Homosapien: ... a fantasy about pro wrestling (Revised)
Patrick and David are friends who run a gay bookstore, and life seems simple and safe enough until the day when unexpectedly he walks in - six feet tall, gorgeous and built like a dream. But Homosapien isn't welcome in their world; he's a professional wrestler, and everything he does is fake. So he can't really be gay, can he, or interested in either one of them? Can they even trust a single word he says...?

"This tag team tussle with genre and gender chokeslams and chinlocks the reader into submission." Gideon Haigh, self-unemployed freelance journalist
"The entire thing is highly stylized, radically casual, and completely in character for the narrator. It won't work for everyone. It completely worked for me. ... The book is about identity - identity of self, identity of public personae, the conflict of how you recognize it for yourself and how you respect it in others - and uses the world of wrestling as a backdrop to that. ... this thematic exploration is done with such a deft, comedic touch that I got utterly absorbed by the book and couldn't put it down." Book Utopia Mom, Three Dollar Bill Reviews
"a "classy" novel, probably a step or two above the ordinary production of this time. ... Adam and David's love story starts slowly but goes deep ..." Elisa, My Reviews and Ramblings
"If you're expecting a traditional m/m romance, this isn't the book for you, but if you're looking for an amusing, heart-warming, thought-provoking book this is. While Patrick, her narrator, is awed by the romance that blossoms between his dour, idealistic, intelligent boss and his hero, a flamboyant pro-wrestler, he also explores the true nature of pro-wrestling and discovers the potentially deal-breaking fact that the fights and characters are all scripted. Note, I didn't say "fake" and the difference is very much at the heart of the book." "Is it Real?" blog post by A.B. Gayle
