GayRomLit Retreat: Lori Toland

Starting from March up until September I will feature authors attending the GayRomLit Retreat in Chicago (October 16-19, 2014: http://gayromlit.com/grl-authors).

Today author is Lori Toland:
My name is Lori Toland and I’ve been spinning stories from a young age. I’ve always loved writing but when I was young, my mind always went faster than my fingers could so I grew frustrated fast. As my typing skills grew, I kept trying to come back and once upon a time, it took a while for my computer to catch up with what I was typing (good old days of Windows 3.1). With a passion for romance from a young age, I wrote my first YA story at 13 and kept going from there.
My first novel was published in 2010, a long journey finally complete, just like the story. I love watching the romance develop, from the first kiss to the first date, and the the first look to the first time they realize this is the person they can’t live without. And all the sex and lovemaking in between too. *smile*
I live in Orlando now, although I’ve moved around like a nomad for years. I’ve lived in the history and culture rich D. C., tried to survive in the wilds of Las Vegas before moving east to my family roots of Dallas, and even a stint in New York City.
Most of my life has been where I’ve been in the right place at the right time, including meeting my best friend, my hero for life, my husband. He’s the reason I believe there is someone out there for everyone. We live a quiet life in Orlando, with our cat, a beautiful calico named Milly. You’ll see lots of pictures of her on Facebook and Twitter as I’m a very proud parent.

When Blaze Shinozuka got his dream job, he never imagined within a year he would be fired. After a botched performance with Cassie, he’s kicked off the tour — and so is his boyfriend Jason Stockton — but Blaze is determined to live his dream again and he may have found the perfect band to do it with. He will stop at nothing to be back on stage, though the costs of stardom may bring an end to his romance with Jason. Can Blaze have it all? Or will Blaze have to leave his first love behind to follow his destiny?
