Length: Novel
Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing


LAPD Detective Sean Hennessey has one person he’s repeatedly tried to arrest and bring to justice: his nemesis, Mitchell Yates.

Yates has been in and out of trouble for years, always skating around the edges of LA’s underbelly; however, Sean can never pin anything on him.
But one night all of that changes.

Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, instead of arresting Yates, Sean is rescued by him and taken to Yates’ home—a satellite high above Earth. There, Sean discovers a world he thought possible only in Science Fiction.

Everything he believed he knew about Yates is turned upside down, and Sean must make a decision: to remain with the LAPD or join Yates and work toward intergalactic peace.

Book Trailer

Interview With the Author

Let's start by telling us in 20 words or less what the book is about.
A police detective begins a new life on a satellite with lover, and struggles with ex-boyfriend, aliens, & vicious animals.

What was it that led you to write in the genre(s) you write?
I write M/M because that's what I enjoy reading.

Are your books character led or plot led, or both?

What is your favourite part of the writing process?
Creating the characters, leading them through many different situations, and bringing them finally to a happy ending.

What is your least favourite part of the writing process
The waiting for a publisher's response after submitting a story.

Where do you get your inspiration for your characters?
I don't really know. They just come to me.

Tell us a little about the characters in your book and their story. You can use more than twenty words this time.
Sean Hennessey is a L.A. police detective and has this one particular person he has been trying to pin something on for years. He's always around when crimes are committed and Sean is sure he's involved. This person is Mitchell Yates (Yana).
Yana lives on a satellite in space, and works for a group called The Peace Keepers who fight for intergalactic peace.
The two of them meet, fall for each other, and struggle to maintain a relationship.

If you could have one wish what would it be?
To be able to lose weight and keep it off, while still eating ice cream, burgers, & pizza, and not – repeat not – have to exercise.

What's your deepest fear?
Becoming disabled and in need of constant care. Becoming a burden to my children.

If I came to dinner what would you feed me?

Which of your characters would you like to be sharing the dinner table with us?
Sean Hennessey, L.A. Police detective & Mitchell Yates (Yana) a fighter for intergalactic peace.

Tell us in the character’s own words, what he/she would have to say about you.
She never lets us rest, she puts us through hell, but she gives us a happy ending.

What would they say (again in their own words) about themselves, and their story that will make us want to read about it?
Sean Hennessey: I was given a choice of remaining in a routine, boring life in L.A., or joining a group fighting for intergalactic peace with my gorgeous green-eyed lover. I chose wisely.
Mitchell Yates (Yana): I finally found the man of my dreams. Now I have to convince him to leave the L.A. police force and join me, living on a satellite, and the sometimes dangerous missions we are sent out on.

Which other fictional character(s) would you like to be present at the dinner party?
From my book: The elders.
From any other book/movie: Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar from Brokeback Mountain.
Walter Skinner and Alex Krycek from The X-Files. Or maybe Indiana Jones.

What other authors would you say have either influenced your writing or you would like to emulate?
Chris Carter (X-Files), Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain), Richard Stevenson (Donald Strachey mysteries).

Which character from literature, would you most like to have invented?
Indiana Jones, but I would have made him gay.

What do you prefer writing. A one off novel, a series or short stories?
A one off novel.

What kind of books do you read (if you have time to read)?
Science fiction, westerns, any M/M romances with happy endings. I also enjoy reading about WW2.

Where do you see yourself personally and professionally in 5 years time?
Hopefully, still writing my stories and getting them published.

Do you have any other projects in the offing we should look out for?
Yes, I have another book that's been accepted by WIP called THE TEST. We haven't started the edits yet, so publication date is still unknown. It's about three college professors who find themselves the sole survivors after some unknown calamity destroys most of earth.

Where can we find you?
