The Long Awaited Pink Canary Has Flown the Coop

The Pink Canary

The long awaited Pink Canary has finally flown the coop. It was released yesterday is currently available at and on Amazon Kindle at  It will soon in about 6-8 weeks be live as a book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble as well as nook. This book will be availabe through the book distributor Baker and Taylor so you can ask for it at your local store.

This little book has been a joy to write. Not only is it a murder mystery it is also comedy. I have reached out to the gay community in this book with the help of two of my best friends one who has been in the entertainment business for over 40 years. The one and only Vicky Lane

Vicky Lane

Vicky not only graciously helped to navigate me through the waters of the Drag Queen world she also appears in the book. To add to that she kindly wrote the forward for the book. 

“There are bodies piling up in Key West…. Serial Killer?  The bodies showing up outside a famous drag bar….is that a clue or a coincidence?  A book that delves into the Life of a Drag Queen and a marvelous “Who done it?”  Clever! Let’s go into their world of Mascara  and Stiletto Heels and observe. Who could be killing all these gay men and why?    

Yvonne Mason is the master, or mistress, of mystery in this rip roaring, fishnet stocking twisiting comedy mystery tale. This story could very well could have really happened as Yvonne Mason connects this story with some undisputed truth and history of NYC underworld and the “World Famous 82 Club”… it just might have happened, see for yourself… 

The local detectives and cops go on a case that has been haunting the head detective and the main character since their days in the Big Apple. Does the detective has a love/hate relationship with the Drag Queen or is it a lot less Hate and more Love than admitted? Exciting and Hilarious! Who will be next on the list of murder?

 The story is as seen through the main character’s eyes and what eyes they are!  Lou the mild mannered detective by day and Lola a FABULOUS drag queen by night who can get into all kinds of trouble!! How her friends try to help her find the killer and catch the monster behind these unspeakable murders. 

I have been a Drag Queen for over 40 years and this is the first time I have been asked to collaborate on a book. Drag Queens are my speciality and I have worked in Cabaret shows since 1968 as well as extensively in Musical Theater, Television, Radio and Films. I really was excited and honored to help with the book and this book was an ultimate thrill for me.Thanks toYvonne Mason for her faith in me, and for having the insight to choose me to help her navigate this drag queen world. Thanks to Peter for his energy and Marvolous Wit…We will always be connected with this superb Book!”

Next I have to thank another charcter in the book my friend and staunchest supporter Peter Fundora. He is Penelope. 

Peter aka Penelope

He allowed me to use his stores and his adventures when he dressed as a trailer trash drag queen to make The Pink Canary so hysterically funny. 

My editor Kelly Koch who is just starting out in the business at she not only edits books, she can make your resume sing for you. She is also proficent at creating business cards and editing and polishing papers, journals just about anything you need done. Check her out.

This book is probably one of my greatest creations to date. It is funny, yet suspenseful.It is a must read.

You can find all of my books on Amazon, Kindle, Nook and my online bookstore at and yes they will arrive to you signed.
