Brand New Mackenzie Twins Story!

I’m thrilled to announce the release of a brand new Mackenzie Twins story – Tempestuous Voyeur.

As many of you probably already know, most retailers won’t touch a story like this one with a ten foot long pole. For many years I figured there was little point to writing any more stories in this series because I wouldn’t have any way to get the stories into the hands of the readers who were interested. A new retailer has hopefully changed that. allows authors to sell directly to readers with a simple little link on their website.

As soon as I saw others taking advantage of the new service I knew I had to write another story about my twins. I hope you all enjoy reading a little more about the Mackenzie twins as much as I enjoyed writing about them.

The male body.


Outside of Smithville, life for the Mackenzie twins is getting better. Starting over isn’t easy, but Dominic and Mason are doing their best to get by and stay together. Although Dom landed a position easily, Mason is left struggling to find work. Despite the lack of career prospects, he revels in the freedom to be honest about his sexuality and embraces the local gay community. Making new friends comes easily to him. When one of those acquaintances discovers the secret side of the brother’s relationship, Mason and Dominic use the only assets they own to ensure his silence.

Only $2.50 at the following retailers:

Mason was feeling no pain as he unlocked the front door of the apartment and led Theo inside. He turned on the living room light and hung his keys up on the key rack hanging on the wall by the entrance. “Dom! I’m home.”
Theo shut the door and shed his jacket. “Is there somewhere I can put this?”
“I’ll take it.” Mason accepted the jacket and rested it over the back of the rocking chair by the door. They hadn’t had much extra cash since the move so the only furniture in the living room was a couch and the wooden rocker they’d picked up at a secondhand place over on First Street. The rocker generally doubled as a coat rack. “Why don’t you have a seat on the couch there and I’ll go find Dom.”
Theo’s butt had barely hit the sofa before the bedroom door flew open and slammed into the wall. Dom came storming out dressed in nothing more than a loose pair of cotton gym shorts. “Where the hell have you been? My dick’s not going to suck itself.”
Theo’s jaw dropped. He stood and looked back and forth between Dom and Mason.
All the color drained from Dom’s face as his gaze landed on Theo.
Nervous laughter burst out of Mason. “Surprise. I brought a friend home to meet you.”
Theo’s intense gaze zeroed in on Mason. “Did he just say…”
“No!” Mason interjected before Theo could finish speaking. “Well, I mean, he did say that, but he was just kidding. Dom’s a real joker.”
“That’s right,” Dom agreed. “I was only teasing Mason.”
“Uh huh.” Theo eyed them both with suspicion.
Mason wanted the floor to open up and swallow him. He couldn’t believe this was happening again. One of his friends catching them back in Smithville and outing them was the reason they’d needed to move. Now history was repeating itself. Oh God. Dom was going to kill him if he didn’t find a very tall bridge to jump off first.
Dom crossed his arms over his chest. “This has been fun, but it’s late and I have to work in the morning…”
“Dom’s right,” Mason said. “I’m sorry, but you should probably go.” After all, Dom couldn’t kill him while a witness was present.
Theo cleared his throat. “Neither of you are fooling anyone.”
Mason trembled. Fuck. He couldn’t go through this shit again. He just couldn’t.
Dom’s scowl deepened. “Who the fuck are you to come into our home and cast judgment? You don’t know us. You don’t know anything about us. Why don’t you take my brother’s advice and get the hell out of here?”
“I will. After I’ve said my piece.”
Dom glared at Theo. “Fine. Say what you have to say and then get out.”
Theo nodded. “Fair enough.”
Mason fidgeted. He had no idea how Theo could stay so calm in the face of Dom’s anger. If life was a cartoon, steam would have been coming out of Dom’s ears.
“I realize this is awkward for the two of you, but I have a proposition that might make things a little easier.”
“What’s that?” Dom barked.
“What do you mean?” Mason asked. Short of erasing Theo’s memory, he couldn’t see any way out of this. Someone knew about them. They weren’t safe. Maybe they never would be as long as they continued to love each other as more than siblings.
“I’m sure the two of you would like for me to walk out of here and forget what I’ve learned. And I will. For a price.”
