Today, it gives me great pleasure to introduce Sabrina Zollo, the first new author we’ve brought into the Central Avenue fold in a long, long time. We were captured by Sabrina’s great story when she submitted it – well, after we found it. It seems as though cyberspace claimed a few of our submissions late last year and we didn’t find this out till months later. I’m sure happy we found it – it’s one of the most fun stories I’ve read in a while.
It’s the story of Veronica Lopez, a young, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed MBA grad who’s looking to save the world. Faced with a lack of job prospects, she accepts a marketing position at Gisele, a global cosmetics empire. When she’s faced with female co-workers who instantly hate her, she finds solace in the only person who is nice to her, a gay man named Stevie. Stevie becomes her fashion consultant, and guide to all things corporate. When Veronica starts to get herself into trouble by performing a few career limiting moves and alienating her best girl friends, Stevie sticks by her.
It’s a fantastic tale, told with the wit of someone who is just a great story-teller. Sabrina has created characters full of flaws and redeeming qualities, as all good characters should be. Why I Love My Gay Boyfriend is a guaranteed fun read.
