“He’s a bad boy—cocky and damaged. So, why can’t I stop thinking about him?"
Broken DreamsSociable and unselfish, eighteen-year-old Tucker Graves loves two things—his darling little sister and the thrill of playing baseball. He never dreamed that he’d be homeless, but after a series of misfortunes, his life is nothing like he could have possibly imagined. Shocked and shattered, Tucker, his mother, and his baby sister now must brave the dangers of a dilapidated homeless encampment called Camp Roosevelt.
A Wounded HeartHomeless since the age of fourteen, Dancer has mastered the tricks of living on the streets as a sex worker. The quiet, reclusive, and calculating ways of this twenty-year-old, green-eyed Adonis help him to survive. He hides his emotional scars from the world by interacting only with his clients, whose occasional bizarre requests he reluctantly fulfills. Dancer’s past has taught him to trust no one.
A Second ChanceWhen Tucker and Dancer come face to face on a stormy night, having been thrown together under the same roof, Tucker brings out a feeling in Dancer that he didn’t know still existed in him—desire. Neither man can deny the attraction he feels for the other. But some scars run deep, causing both Tucker and Dancer to question whether falling in love is even possible, especially when survival is on the line.

Bryan writes M/M Romance with an emphasis on moral dilemma. His multicultural characters and riveting plots embody real life, filled with challenges, personal growth, and, of course, what we all desire—love.
1. I see that you are happily married to your soul mate of over thirty years. How does your husband feel about your writing career and does he play a part in your dream as an author?
He loves it, and had it not been for his encouragement, I most likely would not be a published author today. Once upon a time, my writing was only for my pleasure. I never thought about having it published. The only eyes I imagined seeing any of my work, was my husband. When he started reading my first book, ‘Ancient House of Cards’, his response was “You have to publish this!” Of course, I always listen to my husband! Today, he is not only one of my biggest fans, but next to my editor, he plays a sizable role in teasing out the growth in each character.
2. Wow! What’s the secret in lasting thirty plus years?
(Laughing…) There is no secret. He is my best friend; he’s the person who I want to spend my free time with (well, most of the time)! We even share the same name.
3. Do you think of yourself as a romantic?
Not really, but I get a tremendous amount of pleasure in spoiling my husband. He has been there for me through some of the toughest times in my life. He knows me better than I know myself. How can you not love a person who knows your demons and still loves you back anyways?
4. As a romance writer, do you work with an outline or just write from the heart?
I try to be a plotter, but that only lasts until the Characters take over. I start with an idea when it comes to me. I generally think this is the character trying to reach me in the beginning. Everything that is created is delivered by the characters themselves. Sometimes, that may even be in the middle of the night, as I’m trying to sleep.
5. One last question. What was the very first Male/Male romance book you every read?
That’s an easy one, ‘The Front Runner’ by Patricia Nell Warren, published back in 1974. I first read it when I was twelve. I have probably read it about ten times since. I had the biggest crush on the Billy Sive character in that book.
In his work, he is known to push the boundaries with brilliantly crafted stories of friendship, love, complicated relationships, and challenges all woven into a hard-earned happily-ever-after.
When Bryan is not writing, he enjoys reading a great book, traveling, lying by a body of water soaking up the sun, and watching a good movie while snuggled up with his husband on the couch with their loyal companion Nettie, the Sheepadoodle.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Bryan has made his home and life in the Central Valley of California.
