I was inspired to write the book because I wanted to write about two men who really love each other. I wanted to write a very, unique gay story. Something that is unheard of. In my writing, I always strive to be different and unique. I thought writing about a Korean, homosexual male would be interesting and I do find some Korean men beautiful. As I was writing the story it just began to unfold. The story was suppose to be much shorter. I always lengthen a story because I always come up with more creative ideas, after I finish what is suppose to be the final draft. The story will appeal to readers around the ages of 18-30, mostly woman and gay men. It wasn't hard writing my book at all. It was easy. I just feel hurt sometimes because I know a lot of people are not lucky to find true love. I hope this books aspires gay men of all ages and ethnicities to not to be afraid to be who you are. My heart hurts so much from seeing the cruelty bestowed on them. I think everyone should have the right to love who they want to love. Love is a beautiful thing and it is the strongest force in the universe. So I just hope to share my views and opinions with the world. My readers are like family to me.
