WE Coble is a war baby with East-West parentage. He writes stories with gay themes, supernatural tones, and strong, women-centric points of view. He often travels among Philadelphia, Washington, Raleigh, Saint Petersburg, and Mountain View, which is his current home, to stay connected with his family of friends. He was once asked by his late grandmother, “Why do I get older and you don’t? Did you make a deal with the Devil?” He replied, “Grandma, I’m Buddhist.”
Two men tied together by an inescapable fate. For one this means a sign of destined love, for the other a loss of control. When their fates intertwine beginning in a Buddhist temple, will it unite them or drive them apart?
