    Enjoyed Ivy’s Twisted Vine. Well executed storyline. Do you plan on writing any more interracial bw/wm books? Those are my faves.
    Liked your blog till I reached the part about your preference of Boston over Phillies. Can’t go there, I’m Bronx born and bred. Obama’s win still brings a twinkle and tear to my eye. May God watch over him and his.

    Latrivia, I’m with Sweet Pea. I can’t believe that you’re such a Boston freak. You should conform before it’s too late. Your book was awesome. Can’t wait for your new one. Also, you should really post some new pix of you. The Save the Ta-tas post was hot. Yum Yum.

    Latrivia, I really enjoyed the story and the chemistry between Brett and Courtney in “The Grunt.” Is there any chance you might write about the way an interracial (BW/WM) relationship plays out when both hero and heroine are working in another country/culture, not surrounded by the social dynamics they’d face back in the US (maybe a gung-ho, young, white Marine stationed at Atsugi NAS, and a young, black, woman of the world, freshly graduated from her undergrad and teaching English in Tokyo?). Thank you for all you do!
