To get us started can you tell us a little about what you are working on or have coming out?
I have three books coming out between August and October. I am very excited about it. I also just submitted book one of a series I am working on, and still waiting to hear. Definitely keeping my fingers crossed!
How would you describe yourself using only five words?
Out-going, extroverted, talkative, caring and maybe slightly neurotic (but only in the sense that I am a perfectionist).
Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
Probably that I hail from a Catholic school background yet I write M/M romance.
Where do you find the inspirations for your stories?
Sometimes an idea pops in my head and then I go with it, but I love to look at pictures and let the pic speak to me. Can be a personal picture or one I see on line that catches my attention.
Coffee, tea or other drink to get you moving in the morning?
Coffee, coffee, coffee…did I mention coffee. I have a regular coffee pot and I have a Keurig right next to each other. I drink it black. No cream nor sugar.
What do you feel is the most important thing that a first-time author should know?
Do not give up! Surround yourself with positive people and those who will tell you the truth.

Jonathon Valient, M/M author, is the owner of www.noothersneedapply.com blog and review site. He is in desperate need of an assistant/reviewer to help him maintain his blog as well as review books. He places an advertisement on his blog in the hopes of attracting someone with an ounce of intelligence to aide him in his dilemma.
Shelton Richards is an English professor at the bottom of the faculty list and is relegated to teaching college freshmen who think they know everything. Shelton is also a big fan of the M/M author sees the Help Wanted and applies. Hired, the two men embark on a wonderful journey professionally and personally as Jonathon begins to write his new novel with Shelton as his inspiration.
Jonathon decided to cook a nice meal for their date instead of going out. Roasted chicken, garlic red potatoes and fresh green beans made up the meal for the night with strawberry shortcake for dessert. The men ate in companionable silence until
finally broke the ice with a safe subject. Shelton
Have you given any more thought to the title of the new book?”
Jonathon put down his tall glass of tea to reply, “Still thinking. Nothing grabs my attention, but it will come to me.” He picked up his glass again, eyeing the young man over it Shelton nodded and spoke softly. “Maybe you can find inspiration while you fuck me into the mattress.”
Jonathon sputtered and tea flew from his mouth. Subtle.
Jonathon smirked and proceeded to carry plates and silverware to the kitchen then returned to wipe the table down. Washing the dishes would have to wait. He grabbed Shelton’s hand and tugged. As they climbed the stairs he knew life would never be the same.
“I have wanted you from the moment you walked through the bistro door,” Jonathon said as they entered the bedroom.
He pulled Shelton into an embrace, nibbling along his jaw line. He felt his soft blond facial hair catch along his own stubble. He could feel Shelton’s body vibrating with anticipation and need as he tilted his head for better access. Jonathon swooped down on his lips and began to devour them, eliciting moans from Shelton. Jonathon continued the onslaught maintaining the pace of the kiss. He thrust his tongue into Shelton’s mouth, running it over his teeth, gums, and Shelton’s own tongue. Both tongues dueling, but Jonathon never gave up control. Jonathon decided enough was enough and tonight he would make Shelton Richards his. Jonathon walked Shelton backwards, never relinquishing his lips until he had to release the man to remove the button down shirt. Damn those buttons, he thought as he attempted to work his fingers down the front of the shirt. Jonathon gave up and yanked, buttons flew and the shirt was off. Shelton rippled with muscles. His abs were tight, the product of daily crunches and five mile runs. The man could be a poster child for a runner’s magazine. Completely lickable and most definitely fuckable.
Shelton grabbed onto Jonathon’s arms as Jonathon reached for the belt on his jeans. Unbuckling and slipping it from the loops, he removed the belt and tossed it towards the chair. It missed the chair and clunked to the hardwood floor with a bang. Jonathon worked his way down Shelton’s neck bringing up love bites from the onslaught of suckling. Jonathon was in heaven. He had never felt such a deep rooted connection with another human being as he felt with Shelton. Dare he believe it could be love?
