How did you come up with the title for Emerald Idol?

The title describes the book’s handsome green-eyed hero, Nick.  He becomes a pop idol, but learns that the adventurous road to lasting love isn’t guaranteed by fame and stardom, and can have some bumps -- and deadly hazards -- along the way.

How did you sell EMERALD IDOL, your first MM novel,  to Dreamspinner Press?

I followed their submission guidelines to the letter, which included sending them a summary of the book as well as the completed manuscript.  They respond in something like six to eight weeks.  I got the news on a New Year’s Day and needless to say, I was (and am) ecstatic.

What is EMERALD IDOL about?

Set in Los Angeles in the present day, soulful eighties-era pop music sensation Nick Davanger's comeback is threatened by blackmail, old enemies, and the sins of a past life of decadence in London.  But hunky African American police detective Anson Bay has what it takes, and then some, to protect Nick from his powerful enemies and show him that he can love again.  That is, if Nick will let him.
