    Chapter 6

    Sadly, there's no field as diverse as social interaction.... I'm 33 and still get it wrong in some situations. Luckily not catastophically so, but still. @Graeme, thanks for including this exchange about autism. It both enhances Liam as a character (although we really already knew because of scattered observations of his connection to Noel) as well as educates your readers on other people that are normal, yet not the norm.

    Nice twist, being born in spirit form. And I don't recall if all our friends are actually dual natured, spirit-form capable, or whatever their respective species called it. Magnificent story!

    The next part of the puzzle? Spencer goes to bat for Granger m, is forced into retirement, an St Vincent becomes First Lord?

    Chapter 2

    I've been remiss grossly in commenting. But this is a gem of a chapter. Seeing as St Vincent is soon to be First Lord, does that mean he'll indeed be striking his flag? It would be a massive promotion of course, so probably not 😉

    Roar • Part V

    And here I was hoping you were going to allow for poetic license and have Clinton win the election Great chapter: I like the way CJ shows maturity, as well as political savy, but also age-appropriate behaviour. His calmly exlaining to Richie why he wasn't drinking was sweetly brotherly. In hindsight I do have a question about the last chapter: I know and respect the American ideal of small government, which seems to be more universal than a liberal-conservative difference. Calling the government-mandated use of seatbelts government overreach still just seems laughably silly, especially in the context of CJ's beliefs (which are refreshingly diverse)

    Roar • Part I

    Having been interested in American politics for over a decade, even I recognised the Coulter reference Great chapter. CJ keeps making the right decisions in his life (although, should we blame him for Trump's election, after his refusal to actively campaign for secretary Clinton?)

    Chapter 38

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the next chapter of Black Widow. I feel awful about my timing, and the general content of my reviews. You are, and forever will be my most favourite online author. That being said, I do have to say I am losing my patience with the storyline, especially where it concerns the ongoing legacy of the initial Academic Predator. JP's shoes are big to fill, but to have them taken by fetal feet (he-who-must-not-be-named). I have put this out there before, but he-who-must-not-be-named's personal growth was much less described than any other character. To put it bluntly, the way we got to know him, was as him being a sex-crazed, manipulative 6 year old. You did not portray him to be universally savvy as prior generations. Having put that into words myself just now, I realise that may just have been your intention. Nineties kids are obviously different from older generations. That would still not explain JP's acceptance of Will as his successor. I am saddened to say, that I am no longer eagerly anticipating the next chapter/book. I will however keep reading. I hope you will find the time to update the Bridgemont saga soon too again. Apologies for my harsher than usual review, but lots of loving cuddles nonetheless. Maarten

    Chapter 35

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the next chapter of Black Widow. I had been wondering what kept you from updating your stories, both CAP and Bridgemont. Then, some time ago, I turned to the forum, which I rarely visit, and found out you've hit a spot of bother in your personal life, as well as being horrendously busy in your professional life. While the latter wasn't really alarming, or surprising, seeing that your personal health had taken a turn for the worse was. That made the ecstatic dance I did upon seeing this chapter even more outrageous than it would have otherwise been. You're amongst the 2 or 3 finest author GayAuthors has to offer in my book, and I'm a harsh critic, as you well know from my rants against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (who, incidentally, while not even narrating, got under my skin in this chapter ) The intrigue for the book is still not resolved: Who's the Black Widow? Elizabeth Danfield? Alexandra Carmichael? A yet unkown character (however unlikely) I'm especially intrigued by how Wade is /wil be dealing with the issues surrounding the Danfield/Schluter feud. Keep your personal health a priority, but your readers sanity a close second Keep up the amazing work (including the Bridgemont saga) Lots of living cuddles, Maarten

    Chapter 10

    Hi Graeme, Thanks for the next chapter of Leopard Leap. I know I have been grossly negligent in reviews. I can only say I'm 100% behind the story. I've said it before, but the way you write about a developing romantic involvement, be it between a confirmed gay couple (Neil-Liam), or the new couple of Kevin and Warwick, means the world to my kind of gay boy. Even though I live in the Netherlands, I'm never sure about the reaction to the fact of me being gay I came out to my younger (half-) brother tonight. I'm 31, he's 12, I live in the Netherlands. He was always going to be fine with it, but that's never a given. At 12 he's more sure of himself (straight or otherwise) than my (our?) generation ever was. I just wish I couldhave been honest with him earlier. Does anyone have any advise for a confused 31 year old? Lots of loving cuddles, Maarten

    Chapter 32

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the next chapter of Black Widow. I apologise (again) for my lack of reviews. I still keep an eye out for any new chapter. I have been immersed in personal problems, as well as trying to get a feel for where you are taking us. I hope the book won't end anytime soon. I will have to admit He-who-must-not-be-named has grown up and has become a force to be reckoned with. As a Will-hater it pains me to say, but he's been growing up, and he's rightfully put in charge. But let me get more onto the chapter. I hope the Schluter-Cramptons will win out on the upcoming match. Keep up the amazing work. Lots of loving cuddles, Maarten P.S.: Are you still researching for the Bridgemont Saga? No pressure, as I can understand why it would take longer to update that book

    Hi Riley, I am a relatively new fan of your work. I have been dreadfully lax in showing my appreciation though. I'm a 31 year old Dutchie, but only recently out, even in our "alleged" gay-friendly country. My acceptance of myself and coming out hinged largely on reading gay-themed stories such as yours. Your writing is among the best I've read over my personal search, the last 4 years. Especially the fact Luke is casually looking for what kind of boy he'd like to hook up with. As opposed to bedding every boy in sight, lol. I hope you will continue his search in a believable time frame. On the other hand, I hope Simon gets the help he needs. Toby was overwhelmed by teen-hormones. Toby can still be his one true love. Or is that my my more mature attitude shining through; lol? I realise I am being seriously defective in my post, but I needed to let you know I appreciate your work

    Chapter 30

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the next chapter of Black Widow. I apologise for not reviewing the last couple of chapters. I have been distracted, but I guess I will have to admit to bias against He-who-must-not-be-named. He seems destined to be the next JP. He will bring a completely different dynamic to the main character. But let's move on to story based issues. I still believe you're side-lining JJ only more, by detaching him from skating and inserting him in such a steriotypically gay scene as the fashion scene. At some point in the near future I hope you will allow for Jays to show he's actually older than He-who-must-not-be-named. I don't expect that to happen without professional counselling for JJ; to be honest, in a well-to-do family such as the Crampton-Schluters, his psychiatric evaluation could have been kept secret, even in his skating career. This last chapter was just plain cruel, lol. He-who-must-not-be-named VS Brad is (at least to me,lol) the current lynch-pin. Maybe we should have expected the last-sentence outcome, but still:) I was surprised that readers seem to think (can't find whether or not you either confirmed or denied) Buzz died as well. I'd reckon a credible flight manifest would include someone besides Brad and the 2 pilots. I'll put good money on the entire flight plan being fake. I'll apologise again for my lack of reviews. Lots of loving cuddles, Maarten

    Chapter 1

    Hi Graeme, Thanks for the next (I fear last) installment of the Leopards Saga. You've again set up another enticing set of plots. Will Ross be an out and proud AFL player? Will the Brat be drafted, and by which club? Will Neil and Liam see their relationship prosper into their college years? Will Deon be drafted? Can AFL clubs look past Dave's history? Let's see where you take us here..... Lots of loving cuddles, Maarten

    Chapter 40

    Hi Mark, Thanks for the next chapter of HMS Valiant. I have explained earlier that I feel I can't do the Bridgemont sags justice in reviewing every single chapter. The intrigue in British aristocratic history has always been there in this story, but George losing his command just before the appointment of his biggest naval advocate to the position of First Lord) I've been reading up on British naval history) seems to indicate that you intend to focus on the government vs the guild for the near future. I'll have to read more about The Guild. I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving. Lots of loving cuddles, Maarten
