Jacob and Marcus, an interracial interfaith couple, are fighting about everything: coming out, monogamy and marriage. Then one dark night, they encounter the Golem who has protected Jacob’s family for generations. The giant but handsome man made of clay and dirt saves their lives, and his kiss just may save their relationship.
Q: What was your inspiration for Kissing the Golem?
A: We had been writing about new couples, and we decided to try our hand at a romance story featuring a long-standing couple that was in conflict. We wanted to try that challenge.
Q: Why the Golem?
A: The Golem is a long-standing figure in Jewish mythology that has infused American culture. Numerous comic books have either featured him specifically or have been inspired by the Golem. We thought it would be interesting to explore if he could do more for people than just save them from marauders.
Q: Why would lesbians write about gay men?
A: Because it’s fun.
Q: Do you ever get stuck on the differences between men and women?
A: We are blessed with some male friends who are willing to answer some very personal questions. Actually, they seem to really enjoy answering our questions.
Q: What makes your story different from every other gay male romance story out there?
A: Besides featuring a big man made of dirt and clay, the story explores the significant dynamics of a Christian/Jewish/African-American/White gay male couple that is either going to break up or get closer. The story also explores the family dynamics that surround them.

Danielle Summers is the pen name of an interracial interfaith lesbian couple living in the American Midwest. They have many years of writing experience between them and love writing erotic romance stories. Some feature gay male couples because some stories are just better suited for two men. Other stories are better suited for two women. They don’t write many straight love stories because that would just be too queer.
