Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s what I’m loving today…


Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all have or find someone to love who also loves and respects you.

Here are a few things I’m loving that I wanted to share.

  1. Video of an 80 year old grandmother speaking about her gay son
    “My son is not an issue. He’s a person. Just like you.”
  2. If you need some extra words when talking to your lover tonight check out these 47 words to call your lover
  3. Looking for a gay Valentine or other e-card? Try Out Greetings (that’s where the picture above came from)
  4. And lastly, check out what my honey made for my office. Isn’t it great?

Memorable Heroes from Film and TV

Hi everyone,

I only have a minute to post today (or I guess that should be tonight in my time zone), but I wanted to share a link. I guest blogged this week at the Loose Id author blog continuing my discussion about heroes. I shared some of my favorite characters from television and film. I’d love to hear who you would add to the list.

Memorable Heroes: Courage, Conviction & Vulnerability

Thanks for checking it out. Hope you all have a fab weekend!

I’m talking at Book Lovers Inc. today about men & what makes a hero stand out. I’m also giving away a copy of Breathe. Stop by if you have time. I would love to hear what you like in a hero.

Giveaway ends February 19th.

Have a great week!

Video I Love: Zach Wahls Speaks About Family

An amazing young man…

“Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student spoke about the strength of his family during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Wahls has two mothers, and came to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa.” (Source: YouTube)

Unfortunately, the Iowa House passed the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. “In order to become law, the amendment must now pass in the Democratic-controlled Iowa Senate.”

I have hope that more people will listen to Zach Wahls and all he represents.
