If you're here, you probably came from Twitter or Facebook. Over the past few years I've connected with innumerable people in both mediums, and forged bonds that have made an immeasurable difference in my life. I only hope those bonds will continue to grow here, and I want to thank each and every one of you for your presence, your contributions, and your support.

CRIMINAL INTENTIONS, the M/M serial detective thriller I've been planning for the past year, is now live as a Patreon first look exclusive! You can read each full-length novel 3 months before it publishes to retailers, and for half the price at just $2--with bonus tiers including sketches, deleted scenes, episode playlists, early access to new episodes, voice readings, access to my backlist, and involvement in the creation process. As we reach new monthly totals we'll also unlock additional bonuses such as new serials and series swag.

I've loved bringing this project to life, and I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you. Thank you for sticking with me while I laid the foundation work for this series. I'm more grateful than you'll ever know.

Baltimore homicide detective Malcolm Khalaji has his own way of doing things: quiet, methodical, logical, effective, not always particularly legal. He’s used to working alone—and the last thing he needs is a new partner ten years his junior.

Especially one like Seong-Jae Yoon.

Icy. Willful. Detached. Stubborn. Seong-Jae is all that and more, impossible to work with and headstrong enough to get them both killed…if they don’t kill each other first. Foxlike and sullen, Seong-Jae’s disdainful beauty conceals a smoldering and ferocious temper, and as he and Malcolm clash the sparks between them build until neither can tell the difference between loathing and desire.

But as bodies pile up at their feet a string of strange, seemingly unrelated murders takes a bizarre turn, leading them deeper and deeper into Baltimore’s criminal underworld. Every death carries a dangerous message, another in a trail of breadcrumbs that can only end in blood.

Malcolm and Seong-Jae must combine their wits against an unseen killer and trace the unsettling murders to their source. Together, they’ll descend the darkest pathways of a twisted mind—and discover just how deep the rabbit hole goes. And if they can’t learn to trust each other?

Neither will make it out alive.
