SEEKING REPRESENTATION

Hello, Universe! It's springtime, the season of possibilities.

I am currently in search of a super talented literary agent who will share the same passion I have for my story. This is the beginning of my quest for my 76,000-word manuscript, RETAIN THIS RECEIPT THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY, to be traditionally published as a memoir. May the Universe be with me! You can always reach me on Twitter @Gmoylan.

RETAIN THIS RECEIPT THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY

I thought I had come out of the closet when I told my family and friends I was gay, but then I escaped a tragedy that killed thousands of people and realized I had barely made it to the door.
RETAIN THIS RECEIPT THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY chronicles the tumultuous universe of Gerry, a boy who grows into a man who carries with him the hidden shame that he is gay. After years of heartache and violence, and an envied showbiz career ruined by a diminished sense of self-worth, he finally comes out to his family and friends. With his secret burden lifted, he transitions from feeling like an outcast in a homophobic world to being someone with a life full of promise and purpose.
Then Gerry switches himself off a plane the night before the jumbo jet crashes into a building and his world view is, once again, knocked out of alignment. His narrow escape from death has him seeking refuge in a new closet, one where he questions his own mortality and relevance. Why did he deserve to live? Was eluding the cross-hairs of fate a twisted reward for all those years of being ostracized? And was he now living the most honest and purposeful life he could?

RETAIN THIS RECEIPT THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY is a story of survival. It’s a story of second chances and starting over. It’s a story of hope, perseverance and the quest for resolution.

I was interviewed on Boston's BDCRadio by Julie Kramer and Henry Santoro on the eleven-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks. We discussed my experience from that day and my forthcoming book.

My Changed Ticket From 9/11

You may be wondering why I call this my lucky ticket from 9/11. This is actually a scan of my ticket receipt from September 11, 2001. Up until the day before 9/11, I actually had been booked on American Airlines Flight 11, the plane that was flown into the north tower of the World Trade Center. Through a set of seemingly simple circumstances, however, I changed flights late in the afternoon on September 10th.
