Having characters in your head is almost like having friends that come into your life. Sometimes they’re in and out, and sometimes they stick around for a while. Kevin and Jeremy, whose first book was Too Close to Love, have been characters that settled in for the long haul and made it clear they weren’t going to budge.
One book…two books…I kept thinking that eventually they’d stop talking or that readers would get tired of hearing about them, but that hasn’t been the case yet. They are still as chatty as ever, and they’re some of the characters I get asked about the most.
Recently I sat down and started poking at them and figuring out what they’d been up to. Kevin happily rambled on about their new house and school and what everyone has been doing and had a ton to tell you guys about, including some sexy fun and what their father has been up to. Their new story, Too Close to Doubt, is out now on my site and on Smashwords.

This book came from multiple different angles for me. I never set out to write incest, even though the topic always pulled at my brain. But one day, I was listening to a song (lol “Hallelujah” by Pentatonix of all things) and something about one of the voices hit me. I was curious about why he sounded so sad…and my imagination took off. I can even picture where I was sitting when I was listening to the song. It’s still super clear to me.
As I started to think about the characters and story ideas, I realized he wanted something he thought he couldn’t have. The more I thought about it, the more I realized he was in love with his brother. It was then that I started thinking about someone I knew who had been in a relationship like that at one point.
Their life didn’t turn out to be anything like what they’d wanted, so I knew I was going to use my book to give them the happily ever after that they didn’t get. Incest brings to mind all kinds of different things for people, but Too Close to Love is a sweet, slow-burn romance where you see how their love grows.
The first book just about wrote itself; the characters and story were just that clear. If you’ve never tried reading incest, Too Close to Love is a great place to start!
