About the Characters

by Lynley Wayne

The first time Cameron Reyes appeared in my head I was in high school. Back then he was still a teenager with anger issues and a need to protect others. Over the years, I’ve watched him grow up. More than once I attempted to write his story, but it was all to no avail. I tried mystery. I tried fantasy. I even tried comedy. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon the gay romance genre that I found a place for him.

The moment Seth Dempsey stepped on the page in, Rocky’s Road, I knew he was who I had been waiting for. Seth was strong and stubborn, but most importantly, he had a huge heart and I had no doubt that he could love Cam, rough edges and all. Seth wouldn’t judge him because of his past or blame him for things beyond his control.

When I realized I was actually finished with this book, I had conflicting emotions. I was relieved to have it done, since it had taken me twice as long as I’d hoped. At the same time, I was extremely sad to be saying goodbye to Cam. I felt almost as if I were losing my best friend. Knowing he will be happy and safe with Seth goes a long way.

With this book, more than any other, I feel as if I’m sending my only child out in to the world for the first time. So I hope you guys fall in love with these two guys as much as I have.

About Facing Demons

Cover art done by: Cooley Design StudioAt the age of fifteen, Seth Dempsey gave his heart to Cameron Reyes. Three years later, Cam shattered it when he walked away. When Cam blows back into Seth’s life years later, Seth knows he will do whatever it takes to ensure Cam doesn’t slip away again. Even if it means going up against a corrupt DEA agent and a drug cartel.

Cameron Reyes was born on the wrong side of the tracks. He fell in love with Seth, but knew the only way to keep him safe was to leave, no matter how much it hurt. Eleven years later, when his life implodes, he knows the only person he can trust is the boy whose heart he broke all those years ago.

While they fight to stay one step ahead of everyone and clear Cam’s name, can they learn to work together in order to face down the demons of the past and find the happily ever after they have dreamed of?

About Lynley Wayne

ATL_Lynley Wayne_BWLynley Wayne is the pen name of a thirty-something female living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. When not writing, she can usually be found reading and thinking up creative ways to avoid housework. She is married to a very understanding man who doesn’t complain when she spends hours in front of the computer, or talks for hours about whatever story she’s working on, or asks random off the wall questions. He also keeps her fed on those occasions when her muse has taken over and she loses days at a time. Yeah, basically he’s vying for sainthood.

Lynley strongly believes everyone is entitled to their own version of happiness, no matter how it may differ from the norm. She writes characters she wants to read and hopes others like reading about them as much as she enjoyed writing them.

It is her hope that one day society will be able to look past the labels and see the person behind them. That they will realize we are all the same. Until that time comes, she will continue telling stories of a love others may believe is wrong, but she thinks is nothing short of beautiful.
