Crash Pad by @whitleygray #gay #erotic #romance

Happy Friday, everyone! Today I have a special visitor! Author Whitley Gray is here to share some news about her latest release, Crash Pad. What's more, she's agreed to answer five nosy questions from me. So let's get started!

Hi, Whitley. Welcome!

    1.    Why do you feel “called” to write male/male romance as opposed to male/female, lesbian or polyamory?

In short, I love men. I’ve written M/F romance in the past, and always found myself identifying more with the hero than the heroine. The dynamics of a M/M relationship are so different, and more appealing.

    2.     Your story High Concept dealt with a detective suffering from PTSD. Did that involve a lot of research for you?

Yes. I have a medical background, but this is a subject outside my usual purview. I have a friend who is a forensic psychiatrist. A lot of the information about the disorder, treatment, and management of back-to-work came from that source.

    3.     While writing your contribution to the Campus Cravings anthology, Artistic Endeavor, you were able to go back in time (in your imagination) to those New Adult times. Was that a fun experience for you?

I was able to revisit my college years, yes. It was fun, but it also brought back how much uncertainty there is when first striking out on your own—going away to college and having to be responsible for yourself. No curfew, no parental supervision.

    4.     In your book Rabbit Wars, you explore a “second chance at love” romance between two men who had once been involved. Why do you think the second chance theme is so appealing to readers?

I think we’ve all got a “one that got away” in our pasts. Sometimes that one was The One, as it was for Ash and Jeff. Neither had truly moved on. It’s a common experience to think about “what if…” and imagine what might have happened had things turned out differently.

    5.     Please tell us more about your new release CrashPad! We’re all ears!

Physician Remy Marshall has two loves: Emergency Medicine and running. Work doesn’t leave much time to meet guys, and most seem more interested in his bank account than him. With a week off to train for a marathon, Remy plans to make the most of his precious vacation. The last thing he needs is a distraction.

Jamie Sutton is new to the area. He hopes to make a fresh start after leaving an abusive relationship with an orthopedic surgeon. He’s got a new job as a massage therapist and wants to meet some nice guys. Against his better judgment, Jamie decides the best way to meet a cute rollerblader he’s seen in the park is on wheels.

With attention on his watch and not where he’s going, Remy crashes into Jamie and fractures the first-time rollerblader’s ankle. Jamie has no one to help him after the injury; Remy proposes Jamie stay with him. Jamie is reluctant, but it’s a better option than staying with the odd guy in the neighboring motel room. As the two get acquainted, Jamie’s past comes calling. Remy discovers the prize he really wants isn’t a medal in a marathon, but the man right in front of him.
