It wasn’t whatever i made a decision to put in writing since it was once scorching, it’s simply my global view. I additionally desired to write what my editor calls “fun homosexual fiction,” simply because, even supposing it’s an important and defining step, the arriving out event isn’t terrible for everyone—it definitely wasn’t for me. it truly is for plenty of, and that i are looking to comprise that during my paintings to boot. yet what approximately these childrens with enlightened and accepting mom and dad, with help and unconditional love? Don’t they deserve books they could relate to besides? i presumed so—hence, my present editorial course. I volunteer in a GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or wondering) formative years drop-in middle, and people young children, whom i like, are as diversified as any staff of adolescents you may come across.
