Gavin Hernandez was my best friend. I never meant to make him the target of cyberbullying or for him to start avoiding me. We’re reuniting in Dallas, and I hope he’ll be my boyfriend.

I found the entire site both easy to navigate and a good resource for authors and readers. The webmasters generously included my diversity-themed scifi novels Degranon and Sons of Taldra on the page Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal Fiction, putting my work in the good company of many talented writers.

I'll post the season five premiere date when I see one. Killjoys runs on Space and SyFy. Also look for it on DVD or Netflix.

And read the opening chapter from Sons of Taldra:
Wednesday, April 17, 2019
Gavin Hernandez and Peter Montoya meet before high school. Gavin admires how Peter never complains about being gay or using a wheelchair. During their senior year, Gavin takes profile pictures of Peter in that chair, but the gesture of good will leads to online bullying and a painful final stretch of school. Best friends slowly drift apart.
After college, they reunite in Dallas as more than friends. Gavin now designs facilities for people with physical challenges. Peter looks for a job to match his business administration degree. The past might destroy their relationship, or their love might change their lives.
Contains bullying, threats, mild violence, and sexual references.
This gay romance short story will be available as an eBook in late 2019. I’m still revising it from the version that appeared online in 2018. Read a new draft of Part 1 at Wattpad.

BookBlogger reviews fantasy adventure with strong female lead: "YA fantasy needs more heroines like her."
"I loved Sasha. She was a fierce woman who took no crap from anyone and knew what she wanted. She wouldn't let anyone stop her, or get in her way. I think YA fantasy needs more heroines like her."
