I’m sad to say that my former publisher Loose Id is closing its doors on May 7, 2018. Loose Id gave my first book MORE a chance, and I will always be grateful for the opportunity they offered me to share my stories with readers. I learned a lot working with LI and their editors, and I’m very sorry to see another indie publisher go out of business. I wish every author with Loose Id the best as they work to find a new home for their books.

We must never forget what those early days of AIDS were like. How the world lost so many beautiful, wonderful people, and how so many of them died alone, afraid, and unloved because of fear and ignorance and hatred.
People like Ruth Coker Burks did what was heartbreakingly all too often needed.

I’m thrilled to share that my new website is now up and running. It’s a mobile-friendly version that should be easier to read on smaller devices and tablets. We’re in the process of live beta testing the pages so there may still be a small glitch or two, but I couldn’t wait to share the new look.
There’s also a new newsletter sign-up form right on the homepage. We’re just about to send out my next newsletter, which always includes a reader giveaway, so now’s a great time to sign-up for that. (Plus I usually do a little something extra for my subscribers to celebrate the end-of-year holidays.)
Thanks for checking out the new site.
The reason this website exists is just heartbreaking, but it’s so beautiful to see all the support and love for Michael from people of all ages. I am reminded yet again that there is truly more love and goodness in the world than there is hate and evil.
Please take a moment to have a look at the Art for Michael project. There’s also a Facebook page.
We are with you in spirit, Michael!
