A dream comes true.

It started with a story rattling in my head 20 years ago. Several characters created from personalities of people I knew. Some who’d long passed (A few sadly at their own hands.) but the notion to breath life back into their lost future wasn’t something I could let go. A story that had so much of my own life within it, chances to show a world I lived where intolerance ran rapid how to see the beauty in everyone who loves someone. So I created my little world called Steppin’ Out.

The story is based between Halifax NS, and Ottawa Ontario. In the beginning I had decided to call Halifax and Ottawa by pseudo names Curre and Kearney; but then changed my mind.  I felt that it was best to leave the story where it first started.

The story follows the lives of two young men who start their journey with one saving the other, but ultimately they end up saving each other. This story follows them along their life journey in coming out to their community. The challenges they faced. Learning about acceptance, and growing as a couple; not just on their own but with everyone their lives touch.

This is just book one of several. (4 are completed and the 5th is in the works with 2 more slated to be added and possible more…who knows) Each book ties these two people with their friends, their community. How they all face tragedy, learning as a a dynamic group of people in a cruel and sometimes unforgiving world for those from the queer community.  Each book touches on each different set of friends, their dreams, goals and with a touch of magic, fantasy and a touch of drama to bring it all together.

It took me 20 years to complete this bucket list item. My goal/dream. Now I get to see my story sold to those who want to hear it. I almost gave up twice… but kept going when I felt it was for nothing. Today I got to hold my dreams in my hand. Today, I truly feel that I am an author.

I give thanks to my friends; Linda Sejic who did the cover art for my book and
Shaun Vyas from Callisto Printing in Halifax NS who helped get it printed.
and above all Love to my kids Ḉamaya and Bryan for sticking by me while this was all happening.
