Please give J.T. Cheyanne a warm welcome on this Fab Friday!!
Happy Friday everyone! I am so excited to be featured on Isabella’s blog this week and want to send a huge thank you to her for hosting me and giving me a chance to dish on two of my favorite guys, Spencer Hightower and Brock Kinkaid. These gorgeous men are featured in my book Grand Slam. I wanted to do an interview with them, but Spencer’s season is still going on and I hear the BoSox are having a dynamite season! Go Team!
So, since I don’t get to talk to the two smexies, I thought I’d tell you a bit about how they came to tell me their story. It all started with that wicked vampire Lachi Denali…some of you may know him, and if you do, you know he’s a wicked vampire king with a naughty sense of humor. Anyway, he lives in my head…and says the most inappropriate things at the oddest times…and yes it comes out of my mouth and yes…my straightjacket is tailor made in cobalt blue.
On this lovely Saturday evening, I was at McDonald’s with my daughter, Dakota, my son, Devan, and his girlfriend, Ashton. Now my children are definitely used to Lachi, and Ashton is getting there. She’ll say something and point at me and tell Lachi….the vampire in my head mind you…to be quiet. It makes me grin. All of them are so accepting of what I do…which by the way is writing gay erotica…and encourage me at every turn. So, we’re at McDonald’s having a laugh and talking about how much the vampire loves his angel, Laziel.
Out of the blue clear sky, Ashton bites into a fry, chews and says…”If Devan were ever going to be gay, it would be with Brock.” In real life and not in the gay whirlwind in my head, Brock is my son’s best friend. They’ve been best friends since they were very young and have supported each other through many of life’s ups and downs…death, divorce, high school and baseball. Devan was the baseball player. Devan rolls his eyes and laughs, says, “Why would I want Brock when I have you?” Yes…an aww moment, my boy’s a charmer, true. So, we keep laughing, move on to Lachi, but when I get in the car to drive home…Spencer showed up; a small town Alabama boy who loves baseball and wants to hit the majors. He’s out and he’s proud, and he would NOT shut up. I don’t think I’ve ever written so fast. I had another book already started and he just bulldozed on in to tell me just how much he loved his Brock.
I enjoyed every minute spent writing this book. Devan and Ashton were excited to have given me the idea and asked every time I saw them how it was going. Devan told Brock about the book and got a laugh and head shake. When I got ready to do the book cover, I teased Devan and told him I was going to use one of his senior pics, all decked out in his baseball uniform. He shrugged, told me to go for it. He’s such a good kid. I didn’t end up using his pic…I found a tremendous picture on a stock photo site and the lovely Soxie created a beautiful cover for me.
And, there ya go. We now have Brock and Spencer’s lovely story. For those of you who’ve already met them, an update. Spencer is happy being a new dad and playing for the BoSox. He and Brock live in Boston now with the twins. Brock runs his own CPA business from home where he keeps Bri and Brit. They love to go watch Daddy Spencer play ball. Brock still gets weak at the knees when he hears Spencer’s southern drawl. Corey is still Spencer’s biggest fan…make that second after Brock…and brags to everyone his uncle is famous. As for Anna Kate…she still wears her pink wedding dress and absolutely adores her cousins.
All of his life, Spencer Hightower dreamed of playing baseball in the Major Leagues. He survived growing up gay in rural Alabama due to his impressive skill on the baseball diamond. Now living in Rhode Island and playing for the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox, he’s only a few steps away from his goal.
Brock Kinkaid, CPA, faced each day with a smile that hid his deepest desire. He wanted to be a father. Unfortunately, the gay men he knew were not into the daddy scene. Resigned to being childless, he lavished his attention on his niece and nephew. When Corey won tickets to see the local baseball team in action, they suckered him into taking them despite the fact he loathed the game. Who would have guessed one homerun ball would change everything?
