Slippery When Wet
We live in a world where everywhere you look there are interracial couples. I've gotten some flack over the years from people who think I shouldn't be writing MM and yes I have gotten hate mail because apparently I'm doing something wrong. My first hate mail was from a woman who thought mixing a black man with a white is a horrible thing and I should "be ashamed" of myself because I'm the "problem" in the world today. I blinked at the email, took a deep breath, then quite politely replied to her email explaining to her that she was the one with the issue not me.
But I digress.
Personally, I don't know if there is anything in the MM world more beautiful than men who speak different language loving each other. Recently I wrote what we in the industry call a BLASIAN erotic romance. This is Asian/Black in my story LOVE LIES BLEEDING When I write things like this sometimes it hasn't been done before and to my shock and happiness, it was received quite well.
I celebrate MM romance by staying true to what I love the best - cultures. I celebrate the men who fall in love with each other not caring that one's skin colour might be the same or one speaks with an accent. I celebrate the the idea of Mantasies and I truly hope that after reading one of my books, gay men out there will look at the world and perspective mates in a different light. I want them to take from my stories that their one true love--that special person may not be from their background and that hopefully will open them up to the possibilities of something more than the norm.
M/M romance for me is my way of giving back to a culture (the lgbt community) for all the good things they have blessed me with over the years, including great food, great friends and laughter!
