Grace Lin's brilliant TEDx talk: The Windows and Mirrors of Your Child's Bookshelf

I loved this.

As a parent, as a reader, as an adult who had also been a child with no books to mirror who I was back to me.

It turns out the reason Grace writes books for young people, is the same as mine...


With thanks to my husband and Yapha for the recommendation!

I wonder if you'd be interested in reading & revieeing two of my short stories in the gay romance genre.

The first is Soulmates. In Soulmates Robert and Lucas keep missing each other. In fact, they’ve never met. That is until a disembodied spirit assigns himself Robert’s case. Can this spirit create the perfect opportunity for these two potential Soulmates to finally meet? And if they do meet, how will it go?

The second is A Few Amazing Moments. In A Few Amazing Moments Shaun shares his journey to find love through the decades. From his teen experience of rejection; to living by the philosophy of grabbing a few amazing moments of love where he can. The moments always coming to an end as he expects. But with Nathan his best friend and lover, will it be a happily ever after or is it another one of those relationships with a shelf life?
