|Ruth Sims has lived her entire life in conservative, Republican, tiny-town Midwest USA surrounded by corn, wheat, and soybean fields. It's a strange place indeed for a Liberal Democrat to have sprouted. Like Emily Dickenson she's never seen a moor and never seen the sea but she's seen plenty of silos, Amish buggies, whitetails, and amber waves of grain. She'll battle anybody who says the flat, fertile land of the Midwest doesn't have its own kind of beauty.|
Though many years past schooldays, her education is continuous and far-ranging, with interests ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, from Shakespeare to groan-inducing puns and limericks. Her library has many shelves of history, biography, drama, and reference books. Her special love of drama is apparent in The Phoenix, and her passion for Classical and Romantic music comes to life in Counterpoint: Dylan's Story.
Words, imagination, books, music, and writing have always been the means by which she could slip into more exciting lives than her own. When the chance finally came for her to write full-time, she was able to focus on the stories that have been in her head for years. Her many characters are thankful to escape; it was getting crowded in there.

The publisher says, "In Ruth Sims' beloved contemporary fairy tale, "Tom or an Improbable Tail," a lonely gay lawyer's cat spends six months of the year in the shape of a hot twink. Of course, our owner happens to be closeted at a very conservative law firm. Dare he want more than a pet?"
The author from whose demented brain the story came, says of the tail... er, tail: "A brain with a zipper, a beautiful naked young man who isn’t exactly what he seems, and a lawyer who hates to make decisions…”

This is the tale of the naked god/boy/man William found in his apartment. When he told it to me he swore on his mother’s grave that every word was true. The oath didn’t mean much, though, as I knew his mother was alive and well and playing the slots in Vegas. There are a few things you need to know about William before you read his story.
One: He hated making decisions. If his mother would come every morning and lay out his suit and tie and socks for him it would make him happy, as long as she didn’t stay long enough to nag him.
Two: Well, actually, it’s part of No. One. He’s a lawyer because his father wanted him to be a lawyer and he didn’t want to bother making a decision about what he wanted to be when he grew up if he ever did. Lawyering was okay. It paid damn well, and there was a certain snob appeal to being with Rutledge, Rutledge, Kirkwood, Jones, and Connaughton. He didn’t yearn to be a white Johnny Cochran or a reincarnation of Clarence Darrow. Which was good, because he did corporation work. Mergers, contracts, corporation minutes of meetings that never took place, that kind of thing. “As the corporation goes so goes America,” Rutledge Senior was fond of saying in stentorian tones. That gives you some idea of RRKJC. William often said he was the only one in the office who didn’t starch his underwear.
Besides being indecisive and not very ambitious, he was cursed with being ‘cute.’ He hated cute. If he thought shaving his head and wearing a nose ring would help, he’d have done it. But RRKJC did not allow lawyers with pierced noses and he did have bills to pay.
RRKJC was so conservative they made the millennium Republicans look like “bleeding-heart flaming liberal pinko card-carrying members of NAMBLA” as Connaughton put it. William wondered what they’d do if they knew that he was gay.
He knew what they’d do. They’d soil their $900 suits, that’s what they’d do and then they’d can him.
Now that the background is out of the way, on to the good stuff which will involve the beautiful naked god/boy/man and… well… Maybe you need a little more background first. Be patient.
