Make no mistake life is full of challenges for all of us. Good people like us are out there looking for good people to make life better, more fun; more fulfilling. But there are bad people out there as well. Monsters don't always come with monster faces. I once had a friend who said, if there is a Devil he wouldn't be ugly, fierce-looking or frightening. He'd be exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately good people like us can become victims to the real monsters and devils of this world because we are trusting and loving and caring and full of hope. Traits that make humanity great, but the monsters see as weaknesses to exploit.

If you are the victim of abuse because of your trusting and hopeful nature, as we all can be, as I have been myself, do not waste time thinking things will get better, return to the same, or that you can change or compromise to make your abuser discontinue victimizing you. Just as it is your nature to trust, it is their nature to abuse that trust.

Leave. Do not be afraid of change. Learn to love and trust in yourself. There are other good people in the world. You will find them, or they will find you. Do not allow your precious life and good nature to be squandered by someone whose interests go no further than the person they worship.. themselves.

I was on deviant looking for cover photos for my upcoming m/m novel, and came across some of yours. When I read your profile, I was excited. To see someone so dedicated to bring a positive light to covers like this, that so many people look down on is amazing. Thank you for your beautiful art and mind!

I'm a (former) fellow St Louisan and I just finished reading "Memorizing You" this evening and I was overcome.  There were moments throughout that left me pondering and often weeping.  I posted a review on Amazon (B.D. Time Traveler).  My words can't fully convey how beautifully crafted I feel this piece is, but rest assured I'll be making it known to all who will listen how important a work I feel you've penned.  Thank you the gift that this novel most certainly is to the canon of gay fiction.  You are an incredibly insightful and talented author and I eagerly await your next endeavor.  Bill Daugherty (

I had to put you on my watch list, JUST for your "about" section. I'm not straight and it bothers me that almost nowhere can you find literature and art that portrays lesbians or gay men. It -really- bothers me. More than the hatred I get living in Texas, for being who I am--a pansexual pagan--more than the discrimination I've faced. People can kiss my ass, really, if they don't like me. But love is love, and just one bloody time I'd adore seeing the portrayal of that love, that tender lust, in a novel or a photograph. Also, I love your photography. I had to put you on my watch list!
