemontree family. This book shows different personalities that changed from good to bad, from heroes to villains. This is a story that almost everyone in the world can relate to because similar events happen in so many families. I have seen families torn apart by lies, cheating, stealing, and self-hate. This story is about seven beautiful sisters who ruin their family name and takes everyone through the most profound decline. Under the Lemon Tree shows the central point of seven sisters and one brother who were at one point loving and caring for their nephew, the protagonist of the story. He believed them to be divine. From childhood, he walked with them, followed them, and did whatever they did. They were like goddesses to him, because he believed they could…

My Brother’s Sins
Published Books / February 10, 2019

Detective Sebastian Saints thinks he’s falling in love with Angel. A man who is the prime suspect in the Sin Killings. His detective skills and his sexuality come into question. Can he find Angel’s twin brother, Miguel with the clues he leaves behind before he kills another Sinner? Is it possible to prove to Miguel that he won’t hurt Angel like the other Sinners have in the past? Will catching Miguel give Angel the much-needed closure he needs? “Hey, Angel. How about we go up to Mount Charleston for a while, tonight? You know before it gets hot.” Tony said. Mount Charleston? Is this idiot serious? “Yeah, sure. When?” “After dinner, silly.” Tony tapped Miguel’s shoulder. “You sure you feel okay. You don’t seem yourself.” “Yeah. I’m sure. We can get a few beers on the way there.” An hour later Miguel parked Tony’s car by the road at Mummy’s Mountain. The sky, full of stars unhindered by the new moon illuminating the scenery. “Too bad it’s not a Full Moon,” Miguel said. “No worries. The darker, the better.” Tony said with a hint of sexuality and took Miguel’s hand. “Come on, let’s sit at our spot.” Miguel took his…

Listen, Poems on being Gay, Bipolar, and Alive
Published Books / February 10, 2019

Listen Listen to me when I cry, I’m not asking for your opinion or advice, I’m asking for your shoulder where I can cry, I’m only asking for a little of your time. Listen to me when I am depressed, To yell at me “Get over it!” does not help me, I do not get sick at will. I did not choose to be ill, I’m asking for your understanding. Listen to me when I have fears and tears, To tell me: “It’s all in your head,” does not encourage me, Yes, it is in my head, that’s why it’s a mental illness, I have no control of these fears or shedding tears. Listen to me when I’m in agony, To tell me: “You want attention,” does not comfort me, I’m not five years old and don’t need you to scold me, I need you to comprehend my agonizing pain. Listen to me when I am depressed, I’m not asking for attention and it’s not always in my head, My illness is real. Real to me, I feel it every day, Why do you undermine my pain? Listen to me when I cry, It hurts me when you don’t listen…

Three and only 3
40 Gay and Dating / January 15, 2019

The Power of 3? So, yes I’ll admit. I’m a bit of a slut. Well, the male version of it. Anyway. I hooked up with this guy, and we spent hours together. We talked a bit, but mostly with each other and just enjoying life. Life was grand; here I thought I found someone that I would be comfortable with. Same insights, same likes and dislikes and all of that. I was a happy man. Then. After the third time we were together, I didn’t hear from him. What the f(&*( happened. Maybe he had a lot of work to do. Maybe he needed a break? Perhaps there was an emergency with his family? I don’t know. For all, I knew he was dead in a ditch being raped by a meth addict. Come to find out he got back in touch with me. He said that he was visiting Vegas for that week and had a lot of fun. Now he’s back home with his wife and kids somewhere in New York. Really? What the hell? Couldn’t he tell me this first? Let me know that I was going out with a married man? OMG. What is wrong with…

#1 of the Top 10 Gay Male Character Archetype – Straight Acting or Butch
Articles , Wkinut / September 3, 2018

Men by definition are masculine. The word masculine brings us images of a male human with square shoulders, a V torso, strong arms and legs and a very square jaw. A man. The Alpha Male. When we write male characters this is the image that is automatically imagined by readers. We then write about the color of hair, eyes, how handsome they look in a loincloth in a romance novel. How virile and strong they are in an action novel. There is no difficulty writing about a Straight Man. Read more at
