From the outside looking in, John leads a boring life by day as a professor at a small liberal arts school in San Francisco. His nights are saucy, sinful even, when he services clients as a sex worker. He’s damned good at it, too, for reasons far surpassing simple technique, whether he’s entertaining super-hunky coeds or fulfilling the fantasies of married men on the down-low.

Because John has a secret.

It’s not that he’s thirty-five and feeling washed-up or that he’s got a crush on one of his clients.

His secret could be he’s buried his rural, Southern roots, or that Paul, his first lover and preacher from back home, still preoccupies his thoughts. Maybe it’s the terrors he faced in conversion therapy as a teenager…but it’s none of those things.

John’s secret is the Fountain, a mysterious well of energy within him he cannot control.

Paul knows about the Fountain. So do John’s parents. Despite their best efforts to protect their dogma, it will all come out now that Paul has called John home to Georgia. To Bethesda.

About the Author

Remy J. Alan is a gay author hailing from the American South, having spent his formative years in the Lowcountry swamps and beaches of South Carolina. His Christian Fundamentalist upbringing taught Remy an abundance of wonderful and beautiful values, but its staunch, sometimes violent, rejection of his identity led him to reject religion in return. The ideals at the root of Christianity and the places where it intersects with the naked reality of life supply the backdrop for many of Remy's stories, particularly those in the Elemental series.

Remy currently lives in the rolling hills of the North Carolina Piedmont, where he enjoys a career as a scientist and life with his partner of thirteen years.

He invites you to slip into something a little more comfortable, curl up on a comfy couch, and go with him on an eye-opening ride where, hopefully, he’ll blow your...mind.
