What’s “the Gift all about? Here, let me tell you:
Doren has a gift—the gift of music—and he’s well on his way to becoming the next big thing. What people don’t know is that this particular gift holds far more power than most could ever imagine. But not everyone is blind to it though, and those that know crave that power to dangerous levels.
August understands the differences between right and wrong. Unassuming and quiet, his one goal in life is to make an impact in an industry that’s quickly slipping out of his reach. So when his simple life becomes entwined with Doren’s complicated one, he has to learn a whole new way to survive if he’s going to succeed. Because he is quickly realizing that those with the ability to take will stop at nothing to take it all – even your heart.
Can true love be fostered in a situation hell-bent on destruction and domination?
‘The Gift’ follows the path of a romance ripe with magic and intrigue. Told from many sides, it is a story that leaves the reader to decide if the gifts that make one special are truly blessings or curses, and if lives are merely a game of fate or a series of manipulations that forge truer destiny.

Some WIPs of an oil painting I am working on – the first one after so many years. It feels simply great to mix colours again and to feel the brushes touch the canvas. 😃

The painting depicts the pool scene in my wonderful buddy’s A.F. Henley’s marvelous novel The Chase and the Catch, showing main character John Liege getting some attention by erotic movie star Parker Chase.

A lot of the background is done and I started colouring John so this is in a very early stage. Boy, was I nervous to mix real colours for skin tones again and painting a body with brushes. Good thing that oil paints are so forgiving!

I thought it would also be fun to share a picture of my palette with the mixed skin tones. It looks a bit messy admittedly. 😄



A rough reference sketch of John Liege from A.F. Henley’s novel The Chase and the Catch. Will use this as reference for an oil painting I am working on. 😃

I got this wonderful and hilarious gift from an amazing friend and will post a page from it every now and then when I have coloured one. 😀

So prepare for, and I quote: ”30 sinfully hot men and horrendously bad pick-up lines“!

For some reason, I do not know why did my guts tell me to make this football hottie blonde. 😉

To be honest? These pick-up lines are so bad that they are awesome and I had such tremendous fun with them already! 😀



It has been years since I did my last pastel drawing so this is kind of a first time for me again with a traditional medium. 😃 And what better boys to draw in soft pastels than this gorgeous couple! ❤️


My wonderful buddy A.F. Henley starts a mini blog tour today to celebrate the release of his awesome new novel We Three Kings. 😀


We Three Kings…

My newest novel, We Three Kings, is a story about resolution, redemption, and faith — and it’s coming to your favourite online dealer on March 1st, 2017.

… Join me for a mini blog tour and giveaway

It hasn’t been that long since the last blog tour and giveaway, has it? Rather than spam you all with a dozen more hits, I’ve contacted just three sites who have agreed to take part in a “mini” blog tour and giveaway. And this time, there’s going to be a giveaway and winner at each one of those stops.

So, what is We Three Kings?

We Three Kings is a gay contemporary romance (contemporary in the timeline of 1982, anyway) that follows a successful businessman, his two business partners, and a blast-from-the-past that none of them would have ever expected. Now they’re all going to have to come to terms with who they were, what that did to them, and how that past has impacted not only their presents, but their futures.

wethreekings400We Three Kings

by A.F. Henley

Chicago 1982 is a goldmine for the construction industry, and Eric and his two business partners are thriving. Once nothing more than orphans in a Catholic boys’ home, they’ve overcome poverty and abuse to obtain success. Now living the lives they once only dreamed of, they’re sure of one thing: they will never look back.

Then the past returns, by way of a cheap polyester suit and a smile Eric has never forgotten—and all the dark memories come crashing back. Lucky for him, Jimmy has no idea who Eric is, or who Eric used to be…

  • Genre: Gay, Contemporary Romance
  • Notes: contains some explicit content and references past abuse. This story also includes brief flashbacks of graphic violence.
