Rainbow Snippets October 4th, 2020

Life is good. Kitties are crazy yet furry and sweet; Jack has a new sensor so we can read his glucose at our leisure now too. Work is fine, albeit a bit harsh on my neck, back, and eyes, but such is the life of an accountant. 😦 I miss writing and doing anything creative beyond drumming, but my life has become engrossed with school and cats 🙂

As for the story, let’s continue with this first memorable interaction of Erik and Asher.

Here’s my snippet for the week:

What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.

I”m changing gears completely and going to a beloved co-authored work and a series of Upstaged. Written by myself and Cheryl Headford (Nephy to some) in 2012! Over the course of two years we wrote 12 books together! It was the most insane, wonderful time of my writing life! We hope you love the result. The first four books are published and up for sale at Extasy Press and on Amazon. Here is book #1. Upstaged: Opening Act


Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.
Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.
Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.
A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.

“I didn’t hear anyone whine. But I did hear something squeak. Was it you, little mouse? If I closed my eyes I could have imagined I heard a creaky old gate up there on the stage, swinging in the breeze.”

Rage coursed through Erik’s veins—his Viking heritage coming to the fore. He balled his hands into fists and fairly snorted, like a bull ready to gore the matador.

Fortunately, Daisy intervened. “Asher! Stop it right now or you’ll be sorry.”

“Dudes! Chill the fuck out,” Billy commanded from behind his drum set. Even Joey was pissed.

“Take a pill, Nordgren. Damn.” He put his arm around Daisy.

“Not as sorry as this sorry-looking excuse for a singer,” Asher drawled, lounging against the wall. Erik’s fingers itched. “More like a fifty-year-old karaoke warbler after a packet of Woodbines.”


A lover of words and writing since they entered my life as a young child. Now a devout lover of men (especially late teen, college and mature men) to write their stories.

    1. Asher is a controlled cool type that gets under your skin. Erik is the hothead raging bull type.
