Hi, I've got a question. In your novel "A Dangerous Thing," I must've missed something because when I got to the part when Adrien is on one of his visits to the library he's accosted for the first time by this nut job - Rev John Howdie (sp?) - who starts making disparaging remarks about Adrien. How did he know Adrien was gay? Was this from town gossip or something? Just wondering.
Small town gossip, yes. In fact, the point is to emphasize that word--rumors--do spread fast in every "village." So Jake's paranoia is not unfounded.
