Gabbo de la Parra


Born a Sagittarius in the fabulous year of the Rooster of ’69, at the hour when his cat was about to become a complete dragon, Gabbo de la Parra landed on the Caribbean Coast of the outlandish Republic of Panama to start the adventure of life.

Love and the Internet brought him to Middle Tennessee to embrace the American Dream and his husbandly romance. Writing has been an important part of his life since a very early age, and it’s a pleasure to share his stories with others thanks to the wonderful opportunities this land provides. His main genres are Historical and Sci-Fi, and he's been combining both lately. Still he dabbles in all genres that embrace hot guys and their search for Love in the most descriptive ways possible.

Close to a manmade lake and in a townhouse (crowded with the spirits of his novel's characters), Gabbo cherishes Life with a southern gentleman, and their pets: black esoteric kitty, Luna; street-smart Russian Blue, Bella; and white emo-twink Maltese, Chance.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The adult answer would be "money." The writer's answer is creativity. Every other minute of my waking hours my brain is bombarded with snippets of stories to come, or for those I'm currently working on; thus, I have to get out of bed to put those ideas on paper (or some other media —sometimes I text them to myself) before they flee to never come back. Age, baby. It's a real thing.

Smashwords book reviews by Gabbo de la Parra

  • Children of the Gods - A Chosen Novel on May 12, 2012

    It amazes me how so many other reviews compare this book with THE HOST and nobody seems to hear the distant echo of THE HUNGER GAMES. Luckily for me, I haven’t read any of these books (I watched the movie, but beyond that, nah) and therefore my perception of CHILDREN wasn’t tarnished by other authors. What I appreciated the most about this book was its conciseness. Although, there were days (within the book) that it seemed like nothing happened, every little step (a touch, a glance, a simple words exchange) built my understanding of the relationship between the main characters. Coming from a Man Down South who writes erotica, the love scenes were mild but sweet enough to keep me interested. Other people might think there were too many of these skin-to-skin moments for a YA book, but in total honesty that line between what is YA and Mature is downright blurry. Many PG13 movies have a lot more violence and skin in comparison to this book. Even if many background details were swiftly explained or altogether omitted, I grasped the story from beginning to end. I felt somehow cheated with the almost rushed last chapter but it didn’t bother me so much as to say it diminished my appreciation of the story as a whole. Books written in first person aren’t my cup of tea, especially when it’s a girl doing the talking because in many occasion they seemed not just naïve but immature. Not the case here. Reka might be young, but she knows enough of life to understand (if not fully, at least, coherently) that every action has a reaction. Hey, we have to accept she is a girl in love, and Love usually fogs your ability to be rational and act like an adult, even when (technically) you’re not one. I recommend this book if you want a story that’s interesting and doesn’t drag you around with unnecessary flourishes. I received this book thanks to The Nexus group ARR program.
  • Thunderbolt Torn Enemy of Rome on Sep. 08, 2012

    HISTORY BUFFS REJOICE! For a reason I cannot yet fathom, I entered Malco Barca's life expecting a manly romance. There were a lot of manly characters but this is not a romance. Wonderful historical fiction yes, man-on-man romance no. And it's not the author's fault, he never advertised THUNDERBOLT as such. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa. This doesn't imply you will not find delicious boy bits ravished here and there, in superbly well-carried love scenes. Nevertheless, what didn't make me love this story (more) was the constant depiction of battle strategies and maneuver details. This made the story kind of History schoolbook-ish for me. A simply matter of attraction. If you are a history buff and love sexy scenes thrown in the middle of the discourse, this is the book for you.
