When fourteen-year-old Will Barnett meets his Uncle Sean, whom he has not seen since he was six years old, Will is instantly captivated by his uncle's beauty and begins at that moment to fall in love. That such love is dangerous and forbidden, young Will is only vaguely aware. While trying to understand what his feelings mean, he is driven to write about his Uncle Sean and begins with these words: "Uncle Sean sure is pretty, but there's something wrong with him, anyway."

"Donaghe's magic in crafting this tale was writing Will's journal in the voice of a fourteen-year-old...The book is so realistic that one wonders what has become of Sean and Will since the box containing Will's journal was stowed away in the barn thirty years ago...The novel is a natural for high school and publics libraries."

When best friends Tom Allen and Joel Reece attend a country/western dance to celebrate the beginning of the summer vacation, heavy drinking with their high school friends and a drunken kiss between the two boys causes all hell to break loose. Later, when their kiss turns into much much more that same night, Tom and Joel are set on different paths, attempting to understand what the new turn in their friendship means. A preacher's son, Tom Allen turns inward with guilt and shame; but Joel Reece, confident of his own feelings and brought up to believe in himself, tries to win Tom's love. Whether the two friends succeed in resolving their differences is made much more difficult by all those who witnessed their drunken kiss at the dance and who now suspect them both of being queer.

The time is 1965 and the setting is in southwestern New Mexico, in the small farming town of Common.

“Reading some novels is like meeting somebody at a cocktail party, enjoying the chat and never seeing them again. Other novels become like friends whose company is enjoyed over and over. Such a book, for me, is Common Sons.”—Patricia Nell Warren, author of The Front Runner and The Wild Man

In The Blind Season, the sequel to the best-selling novel Common Sons, Joel and his husband, Tom, decide to start a family. Knowing that two gay men will never be able to adopt, they decide to find a surrogate mother to carry their child. What they find is a lot more than they bargained for.

Sharon Minninger, a beautiful and determined runaway from a Mennonite community near Nuevo Casas Grandes, Mexico, offers to carry their child. Her influence has more impact on their lives than the couple could ever have imagined.

Joel and Tom discover that the backlash of their decision to be fathers is much worse than expected. They are unprepared for the venomous reaction from some of the less open-minded citizens of the small southwestern New Mexico town, and in particular a nefarious religious organization new to the small town that will stop at nothing to get the child.

Dr. Blake Edwards has found it; the elusive 'holy grail' of recent medical science is his. He has discovered the cure for cancer. Dubbed a genius by colleagues and academics worldwide, Dr. Edwards creates cures for Novatek Pharmaceutical. Looking into his microscope, he silently rejoices. He has done it-a promise kept, made to the woman he loved on her deathbed and his demon defeated. His discovery is so monumental the chronicles of medical history will embrace his name forever. Millions of innocents, ravaged by the fatal disease, will be saved. Or will they? A clandestine society, the Patronums, self-proclaimed protectors of the 'American Way of Life," predicts Blake's cure would be financially crippling to the United States. Extreme measures must be taken to contain the information. The formula "Elixir" is suppressed, locked surreptitiously away. Until—twenty-five years later—Emily Cantrell, daughter of the reigning President of the United States, is leading in the current presidential race. The polls suggest she will replace her father as the first woman president. Unbeknownst to all, she has contracted the deadly disease. Carl Phoenix, son of the prominent Governor from Texas, accidentally intercepts the fatal diagnosis. So do the Patronums; they intervene by providing the Elixir to the favored candidate. Carl stumbles across the cover-up, which dates back three administrations, to the highest form of government and industry. The information he has threatens the very existence of the democratic society in which he lives. He vows to expose the injustice. Who can he trust, where can he run? Carl doesn't know the answers, but to save his life, run he must—for the Patronums are closing in.

The oil has been there forever. Billions of barrels lie fat and petulant in Tamyr, daring the Russians to realize their dream of economic parity. But Europe won’t buy Russian oil. They remember the Bear.

An idea takes hold, to awaken the discarded Soviet sleeper agents still in America. They will re-ignite old ties to the Islamite terror gangs. Together, they will raise the price of oil, save Russia, and fund Al Qaeda in the coming war of terror.

Gomez is tasked to escort Viktorina Viisky, purportedly with some Russian Ministry or other. More administrative folly. But Viisky, also, is no administrator. She is leading him, clumsily, to ex-Soviet agents who were planted in America in the eighties and left to rot.

Viisky spins a tale—that the sleepers have awoken—are once again involved in their Cold War sponsorship of the terror groups. Indeed, it may have something to do with the Towers.

Gomez puts it together quickly—the sleepers, the oil, and Nine-Eleven. Now, he must unravel Viisky and find Stuart Rafkin, before Nine-Eleven leads to…One Oktober.

Pat Kelly is thirty-one, smart, good looking, and well educated; but as a teacher going nowhere, he is looking for some excitement and adventure. One, day, Pat has a serendipitous encounter with Tim Oats, a former student-now a homeless street urchin-and feeling sorry for him, Pat invites Tim into his home. He soon realizes that something isn't quite right about Tim: He can't keep a job, he has clashes with the law, and he's a little too needy. Pat's debts mount up quickly as he tries to help Tim, who flagrantly and destructively flaunts society's norms. Nevertheless, Pat is irresistibly drawn to Tim and tolerates his often reckless and egocentric behavior, but Tim remains emotionless, secretive, and solicitous. Eventually, Pat starts to wonder whether Tim is capable of any emotional attachment to anyone and is plagued by the idea that their first encounter wasn't serendipitous but planned. These doubts gain substance as evidence emerges that Tim has all the traits of a human predator. . .
