Meet the Author

Wynn Wagner is a prolific writer. As of this writing, he has more than twenty books in print. He wrote some and edited the others. One of his novels — Brent: the Heart Reader — is listed on the Gay Book Hall of Fame, www.GayBookHallOfFame.com. The publisher’s web page for Brent is at www.WynnWagnerBooks.com/brent For a decade after college, Wynn Wagner was a radio disc jockey and newscaster in Texas and New York. “I was fired,” he likes to say, “from some of the best stations in Dallas.”

Later he was a computer programmer by trade. In the 1980s, he wrote a computer “bulletin-board system” (BBS) called Opus. Long before there was an internet, Opus pioneered the technology needed to link computers around the world to share files, e-mails, and conversations. Every penny earned by Opus was donated to HIV research and care. It was one of the most widely used communications systems of the 1980s, so it generated a ton of money when few were supporting AIDS and HIV organizations.

Wynn wrote “Day One.” It is an article for those who have just been told they have HIV. “Day One” has been translated into a dozen languages and is the most read article about HIV ever published. You can read the piece at www.AEGiS.org In 2012, AEGiS gave him their Health, Human Rights and Humanitarian Award to mark a lifetime of achievement and philanthropy, especially for HIV and AIDS causes. Dr. Wagner holds an MLA and a ThD.

He is the Coadjutor Emeritus of the North American Old Catholic Church. Before retiring from that group, he was the regionary archbishop of that denomination’s Southern Province. Dr. Wagner is also the past president of the Worldwide Council of Old Catholic Churches.

He and his husband live in Dallas.

    Pretty good

    I loved the concept and the characters but I felt like the wrap up was bogus.
