    About "Dirk Vanden"

    1. Dirk Vanden

      I was born on May 7, 1933, in Roosevelt, Utah, but grew up in a small neighboring town called Vernal, high in the Rocky Mountains, near the Colorado border, on old Highway 40 I grew up as The Best Little Mormon Boy In The Whole Wide World, but defected at age 16 when I discovered I was Queer, and my Bishop told me I was an Abomination in the sight of God and would burn in Hell forever if I didn t repent Obviously I didn t repent Eventually when ALL IS WELL was published, in 1973 I asked out of the LDS church because I was Gay, sent them a copy of ALL IS WELL my wish was granted without protest I am now, officially, NOT a Latter Day Saint During college at the University of Utah, I wrote my first Gay Novel, TO THEMSELVES UNKNOWN, dared to submit it to a creative writing seminar, the summer I graduated One of the best first novels I ve ever read, said Albert Guerrard, a then famous novelist teacher of the seminar Unfortunately, its subject matter is homosexuality, which severely limits its publication possibilities You could try one of the porno houses, but I hope you won t have to do that It would spoil a good book That was 1958.A professional agent at Curtis Brown spent a frustrating year, trying unsuccessfully to find a publisher Finally, in desperation, I sent TO THEMSELVES UNKNOWN to Greenleaf Classics in San Diego, and it ended up being published as a Fag Hot called WHO KILLED QUEEN TOM GL s addition of hot fag sex to my sensitive self examination definitely ruined it, for me, at least.The rest of my story is on my personal website Please first visit DirkVanden Dot net, not DirkVanden dot com Three of my books are still available at the dot com address All of my titles are listed here on Some are listed as Not Available I m in the process of converting all my books to Kindle and am searching for a copy of WHO KILLED QUEEN TOM From Greenleaf Classics Pleasure Readers, 1969 From time to time the originals are listed for sale on Two here now have 5 star reviews I WANT IT ALL ALL IS WELL.My new novel ALL OF ME Can You Take All Of Me A Gay Mystery, has just been published by Rosedog Books, in POD Paperback, or various e formats on RoseDog s Yahoo bookstore It is also now available on Kindle and as a cheaper paperback on the Prime program free shipping

    1. Another vivid telling of a man coming to terms with his sexuality. Very well written and very authentic, emotionally and historically. I'm not an officionado of the 'Tenderloin' district but I recognized the LA he describes.If you like hot sex this book is what I believe they used to call a 'stroke' book? The sex is a little rough here and there and there IS a rape scene referenced. It's an integral part of the protags motivation, so it didn't bother me too much, but it is definitely written to [...]


    2. There's something about books written about gays in the preAIDS days. I often wonder how guys today view the orgies with their total disregard for safe sex. Do they feel envious?"All or Nothing" is a parallel book to "I Want it All" The first chapters cover the same territory but seen through different eyes.Dirk Vanden hasn't written a romance, more the observations of a guy coming out in that era. Being a painter himself, Dirk has a very observant eye. He remarked to me in an email "My head wor [...]


    3. Thank you Mr. Vanden for another awesome story. Bill Thorne's life took a somewhat darker road after the gang rape. Alcohol and drugs led him to the bear community in L.A. and eventually San Francisco. Through choices of his own, Bill wound up in the brotherhood of fisting or FBI. I enjoyed the way that Warren's and Bill's lives overlapped and helped them grow. Again, this is not a romance but a full on story of self-discovery in pre-aids USA. Best read as a series.
