I am sorry, but this is the first time that I have responded to any of the stories on Gay Authors and I am saddened that more people have not responded. There are a lot of potential storylines and plots that keep running through my mind. I am a gay man who happens to be a father too and I found every story of the series quite compelling. For instance: I was always wondering why Ricky and Pat couldn't seem to find companions? I was hoping tha the Kylie and Ricky thing would eventually work out becaus I have had several friends who have either moved to other parts of the world or who have had eventual spouses move to the States with them. Pat also started out in life in a way that made him quite a loner, and, due to his parial blindness and scaring, I hope that the message that one can be successful in a continuing long-term relationship would eventuallly appear. I think more interest would be generated though if you switched narators. Since the New Generation has begun, it would be better, at least in my opinion, if someone else, such as Danny or Trey started writing about the experiences and events about the family. Since Trey wants to be an author, it might make sense that he would write about the further adventures of the family and put a different twist on the family and its antics. Many time, I found Josh to be too anal in his approach to things and I would have considered some of his musing kind of neurotic. I just love this series too much and there so much furtile ground to work with and by calling it an different name, such as "Danny's Diary" or "Trey's Treasures" would leave you the freedom to cover a lot of different ground. I want to see how Danny, for instance, sees Josh and his aging as he takes on so much in his life. Will Josh and Jake be able to finally go off and take long extended vacations and do things on their own? Will Dion become a great success and will he and Trey have to deal with the possibilities that they will be spending a lot of time away from home, family and each other due to great career success? You mentioned Ricky having a co-worker who got drunk with him after he blew that deal before Thanksgiving, thus eliminating his bonus. Is there any more to that relationship? What happened to the Yamadas? There's just so much there and you do not have to follow the same set up. Yes, the stories will need to start off with explanations that will cause some readers to go back and read the series, however, these characters are very rich and in depth. I have been thinking abou a lot of these things and more because I tend to love series like yours, Mark Aurbour's Chronicles of an Academic Predator and The Society Boys on NIfty. I have also read some of your other stories and I thoroughly love them! I live off of permanent disability due to AIDS and reading stories, such as yours, keeps me from being lonely and depressed. I can't afford to go to movies but this is a perfect forum because I love reading. I know that this is lengthy and I would love to write some more, but I believe you are so busy. Thank you for you writing and I look forward to you future stories!
