I like to read books that deal with issues I can relate to, tackling the big as well as the mundane questions facing humanity and particularly the LGBT community today, from parenting, family relationships, love, loss, but also difficult subjects like our environment, trafficking, child abuse, racism, global warming, aging etc.
I like to read books that deal with issues I can relate to, big as well as small. I’ve always preferred books that end on a positive, hopeful note, providing closure of sorts. I write the kind of book I like to read, a book that makes me think, a book that takes sides, leaves me in tears, makes me laugh, and that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside when I’m done; or simply put, I write stories you’ll remember.
Before you dash off to your next destination online, please feel free to have a look around.

My latest blog post:
The story about Martin is different. Very different. And as so often with my writing, I might mention The Fallen Angels of Karnataka, the initial story changed into something else. In this case, it was my research trip to Korea which pre-empted the changes. I’ve mentioned those before. Returning to the Land of the Morning Calm is a much more light-hearted story, full of love, friendship, romance and hope. It is that without shying away from difficult topics, such as gay darlings like “coming out”, homophobia, HIV, but also racial issues, #MeToo, love and relationships across time, cultures and generations.
