Taylor Campbell is a bright, young lawyer at a prestigious firm in Chicago. His boyfriend, Grayson Sinclair, is every gay man’s dream: beautiful, charming, well off, and sporting a libido that never quits. But Taylor has a problem. He discovers Grayson has a dark side—a very dark side. He’s part owner of a gay night club, and he’s “recruiting” young men for his sex club. He has his eye on Dion, the main character in One Thing Leads. Taylor watches as Grayson splits up Dion and his boyfriend, then slowly seduces him one step at a time. By the time Taylor realizes what Grayson is doing, it’s too late to stop him. Or is it?
Although Taylor plays a minor role in the story, it’s an important one. He comes to the realization that he can no longer do nothing. But what should he do? Taylor has a decision to make, and it will make all the difference for Dion, his boyfriend, and Grayson.
One Thing Leads is a thrill ride with a solid love story right down the middle of the plot. On a more subtle level, it explores what triggers that first step down an uncertain road. Below you’ll find a synopsis, a short bio of yours truly, and the requisite excerpt, freebies, and “buy me!” linkage. Click and enjoy.
What makes a young man go further than he ever thought he would?
Dion Bellamy is twenty-seven and studying social work at the University of Chicago. He has lived with Kenji Okamura, a construction worker, for a year and a half. Dion loves Kenji and passionately hopes Kenji feels the same, but he has never said the three big words. Then Grayson Sinclair, Dion’s schoolmate and a vivacious, oversexed playboy, comes between them.
One step at a time, barely aware where his steps are leading, Dion descends the slippery slope into a life of depravity. First, Grayson ensures Kenji is out of the way. Then he entices Dion to go clubbing with him, gets Dion drunk and high, and then takes him to a sex club, where he films Dion giving blow jobs to multiple men. He threatens to put the video online unless Dion signs a contract to work as a prostitute. Though he hardly understands how he reached this point, Dion must now figure out how to escape his fate and save himself.
I’m a southern boy who lives in Chicago and enjoys fine wine, dark chocolate, and plays jazz piano from time to time. Most of all, I love writing gay romance and erotica that will touch your heart and make you laugh.

“God,” Dion screamed, throwing his hands in the air in disgust. He and Kenji glared like dogs circling each other before attacking. Finally Dion broke the tension. “I need some air,” he said, then spun on a heel and strode to the bedroom. Kenji sat still as stone, listening to Dion slamming drawers as he found clothes suitable for going out.
How did this happen? I wanted to come clean. I thought if we talked about it--
After quickly dressing, Dion stormed to the front door.
“Where are you going?”
“Out,” Dion said without looking at Kenji. “Does that meet with your approval?”
“Dion, don’t be—”
The sound of the door slamming rang in Kenji’s ears. Footsteps fell hard and fast down the stairs. When they stopped, he looked away from the door. He closed his eyes at the muffled sound of another door slamming hard two floors below. When he opened his eyes a few minutes later, he looked down, surprised to see dots of blood on the seat of the recliner. He opened his hands and saw that his fingernails had broken the skin of his palms.
