Once I recognized my passion for interesting characters and continuing storylines, an idea was born: What if I created my own continuing drama that consisted mainly of gay characters? I started to ponder the idea more and more, and in June 2013 I began writing my drama focused on gay characters, BOYSTOWN.
I am well aware that any depiction of human relationships in a novel cannot ignore the fact that sex, however described or disguised, is a primal motivating condition of our existence. Indeed, even if the act itself is not referred to in action or description, it is always there, however coded, and can't be ignored by reader or writer.
Last Sunday morning I laid in bed sipping hot coffee and gazing out my sun-streaked bedroom window. As I made my way to the bottom of my coffee mug, I thought about what makes some sexual experiences sexier than others. Sometimes it's the level of emotional intimacy. Sometimes it's the degree of novelty and risk. And sometimes it's just an exquisite blend of pheromones.
