I am a chick lit author and health care marketer. Perhaps more importantly, what you must know about me: I am a consummate lover of dark chocolate, white wine, shoes and spin class. If you love more than two of those things, we could possibly be BFFs.
Why I Love My Gay Boyfriend was inspired by my first job, a long time ago in years of yore, at a global beauty company, where (drama queen alert!) I experienced severe culture shock and moments of terror made only tolerable by my gay best friend and white wine. My clumsy path to becoming a marketing professional inspired me to write about the impact of corporate ambition and gay boyfriends on women.
When Veronica graduated with an MBA and dreams of saving the world, she never knew she would end up a corporate slave to the lipstick gods, in love with her playboy boss and in need of a gay best friend to make her feel fabulous. Straight out of school, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Veronica has her heart set on an honourable job, such as saving starving children. Instead, she accepts a job at Gisele, a global cosmetic empire that seems to mock her every value. Veronica struggles to fit in until she meets Stevie, a gay co-worker, who immediately assumes the role of fashion counsellor and fabulousness.
Under Stevie’s mentorship, Veronica flourishes as a vixen and marketing peon. But for Veronica to truly succeed at Gisele and seduce her boss, she must bequeath her soul to the makeup gods and sacrifice her friends in a ritual known as corporate brainwash. How far does Veronica go before she realizes she is losing everything she once valued, including herself?
