Well, to say I was surprised by this very untypical, non-fantasy release would be the understatement of the Year! This book shows a whole different side of the very gifted author that is Sean Kerr. From Dead Camp to a sweet and funny read and I’m not talking about the apple pie… If anything this wonderful written short story shows that you don’t need to be a model to find love, so never doubt yourself even if you are a middle aged slightly overweight gay man, whose best years long gone, or so you think… There’s always the one that loves you exactly for the person that you are!
Thank you Sean Kerr for this whole different reading experience and I really would like to read more of the softer side out of your writing cave!

The Birthday Present by Sean Kerr
Making apple pie can be such messy work.
Ronald feels old, washed up. As a middle aged gay man on the scene, he cannot help but wonder if his time is over. His frustrations are further exacerbated when he finds himself the victim of a group of thugs who seem to find it funny to torment him in his own home.
Ronald is planning a party, a summer celebration of his middle age, but as he begins the preparations in his hot kitchen, a Policeman turns up to question Ronald about the attacks. Over the course of the interview, Ronald comes to understand that perhaps age is just a number after all.
