Stacy: Today we’re here with Colton. He’s just flown in to New York City after being away from several years. What’s it like to be back after so long?
Colton: It’s amazing. I can’t imagine having been away that long. It’s like nothing has changed. Even though my whole life is different, the city still hums with excitement and possibility. I want to do things differently this time around. I want to take a bite of the Big Apple as they say. I know what I want out of life. I’ve seen other places and tried other avenues and this is what’s right for me.
Stacy: But what about your sister?”
Colton: I love my sister, I really do. But she’s an adult and if she finds herself unable to do without me she knows were I will be. I spent too many years trying to help her put her life back together after our parents died. I didn’t object when she made me her pet project because when we were talking about blind dates she wasn’t sobbing. She’s my baby sister. How do you tell them no when they are hurting. I know at some point she wasn’t hurting anymore but it was far too late and the situation had snowballed. In the end, I reached my boiling point like everyone can and that was that. She’ll be fine. I try to think of it as the final shove out of the nest…again.
Stacy: I know she’ll be fine. So what are your plans while you’re here in New York City?
Colton: I flew in last night and even though it’s been less than twenty-four hours, plans have already changed a lot from what they were. My overall goal with this trip is to find a job. That way I can move back and build myself the life I thought I would have by now.
Stacy: Is that all? Sounds like a boring week to me.
Colton: Well, like I said plans have changed and I don’t want to speak too soon but there is someone who seems like they could make this trip a lot more entertaining. All work and no play, after all. But that’s all I’m going to say on that.

About the Publisher
Supposed Crimes, LLC publishes fiction and poetry primarily featuring lesbian characters and themes. The focus is on genre fiction–Westerns, Science Fiction, Horror, Action–rather than just romance. That’s how we set ourselves apart from our competitors. Our characters happen to love women and kick ass.
“Supposed crimes” refers to the idea that homosexuality is outlawed, and that our authors are being subversive by writing. As times change this becomes more tongue-in-cheek, but can still apply broadly to our culture. Christians writing lesbians and men writing lesbians are also subversive ideas in this industry, and we promote people bending the rules.
