Tell us a little about yourself!
Recently retired after twenty-seven years at my job to try working at home as a full-time writer and part-time business owner. So far it's going very well.
I am an avid reader of m/m romance.
I live in Milwaukee, WI with my husband, Paul, of (mumbles a big number) years of marriage.

In Thirty Things, Nate and Finn check of a list of 30 things to do before Finn turns 30. What would be on your list?
I'd like to travel the world and see countries like Ireland, England (because K.C. Wells lives there), Paris, and things that need to be experienced rather than seen in pictures.
I also want to write a good book. Maybe one day. ;)
Tell us about something you've already checked off your list. Was it everything you thought it would be?
I don't really have much of a bucket list. I'm not really a list kind of guy. There are some things I've done and really enjoyed - petting a stingray, riding a camel and elephant, meeting Cate Ashwood.
Every one of those things were better than I imagined they would be.
While traveling the country, Finn and Nate visit some amazing places. Where have you been that has stuck with you?
Iron River Michigan. Not because of a site, but because of an animal shelter. Paul, our friend Kenny, and I used to take day trips during our vacation. We'd just get in the car and go. Wherever we ended up, that was our destination.
One day it was Paul's turn to choose. We headed toward Green Bay Wisconsin and he saw a sign that said Iron Mountain Michigan. He'd never been there, so we went. Continued driving to a town called Crystal Falls. They had local cookbooks for sale, and a friend of mine is a cookbook fanatic, so we stopped to get one. Saw a sign that said their animal shelter was in desperate need of some items. So we bought them and took them there.
We've been friends with them for almost 12 years now.
If you could only do one of the things on your list, which would it be?
If I had to make a list, the only real thing on it would be travel. I don't much like to do it, but I really want to visit Ireland.
What items would be on your writing bucket list?
Write a book that hits #1 in the US on a list.
Oh, and a successful run with Pulp Friction 2015. I'm nervous as hell about writing with big names like Laura Harner, Lee Brazil, Havan Fellows, and Tom Webb (even though he's taking a limited role this year).
Which books are on your TBR Bucket List?
OMG, I think that if I could live as long as my TBR pile, I would be a happy camper. There are literally dozens of books on there I must read before I die, and I want to savor them.
LM Somerton has a new one coming out that I must read.
KC Wells has a new installment in the Collars and Cuffs series that will be a hit.
Cate Ashwood wrote a story about my favorite character from Keeping Sweets that is a MUST MUST MUST have for me.
My TBR pile has books on it that aren't even out yet. :)
Will's alter ego, Parker Williams had an amazing book, Protector of the Alpha out in November, and I've heard from a very good source, that the sequel is coming soon!
Adopted at an early age by a wealthy family, Jake Davis has always seemed to have an easy life. Even in college he was blessed with good grades and an apparently clear path to a pro football career. Good thing his best friend keeps hanging around to keep his head from getting too swollen.
Zakiya Incekara has always been...odd. Being fluent in six languages and having a flair for international cooking should open the world to him, but those skills leave him isolated.
When Jake sees Zak for the first time, with water beading down his slender form, something inside him shifts, and it hungers for Zak. To have him. To claim him. And Jake knows that whatever it is, it won’t be denied.
When they are approached by a man who claims knowledge of a secret past they share, Jake and Zak are thrust into a world they would never have believed existed. The forests of Alaska might seem an odd place to find your destiny, but these men will meet the challenges head on, as they learn that sometimes you have to make sacrifices to be Protector of the Alpha.
