Bio:

I'm a QAF fanatic and make sure to watch my favourite eps once a week.  I have only been writing since September 2016 and find that I have to get at least one chapter done a day!  


With regards to my writing, there will always be the following constants:


Brian and Justin will always be together, though past tricks may come back to into their lives


Anti-Michael and ant-Lindsay...with their behaviour leading to break up of his, and maybe, her relationship with their partners, which leads me to...


Ben and Mel's characters written with more backbone and more insight respectively to their partners behaviour than in the series...


Although I will write them in an unlikeable way from time to tiime as well as other characters, but not as much as Michael and Lindsay.


Strong original female character 


Foodcentric...am also a food whore!


Furballs...I absolutely love cats and dogs so one or both will feature.


And as I live in London some of my words/phrases will be different to the American English but will try and catch as many as I can.


I hope you enjoy the stories I write and know I will enjoy the stories I read

Summary:

When Brian wins big on the lottery he and Michael take off for 2 years. Upon their return, Debs is delighted, not only are her boys back but they are finally a couple...but only according to Michael. What he thought has been a dream adventure has been a litany of moaning, complaining and bitching for Brian, so bad did it get that he cut the trip short! Now he's back and needs something to do...Ted and Emmett find him something to do during the day and his passion for photography finds him something do at night...oh and there's the little matter of Lindsay...she wants a baby and wants Brian to play daddy, or should that be Daddy Warbucks, but does Mel want to play mommy still?

Huge thanks and love as ever to my betas...you babes rock!

Summary:

Formerly titled Don't Know Why But I Do: Smoke and Mirrors

Two years ago advertising guru and sometime artist Brian Kinney was shot and nearly killed but an angel called Justin saved his life. Neither of them has forgotten the other. When they are brought back together by Liberty Avenue's Mistress of Love, Marilyn and his close friend Emmett sparks fly once again, much to the delight of The Avenue, as well as Justin's friends Chris and Daphne.

But questions still haunt The Avenue, who tried to kill Brian? Why did they try and do it? Why is Michael's childhood best friend Mercy back in town? What secret is she hiding?

This is a story of mysteries and revenge, but most of all a story of love.

Summary:

DATE

Billionaire ad exec, Brian Kinney has just moved to town, riding in on his motorcycle to open a new branch of his very successful agency, Kinnetic. Soon after settling in to one of the largest mansions in the area with his two dogs, he meets his neighbor, Justin Taylor. Justin is a world renowned cellist who has recently moved into a nearby mansion.  He loves fast cars, adorable cats, and has the annoying habit of practicing….loudly, (at least according to Brian) for hours on end. Despite his initial annoyance, Brian soon grows fond of the music and the cellist, but after experiencing a broken heart in the past has vowed to never allow himself to love again.  The problem is, the heart wants what the heart wants, and there's not much the brain can do to stop it.

 

Huge love and thanks as ever to our betas: Nichelle, Kathy and Brandi

I choose this story because it has drama, intrigue, humor, sex... all the things which allow me to settle and suspend my reality for a good long while. Anytime I'm ready to bite folks for disturbing me while reading... well you KNOW that's a great read! -Nichelle Wellesley 

Sequel to The Buzz of the Wasp.  

Luther gathers enemies of Brian, Justin, and Zee... yes, including those two... to seek revenge for his humiliation. He thinks he's got game, he is so very wrong!
