Member Directory Listing - About Us:
My spouse and I are the smallest of small presses. We're learning as we go, publishing our first title, Without Shame: Learning to Be Me. Our next title will be an edition of Susanne's grandmothers journals of her canoe camping adventures on the French River in Ontario in the 1930s. I come to all this with an open mind and (I hope) an open spirit.

Book #1 Description
Without Shame is about my transgender life, but
it's also about my beloved grandfather, Boston and Cape
Cod, my bohemian aunt, a duck in a burlap bag, my
eccentric parents, a blowout party for the ages, strange
and wonderful restaurants, a worm's eye view of big-time
college basketball, the Cambridge music scene in the '60s,
Woodstock in the '70s, a lunatic dog and four tuxedo cats,
ball lightning, a wedding dress, my years as an Adirondack
fly fishing guide, the world's seediest hotel, my long
career in music, treasured friends and students, marriage,
beachcombing and mortality.
