About the Book

Geo is a poorly closeted Lit Professor on the rebound when he first sees Dima stripping and working the pole, and with that one look Geo is forever lost. A backstage trick turns into a treat of a date for the two broken men as they go out after the show, when the Angel of Fate adds her unique magic to the standard pie toppings and transforms a mere pizza pay date into a blessing of promise, and a chance for redemption and love. What should be a simple transaction of sex for money turns into something not so simple. From seemingly out of nowhere, as if by literal magic, suddenly now there is love, hope, salvation and the need for two men to take a chance. When Fate is in the mix, all bets are off the table, and the bookmakers had better run for cover on that day when the long shots finally do come in. Reciprocal need unleashes all the forces of the male psyche, both dark and light. Passion, needs, wants, desires, and the eternal drive for an alpha to rise to the top all come together to make for a story full of magic, hope and surprises aplenty. This illustrated love story reassures that the magic at the heart of every love is still alive and well in Boytsown, with a thrilling fantastical tale of romance as Geo and Dima take a roller coaster ride from Russian white nights to the darker side of gay male love.

About the Author

am so pleased to be able to include my pictures and drawings along with my stories. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then surely these pics are good at saving space! Besides, what fun is a story book time if there are no pictures to go with the tale? Why, that’s like cookies without milk! I would never sink so low! The people I draw come from my life, the images and important relationships in my life. I take joy from brining my sketch book all around Boystown and Chicago. If ‘Center City’ seems familiar, and if you have spent any time in Chicago, now you know why. In all my drawings I use simple pencils, paper and crayons. From the most basic of ingredients, I hope you enjoy the flavors and colors I cook up and make for you. And I hope you are pleased by my efforts to make you pictures to go with my Fairy Tale story books. This is the humble art of a humble man. Forgive me that I know well that they are creations that are far from perfect companions for my flawed lovestories. But, since it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, I hope you will enjoy them along with my stories just the same. I beg of you to forgive my hope and audacity to think that you will find these pictures I draw for you better than just leaving a nothing void of a blank page. It seems like such a waste of paper and space no to try and fill it up nicely for you all. Milk for your cookies is what they are. Forgive the frail ego and the clumsy hand. My heart and hand meant well. A Salud.
