Becoming Agie

Becoming Agie consists of two novellas about a M->F transgender scientist called Agie.

In Usher Syndrome she opens her heart to someone who would accept her for what she is. But her destiny has other plans and Agie has to fight for her love in the most challenging and unexpected way.

In Pumpkin Day Agie tries to solve a mysterious disappearance of a giant pumpkin into a cavern beneath Slown City. Meanwhile, a lonely, well-to-do man called Jake has to choose between courage and prejudice to pursue his love interest. A lost notebook brings the two lives together.

Usher Syndrome was adapted for stage and performed at London’s Barons Court Theatre in 2010.

I also wrote a cabaret song about Agie, which pretty much summarises her quirky character. The lyrics is here.

The book is now available in bookstore worldwide:  iTunes, Barnes&Noble and Amazon Kindle.

Becoming Agie is the Rainbow Awards runner-up.
