Garrett Leigh’s debut, Gypsy Rain, a M/M Contemporary Romance of only 34 pages, was published in July 13th by Black Jazz Press – though this is now out of print. Gypsy Rain was quickly followed by Slide, the first book in the Roads series, Rainbow Award winner and Bestseller.
Don’t look back. Don’t you ever look back…
Shy tattoo artist Ash has a troubled past. Years of neglect, drug abuse, and life on the streets have taken their toll, and sometimes it seems the deep, unspoken bond with his lover is the only balm for wounds he doesn’t quite understand.
Chicago paramedic Pete is warmth, love, and strength—things Ash never knew he could have, and never even knew he wanted until Pete showed him. But fate is a cruel, cruel mistress, and when nightmares collide with the present, their tentatively built world comes crashing down.
Traumatic events in Pete’s work life distance him from home, and he doesn’t realize until it’s too late that Ash has slipped away. Betrayal, secrets, and lies unfold, and when a devastating coincidence takes hold, Pete must fight with all he has to save the love of his life.
As well as the Roads series, Garrett Leigh is also the author of the Blue Boy books, the Heated Beat series and Only Love, as well as stand-alones, Heart, More Than Life, Shadow Bound and one of my favourite reads of this year, Misfits.
I would like to thank Garrett Leigh for agreeing to appear on Male Monday today 🙂 Here is the interview . . .
Me: Name the 3 biggest distractions from your writing.
GL: Er, just about everything, but mainly my family—which I can’t complain about, because I love them dearly—my second job as a cover artist, and staring at the wall. If I wrote down every story that floated through my tiny brain while staring at the grubby white paintwork in my office, I’d be the most prolific writer out there.,/p>
Me: What is inspiring you lately?
GL: A documentary I watched about post-head-injury amnesia. Watch this space!
When not writing, Garrett can generally be found procrastinating on Twitter, cooking up a storm, or sitting on her behind doing as little as possible. That, and dreaming up new ways to torture her characters. Garrett believes in happy endings; she just likes to make her boys work for it.
Garrett also works as a freelance cover artist for various publishing houses and independent authors under the pseudonym G.D. Leigh. For cover art info, please visit blackjazzpress.com
