Karielle reviews High Octane Heroes (Cleis Press) at Books a la Mode and has this to say about "Big Guns," my contribution to the anthology:
"Big, brutish Special Agent Howie is THE man of our unnamed narrator's naughty fantasies. When, on her bartending gig, she finds herself in the middle of his undercover assignment, he not only saves her life, but also teaches her exactly what fantasies are made of. I liked the sensuality of this story, and how it leaves a lot to the imagination."
She gives my story and the entire collection eight out of ten hearts. Read the entire review here.

Random thought

I plan to found a new company called Michael Enterprises, or ME for short, so the next time someone says, "You're not the boss of me!" I can look them squarely in the eye and say, "Actually, I am."
