I am a New York-based author and teacher and a strong LGBTQ+ advocate, particularly for youth. I grew up in poverty, dropped out of school and was sometimes homeless, but eventually was able to complete graduate school. I have worked in civil rights advocacy and taught philosophy, law, and eastern religions. I'm available for readings and public speaking and writing workshops with youth.
I created the Gabriel's World Mystery/Thriller/Queer Fiction series -- It's Time for New Heroes. The series has four books--The Hanged Man, Two-Faced Woman, The Book of Joel, and Dead for Now.
Gabriel Ross is the main character in the series. Gabriel is a brilliant and intuitive private investigator in his thirties, a strong and compassionate advocate with his clients. He is Buddhist, intellectual, strong-minded, and skilled in boxing and Baguazhang. The other main character is Joel McFadden, a bisexual artist, Gabriel's boyfriend. The stories involve Gabriel's dangerous cases and Gabriel and Joel's relationship.
Gabriel's World offers a compelling community of characters, in stories that explore the extremes and complexity of good and evil. The stories feature strong LGBTQ+ characters and mature, adult themes.

The things that make a book enjoyable to me are, a believable plot, descriptive enough so that I get a sense of the characters and environment. I don't want to read six paragraphs on what the characters are wearing. When I read a book I want to be transported into the story effortlessly. So saying all of that, I'll just say that I started reading THE HANGED MAN yesterday morning and did not stop until I finished. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next volume. Thanks
