Josh Aterovis is a dear friend of mine who was good enough and smart enough to get his mystery series published. The main character is Killian Kendall who tries to not only stop the bad guys but somehow squeeze a love life in. Follow him as he grows up and learns who he is, while solving crimes along the way. Longtime readers will also recognise Jake Sheridan as half of the stars of Breaking Masks, due to be released in 2012.

I discovered Allison Burnett on a flight to Europe, and I laughed all the way. His character, BK Troop, is hilarious in his novel 'Christopher: A Tale of Seduction' and if you want to know what to get me for the holidays the other two books will do!

The story was intricate and well developed with full, lush characters. Set in a fantasy world this was worth the read and deserves a spot on your shelf.

I had the pleasure of meeting Nico Medina, the author of Fat Hoochie Prom Queen, and discovered not only a great guy but a fun author. Nico's main character is an overweight senior in high school who is happy with who she is, deals with her crazy family and her favorite gay boy toy, Lucas. Everyone should have their own Lucas! Nico also authored The Straight Road to Kylie, which I haven't read yet.

Brian Sloan was another author I had the pleasure of meeting, and this books was very unique in style and scope. Our two heroes post messages like an online diary detailing the summer they spend figurung out just who they are. Brian is also the author of A Really Fine Prom Mess.

A bold group who forms a gay straight alliance just wants to be left alone, so they make a club they think noone will want to attend...The Geography Club. Brent also penned a sequel to this fun story.

Alex Sanchez writes stories that I wish I wrote. They are sweet, real and detail the positive nature people can show us if we give them the chance. They are so worth your time.
