This second installment in the Wearing Green on Thursdays series gives Bruce a chance to let loose as he pursues his college degree. Life away from home can be liberating as well as challenging, as Bruce finds out. Sit back, grab your favorite libation and scroll through the pages to see how Bruce navigates his way through his collegiate years, finding out more about himself as he matures. 

Response from the author:

Thanks as always, @kbois. Your eagle-eyed editing makes writing a learning experience for me. Someday (or is it some day?) I'll conquer the commas and slaughter "show, don't tell," but until then, I'll welcome your help in every way. I still have fond memories of our lunch together. :)

The second in the Wearing Green on Thursdays series, we follow Bruce through his freshman year in college to finally obtaining his MBA at age 27.  In that journey, Bruce finds himself with a toxic roommate in a dorm to living on his own.  He not only obtains a college degree in academics, he gets a Master's in relationships!  A wonderful read for the ups and downs he experiences with a sprinkling of social issues and growing up to be an independent adult.  

Response from the author:

Thank you so much for reading and commenting - and reviewing! I'm glad you are enjoying Bruce's life journey. So many of us remember the '80s and either see ourselves in the story, or wish it had been that way for us.

Bruce is entering college to get away from expectations of his parents.  His choice of careers may not please his father.  He is also trying to find an escape from the restrictions on his social life.  He has many lessons to learn from instructors both academic and social.  I enjoyed reading about his adventures and growth in this well written story.  It is an emotional ride thru the life of a university student determined to make a different future for himself. The characters are an interesting collage of good, bad and often seductive.  I recommend you read this.  

Response from the author:

Thought provoking story that follows a young man Bruce as he navigates the issues of being a gay young man in the 1980's. A time when the world for gay men was less accepting, more dangerous, and fraught with all the joys and perils of trying to find love.

If you haven't read the first book in this series, make sure to do so before reading this one, both are well worth your time!!

Response from the author:

Coming Out is the 2nd part of a trilogy and just as riveting as the first volume. 

Bruce's life carries on through university and grad school and we get a close up of his joys and sorrows, his mistakes and his successes. 

This story had me laughing and crying. A superbly written story with characters that come to life and a plot that smacks of reality, both the good and the bad. 

A great weekend binge read. 

Response from the author:

Thanks! I also binge-read on weekends and enjoy other people's stories. I'm glad you are enjoying Bruce's ventures in gay life. There is one more book coming in the series, bringing Bruce into the 21st century and (hopefully) resolving a lot of his issues.
