Wren is one of “the gifted”—a college sophomore with the power to compel others’ feelings and desires. He uses his power as a game of sexual consent until Cameron, a naïve freshman, enters his life. As Cameron begins to understand his sexuality and gain confidence under Wren’s tutelage, Wren grows to recognize new and unexpected things about himself. Can their game become a relationship as the power shifts from teacher to student?
Good morning Jude! We’re so glad you could join us today. There is magically 25 hours in a day. What would you do with the extra hour?
Thank you for having me, I’m thrilled to be here!
If I had an extra hour in the day, I’d be reading. I’m a total bookaholic, I cannot not read. I’m going to grad school in the fall for an MA in writing and rhetoric in American culture, so I have some idea that that’s going to eat up a lot of my time. An extra hour in the day just for me to get lost in books and other worlds – my heaven.
Who would you want to have as a stripper at your birthday party?
Oh man. This is hard because I don’t know that I’d ever get over my embarrassment! I’ve never seen anyone strip. It’s crazy, because I write erotica, but the sight of naked people is often too much for me, I’m so very in my head. Explicit TV shows are often hard, although Game of Thrones and Outlander are converting me. My best friend and I actually have had a pact since we were 16 that if anyone ever tried to make us go to a strip club, we’d drop everything to save each other! If I *had* to, I’d probably pick Matt Bomer or Natalie Dormer; let’s be honest, these are people you’d never kick out of bed.
If you could snap your fingers and have an invention to do anything you want, what would you want it to do?
A dishwasher unloader. I cannot stand unloading the dishes. I don’t even know why. I like cleaning the kitchen, and I don’t mind loading. But I avoid unloading until it becomes a problem of backed up dishes in my kitchen. My kitchen is tiny and it doesn’t take long for it to become a hazardous wasteland.
If you were a candy bar what would you taste like?
Sweet, creamy and smooth. That sounds very dirty, but I swear it’s not intended to be. I’m generally a sweet person, and pretty predictable. But not boring, so a delicious finish. Obviously, it would need to include chocolate and caramel.
Do you have a library card and know where it is?
I do! I have a beat up one on my car key chain. I’m about to take my kids to the library later today. Oh it’s heaven, it has a great kids play area, and a used book sale section where you can get great classics for $1 or less!
Thank you so much for stopping by. We loved having you!
Thank you so much for having me. This was so much fun!
Wren looks… different. His eyes are wide in what seems almost like surprise. His lips, darker than Cam’s ever seen them, tremble. Cam doesn’t need any of Wren’s abilities to catch that Wren is overwhelmed. The only thing Cam knows how to offer is what he himself would want.
“Kiss me?” he asks.
Beautifully, Wren doesn’t resist. His clothes are rough against Cam’s skin all those zippers are so cold where Cam radiates heat. When Wren drapes himself on top of Cam, his body is heavier than Cam had imagined. Wren kisses Cam softly, seeking something, and Cam wants to believe it’s from a feeling of closeness, something sweet like the gratitude he feels right now. He cannot believe he just did that—that he let Wren do that. Hulled and shaking, Cam lets his hands wander because even after that perfect storm of pleasure, there is an itch under his skin for more.
