Unlike some authors, I have no huge background in writing or philosophy. I'm not good at punctuation or spelling, and my thoughts often surpass my ability as an author to express them. However, I can't NOT write. It's who I am. When not writing, I'm thinking about writing and more than likely scribbling notes on old napkins in the car while playing "taxi driver" for my three children. I like ball pythons and my turtle (although over the winter was in the bathtub,) is now in a pond on my deck. I hope you are touched by my stories."

It's easy to become cynical when life never goes your way.
Cole Reid has been a social recluse since he was fifteen, when he was outed by his high school baseball team. Since then, his obsessive-compulsive behavior and sarcastic nature have driven away most of the population, and everyone else hates him because he's gay. As he sees it, he's bound to repulse any prospective friends, let alone boyfriends, so why bother?
By the time Cole enters college, he's become an anal-retentive loner-but it's not a problem until his roommate graduates and the housing department assigns Ellis Montgomery to move in with Cole. Ellis is messy, gorgeous, straight, and worst of all, a jock!
During a school year filled with frat buddies, camping expeditions, and meddling parents, Cole and Ellis develop a friendship that turns Cole's glass-half-empty outlook on its head. There must be more to Ellis than a fun-loving jock-and maybe Cole's reawakening libido has rekindled his hope for more than camaraderie.
