Author: Rik Francis

I’ve been writing for 18 years, with my material published in magazines, books and newspapers in seven countries. I’m an Amazon Best-Selling Author. ‘Two Shades of Gay’ is my third novel. Some more ‘exciting’ life experiences, include being shot at in Beirut, witnessing a bomb blast in Belfast, and surviving an engine fire on a flight from Moscow to London.

I taught filmmaking and storytelling in Sydney, Dubai, Kuwait and Auckland. With my writing experience, I’ve realised the power of the imagination, and the way it enriches our lives.

Apart from writing, I’m also interested in metaphysics and philosophy. I believe we all create our own realities by our thoughts and attitudes. I try and write every day, and am currently working on a screenplay that explores the connection between violence and love, and the wondrous power of the human spirit.

He also loved his wife. A true story.

This is the dramatic true story of Alvin’s journey as he attempts to live in two worlds at the same time.

‘As the weeks rolled by, my desire to see Robert grew more intense. There was something about him that really pushed all my buttons. It would appear it was not the case as far as he was concerned. Jean noticed how I had become withdrawn. She put it down to overwork so she decided to take me out for dinner. She made a booking at a Greek restaurant. She and I both knew it was a popular place for gays to dine. “Why book there?” I asked, somewhat suspicious she might have an agenda. I was already becoming a bit paranoid. Had she somehow found out I was away from home the last few Wednesday nights. No. I decided that was impossible. I had made a careful check of her movements before leaving for my clandestine meetings to make sure there was no change to her usual schedule.’

Reader Advisory: Be careful. This could happen to you. This is a true story involving secret liaisons, angst, musicals, and a concerned ghost.
