I’m so excited right now that just sitting down to write this announcement is a challenge. Back in July of this year, I submitted two manuscripts to Desert Palm Press, and for the last three months, I have been on pins and needles, but today, I am happy to say that they have picked up two of my novels, and I will be joining the Desert Palm Press family as their first transgender author.
My first novel, a superhero romance titled Scatter will be published in Spring of 2022. Here’s a brief Synopsis:
When Deputy US Marshal Danielle ‘Danny’ Martin was told she’d gotten a promotion, she expected to be leading her own fugitive retrieval team. Instead, she got transferred to Pontian, Florida of all places, and assigned to a Superhero support detail for Focus, a seemingly immortal superhero who is also one of the most famous lesbian icons on the planet.
Bad enough she’s got to spend every day working with work a woman she’s had a crush on since she was five years old, but when she arrives at her new post, things start getting weird. It turns out that Focus asked for her by name, and it quickly becomes apparent that Focus wants to be more than just coworkers, or even friends.
After Focus has a violent reaction to Danny getting hurt in the line of duty, she starts looking into why the Superhero might be so fixated on her. She begins to suspect that seeing the future might be one of Focus’ powers, but when a mission leaves her stranded thirty years in the past, right at the start of Focus’s superhero career, everything becomes clear, except why the Focus in the past can barely seem to tolerate her presence.
Scatter will be followed later in the year by a queer poly sci-fi romance called Mail Order Bride. Beyond that, I don’t know what the future holds, but what I can tell you is that I am incredibly excited to see these two books finding their way into print. Being an author has been a dream of mine for more than three decades, and to finally see that dream take form means more to me than I can put into words.
I want to thank everyone who has supported and encouraged me along the way, and to all my future readers, I hope you find the journeys these books take you on just as rewarding and satisfying as the journey I had writing them.
