I am truly thrilled to announce my short story “Chez Gisele is Born” has been published in Deep South Magazine. The humorous story is a novel excerpt from my second novel,, “I ♥ Gigi.” Please share this link to find out how three little scrawny gay boys changed Lafayette’s gay history. It’s hilarious. http://deepsouthmag.com/2014/03/chez-gisele-is-born/
The play and the book celebrate the life of Gisele “Gigi” Carriton. I have to think Gigi is in heaven, smiling. Thank you Rick Rowan for your fantastic, artistic vision of my play. You and the cast have taken it to a new level. Last night, the guest
audience at dress rehearsal laughed, cried, and hooted and hollered their approval. Thank you Ted Richard for all your hard work as producer and the PRIDE festival for choosing and supporting my play and book about Gigi’s life. I know we’re going to have an awesome three-week run and my heart overflows with happiness at the goodness my artistic endeavor has brought to fruition.
