What's new? There's always something!
|Here are the latest novels, stories and other books that I've been publishing lately. I like to alternate between a variety of genres, from the cozy world of Steve and Rochester to the police procedurals of the Mahu Investigations. In between, I'm writing about George Clay, a gay private eye in Miami Beach in 1969, and a series of gay romances set in Victorian Britain.
I'm also branching out into translations. See my translation page for more information.
Steve Levitan and Lili Weinstock are on their way to the altar—but dognapping and murder get in the way.
Barrister’s clerk Silas Warner has been a sexual butterfly, flitting from man to man in Victorian London. Until he meets boxer Ezra Curiel, who delivers a knockout punch to Silas’s heart.
Scout Takes the Lead
Wounded Warrior Finds Love and Healing Through Man's Best Friend
A damaged guy, healed by his relationship with a dog.

But Alex's PTSD causes strains on their budding relationship. Can Scout take the lead in bringing them back together? This uplifting novella blends romance and the unbreakable human-canine bond.

Dog Rising (Golden Retriever short story)
A free golden retriever short story!
A production error meant that this story, which was supposed to appear in Black Cat Weekly, went out as a free issue.
Steve and Rochester are helping Rick out at an Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Stewart's Crossing PD when Rochester discovers an autographed baseball. Whose is it and how did it end up abandoned in this park?
The Art of the Deal (Angus Green short story)
Flakka, a crazy-making drug, is being distributed in Angus's neighborhood.
You can find it in Black Cat Weekly #74. Eventually I hope to put together an anthology of the Angus stories.
Black Cat Weekly is a great venue for mystery short stories. If you haven't checked it out, here's an opportunity for you.
|Black Cat Weekly #53
In the first three books of this series, FBI Special Agent Angus Green has demonstrated courage, intelligence and empathy. One of his core beliefs is the influence his late father has had on his life. But what if he learns that everything he believed about that important relationship might be false?
It's no secret that the relationships between fathers and sons are at the heart of many of my books. Angus Green lost his father at age ten, and the memories he holds of things like looking at an atlas with his dad have had a great impact on his life.
His new case involves a Cuban refugee who wants to trade knowledge of a stolen Old Master painting for his freedom. From the painting (a portrait I invented of Jesus as a boy with his earthly father) to the motivation of the bad guy, who seeks to outshine his father, to the secret that Angus's mother has been keeping for years.
I loved exploring this story and hope readers enjoy it too.
