My guest today is Daren Krupa, his junior class English assignment was to write a meaning of life essay.  All he could think was meaning of life? I’m fifteen years old. I don’t know diddley about life! The one lucid moment of his youth.

A native of New York State Krupa grew up in Phoenix and worked as a newspaper reporter and editor, waiter and telemarketer. At least a dozen novels have presented themselves throughout his life. Such a Nice Boy is the second he wrote and the first to be published.

After love at first sight strikes gay Alan Hovey and married female co-worker Lindsey Ronan, Alan is outed, forcing both to face unresolved issues.  Lindsey found her fiancé with his lover boy half a lifetime ago and never got over it.  Alan’s controlling mother made men an attractive alternative.  When Lindsey’s feelings threaten her career she's forced to confront her past and her marriage.  When Alan seems to go nowhere with boyfriend Parker he questions his lifestyle and his fear of women.
