    Mercenary Captain Torin Covell needs a man who knows his way around a cockpit. Ace pilot Rain needs to get the hell off-planet. Thrown together by chance, the two men form a wary partnership. Torin has every intention of dumping Rain at the next moon, despite his intense attraction to the hotshot. In his line of work he can't afford to trust anyone, especially someone as infuriatingly charming and naive as Rain. But first, he's got a mission to complete.

    What Rain wants, Rain gets. And what he wants is Torin, any way he can get him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sky Riders to be better than the print version?

    Can audio be better than the written word? That is hard to tell. The imagination is always better when one reads the printed word. However, when one factors in one's personal time constraints and the ability to multitask, audio books have the advantage. Without audio books, I would never learn of new and interesting writers and books... you decide which is best. I find them both equally beneficial.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sky Riders?

    The adventure, the passion, the masculine (Manley men that don't mind getting dirty and fighting their way out of a hard spot) men... it was all memorable. Coming from an era when such things were never spoken of or better described as being taboo, it is refreshing, even stimulating to hear the stories that I could only dream of as a boy... Sky Riders, et all, are right out of my childhood fantasies, stories I used to write in my diary, an attempt to exercise the demons of my heart, how was it that Ms. Sutherland read my mind, my soul? I feel, so much younger than my fifty years, after listening to these stories.


    What about Jack Lefleur’s performance did you like?

    Jack made me forget that the story was written by a woman, not that there is anything wrong with that, Ms. Sutherland, all I can say is you have some big ones, well done. Jack, has a wonderful flair for drama and brought the books to life, well done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Firefly/Serenity meets Queer as Folk... Star Wars in the boudoir… What we always knew was going on between Cptn. Kirk and Spok... - i don't think mainstream America is ready for a film based on these books, not without the usual heterosexual rewrite...


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Sutherland you should call me, your descriptions of male on male intimacy needs some fine tuning... real men don't always reach for the lube in the heat of passion, and you seem to be unusually focused on the tube of lube as it were. Fae have you ever been with a man, a man that really turns you on? Then you should understand what I mean... The book, neigh the series was extremely entertaining, engaging and fun. I look forward to the next episode with hardend anticipation. I hope, no pray for a day when a movie can be made from stories like these. Preferably, without mangling the stories interpersonal dynamics with the heterosexual adjenda… You have a new fan Ms. Sutherland; well done, very well done! Highly recommended to both men and boys, fifteen and up.

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

    Would you listen to Tell Me It's Real again? Why?

    A Truly fun emotional roller-coaster, you'll laugh and cry. this is a heartwarming story of true love, the kind we all yearn for.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tell Me It's Real?

    " Tell him it Real..."


    Which character – as performed by Michael Lesley – was your favorite?

    Paul was written from my life, it's as if Klune knew me personnally, the only difference is i've never had anyone fall in love with me. But Paul could be me with only the name changed. every thing about him i can relate to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I've never laughed so hard or cried so deeply, the whole store is one of the best.


    Any additional comments?

    T.J. Klune has a new fan, and Michael Lesley is an outstanding narrator, I'm sure his voice, and feeling for the characters made the difference in bringing the audio version to life.
    What a great read. Thank you! I was kind of sad to have it end.
