Signature Feature: Cole Matthews

Renee Stevens

185 views

So, with the new year, I like to see what features I can add. This year, I decided it would be great to try and feature our Signature authors once a month (when possible). So, to get this feature started, let's take a look at some stories by @Cole Matthews! I'll be picking three stories to share from each of our signature authors, and it would be great if the members would weigh in with what their favorite story is from that month's author!  I'll only be sharing complete stories, so if it's a story that you've read, why not go and leave a review on the stories main page!

A former bartender and restaurant cook, Cole is now a paralegal for a nationwide law firm. He loves writing mysteries, love stories, and tales about
gay men and their view of the world. Currently, he's working on a novel/mystery which is called So Weeps the Willow, a story in three parts.
He's also going to Florida to do research for his next novel, set in the Sunshine State. He collects antique cookbooks, gardens and loves travel and biking.

It's hard to pick my favorite of Cole's stories, but two that particularly stand out to me are The Bachelor Farmer and Jager.  Cole's stories pack an emotional punch, and he has a way of bringing memorable characters to life.  Ben and Rush from So Weeps the Willow and several other of his stories are probably my favorite characters of his.  The Art of Being Gay is a fun, light-hearted read.  You can't go wrong with reading any Cole's stories.  :)

Thanks so much!  Yeah, I'd have to agree, though Randy loves the 1550 Loring stories a great deal too.

I started with Porcupines. After I  finished it I knew I had a new favorite author. The Art of Being Gay is still my favorite. And Jager will always be special to me as I had the honor to beta it and something I gave him inspired Cole to write the story. Better read all his stories, though. :)

Thanks Addy!  The little rocking horse is still one of my favorite ornaments.  It was quite the inspiration.

I've read pretty much every story Cole has posted, and enjoyed each one. It's hard to pick a favorite... I fell in love with the characters in Button, but The Art of Being Gay was the one I most enjoyed, not just for the story, but for the wonderful interaction with Cole and the other readers during it's posting. It was a terrific reading experience. Starting with Porcupines, and right through the list, whether a short story, or a multi chapter epic, you can't go wrong with a story written by Cole Matthews. :)

Button is one of my absolute favourite stories on GA

It's certainly a favorite of mine as well.  Thanks so much!

As others have said, it’s hard to choose a favorite. I’m partial to So Weeps The Willow, but there is so much to love in Cole’s oeuvre
