Why I Wrote… Why I Still Do
by Davidson King
I wrote Snow Falling because I dreamed I could. I was told I couldn’t, I was told I wasn’t smart enough, educated enough, I wasn’t capable. So, I wrote it. When I finished and published it, it felt like I was slapping down all the negative people who told me I couldn’t.
Then something happened. I realized I could do it. I was good enough. I had more to say. So, Hug It Out came to be. I loved introducing people to the characters in my head. When that released I held my breath. Was I fooling myself? I wasn’t. People actually liked reading my words. I admit to crying several times out of pure joy and relief. I felt like Sally Field saying, “You like me, you really like me.”
AND THEN something more happened. It became a need. I HAD to write. I had to tell the world about my universe. My characters started screaming, “ME. DO ME NEXT. MY TURN.” When I don’t write it feels like a pressure in my veins. When my fingers move over the keyboard it relieves it.
Writing was a dream I achieved and now I need it. Sometimes I sit and think, “How was I literally living half a life all this time?” At 38 almost 39 I am fulfilling my dream. I am all lit up and living it.
That is why I will write until the voices silence.
About A Dangerous Dance
Finally working for a man he can trust has given Bill a new purpose. His boss, Christopher Manos, commands respect and absolute loyalty, and Bill has proven himself worthy of a seat at Christopher’s table. Becoming best friends with Christopher’s husband, Snow, has further proven his allegiance and cements a place for him in the Manos family. When Snow’s life is in danger, Christopher places his full trust in Bill to destroy anything and anyone that poses a threat to his husband. But hunting and wiping out the enemy for the safety of everyone Bill cares about means partnering with the one person he has vowed to never see again.
Mace wears a mask of vain cockiness and uses his model good looks to his full advantage. Known to many as Without a Trace Mace, he’s a deadly assassin well known for wiping out whole families and getting away without a trace. With a dangerous past and an unknown future, Mace uses his veil of conceit to keep others at a distance, rarely trusting anyone. When his boss, Black–the one man he trusts above all others—gives him his next assignment, he learns his newest partner is none other than Bill, the man he’d do anything to avoid.
With the safety of the Manos family on the line at the hands of a brilliant maniac, Bill and Mace begrudgingly put their differences aside to ensure Snow, and his loved ones, are protected from harm. With their lives in grave danger and the clock ticking towards zero hour, they navigate deathly perilous situations and uncertain outcomes, hoping they survive long enough to keep the Manos family safe.
Bill and Mace’s traitorous hearts draw them closer together no matter how hard they fight the inevitable. With the lives of their loved ones hanging in the balance, they find themselves in the middle of a dangerous dance. But when the music stops, will they both be left standing?

An Excerpt from A Dangerous Dance
“Billy Boy!” Mace said loudly with a clap, making Snow jump.
“Well, if it isn’t fuck face Mace.” Watching Mace’s smile fall and morph into anger made my entire week. If I was going to find any joy in this job, it was going to be repeatedly knocking that pretty boy off his self-made pedestal.
“Let’s put the pissing contest off for a later date.” Black’s gravelly, booming voice was powerful enough to make you snap to attention. But I couldn’t help myself. I shot Mace a wink and joined Snow when he sat on the couch.
“I’ll rip those eyes from your head while you sleep, fucker,” Mace whispered so only Snow and I could hear. I knew Snow was about to go rabid, so I beat him to it.
“You assume I sleep.”
Mace wanted to say something else, but when Christopher slapped a folder on the coffee table between us, it was all business.
