With his easy laugh and knowing eyes, Jell grew up street, while I was raised to be a pillar of society. When the FBI asked me to betray him—the guy I've crushed on since ninth grade, I went straight to Jell. So we have one less secret between us. Which would be great if we didn't have to escape a psychiatric clinic in the middle of the night, half naked, with people shooting at us. The only refuge we can agree to head for is my crazy cousin Gator's retirement village.
Now we're lost. We're cold. And I've never been so alive.
I visited at Sarah Ballance's Blog on July 10 to discuss the first WOCA anthology, A Light In The Darkness, and my short story, "Exit, Horatio."
Guest post at Guys Like Romance Too.
Here's a recent interview by Savannah Chase.
I blogged. Don't faint. I do blog, once in a long while.
WHO ARE YOU? Why are you here reading this? Drop me a line at my gmail account, shapeshiftersinlust.
My story "Exit, Horatio" is now out in the fundraising anthology A Light In The Darkness. Living well might be the best revenge, but retribution requires direct action.
People who take their shots and do as they're told have nothing to fear, right?
The Rabies Z epidemic began and ended in Miami this past summer, didn't it? And that guy my daddy saw at the Jacksonville airport last week was just having an epileptic fit. No cause for alarm. Epilepsy always causes an eighteen-hour hazmat shutdown at a major airport.
So while my twin tours to flog her newest album, here I am, Camie Invisible, parked at this nice, safe college—as far as I can get from the infection and still pay in-state tuition. Only now, my studies have become focused on the fascinating Risa Ruiz. And she has eyes for me.
Isn't this the perfect time for the z-things to show up?

Zarak abandoned that Warrior Code crap long ago. Oscar personifies it. In a war-scarred land, two men fight for justice, honor, and who gets top.
Transplanted from an Afghani battleground to a Florida playground at age ten, Zarak Momand spent the next several years trying to remember Pakhtunwali, the Pakhtun Way, and instill the Pakhtun warrior spirit in his younger brothers. A generation later, he’s a burned-out Navy hospital corpsman who has lost touch with everything that matters: his brothers, his heritage, and possibly his soul.
Then he is kidnapped by USMC scout-snipers hell-bent on justice for a murdered brother marine. The murderer has deserted. They have ideas where to find him and plenty of unofficial support–but this is Afghanistan, where the easy answers are wrong and the best-laid plans don’t stand a chance. Codenamed Zulu, Zarak navigates the ambiguities of fourth generation warfare, where there are no front lines and where the moral high ground shifts without notice. He can rely on no one but Oscar, a sexually compelling marine who is every bit the warrior young Zarak had once hoped to be. But is Oscar’s rough passion a betrayal between brothers? And what happens when their target would rather die than go back?
Khyber Run (the paperback) is now available on Amazon.

KT is back, in Turner & Turner 2: Turncoat.
Nine months ago, Ken Turner and his lover, FBI agent Turner "Turn" Scott, handed in enough evidence to bring federal charges against KT's stepfather, but Father escaped to Mexico. When Mexicans kidnap Turn, KT desperately smuggles himself across the country to seek help from a man out of Turn's past. A man whose photo Turn still cherishes. A man who, KT finds, has crossed the border and now contends with KT's stepfather and other drug lords for leadership of their cartel.
To survive, the drug lords must know which parts of their networks have been compromised. Turner Scott has that information. One of the drug lords has Turn. Another has KT. The third knows KT might be Turner Scott's only weakness.
But Turn himself doesn't know whether his hunger for justice is stronger than his taboo love for KT.
Summoned to his parents' estate, brash young Kendall Turner steels himself for yet another confrontation. He doesn't expect this level of betrayal, though. His parents play an explicit and humiliating video surreptitiously recorded by KT's ex, who has taken up blackmail. KT is ordered to report to a psychiatric facility while his family scrambles to brush the dust back under the carpet.
He flees instead, accompanied by Turner Scott, heavily muscled star of his most personal fantasies. Only the flight turns into more of a kidnapping when Turn needs to buy time for his own mysterious activities.
When his ex turns up dead, then missing, then most definitely dead, Kendall feels a trap closing in--and all clues that don't point to him point to his protector, Turner Scott.

The Huntsmen: BACKTRACK takes place in 1984.
Remember 1984? Big hair? Commodore 64 and self-correcting typewriters? Huntsmen overwhelmed with the progeny of the freewheeling seventies?
Yeah, that 1984.
Three years ago, Sugar made the mistake of volunteering to testify against a drug lord, Glenn Digger. Now she's on the run, her kid is in foster care, and the guy she has the hots for is supposedly only seventeen. When she finds out Cassio is no overgrown teenager, she wants one bed-busting, rollicking screw before she moves on to the next anonymous city, the next fake name. Cassio comes in a double helping? Bring it on!
Fort is weighed down with responsibility. Only 22, he and his twin Cassio are raising six pairs of younger brothers, nephews, and cousins. As a huntsman, Fort needs good and frequent sex in order to maintain his humanity. He's not charming, though, so he leaves all that falling-in-love nonsense to his twin.
But this time Cassio falling in love has nothing to do with heartfelt sighs or bad poetry, and everything to do with finding out who this woman really is, and why she's using a false identity.
Sugar enchants Fort, makes him feel playful--but he can't afford to clown. When he learns Sugar's secret, he has to help. Because her young son isn't hidden any more--Digger has him.
Sugar knows that even if the twin detectives rescue her kid today, she will always be running, always be hiding, so long as Digger's alive. And she knows one more thing: she's damned tired of running.
The Blood Lust anthology includes More Than Memories, a story of the living stones. Dick is an ass. Harry's anal. Obviously, they're made for one another. But scruples, and an unscrupulous vampire, come between them. What's a ghost with a geek-fetish to do?
One week Tyler is signing the deal of her life and in sight of her first million. The next week, she's on the run for her life--a pawn in a world of high-profit body parts. But she's still The Tyler, queen of game designers, and just the person to turn the tables...given any chance at all.Long ago, Esau devoted his entire being to the welfare of his pack. But now he's found a woman who needs him fully alive--fully alpha. Pack duty requires him to track her down and deliver her to her enemies. He can't. But to save her, he must give up everything he thought he had, and become more than he ever thought he could be.
MA thought she was human. Darien thought she'd readily adapt to the shapeshifters' world. Lia thought she could be controlled.
They were all wrong.
Shapeshifters Darien Berenov and Mary Alison Hawkmoor were bonded to one another as small children. Then Mary Alison disappeared, an orphan in the human world, and grew up treating her full-moon "hallucinations" as mental illness. Darien took her place as Hawkmoor, growing up as a prince among the shapeshifters and using the Hawkmoor name to keep the peace.
When Mary Alison surfaces, Darien's authority reverts to her. Exploiting the erotic aspects of their awakened bond, he seeks to form a union of souls and to resume his rule in her name. Mary Alison defies him. War explodes as Families vie for territory and position. With people dying and the moon swelling toward full, Darien chooses among ugly options: he must bring his mate under control, or he must sacrifice her for the sake of peace.
