Suzanne Brockmann Presents a new series of category romance novellas set in Southern California, written by Jason T. Gaffney with Ed Gaffney. 

Short, spicy, and funny, the California Comedy series puts the comedy in rom-com.

First grade teacher Terry O’Dell is thrilled when he’s chosen as a contestant on Fixing Our Future, a popular reality web series where the winner raises money for charity. A few weeks of light-hearted challenges and fun competition is exactly the kind of distraction he needs to get over his breakup with his fiancé. But when Terry learns that handsome landscaper Frank Vacca is another contestant on the show, his excitement turns to dread. Because Terry’s ex ran off with Frank’s ex. It’s only a matter of time before their embarrassing personal history is exploited by the show’s producers, in hopes of going viral with on-camera tears and maybe a table flip or two.

But Frank is not the kind of guy who waits for life to happen to him, and he decides to fight fire with fire. When their secret is exposed, he impulsively declares that he and Terry are better than ever, because they, too, have hooked up—in fact, they’re engaged. Already popular, the pair instantly becomes internet royalty. Of course it’s all a sham, and only a matter of time before the truth comes crashing down. But then, Frank and Terry—long at odds and constantly arguing—actually begin to fall for each other. And that’s when things really start to go wrong… (33,000 words or 140 pages)

About the author

Jason T. Gaffney is waiting for the sound of the Tardis to ring out, calling him and his husband Matt to travel through space and time. Until then, he enjoys storytelling. This comes naturally to him as the son of New York Times bestseller Suzanne Brockmann and Edgar Award nominated author Ed Gaffney (who is now Jason’s writing partner). Even Jason’s sister, Melanie Brockmann, has penned several books. (This family, right?)

       Jason began his storytelling journey as an actor, when he realized—at age seven—that being on stage gives you the best seat in the house. Since then, he hasn’t looked back. He recently expanded his acting playground by turning to film, where he co-wrote and starred in the award-winning LGBTQ feature-length movie, The Perfect Wedding, a sweet boy-meets-boy rom-com. Watch for his appearance in the upcoming LGBTQ thriller, Russian Doll. 

       Recognizing that he hit the jackpot with his equality-minded family, Jason hopes to change the world so that no LGBTQ kid ever needs to fear coming out or loving the person they love. He decided the best way to help make change happen was to write stories set in a world where LGBTQ people are not only accepted but respected, valued, and loved. He plans to keep acting and writing and trying to make the world smile for millennia to come.

Before he began his career as a writer, Ed Gaffney spent the better part of two decades working as a (secretly hilarious) lawyer, most often as a court-appointed, criminal appeals attorney. Thanks to the help and support of his wife, New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann, Ed began writing critically acclaimed legal thrillers (his latest, Enemy Combatant, was nominated for an EDGAR Award). He then turned exclusively to collaboration with family members, and has since co-produced and co-written with Suz (and occasionally with their son, Jason T. Gaffney) the stage play Looking for Billy Haines, which ran off-Broadway for 10 weeks in 2010, the award-winning LGBT romantic comedy The Perfect Wedding, and the lesbian thriller, Russian Doll, which Ed also directed.

       Most recently, Ed has been working with Jace on his California Comedy series of LGBTQ romantic comedy novellas. He especially loves the comedy in romantic comedies, and the equality in writing books where love is love, and love always wins.

       A long-time LGBTQ-rights activist and ally, Ed served on the board of MassEquality, the organization that helped win marriage rights in his home state of Massachusetts.

Suzanne Brockmann Presents a new series of category romance novellas set in Southern California, written by Jason T. Gaffney with Ed Gaffney. 

Short, spicy, and funny, the California Comedy series puts the comedy in rom-com.

Attorney Mike Davis has just about everything he’s ever wanted—a great job and a beautiful condo in LA. Basically, he’s all set—except for the fact that romance disappeared from his life some years ago, and hasn’t been heard from since. So when a work assignment brings him to the small mountain resort town of Dancing Elk, the home of his estranged childhood crush, Mike expects his nonexistent love-life to go from bad to awkward mess.

Handyman and amateur photographer Jeremy Schofield grew up in sleepy Dancing Elk, and got used to being left behind when vacations ended and the visiting families went back home. As a child, Jeremy lived for the long, lazy summer days when his best friend Mike was in town. Mike was his match in so many ways—he’d even learned sign language to communicate with Jeremy, who is Deaf. But the year they turned seventeen, both Jeremy and Mike fell under the spell of the same boy, and at the end of that summer, when Mike left, he left for good.

But now Mike’s back, and he surprises Jeremy by asking for his help in repairing an important client’s estate. When the two old friends work side-by-side, sparks fly and passion ignites as a kamikaze bat, a collapsing floor, a stray alpaca, and an elderly woman with the worst plumbing in California conspire to bring them back together.

First published September 2018

"Some big black guy grabbed a cop’s gun and shot him."

This is the message given to Sean Macklin—a white lawyer with a troubled past—when he’s assigned to represent Letroy Carson. Letroy has been found guilty in the attempted murder of a white policeman, and he’s challenging his conviction. But there’s a problem: Letroy, who sustained life-threatening injuries in the confrontation with the cop, has no memory of the incident.

So Sean does what Sean always does—he heads for the scene of the crime, and begins to investigate. This takes him to Stonefield, Massachusetts, a predominantly black suburb of Boston, where he meets Letroy's brilliant sister, Destiny.

At first, Destiny is shocked at Sean’s ignorance of the role that race plays in the American criminal justice system. But it’s not long before she realizes that despite his white privilege, Sean is a fearless advocate for his clients. Because with each success in Letroy’s case, Sean himself becomes an increasingly vulnerable target of the hatred and prejudice that have so long plagued the lives of black Americans. And yet, despite false arrests and multiple attempts on his life, Sean will not give up.

But finally, the ugly and powerful forces aligned against Letroy and Sean successfully keep Sean out of the courtroom during Letroy's second trial. And all seems lost... 

Until Destiny steps in.
