Kell Hicklin & Scotty Cade

Scotty Cade (born February 8, 1960) hails from “The Big Easy,” none other than New Orleans Louisiana. He attended Louisiana State University and shortly after joining a high-tech, company in New Orleans was transferred to Atlanta Georgia where his career took off and ultimately landed him the position of Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Public Relations for an international payments processor. Georgia is where he met Kell Hicklin (born September 28, 1959), the love of his life. Ten years ago, after being in corporate America for over twenty-five years, Kell and Scotty gave up the rat race and bought a small hotel and restaurant on the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. From the beginning, they worked 24/7 building the business from the ground up and about four years into their venture, fighting burnout, hired a general manager to take over and took a year off to decompress. For the first time in their lives, with little to do but relax, Scotty finally had time to attempt a story that had been nagging at him for as long as he could remember…and that is how his first novel, Final Encore was born. It took a full year to write and once Scotty built up the nerve to submit it to a publisher, Dreamspinner Press picked it up almost immediately. He has not stopped writing since and after ten published novels, he is still going strong. 

Scotty and Kell had a commitment ceremony on December 31, 1998 and legally married on August 24, 2013.

Days of Love chronicles more than 700 LGBT couples throughout history, spanning 2000 years from Alexander the Great to the most recent winner of a Lambda Literary Award. Many of the contemporary couples share their stories on how they met and fell in love, as well as photos from when they married or of their families. Included are professional portraits by Robert Giard and Stathis Orphanos, paintings by John Singer Sargent and Giovanni Boldini, and photographs by Frances Benjamin Johnson, Arnold Genthe, and Carl Van Vechten among others. “It's wonderful. Laying it out chronologically is inspired, offering a solid GLBT history. I kept learning things. I love the decision to include couples broken by death. It makes clear how important love is, as well as showing what people have been through. The layout and photos look terrific.” Christopher Bram “I couldn’t resist clicking through every page. I never realized the scope of the book would cover centuries! I know that it will be hugely validating to young, newly-emerging LGBT kids and be reassured that they really can have a secure, respected place in the world as their futures unfold.” Howard Cruse “This international history-and-photo book, featuring 100s of detailed bios of some of the most forward-moving gay persons in history, is sure to be one of those bestsellers that gay folk will enjoy for years to come as reference and research that is filled with facts and fun.” Jack Fritscher
