Snow on the Roof is out today! From the website copy:
“Just because there’s snow on the roof, doesn’t mean the fire’s gone out in the furnace.” There’s something to be said for maturity and experience, and in all of these relationships, at least one of the lovers is over forty. Whether it’s a May/December romance, a second chance at love, or finding a soul mate later in life, these stories prove that it’s never too late for love.
“Waiting for the Light”, my first story with Dreamspinner Press, appears in this anthology. Here’s the blurb:
James gave up on finding love again after his husband’s death–until meeting handsome stranger Don in a senior survivor’s group meeting. But Don is mourning the death of his wife, and James doesn’t want to risk the heartbreak of falling in love with a straight man. Can James find the way to Don’s heart while protecting his own?
I have a deep fondness for romance off the beaten track, the farther off the beaten track the better — romance that’s a little bit odd, a little bit quirky, a little bit different than two hot twenty-somethings snarking and sexing it up (not that there’s anything wrong with enjoying that! … but it isn’t my usual cup of tea). As soon as I saw the open call for this anthology, I knew it was something I had to write for, and though I haven’t had a chance to dig in yet, I really like the sound of the other stories sharing space with mine; there’s a lot of good stuff in this one, particularly if you (like me) are fond of romance that’s slightly quirky and different. Available directly from Dreamspinner Press, on Amazon, and at Barnes and Noble.com.
