Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent’s
new Los Angeles home will be featured in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar and you can check out a few photos of what I assume will be some of the photos, here.
You’ll also see Berkus and Brent posing in several of them. They do this very well…pose that is. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Nate Berkus photo where he wasn’t striking that proverbial pose. But I mean no snark at all. I like Berkus and I remember some of the things he’s gone through in life. And when Tony was going through some serious health issues in 2007, I found Berkus on a talk show by accident very late one night, and listening to what he went through helped me cope a lot better at the time. I actually figured that if Berkus could get through all THAT, so could I.
The couple is showing off their stunning abode in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and it leaves little to be desired. It’s a midcentury lover’s dream, as it was originally designed by John Elgin Woolf, who worked with the likes of Cary Grant. The couple opted for a black-and-white palette throughout, but we’re particularly fond of the mint green 1950s stove in the kitchen.
I often ask my brother if he ever runs into Berkus in any of his travels because my brother is a partner in this design firm and his client base includes Lucy Liu and a few other fairly well known people. But he never does, and I would imagine that has a great deal to do with the type of designs they do.
Real Women in Romances
Here’s a list of a few more Amazon releases. I’m posting them all here on the blog to try and remain organized because it gets a little confusing after a while. And this way when someone asks, I can search the blog and send a link. It’s a nice way of saving yourself time if you are an author and readers want to know something right away.
It’s Nice to be Naughty is actually a hetero erotic romance I wrote where I used a handsome young guy and an middle aged woman who didn’t have the perfect body or a very active private life. I wanted to do something different here for the real people/women who read erotic romance, so they could have something with which to identify. I also made the woman the boss, and the young guy is asking HER for a job. It’s nice to have romances with perfect characters all the time, but once in a while reality is nice, too. And for any gay readers who might be interested, the male main character in this book is one I have a very good time writing about. I also pubbed this under the name R. Field, because it is not m/m or gay romance.
Cowboy Howdy is pretty much self-explanatory from the blurb, below. If you notice, I played it extra safe to add the fact that the main characters are two full grown consenting adults because I’ve learned never to take anything for granted, or to assume anything.
