The unusual love triangle I have written about is titled TRI and it is the story of Inanna, an exotic entertainer and Rajah, a spiritual spoken word artist turned rapper, and the tightly-wound writer they both physically and emotionally with, Tierre Tisdale Thomas.
From humble beginning to tragic end, TRI offers superb characterizations of desire, bliss, lust, rage, doubt, torment, and suffering. How this love TRIangle is revealed and resolved is deceptively simple: the novel expresses how in the short time of a few weeks and culminating in one explosive childhood game of Truth or Dare, true feelings of love can develop and unravel with equal depth and passion. Introduce yourself to -
Tierre: He fully discovers his identity as a serious author in the fiery union with a New Year’s Eve one-night-stand. In an unusual twist of fate, his artistic odyssey will take him from Rajah to Inanna, although only one of them knows who they are truly getting involved with…
Rajah: With dramatic insight and sensitivity, he becomes the link between his lover and sister which consumes them all in a combustible mix of sexual politics and pain…
Inanna: Where her brother is light, she is dark, and she doesn’t give a damn who gets theirs, so long as she gets hers!
Each chapter is uninhibited, offers a searing treatise on dating, relationships, and the tenuous situation gay men and bisexual women find themselves in sexually and romantically…

TRI (City Stone Publishing ISBN: 978-0-9823879-2-4) on a twisted love affair and stolen steamy subterfuge between Tierre, Rajah, and Inanna. They all live borrowed lives while fighting to find real love, as each hides secrets and lies, from themselves and one another. The TRI-angle of San Diego sinners finds their relationships shattered by unexpected events. Rajah and Inanna are both seduced by the same emotionally insecure and physically appealing Tierre. I want readers to dive into the sexy and seductive nightlife of San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico as bitchy dialogue, and fight scenes brings TRI to life. At its heart and soul, TRI is a character study, giving the reader strong, but flawed characters whose problems they can identify with. Love can be warm and wonderful as well as wicked and evil.
