FOXE DEN (A Skyler Foxe Novella)
CREATESPACE (paperback), December 2012
Foxe Den follows high school English teacher Skyler Foxe and his friends throughout the holidays, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. Along the way, Skyler gets to inflict his mother on his boyfriend Keith, meets Keith’s parents, and just generally tries to navigate the treacherous waters of a brand new relationship. Unlike the novels, this novella hasn’t any mystery to solve. It’s the sort of stuff that happens between characters once the book cover is closed; a gift of “DVD extras.” This novella comes right after Out-Foxed, and before Foxe Fire.

FOXE DEN 2
Just like the original Foxe Den: A Holiday Collection, there is no mystery to solve in this novella. Skyler Foxe is a high school English teacher, now out and proud. He’s “Mr. Foxe” to his students and just plain “Skyler” to his posse of friends and his boyfriend, high school football coach Keith Fletcher. In Foxe Den 2: Summer Vacation, Skyler and Keith offer a beach party for the Gay-Straight Alliance kids; two gay teens have an intimate moment in their own story; Skyler’s friend Mike de Guzman experiences Skyler’s favorite gay bar, Trixx; and finally, Skyler and Keith go on a backpacking trip. This is a book of little extras, what the characters are up to when we don’t see them between the pages of a full novel. They have so many stories to tell that a full novel cannot contain them!
