I balance my writing life with my home life and my friendships. I've always had great support of my work from "friends" until recently. I've never had so many negative comments about a book people have not bothered to read. Misconceptions, misunderstandings, and ignorance do not make good arguments for hurt feelings. Unfortunately, for some they do, and I understand that some things can't be fixed. You can't change someone else's beliefs and that's not my job.
I will never apologize for my success or for the fact that I love to write M/F and M/M fiction. My work is a safe place for people of all genders and sexual orientations who love to read to get away.
