It’s a hot summer…let’s go for a swim…


“Working in the campus bookstore wasn’t my ideal job, but it was what afforded me the opportunity to run into my first crush, my old swim coach.  Andre Dupree was a beautiful man, and for the few years he coached my intramural swimming club, the Squids, I spent every practice just staring at him.  I never dreamed I’d get a second chance with my first crush, but that day he was standing in front of me with a smile that nearly melted my clothes off my body.  He was even more gorgeous than I remembered.  He also had a girlfriend and I was reminded of his long list of conquests from high school.  I didn’t stand a chance in hell.

“Fate had a crazy way of reminding people life wasn’t fair.  My reminder came at the hands of a person I hardly knew.  I met new people, made new friends, faced many new challenges, and learned my way around campus, but nothing prepared me for the darkness coming my way.  Learning to navigate the aftermath of the worst event in my young life was one of the hardest things I’d ever done, and I tried to do it alone.  People in my life fought to stay even as I tried to push them out.  There was one person who fought the hardest…the Swim Coach.”  Colton J. Wixsom

I grew up in the rural Midwest before moving to the East Coast with a dashing young man who swept me off my feet, and we've now settled in the desert of Nevada. I write M/M contemporary romance, subgenres: sweet low angst, age-gap, cowboys, mysteries, and military/mercenary to name a few. I am a firm believer in "Love is Love" regardless of how it presents itself, and I'm a staunch ally of the LGBTQIA+ community. I have a loving, supportive family, and I feel blessed by the universe and thankful every day for all I have been given. I’m old enough to know how to have fun, but too old to care what others think about my definition of a good time. In my heart and soul, I believe I hit the cosmic jackpot. Cheers!
