THAT’s MY ETHAN
This is our story, mine and Ethan’s.
It is our story about two gay men, (well, one gay and one bi), beating the false pretenses that gay men can’t know love at first sight, let alone stay together, happily ever after. They are all wrong.
I’m not a gay married man, I’m a happily married gay man.
And I am going to prove it.
They met in college. Damir was a player in every sense of the word and proud of it– Ethan wanted nothing to do with the game; yet neither would deny the attraction they shared was too potent to resist. So what are two young men to do when the lines are too irresistible not to cross? A safeword.
It was a lifestyle structure that gave them the means to grow together, even as they struggled to understand it along the way. But what never wavered was who they’d set their goals to be with. Sometimes you just know. The challenge is making it possible.
(based on the true story of how my two best friends met and fell in love, not to leave out the amount of intimacy that will make just about anyone, including this author, extremely envious hahaha)
The story that is three years ion the making is finally coming out!! An Epic tale of Ancient Briton times during the Roman Occupation. A Mixture of legends, folklore and history this is tale that will grab you by the seat and keep you turning the pages.
Pre-Arthurian Historical Fantasy / Epic Adventure / British Editing / Graphic
Serving as a Brittunculi Legionnaire in the very occupation he hates the most, Trystian has yet to labour through some of the hardest lessons of life.
Fourteen years of his youth have been conscripted by the deceitful Legatus Legionis Gallus through impossible choices forced upon him; that time is gone, but now, so are the Romans. Free after so long, Trystian’s only desire is to go home— to the family he fears has been destroyed, even after he’d remained dutifully under the regime, and to the one with whom he left his heart.
In a time when so few dare to pray to her any longer, he hopes his devotion to his Goddess is strong enough to wake her from the slumbers of abandonment, so that she may see him through his ultimate and most brutal path yet ahead. The one that will finally return him home. It is this journey, at the most dismal point in his life, which forces him to reconcile with his past, and make peace with the choices that had been made for him long ago.
It’d started when he’d been a young man, struggling with how to contain his discontent of the Roman occupation of Briton so as not to shame his father. Nevertheless, not even the receding Roman reign had come soon enough for Trystian. But back home in Penrith, Cumbria, the ominous Roman presence wasn’t the only thing that caused Trystian a troubled mind. As a young man coming of age, he found there were some things he didn’t have in common with other young men, and an encounter with a secret Welsh noble with exotic eastern features both terrified and excited Trystian. However, life for Trystian wasn’t just his own or simple enough for him to have the time he had wished for to explore. Such feelings, stirring within him— they remained untouched as he was tutored and conditioned to be something greater for their people and the family’s future.
After all the misfortune and misery of the past, Trystian now forges towards a future he never once imagined as his fate. For the Goddess never truly abandons her children born from the blessed rites of the Calan Mai.
For Trystian Pendragon isn’t just high born, he is Sliocht na Péiste— “born of the dragon”— and his future belongs to the Goddess and to the destiny of the royal Pendragon bloodline. Survive it all, and the Goddess Morrighan just might bless him with a reunified bond he’d once made within the Anáil Dhragain.

Well after yet another debacle to have this website built up and running again, its all connected once more and no longer are people finding the grey field of death suggesting we were for sale. (YIKES, that was scary)
Now lets see if I can start moving forward again.
… until the next road side disaster hahaha
Before I stepped onto the path that would transform my body forever, I had started on a new book project. One that had been requested by a very close friend. He wanted a historical fantasy with full on sword fights, folk lore, world building, and while it didn’t have to have romance or erotica, the main character had to relate gay. It only took maybe all of a day before a tale began to scribble itself into my mind and off I went. But as I headed into the genre world of historicals, I worried about its chances against the critics given it was being penned by an author already known for romance and erotica.
It wasn’t long after when I made the choice to stop living in the closet and that gave me an excellent opportunity to adopt a second pen name, one that would be used for my historical fantasies and post-apocalyptic sci-fis.
I was rather excited about it, but then the historical fantasy I was working on kept getting bigger and taking longer to finish. I grew antsy and decided to create a facebook account for me under my new name. I kept to just a few folks, mostly people and friends I knew outside of facebook and those who knew I was transitioning, but it gave me some freedom to be the new me and not have to wear the facade of “Princess’ any longer. Of course with it came the anxiety that someone would eventually call me out as catfishing. I really wasnt, but from an outside limited perception I could see why someone might think it. (It was nerve racking to say the least. LOL)
I did finally go public about my transitioning, and I shed my old name away permanently as well a on facebook, but here in Stephan’s world, I still didn’t have a finished book so there really wasn’t any sense in announcing the new penname. Well… that too has passed and I am thrilled to announce I am venturing off into the genre I love the most and have just completed my first Historical Fantasy Novel as STEPHAN KNOX.
Now, don’t worry, I will still be writing as Tarian P.S. with several more Teddy Bear books to put out. And Rock Harding will be releasing another coloring book sometime this year. But I am leaving the big ass epic stories to Stephan and I hope you’ll like me there as much as you do my other tales.
Wish Me Luck and stay tuned!!! I’m taking Stephan on a blog tour to announce his new book release on January 29th!!!
OH and while you’re at it, swing by and send me a friend request. It has been so lonely over there. HAHA
What a year, aye? It’s been a long one despite its mathematical calendar being the same as all years before, this one has left us winded and tussled. We’re all glad to see it come to its close. But lets look at some good and take that memory with us.
I know I know, you’re rolling your eyes at me then risking a glance at the bookshelf to the empty spot next to your copy of ‘Right One 4 Diesel’ by Talon P.S. and those of you in France are awaiting the French release of ‘Dominer l’Heritiere’ wondering what good am I referring to. HAHA. Well, I know the delays in the Dominion of Brothers Series has not brought smiles on your faces, rest assured the series is not left behind and you’ll be receiving your bounty in 2018.
But 2017 saw the release of something very different. ME. The real me, the person hiding in the wrong skin for all of my life. The decision to make that change took place the day after Christmas in 2015, as I drove home. I tell you when those words slips from my lets, “Its time.” the rest of me responded “Yeah… yeah… YEAH! It is time.” A smile came over my face and here I am two years later, and I haven’t lost it since. In February of 2017, Princess was finally allowed to slip away with the past and Tarian, a name chosen to match my brothers became legal. 2017, also blessed me with my twin’s face in the mirror. A little older than I remember him, but I am finally my brother’s true twin. And then in October, thanks to the tremendous assistance of the organizers at the Gay Romance Literature convention, held in Denver, Colorado, I came out publicly before all my author and reader friends.
Along with this transition, I gained a renewed strength to ventured back into one of my favorite genres, Historical Fantasy, along with a new author pen name for the genre specific books. Don’t worry, you will still see me writing as Tarian P.S., but keep your eyes out for another version of me to be announced soon, because he’s (me, hee hee) going to take you on a venture that will blow your mind and leave you in a state of book-coma for days.
2018 will also see the release of the next two books of the Dominion of Brothers series, ‘Touching Vida~Vince’ and ‘Seducing His Thief’. And if all goes well A couple more Teddy Bears to add to your collection.
2017 may have seemed like a barren year, but it was actually a year of much sowing. For all of us, it was a year working to make us stronger; a long year of hard work to reap in the new year.
I first have to offer an apology for not having this post written in French, (I’ll try to get that done by the end of the week) But if you’re bilingual please read on and share the news, Juno Publishing will be releasing in September:
The Dominion of Brothers Series book 1.5 !!
