Hello Gabbi!  Thank you so much for visiting Written Butterfly with me today!  It’s such a pleasure to chat with you.  So tell me…

Q) Is your book part of a series?  If so, can you tell us about it?

My Past, Your Future is part of The Wild Rose Press’ Deerbourne Inn series.  The series takes place in the fictional Vermont town of Willow Springs.  Each book involves a member of the town and a guest at the inn.  My guest is a visiting history professor from

Scotland, visiting the local cemeteries to glean the stories of the inhabitants.  He meets a Civil War soldier who happens to be a ghost.

Q) What type of research did you do for your book?

My ghost is a black Civil War soldier, so there was plenty of research involving the war and a black soldier’s place in it.  My character was a free man in the north who felt it was his duty to fight to free the slaves in the south.  He died in a conflict in the Carolinas and now haunts the cemetery in his hometown.  I also did research into Scotland, as I wanted a history professor from another country.  I have a thing for the Scots.

Q) Do you have a writing quirk, or habit when you write?

I write while sitting in Starbucks with my trusty chinpoo therapy dog at my feet.  She’s a bit of a celebrity with the clientele in the store, was even chosen as customer of the week once.

 Q) What do you think is your strongest asset as a writer? …what is your weakest factor as a writer?

My weakest factor is self-editing.  I love to write but struggle with the editing part of the work.  I know it’s important and have spent a lot of time learning how to make the manuscript the best it can be before I hand it over to the professionals.  My strongest asset is my versatility.  This book is a paranormal gay erotic romance.  I have written books that are sweet without any sex, contemporary with mild heat, and erotic.  I enjoy writing vanilla books and BDSM.  I have every pairing out there, including a short story in a charity anthology that is a lesbian love story.  I am a firm believer in love in all shapes and sizes and my characters always get a happy ending.

Q) What are your upcoming projects?

I have written another gay romance for The Wild Rose Press and have a BDSM dark erotic in edits with them as well.  I can’t wait to share these stories with readers

About My Past, Your Future:
Callum MacLaren, a professor from Scotland, visits Willow Springs, Vermont during the Winter Solstice to study and explore the rich history of St. Joseph's Cemetery. His encounter with a sexy soldier in a tattered Civil War uniform is a captivating puzzle, and the more he learns, the deeper his attraction.

A hundred and fifty years ago, Elijah Freeman was killed during the Second Battle of Fort Wagner and woke up in Willow Springs, the only home he'd known. Alone, he roams the town, unable to leave or interact with a single soul until an intriguing Scot addresses him. Even stranger, the man can see him, hear him, and touch him--a sizzling caress that leaves Elijah aching for more.

But will Elijah return to his ghostly form when the magic of the solstice fades, or is Callum's love enough to keep him in the land of the living? Genre: M/M Paranormal Erotic Romance

Excerpt My Past, Your Future:
“I’m not sure I have many answers.” And Elijah wasn’t. He’d figured a few things out over the years, but much of it was contradictory and nonsensical. Still, he relaxed a little, no longer on edge. 

“Well, let’s start with you being able to touch people and them able to touch you.” As if experimentally, he placed his hand on Elijah’s. “You’re cold. Are you always cold, or is it the weather?” 

Elijah cleared his throat. This was the first human touch he’d had in years, and it affected him more than he’d ever imagined. Not that he’d spent a lot of time wondering because he’d assumed it’d never happen. Should he have tried earlier, or was it, as he suspected, only this man? 

Please don’t let go of my hand. 

Cautiously, he curled his fingers, holding on tighter. 

Callum reciprocated. 

“As for temperature. I don’t understand. I don’t feel cold now, and I don’t feel hot in the summer. And summers around here can be brutal, despite how far north we are.” 

Callum nodded. “Edinburgh, where I’m from, can get warm in the summer. But we’re closer to the northern point of the country, so it’s temperate as opposed to oppressive.” 

His thumb caressed the juncture where Elijah’s thumb met his finger, and little zings shot through him. Like the sound he associated with the electric lights when they turned on at dusk. Of course, the whole concept of electricity was beyond him.

About the Author: I live surrounded by trees, raccoons, deer, and other woodland creatures, on a mountain in beautiful British Columbia where my fur baby chin poo keeps me safe from nasty bears. Working for the government by day, I spend my nights writing contemporary, gay, sweet, and dark erotic BDSM romances…and while I firmly believe in happy endings, I also believe in making my characters suffer before finding their true love.
