Taking Pride in my Writing

Hey y'all!

Most of y'all know I write GLBTQ fiction. I write het, as well, because I believe love is love, but there's a special place in my heart for m/m, f/f and menage. Why? Because I know you love who you love, and I believe that everyone should see themselves reflected in a love story.

Someone asked me the other day why I didn't seem to be all over Pride month. Frankly, I kinda forget there's a special month for that, as I celebrate pride every day! I tend to forget that not everyone is rainbow ready out there. So, every once in awhile it's good when something jolts me out of my, shall we call it complacency?

The recent SCOTUS decisions did that. While I don't live in a state with gay marriage laws, I do live in one that will recognize a marriage from another state. This means my girl and I could get married now. That? Rocks.

Makes me want to write a gay marriage story.

What are you doing for Pride?

I had two very close friends get engaged b/c of the SCOTUS decision - so I cried happy tears for them in celebration :D
