When I was a kid at school I hated exercise because the locker room was so homophobic. The other boys could tell I was different before I even knew I was gay myself. As a result, I grew up thinking sports and fitness weren’t for me.
But ten years later when I got cancer, everything changed. My treatment was successful and I was given a second chance in life. I didn’t want to waste it this time around so I took my health and fitness more seriously. To my surprise I found I loved running marathons. And even though I’d always hated team sports, I developed a newfound passion for American football.
That got me to thinking about all the different ways I could have turned out if my life had taken a different direction. How one small change could have profound consequences on who I am today. It inspired me to write The Multiverse Diaries, where characters meet different versions of themselves from alternate timelines.
For example, Drew, a geeky gay guy, meets his alter-ego, a closeted college quarterback. When they accidentally swap places, they discover they both have a lot to learn from each other.
Unlocking new aspects of myself enabled me to live a happier, healthier life. I hope that the Multiverse Diaries will inspire readers to do the same. Book One is available for pre-order now on Apple Books and Amazon Kindle.
