Trilogy
Glamour is a Celtic-Scottish word originally meaning to cast a spell. 

The Glamour Galore Trilogy is a literary saga that takes place in the extended present in the Boston vicinity with excursions to Aruba and Provincetown. These three Gay novels are escapist froth intended to make you laugh while you ponder the human condition. All three books are connected by a cast of colorful individuals drawn from many different walks of life; from the theatrical world of drag performers to the staid confines of old Boston families. The characters develop in depth as their dramas unfold throughout the books, revealing hidden secrets that refuse to stay buried.  These individuals come together and sometimes collide in dramas spiced with histrionics and tangled by emotional conflicts that require reluctant soul searching.   

The first novel, The Family Jewels, is a mysterious treasure hunt searching for an exotic ensemble of Egyptianesque jewelry that has gone missing. The story see-saws between the absurdly comic worlds of glitter drenched Drag Queens at The Club Crazy and the arcane ambitions of the Chilton clan of Boston Brahmins who lust after an immortality of Egyptian grandeur. These dynamic opposites compel the characters towards a climax enacted in the secret “Sibuna” tomb at Mount Auburn Cemetery where the lives of all those who dare to violate that sanctuary of gloom teeter on the brink of doom.  

The second novel in the series, Naughty Astronautess, chronicles the first Drag Queen astronaut, Lilly Linda Le Strange, who for years has gone way beyond the confines of gravity in her relentless pursuit of stardom. La Diva does eventually blast off, from an unlikely launching pad at the Fenway Rose Garden where Muriel Brunelleschi, the mayor’s wife, is hosting her annual garden party. Diva Le Strange is fueled by an overabundance of Chutzpa which unfortunately fizzles out when her Twinkle Star Ship goes kerplop into the Muddy River. 

The Glamour saga concludes with The Mermaid and the Sailor. This romantic romp is set in Provincetown, that El Dorado of Gaydom where true love can be as elusive as fabled gold. However, the dream of hitting the Mother Lode of adoration and hot sex keeps all concerned on the prowl looking for the perfect mate - some even straining their ears for wedding bells. Woven into and entangled by all these emotional machinations, our familiar troupe of thespians, The Glamour Gang, are attempting to create and perform their latest theatrical hallucination, The Mermaid and the Sailor. This rehash of Wagner’s Ring Cycle adds super spice to super heroes who bring down the house when a forty-eight ton yacht, The Pirate’s Curse, crashes into the back stage of the Keel and Rudder night club where Mermaid is playing. 

The Family Jewels: Book One of the Glamour Galore Trilogy

The Family Jewels is a gay comedic mystery novel set in Boston. The characters incorporate all strata of society from sparkling glitterati drag performers at the "Club Crazy" to staid old Boston families of Beacon Hill. The Story see-saws between the absurdly comic and the horrific, pumping the story with the energy of many unanswered questions. This leads to a climax enacted in the bowels of the earth inside an Egyptian tomb that absorbs the lives of those who dare to violate that sanctuary of gloom.

The Mermaid and the Sailor: Book Three of the Glamour Galore Trilogy

Darling Glamourites, Lilly Linda Le Strange has paddled off to Provincetown with her talented troupe of hoofers, the Glamour Gang, their camp followers and hangers-on. One month into her sojourn in Sodom by the Sea, La Diva was arrested and thrown in the hoosegow for shooting a cormorant on the breakwater in Ptown Harbor. She did not go easy. For years I have been threatening to finish the Glamour Galore Trilogy with a romance story and here it is, The Mermaid and the Sailor! But after the above opening remarks, you may be asking yourselves, “what does that have to do with romance?” Well, wait until you read chapter 14, Sex on the Beach is not just a Cocktail, That’ll get you going. Although sometimes a smooch or a roll in the hay may happen in a flash - even without introductions, true love takes a lot of maneuvering. So I’m giving you forty-seven chapters of heartfelt hoopla before anyone even thinks about church bells. After that get out your hankies because the happy ending is bound to make you cry. Here is your chance to pick up a sizzling chanteuse and make her sing. Read all about it in The Mermaid and the Sailor.
