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
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

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.More
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

I started writing Journey's End a few weeks ago, and I think I'm already 30 to 40% done with the first draft, with several key parts already written. I'm afraid work has slowed down considerably since floods hit the part of Bangkok I live in. It's odd, really. In theory, I have lots of More

A little over a week ago I got started on the third and final book in my "Journey" series, which will be called Journey's End. I'm probably about a quarter of the way through it already, and I'm pleased with how it's going so far. This story brings Piero and Plai from Journey to Angkor together with Henry and Kung from Journey to Rai-Lay for a grand More
I've more or less finished the first draft of my latest book, which I'm calling "Deconstructing David", at least for now. As it stands, the book is right at 41,000 words, or about 120 pages if it was a printed book.
The story is told from the point of view of David, a 40-something American living in Bangkok, and facing something of a mid-life crisis. After more than a dozen years living in Thailand, he has More
So, I'm writing again. It's becoming something of an addiction, as I had planned to take a bit of a break before diving into the third (and final) book of the Journey series. But a new idea took root in my head, and it seems that now I'm in the 'habit' of writing, story ideas continue developing and bouncing around my head, becoming increasingly distracting, until I write them down.
I didn't really think this current More
