Vicky Banning by Allen McGill is now available in e-book format!
Vicky Banning is many things to many people, making friends with smooth aplomb, but quick to recognize chicanery and deceit. Drug pushers and crooked politicians come under her scrutiny and — posing as a Madam, then as a reporter from The New York Times, complete with a Streisand Brooklyn accent — she manages to charm them into jail time.
Having started life as a pampered child, Vicky views the world as her playground and causes havoc at her “finishing school” in Boston before she returns to her parents’ grand home in Westport, Rhode Island. There she meets her future husband who, with British stiff upper-lip, leads her into the exciting world of show business and travel.
Gay lovers Roger and Steve become Vicky’s closest friends. But even they don’t know her completely. She keeps mum on her efforts to smuggle endangered children out of Europe to the U.S. during WWII, and their aftermath.
Whether she is nearly arrested at Mardi Gras for impersonating an undercover policeman in drag, or masquerading as one of her many alternate personalities of the Countess of Comedians, or simply playing the grandmother while helping a boy keep his dog, Vicky lives life to the fullest. Join this fabulous lady on a zany romp through a whirlwind world of show biz and shenanigans!

Beijing, Tokyo, Sydney — these exciting cities are standard fare in the life of flight attendant Todd Eisenbraun, and he chases a romance with sexy-but-straight Josh through them all.
Closer to home, a new neighbor in his San Francisco apartment building has a huge crush on Todd. His friends — Katie, a flight attendant-turned-small appliance repairwoman, and Marzipan Q. Thespian, a man-dangling local philanthropist — think Todd should at least give Chris a shot. Sure, he’s overweight, but he’s also handsome, a hilarious playwright, and a great cook … what’s not to love?

But if Josh is straight, the road to love is not; Todd is jostled by internalized homophobia, body image issues, exotic locales, the glamorous world of sewing machine repair, and a community theater musical salute to the life of Judy Garland before he arrives at the realization that he’s been looking way too hard for something he may have already found.
