About the author:
C.C. Williams says: "My love of the written word began when I learned to read at the age of five-instilled by my parents who were voracious readers of anything from a biography to a Zane Grey western.

Writing came soon after. Inspired by Asimov and Tolkien and house-bound through frequent illness, I turned my small hand to the epic fantasy. Well, it was fantastic, but hardly epic! But the bug had bitten. Thanks to great teachers in my school years, I honed my skills through journal entries, serialized stories and several stints on school newspapers. Then I discovered boys ...

Growing up in a smallish town makes one very aware of one's differences. My attractions to my teammates and school friends became fodder for my imagination with illicit thoughts feeding my dreams and fueling my pen.

College brought escape and exploration not only on the printed page but also in life. Able to choose who I wanted to be, I set upon a course that continues to draw me forward even now-two decades later."

After moving several times about the country and Europe, C.C. Williams currently resides in the Southwestern United States with his partner JT. When not critiquing cooking or dance show contestants, he is at work on several writing projects.

A finalist in numerous writing contests, C.C. has had his work appear in such collections as Brief Encounters, Frat Boys, Best Gay Romance 2012 and Wild Boys, all available from Cleis Press, as well as The Love That Never Dies: Erotic Encounters with the Undead from Renaissance eBooks - Sizzler Editions.

Authored by C.C. Williams

No-vi-ti-ate (no-vish'e-it,-at') n. The period of being a novice. Ten stories, ten waypoints, ten steps along a path. The stories collected in Novitiate represent the first leg of C.C. Williams' journey from a sometime storyteller to a published writer. From the sweet, simple beginnings portrayed in Midnight; to a rough and rocky courtship in Busting the Greenhorn, an AllRomanceEbookstm Category Best Seller; to the dark and edgy psychology of The Prisoner, a Best Gay Romance 2012 selection, C.C. Williams portrays men facing their most difficult challenges--their own hearts--when confronted by something deeper, more permanent than what they had initially sought.
