Beauregard Boudreaux is a native of New Orleans Louisiana, born and raised there, he never thought he would ever stray far from home. The untimely death of his first love left Beau lost, adrift, looking for a place as far away from the pain as possible. Initially, he came to New York to visit a friend, the city growing on him, so he decided to stay. His law degree comes in handy at the LGBT Center he runs, but his bar is his baby.
William Richards grew up in Chicago, his family oddly normal and very accepting of his sexuality. Modeling paid the bills, gigs across the country as a model, male entertainer and a personal trainer giving him the opportunity to see the world. He hasn’t experienced loss or pain as Beau has, the common denominator between them is the loneliness. As All Cocks big, brooding bottom Connor, William has found friendship, family and an outlet for his craving to be more submissive than men of his size and stature usually are.
The two men are perfect for each other, their tastes and lives align and the writing seems to be on the wall. But Beau has a secret he shares with a choice few, a secret that not only threatens to keep them apart, it’s deadly. Determined to keep a wall between himself and William, Beau fights the attraction, pushes William away every time he steps closer. Can one man’s determination and strength be enough to tear down a wall that holds back decades of pain and darkness? And if he can, will either of them survive the flood?
Disclaimer: This book is the fictional story of a man living with HIV. I have put a lot of time and effort into presenting this story as true to fact as possible, without going into gory or gruesome detail. If this subject is a trigger for you, you may want to skip this read. But my hope is that you give Beau a chance to capture your heart as he has mine, and William’s.
Part 3 Prism
Do you do research for your books? If so, what does that entail?
Yes I do. I’m a huge fan of merging reality with the fiction. Every book in the All Cocks stories is rooted in fiction somewhere along the way. Gay for Pay is based off of several conversations I had with a couple of gay porn stars at GRL in Chicago. With Fame and Fortune, I blended a couple stories of people I know and love to create Mattie’s painful past. In the latest book, Live for Love, I talk about HIV/AIDS and how you can have a successful relationship with one pos and one neg partner.
I like writing about places I’ve been and things I’ve done as well. Chris is from Alabama originally and in his book he visits a graveyard in Tuskogee Alabama that I have kin buried in. The Monster bar in NYC is mentioned in several of the books, I’ve partied there. It’s fun to research places and actually go there, then you can share the reality of that part of the story with a keener detail.
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
Live for Love is my ninth book! You might as well ask me which one of my children is my favorite, I love them all equally.
Do you hear from your readers much? What do they say?
All the time. Generally it’s comments on the books, they loved the story or the character. And my personal favorite… when’s the next book out?
Are you working on anything at the present you would like to tell us about?
I am mapping out the next All Cocks story at the moment. This will be Dusty (Ashton) and David’s story and the title of All Cocks book 6 will be ‘Hide and Seek’.
