This is an excerpt from my upcoming gay romance release from MLR Press, OLD DOG, OLD TRICK!

Feeling romantic in retrospect, he might have called it Fate.

He had never been a man who believed that life’s path could turn on a pinpoint. He didn’t believe that some unseen force had any influence on where a person went, or with whom.

Lambert Porter Jr., Senior Partner, always considered the flow of time in terms of sweeping eras. That the great turning points of a person’s existence were those long stretches of experience and choice that slowly changed their idea of who they were and their place in the world. Epic sweeps that left no trace of the one left behind. Tides, not pirouettes. Not skips. Not tiny moments, decisions. Those, he believed, went up in smoke and were meant to be forgotten in the forward movement that built a successful man’s life.


Lam and Dale grew up together and fell in love on the California shore. Polar opposites, still they made a home together, and planned to spend the rest of their lives doing it. Then adulthood and separate dreams pulled them apart.

20 years later, their paths cross again. Can all the hurt of a lifetime of silence and pain be overcome to find that love again?

    1. Thank you! Lam is a very serious character. He thinks everything through, and plans every step of his life in intricate detail. Like many of us, he gets to be at a certain point in his life, and realizes that the plan hasn’t made him happy. We’ll see what happened between he and the love of his life in a bit.

    1. I’m thrilled that you like it! Thank you, Nancy. I have to admit, I love the characters and the premise of this story. It made me cry when I was writing it. LOL

    1. Thank you so much! I’m thrilled you like it! There was something about this story, almost like it wrote itself (I know, SO cliche!) Plus, I’ve rewritten it about 20 times.

    1. Thank you so much! Lam is a very complicated guy who over-thinks everything. Of course, he’s about to get a pleasant interruption in his life’s plan.
