Book THREE of the Boy’s Trilogy. Peter and Tom of Boy’s of the 1950s are now friends of Vlad, the Moscow boy of Russia My Home. They have numerous adventures with their circle of acquaintances. Adventures include Peter and Tom seeing Bette and Barry at the Continental Baths and getting involved in the Stonewall riots. Peter’s son develops strong feelings for a farm boy. The story continues from 1965 to the present day.
Events on a small New England college campus, following an exceptional one. Gil Andrus and his husband, Pete Sordan, follow through.
Chapters will be added Monday and Friday, and the book should finish towards the end of September.
Note: this book shares roots and occasionally overlaps with my other book, Quabbin, which is also set in Waldron, Massachusetts, though in a national clothing company. But they're different books. And Don Burris, from The Pendleton Omens, reappears.
Ryan isn't a singer so why is he added to the band after they had released their first album as the new up and coming boy band of the year? Jasper is certain this is all a publicity stunt by their manager, why else would someone so inappropriate for the position, get placed in with them? While three members of the band are happy to accept this change, Jasper challenges the manager and when their personal situations end up on headlines creating drama, it becomes clear that they are all being manipulated. Jasper finds himself becoming protective of Ryan and developing feelings he didn’t expect towards the sweet and gentle man.
The last thing fitness guru Heathcliff Stone needs is a babysitter, mainly because the one thing he hates more than his name - courtesy of his mom who, to this day, continues to be a Brontë obsessed reader - is for someone to try to control him.
When the most important company endorsing him sends over a preppy looking guy to keep him on a tight leash, his knee jerk reaction is to send the yuppie packing.
Yet, there is something that stops him from putting the figurative boot in the guy’s ass. Aidan Spark is exactly what the doctor ordered.

They had been pulled apart, their mother slowly falling into her mind, when he had been six. But now their mother had died just a month before and her will had asked for them to come together at least one last time to get what she has left behind for them.
They thought they would walk away with a piece of liquidated estate and money for their own lives.
They hadn't expected to find themselves coming back together as siblings.
Reflections of the past, realities of the present, and hopes for the future. These aren't prompts, and anything could wind up here, from poetry to monologues. It's all about words, and the forms they lead us to.
Hiding part of what makes you who you are may sometimes seem necessary. And sometimes you may hide a part of yourself so well that you don't even realise that it exists. Danny Murphy seems to be living a charmed life. But he has a secret; one that he tries to keep so well hidden that he doesn't even want to admit it to himself. However, if he is hiding part of his real self, not just from others but also from himself, is his life really as charmed as it may seem?
The sleepy village of Crumbington is about to get a wake-up call.
When the new chairperson of the Summer Fête Committee pushes to create a naked calendar of the Crumbington football team, mouths drop open. Her further pronouncement at having snagged a celebrity host for the fête—rising television and movie star Clifton O’Keefe, and ex-resident of Crumbington—is met with indifference.
Not by Nathan Fresher, though, local baker and captain of the football team. He had been Clifton’s boyfriend in high school, until Clifton and his family disappeared into the night over ten years ago.
