I just finished the final edits from the last of my wonderful beta/proofreaders last night, and after giving the tweaked ending one more reading this morning, I decided to go ahead and release Five At Table, the sequel to Holding On.

The Blurb:

David and Gun have been together for nearly two years, and 'married', at least in their own eyes, More...

Excerpt - Five At Table - Chapter Five

Posted in Work In Progress on Apr 09, 2012

Here's another sneak peak at a part of Five At Table (formerly “Baby Makes Three”), which will be released next week (I hope). It describes a trip David makes with Tom, the university student he and Gun are mentoring, while the two are still getting to know one another.

David and Tom set out early in the morning to go to Ayutthaya, the old Siamese capital, by train. Gun offered to drive them, as it was only an hour or so away, but David liked the occasional train trip. Thai trains were slow and decrepit, but they were dirt cheap and allowed you to see some countryside and meet the kinds of people that most tourists never encountered. Arriving at the station, they negotiated with one of the small three-wheeled taxis the Thais called tuk-tuks for the noise they make, to take them to the hotel, which was just on the edge of the historical park.

A few days ago I finished the first draft of the sequel to Holding On, which I'm calling Baby Makes Three. This latest book picks up the story of David and Gun, and introduces a third character, Tom. Tom is a young college student the two men decide to mentor, helping him More...

Reflections on Family

Posted in Background, Work In Progress on Feb 18, 2012

I've found myself thinking a lot lately about the concept of family. Not the so-called 'traditional' family, with a mother, father and 2.3 children, a concept I don't think has existed in reality since the 1970s. No, I'm talking about the families some gay men manage to find or create for themselves. Not the 'Modern Family' family of husband, husband and adopted third-world orphan, but a true extended family with not only a couple, but More...

Sneak Peak: First Chapter of "Baby Makes Three" - and Cats!

I've been slowly getting back into the groove of writing, after the twin disruptions of moving and illness. I'm almost back into the habit of writing every day. The thing I'm mainly working on at the moment is a sequel to Holding On, which I'm calling "Baby Makes Three" at least for now [I ended up calling it Five At Table]. You can probably guess at the main theme of the book. I won't spoil it for now, since I haven't even just reached the halfway point as yet.

What I have finished so far includes the first chapter, in which I introduce, among other things, Gun's mother. "Mae", as she's called, raises Siamese Korat cats. Now, when you think of Siamese cats, you almost certainly think of the tan cat with dark brown 'points' on its ears, feet and tail, but that's just one of about five breeds of cats that originated in Thailand. There's also an all-white cat with blue or yellow eyes, or one of each color.

What's Up - January 2012

Posted in News, Work In Progress on Jan 16, 2012

I haven't written much about what I'm up to lately, mainly because I haven't written much. It's not the usual excuse of the holidays, since I stayed in Bangkok for them. No, what's kept me busy is moving, and being sick. Funny how that happened. I signed the lease one day, then celebrated with a bowl of yakisoba at my favorite noodle shop, which gave me a bad case of food poisoning.

This 'happy' coincidence means More...
