Growing up, Jason Stern led a charmed life complete with devoted sisters, a father who was one of Brooklyn’s most respected rabbis, and a mother who made the world's best babka. He headed to NYU ready for anything—except falling for the wrong guy, coming out, and getting disowned by his once-loving family. In spite of that, Jason managed to graduate with honors. He's got friends who treat him like family, and he's proudly running the largest LGBTQ teen shelter in Manhattan. Life is good, but he's still falling for the wrong men.
When charming, sexy Quinn Fitzpatrick begins work at the shelter, Jason falls hard and fast. Quinn is tall, blond, funny—damn near perfect. Only if Quinn’s gay, even he doesn't seem to know it. If he does, he's not telling anyone. And he's about one ceremony away from becoming a Catholic priest.
Long hours of work turn to long nights of talking and laughter, and Jason dares to hope this time he's falling for the right guy. But Quinn's got a past to deal with and major decisions to make about his future. When Quinn leaves for a silent retreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.

I know a lot of authors will imagine a certain actor or model as they’re writing their books, but I almost never do that. My characters tend to pop into my mind with their own unique look. When I write about them, it’s as I see them in my head. That’s how they look to me and to each other.
When I get asked who my dream cast would be, I have to really think about who has the right look to go along with what I’ve imagined. I have a doubly hard time with this question because a lot of times the personality of the celebrity I’ll choose doesn’t align with my character.
For MOMENT OF SILENCE, both of the main characters, Quinn and Jason, have been secondary characters in the earlier books in this series. Although they had minor roles, I already had a very clear idea of what they looked like before I started writing their story.
For Quinn, my dream actor would probably be Chris Pine (although Mr. Pine would have to agree to lighten his hair several shades as Quinn Is a very light-haired blond). What sells me on Chris for this role are his eyes—he has the exact kind of impossibly blue eyes that I tend to get lost in and Jason definitely shares that fascination with me.
For Jason, I’d have to say Adam Levine. But without the cockiness Mr. Levine exudes when he’s front man. Jason has a quieter, more shy sexiness. But he has the same wiry but muscular build, dark hair, and assortment of sexy tattoos. He’s way hotter than he thinks he is.
I can’t post photos of these celebs but here are some images that come close to how I see Jason and Quinn when I think about them.
