Praise for Deliciously Wicked

"Deliciously Wicked is his first, and it’s a debut that’s both strong and sparkling – pulling the reader into a world that’s fun, sexy, honest, and relatable."


Praise for Brutally Bitter

"An acerbic, but hilarious, look at relationships - friends, romantic and otherwise. How do you try to recover from the painful break-ups in your life, when one of the worst break-ups is unintentionally also with one of your friends? As many thumbs up as you have hands available for addressing issues about controlling, abusive exes. I've been told the embarrassment factor for guys, especially gays, makes this even harder. So thanks to the author for having the balls to be funny and brave! A great read if you enjoy sarcastic humor, and a good dialogue starter if have ever somewhere in your life dealt with the cycle of abuse in relationships."

—Molly G Hamblin, Book Sprout


Brutally Bitter now available!




“Holding onto bitterness is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” 

What do you do when your engagement to the man who you thought was the one falls through? (A) Seek Revenge, (B) Hire a hitman, or (C) Cry into a Cosmopolitan cocktail in front of your close friends at a bar. Going with option (C), Allister decides right then and there to start over, leaving behind the dismal past of his last relationship. The only dilemma standing in the way is the bitterness attitude his ex stained him with. How does one wear rose colored glasses when you see the world so cynically? 

Setting a year aside for himself, the plan was simple…openly embark his new chapter selfishly hoping that one day the grass does end up greener on the other side of the fence. Dive into Allister’s collection of witty essays, confessions, & diaries in his journey to letting go of what once was and embracing what could be. 

Maybe losing yourself is the cure to being found.



Cutting your friends from your life and treating guys as Ken Dolls may seem like an easy task to achieve...WRONG! It’s harder than you realize. Especially when you live in small city where the gay community consists of only a hundred people. So you’re bound to run into drama.

Recently single, Allister finds himself at a crossroad. Try the dating scene again hoping to find a better guy who won’t take him for granted or dip into the hook-up scene feeding his inner sex god.

In this collection of witty essays, confessions, & diaries Allister finds out what it means to act merely on pleasurable lust, coming face to face with a monster in the dark, and accepting Capricorn flaws as strengths.

Move over Carrie Bradshaw. There’s a new gay in the city.
