Gabriella West is the author of six other novels. She lives in San Francisco, CA.
When Dave encounters woozy young Aaron Andersen at a work event--openly gay, with a house of his own in SF's hip Bernal Heights neighborhood--he at first sees the 24-year-old techie as a harmless nerd and offers to drive him home. But Aaron soon has a seductive hold on Dave, and as the men's lives become more intertwined, Dave finds himself falling into an unexpected and passionate relationship, one that will require all his loyalty and commitment, and his faith in love.
Both men are damaged characters, and Dave really wants to be a good influence on Aaron. But as an old flame suddenly re-emerges from Dave’s past and new revelations about Aaron’s addictive tendencies raise doubts in Dave’s mind, can their life together on Elsie Street really work out?

Did you know that the amount of allowable food dyes in our diet has increased five times between 1955 and 2007? Food dyes have now been officially linked to hyperactivity in children with learning disabilities, but so far the FDA has not acted to warn consumers about their toxic effects, despite the urging of public health organizations. West also explores the recent ground-breaking Dutch study lead by researcher Lidy Peisser that proves once and for all that food dyes actually CAUSE ADHD symptoms in children and adults!
This helpful 1400-word piece, which includes a short bibliography, is geared both toward parents of young children AND to adults who suspect they might have ADHD and want to clean up their diet.
