Thank you for joining me to celebrate the release of my newest m/m contemporary romance, The Heights, and thank you to Boy Meets Boys Reviews for having me!

Today, let’s play Two Truths and A Lie with the main characters from The Heights.

Quinn Carroll
1.            When Quinn was in high school, he was caught kissing a boy and was outed to the entire school. He and the other boy were suspended for three days, and when Quinn came back to class, the other boy pretended not to know him.
2.           Quinn went to a performing arts high school that was extremely competitive, and he won a competition his senior year that granted him a spot in a prestigious dance company. He didn’t stay with the company very long because it was taking away from his studies when he went to college, but he credits it for teaching him teamwork and persistence.
3.           Quinn met his best friend, Ian, on the playground at school on the first day of first grade. An older kid was holding Ian’s backpack over his head. Quinn offered the kid his homemade brownies if only he’d give Ian his backpack back.

Nat Walker
  1.  In sixth grade, for a creative writing assignment, Nat wrote a play about a hard-boiled egg that somehow lost its yolk, only to find it in the belly of a hamster.
  2. Nat lives in a cabin that belongs to his family, which was built by his grandparents before he was born. When Nat first moved in, he renovated everything, built extra rooms, and stored family photos in the attic.
  3. Nat was on his high school’s baseball team. In his senior year, the team travelled to a neighbouring town for a game and the bus got a flat tire. They were stuck on the side of the ride for three hours, and some of the guys on the team, including Nat, played round after round of poker. Nat won every round.
I hope you enjoyed this look into my characters! The Heights is out now and is available for purchase at Amazon, iBooks, B&N, and Kobo.

Book blurb:

Twenty-one years ago, a four-year old child was kidnapped from his front yard. He was never found. Until now.

All Nat Walker wants is to make his late father’s dream of running a father/son woodworking shop come true. And he had the perfect building in mind—until the new guy in town came in and bought the place right out from under him. The fact that the new guy is adorable means nothing. For all Nat cares, he can take his new dance studio and waltz back to New York City.

Professional dancer Quinn Carroll couldn’t be happier that he made the move to the small town of Lakeshore, Oregon. Sure, it’s not New York, but now he’ll be living closer to his adoptive brother. And since his studio will be the only one in the area, he should get enough business to keep him busy. Besides, there’s something about this place that seems familiar...

He doesn’t expect to fall hard for the local, grumpy woodworker who won’t even smile at him.

Or find out that his entire life is a lie.

“One dance,” Nat said, dropping his bag to the floor. Placing his palm in Quinn’s, he pulled Quinn into his arms. Quinn’s breath escaped him in a whoosh.
One dance was more than Quinn thought he’d ever get with Nat. He’d take it.
For a second, Quinn forgot who he was dancing with as his body found the rhythm of the music, hips rolling to the beat. The music flowed over him, transporting him somewhere else, the lyrics causing heat to flow through his veins until he forgot about everything else as the world fell away.
Nat bumped up against him, knees bent, bringing their groins together. It shocked Quinn into opening eyes he hadn’t realized he’d closed. Nat’s hand was at Quinn’s lower back, keeping him close. The grind of their hips made it impossible for Quinn to breathe and impossible for him to hide how hard he was. His skin was heating up, and he was already breathing hard.
Nat held nothing back. His hand strayed to Quinn’s ass. His breath was hot against the skin of Quinn’s neck. His other hand trailed down Quinn’s back, down his ass to squeeze Quinn’s thigh and bring Quinn’s leg up and around his hips.
Fuck yes.
Their hard cocks bumped. Quinn’s head fell back and he whimpered, the sound swallowed by the music. Nat’s eyes were hot on Quinn’s lips. Electricity shot through him everywhere their bodies connected.
Damn, Nat could move. It was sexy as sin. Dancing with him was like dancing with sex itself.
Quinn tightened his leg around Nat’s hips. Nat swallowed hard. Burying one hand in Nat’s thick hair, Quinn stood on his tippy toes and pressed them together, groin to chest. His other hand snaked up Nat’s T-shirt, and he pressed his palm against the sweaty skin of Nat’s back.
They danced like no one was watching. Like the rest of the world didn’t exist. Quinn needed to come so bad he briefly considered rubbing himself against Nat until he came all over himself. He was so hot, so turned on, he was in danger of exploding out of his skin.

Amy started writing on a rainy day in fourth grade when her class was forced to stay inside for recess. Tales of adventures with her classmates quickly morphed into tales of adventures with the characters in her head. Based in the suburbs of Toronto, Amy is a marketer/fundraiser at a large environmental non-profit in Toronto by day, and a writer by night. Book enthusiast, animal lover and (very) amateur photographer, her interests are many and varied, including travelling, astronomy, ecology, and baking. She binge watches too much anime, and loves musical theater, Julie Andrews, the Backstreet Boys, and her hometown of Oakville, Ontario.

Quinn: #1 is a lie. Quinn was never outed, although how he came to terms with his sexuality is revealed in The Heights.
Nat: #2 is a lie. Nat is much too sentimental (although he tries to hide it) to ever get rid of family photos or completely renovate something that was built by his grandparents.
