Roar had mentioned, eyes fucking big round pits in his face, that he might have to be hospitalized,

Home for the Holidays: Excerpt

Three hours until Teddy and D planned to drop off Hope. Five hours until his parents were set to arrive. Rory stood in the pantry and tried very hard not to hyperventilate. “Honey? I was wondering where the—” Geo broke off. “I’m fine.” Okay, technically my voice is shaking and I’m staring at a bag of brown rice like it’s telling my fortune, but I’m fine, really. “Rory.” He closed his eyes, sensing Geo in the air behind him. “On your knees,” Geo said, very quietly. “We’re in the pantry. And there’s so much to do. I still haven’t finished

Close to Home: Excerpt

The waiting room was full. Maizy and Roar stood against the wall, looking around from a defensive corner position, so as not to step on any purses, coats, or babies. “What about that one?” Roar whispered—no, breathed—into her ear. She followed his gaze, but the guy looked like he’d just walked off the shoot of the Lumberjacks of the Great White North calendar. “Ew, Roar. Facial hair.” “Not the guy, the baby.” Maizy studied the baby, but babies all looked the same. “He looks…healthy?” “Are you calling that baby fat?” Roar whispered. One of the nearest moms glanced up at

Podcast #11: Close to Home is DONE

[ETA: Evidently this bad boy has spoilers. Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, but I have no idea for what, cause I'm not listening to it again. But consider yourselves warned! It's also very fucking goofy. Be warned about that, too.] A little unedited bit of me being giddy as hell. I never, ever feel this way at the end of a book. I'm marking this moment for posterity. httpv://youtu.be/AGytR3pEzPo

Home Free: Excerpt

Teddy Mariposa stood in his kitchen, unobtrusively eavesdropping on his guests. Well, technically only one of them was a guest. Everyone else was here for Family Dinner, which defaulted them to non-guest status. D took up the spot beside him at the counter. “This is like Family Dinner, Big Brother Edition,” she murmured. “Hey, Teddy, you’re with the CIA. Can’t you get someone to okay the wedding?” “Shh, I’m trying to hear this.” “Like a good spy.” He waited, because the very act of saying “shh” to D guaranteed she wasn’t actually going to stay quiet. “Anything so far?” Teddy

The End: Home Free

A quick note to say...the first draft of Home Free is complete. I'm exhausted, my wrists are sore, and I'm not entirely certain I ended it in the right place. Oh, okay, if I'm being honest--I'm never sure about my happy endings. I have no faith in them at all. But I'll give this a good thorough revision next week or the week after, then send it out for beta. (Are YOU interested in beta reading a romance novel with a trans main character and a character with a history of brutal sexual violence? No, there aren't any fucking flashbacks, and no,

Going Home: Excerpt

It is hereby declared that all people in this land are free and shall thenceforth be considered free forever more. The plaque—fake-bronze and not yet dusty—hung above the doorway of the large room. Rory couldn’t stop staring at it, even though he’d read it enough times for the words to have become meaningless symbols. Free forever more. Except not quite yet. The woman with the pad tapped her screen. “I know it’s difficult,” she said, like she was reading from a script. Or worse, probably: like she had it memorized. “Please be as honest as you can in describing your
