Let’s connect! #LGBT #SF


I’m visiting San Francisco in August and, besides this being a dream vacation, I’d like to connect with LGBTQ groups to discuss my SF and HARVEY MILK inspired book, NEVER BLEND IN.


I want to make time to give readings or take part in interviews or discussion panels…open to suggestions, so please do get in touch.


NEVER BLEND IN is the first in a potential series of books on achieving personal authenticity.


This first groundbreaking, inspirational and vital book of exclusive celebrity and deeply personal non-celebrity interviews, is aimed primarily at a young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning audience. The book, however, is also of value to educators, parents, family and mental health professionals seeking insight into the LGBTQ experience.
