I was just informed that my 2014 novel No-Accounts has been awarded the Indie Book Award as a finalist in the general fiction over over 80,000 words category. The book was earlier given an Eric Hoffer award. Celebrate with me.
No-Accounts, like all my fiction, is drawn from fact. At the height of the AIDS crisis, I volunteered to work with dying AIDS patients. Over a five-year period, I took care of seven men, all gay. They all died. The experienced moved me so deeply that I wrote a novel about it.
