Coming Soon–The Troubleseeker

I am very excited to announce that my novel, The Troubleseeker will be published by Chelsea Station Editions this coming year. The Troubleseeker is a modern gay Cuban-Santería retelling of the Odyssey story. The title itself is the English translation of the name Odysseus and the story was inspired by the life and adventures of my partner René Valdes. Narrated by Hadriano, the ancient Roman Emperor, it mixes Hadriano’s millennial long search for redemption with the story of Antinio from his home in Havana to the Mariel Boatlift, detention in Wisconsin, the beginning of the AIDS epidemic through the tech revolution on the West Coast.
