CONVERSATIONS WITH SWISHY PETE VOLUME ONE by A. Scott Boddie


The fabulous Swishy Pete lives in upper Manhattan with his brassy, sassy friends, Minnie, Char, and Delicious. You’ll recognize him the minute he opens his mouth. He’s out and proud, overly talkative, and in your face. A typical New Yorker, but as soon as you meet him, you will never forget him.

Conversations with Swishy Pete Volume I gathers together twelve flash fiction “episodes” featuring Swishy Pete and his friends as they dish on life in the Big Apple. Sometimes deep, often humorous, these short stories bring a fresh perspective that redefines GLBT stereotypes.

So, honey, come listen in as Pete tells it like it is.

  9. love the cover...the story reminds me of a friend who just moved to NYC after becoming a Steward on AA...

    So do you base your characters on people in your life or are the totally fictional?

  13. Congratulations!! Why short stories & not a novel as such divided by chapters?

  14. It's always great getting to know a new author, and will be checking out your Swishy Pete stories.

    What is your upcoming story, 'Esrevinu' and 'Friends Of Dorothy Monologues Act about?

  16. I just visited your website and read Episode 1: Introducing Swishy Pete. His character sounds so much like an old friend of mine that it's amazing, even the vocabulary and the "spunk" is similiar. The whole time I was reading the excerpt I kept picturing my friends face. I definitely am
    interested in reading more.

    If the movie industry came a knocking at your door, who would be your choice to play
    Swishy Pete? Would it be someone already famous or would you recommend someone you already know?

    Best of luck with your book!

  17. Hi,
    Sounds like a good book. I'll have to check it out.
    Are all the characters based on people you know or where they just clamoring in your head one day, demanding their stories be written?

  23. Joder, I have already written several new episodes for a later collection and my favorite part of writing these stories are the humor and the jokes.

  25. Thank you Marybelle, great question, I write Swishy Pete as flash fiction, it is a way to get the thoughts of the characters out quickly to maintain the timing of the jokes and not flood the reader's senses with additional information about setting and descriptions, to maintain the integrity of the humor.

  26. Cathy M, Esrevinu is a new vampire series and FOD are monologues read by gay men speaking about specific turning points in their lives.

  28. Tara, well, lets see, maybe Jessie Williams, he plays Jackson Avery on Grey's Anatomy.

  29. Beth, All the names of the characters came to me one day, all at once. But the quirky behaviors and voices developed over episodes, maybe they are very exaggerated versions of my fav TV and movie stars.
