I've been writing all my life, but professionally for half a century, with more than 200 published books and many shorter works. Publisher's Weekly credited me with "the master's touch in storytelling." I was born in Pennsylvania but the family moved to Ohio when I was a baby. I grew up in a small town there but lived most of my adult life in California, both Southern (The Los Angeles area) and northern (San Francisco) - but now I live and write in West Virginia's beautiful Blue Ridge.At age 75, I'm in a sort of semi-retirement, but still do the occasional story when ideas pop into my head - the most recent was Cooper's Hawk, available on Amazon, a bittersweet story of long time love. I'm presently working to get my backlist uploaded to Kindle and some of the books on audio.

I loved it, but I'd be very cautious about recommending this book because I don't think that it is what people are expecting after book #1 & #2 and because it is on the fringe of the romance genre, even if Tom's and Stanley's romance is still well alive. I don't know yet how the series will develo...

The least one can say is that I’m late at the party, since this book was published in 2009; and still, it rekindled my interest for the GFY trope. Or is it the closeted gay cop trope? To this day, I can’t decide if Tom is so deeply buried in the closet that he doesn’t even know he’s there, or if he...
