GORDON PRESCOTT BLITZ
From a young child, Gordon was called a sissy, girlie, fag, queer, and homo. Getting towel whipped, stomach punched and spit on were part of his world. Being bullied like this made him go into a nice, staid, stable career in accounting. He never found his writer’s voice until he retired in 2017 after forty years of debits and credits and became a passionate writing machine. During 2020, he had published work in Whoa Nelly Press, Wingless Dreamer, Two Hawks Quarterly, the Santa Monica College Journals Chronicles and On-Going Moments, and Gay Wicked Ways. His 2021 best-selling novella “Shipped Off” was published as part of the Running Wild Press Novella Anthology Volume 4, Book 1. In 2022 he published his second novel, Fathers and Other Strangers. Audiobooks are available for both novels. 10 of his autobiographical stories are available on the Queer Slam Episode 21, podcast called “Just Gordon.”
Gordon participated in the filming of Queers Across the Years as a writer and performer.
He is a member of the oldest LGBTQ synagogue in the world, Beth Chayim Chadishim.

Through DNA testing, various scenarios are revealed as to the authenticity of Mark’s claim. And just when you think you’ve figured out the mystery, a fifty-year-old secret held by Lynn’s dead mother, is revealed.
