Lem  1. The Backdraft Engagement

There are currently no reviews.

Lem and Mattie have been best friends, and neighbors, since they were little. Both raised on Montana ranches, they grew up in a world of 4H and Rodeo, but Lem finds himself insatiably attracted to Jeff, an older boy that just moved in.

Lem soon after discovers that he is also the object of his best friend's desires. It's a truth that blows up in both Mattie and Lem's faces, as Mattie finds himself seriously depressed, and Lem finds himself lost without his best friend.

This is a story that I started back in 2007 which was originally posted on the Nifty Archives.

The story is still available there, in it's completed form, however what is posted here will be an updated edition of the narrative that will better tie into the companion story, tentatively entitled "Shadow."

A new, updated chapter will be posted every two weeks or so. They will be updated, and some will include new content.

I am grateful and humbled by all of the compliments and letters that I have received over the last several years--thank you all.

Please feel free to drop me a line and let me know your thoughts.

User Feedback

I absolutely love Lem!! It's probably one of the best books I've read, and definitely the best gay novel I've ever read!

I wish I would have waited for the updates but I went ahead and read it on nifty.

You really are a talented writer & I can't wait to read your other work ^.^
