It was in Ottawa at the Unison Festival in May 2014 that I first heard of Darren. He was there to perform a narration for an Alberta GLBT choir, The guys sitting next to me asked if I had read his books. The Edmonton Queen came highly recommended.
Darren is an incredibly good looking man with a rich baritone voice. He was a pleasure to listen to and an even greater pleasure to read his words. I would love to have half of his writing ability.
