Mingled Destinies of Crocodiles and Men (In Progress)
SubSurdity: Vignettes from Jasper Lane
Jasper Lane is the perfect, sunny, American neighborhood, or so it would
seem. Melinda Gold is a young mother whose desire for position in the
neighborhood is at odds with her upbringing by her ultra conservative
mother. The same mother who makes life hell for Melinda's son, Patrick;
Cassie Bloom is the grand dame of Jasper Lane, living on a cul du sac and
doing her best to annoy Melinda. But she has a secret of her own regarding
her missing husband and son that only a few, including the transsexual
Vera, know about; Rick has just moved into the neighborhood and has
immediately fallen for the ex-Army man, James. Will he find the courage to
go after what he wants?; Terrence, Rick's good friend, has found out he
has a son from a one-night stand years before where he dallied with
heterosexuality; and the perfect couple Steve and Sandy have run into a
rough patch which forces Steve to find employment in the porn industry.
All these stories interlock and play out in a brightly comic way with gay
porn parties, sexually confused animals, and dead bodies all being thrown
in the mix. It may not be perfect, but it sure is fun!
The Rest is Illusion (2006)
Lambda Literary Gay Men's Debut Fiction Awards
A coming of age story with a supernatural bent, The
Rest is Illusion is set on the campus of Verona College, a small liberal
arts school that overlooks an ancient river valley. The story centers on
five students at critical points in their lives. Sarah, a young woman at
odds with everything her parents stand for; Ash, a mysterious genius who
stands out in a crowd; Dashel, a young man with a mysterious illness; Tony,
a promising football star with a hidden secret; and Wilder, a manipulative
son of a noted politician with designs of his own. Their individual stories
join and intertwine over the course of a week - one week that will change
each of their lives forever. An unseen force that surrounds the college,
living deep in the woods, amplifies their challenges, and as the entity
increases its hold on the lives of the characters, things begin to unravel.
For some, the change is welcome and long sought, but for others, change will
prove a catalyst to a terrifying end.
