Meet the Author

About the Authors Sexy, sassy, sissy scribe David Andrusia divides his time between the East Village and East Hollywood while updating his books New York Hot & Hip and L.A. Hot & Hip, part of the travel series Vogue called "the hippest." David's Gay Europe (Penguin Putnam/Perigee, 1995) was the first gay travel tome from a major American publisher and a Barnes & Noble Readers' Catalog Selection. He's also the author of the celebrated career guide The Perfect Pitch (Warner Books) and the upcoming Branding Yourself (Ballantine); his book Natural Healing for Your Baby and Child (with Andrea Candee) came out from Pocket Books in summer 1999. This GWM stands 5′11⅛″, weighs 160 lbs., and has flaxen hair and aquamarine eyes. Please respond only if your name is Sergio or Yves. Hot and handsome Haas Mroue (5′10″, 150 lbs., 33, brown eyes and hair) has published his poems, short stories, and travel articles in magazines and journals in the United States and Europe; his work has been broadcast on the BBC World Service, New York's WBAI radio, and Starz! cable network, among others. A graduate of UCLA Film School, this GWM has lived in Paris and London and is currently at work on a screenplay and a novel. His first book, Beirut Seizures, was published in 1993. He divides his time between San Diego (where he plays) and the Olympic Peninsula (where he writes). He can be reached at haasmro@aol.com. Donald Olson is a novelist, playwright, and travel writer. A busybody both home and abroad, this GWM (6′, 160 lbs., blue eyes, full head of blond hair, gym-trained body) has contributed travel stories to the New York Times and many non-sexually explicit national publications. He's the author of guidebooks to Oregon and Berlin, as well as The Complete Idiot's Travel Guide to London for Macmillan Travel. His gay novels include The Secrets of Mabel Eastlake, Paradise Gardens, and A Movie. Bantam London published his last novel, The Confessions of Aubrey Beardsley; his play Beardsley has been produced in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and London. Queer Corners, his new novel inspired by the anti-gay-rights battles in Oregon, was published by BridgeCity Books in June 1999. With his name, Todd Savage figured that a lucrative career as a stripper, porn star, or sex-advice columnist awaited, but to save his family some grief he settled on the life of an itinerant writer. This blue-eyed, salt-and-pepper-haired, boyish 33-year-old Chicago GWM has played tourist in his own town as the author of and/or contributor to Frommer's Chicago '99 and Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Chicago. He also contributes to Chicago Reader, the Chicago Tribune, Chicago magazine, The Advocate, and Town & Country.
