It began with a Halloween themed short story assignment from a second grade teacher, and from then on, AJ Rose fell head over heels in love with writing.
Time has seen the beginning and end of many things, college and graduation, a finance career, and a marriage, and through it all, writing has been their first love. Now, AJ is also head over heels for their wife, fellow author Kate Aaron, who gets it, the twitchy fingers when word counts are low too many consecutive days, the thousand-yard stare when an idea turns AJ's vision inward, and the jitters when the word-babies go out to meet the world.
Nothing could stop the tall tales about imaginary people that refuse to be ignored. With a life full of this much passion, it's no wonder AJ chose romance. The voices in their head are mostly of the male persuasion, so m/m romance was an excellent fit. But don't be surprised if the occasional ghost still pops up.
*Tentative, very uninspired, extremely temporary title, until something much catchier hits me.
A while back, Kate Aaron and I came up with a series idea to co-write based on the feel-good type of movies my grandmother watches on the Hallmark Channel, but with more swearing and sex, because we’re honest with ourselves. We’re after the cozy feel and small town idealism, so a diverse group of people—not always straight, not always white, not always cis-gender or gender conforming—can get their HEAs too. Thanks to our schedules, I’m up to bat with the first installment, classified only by the pairing in what’s probably the most irritating temp title ever.
I’d like to introduce you to Grant and Marc, residents of Flaming, MO, a small town in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.

There’s been a lot of controversy the last week in the m/m world concerning authors who have Patreons set up. Patreon is basically a service artists (from all walks of life, like photographers, musicians, painters, filmmakers, models, you name it) can employ for fans who wish to support them in ways beyond buying their end Read more about Perchance to Patreon[…]
So it’s the week between Christmas and New Year’s, and I imagine a lot of people are still in family mode. The kids are breaking in their new shoes or figuring out their new electronics or draining the batteries on the new toys at record rates. The parents are probably looking around their houses and Read more about Intermission[…]
I think I’m done reeling from the election results. I might have my balance back. Now, I’m rolling up my sleeves and ready to fight. I’m ready to take on those who want to see immigrants and Muslims and People of Color and LGBTQ people shuffled out of their country, into dark corners, or into some other kind of oblivion. President Trump is the dying gasp of a white patriarchy who can’t handle otherness, and while it may feel like a hurricane force wind right now, I’ve got lungs, too, and I plan to scream back. I will be like Lieutenant Dan, on the mast of a small ship riding stormy waves, screaming into the wind and the rain, “Is that all you got! Come on! Bring it!” Read more about Restraint (Power Exchange Book 4) or How This Disastrous Election Won’t Stop Me
