More About the Author

"Like so many of the great stories of addictions, this is a story of a long, winding road-trip through the emotional and sexual psyche... amusing and horrifying, cautionary and inspiring." -Sally Bibrary, Frock Magazine

"...a fascinating read... a wild ride of freedom and excess... I applaud the courage to put such a story out for others to gain insights from." -Gina-Vizavi, Transgender Forum

"...beautifully written, riveting, and, yes, fun!... [the author writes like] the Jacqueline Susann of memoirists." -J.P.

"...dark and erotic. I love it!" -C.B

Above are a few comments written by reviewers about my book, "My Transvestite Addictions: The Story Of One Individual's Odyssey Through Crossdressing, Alcohol, Escorts, Strippers, Sex, and Money."

I'm a professional freelance writer, editor, and artist--and a lifelong crossdresser/transvestite who has always struggled with my gender identity. I've also struggled with a number of addictions, including alcohol and sexual addictions.

I wrote "My Transvestite Addictions" based on my real-life experiences (though I've changed all the names and certain details of events). I've crafted the stories to examine the way one individual is dealing with his complex issues of crossdressing and transgenderism and his chronic addiction problems.

My book is serious, funny, outrageous, sexy, earthy, and unflinchingly personal. As a warning to sensitive readers, the book includes blunt language, swear words, and graphic sexual descriptions, as well as a fair amount of libertarian politics that some may view as politically incorrect.

My intention is to both entertain and educate. I'm always being asked, "Why do you dress like a woman?" and "What is it like?" and "Do you like guys or girls?"--in addition to many other interesting questions. This book answers those extremely complex questions and many others--in ways that are sometimes shocking. The book also addresses the general lack of public knowledge regarding the multiple aspects of transgenderism, including the differences between crossdressers and transsexuals. I strongly advocate for greater understanding of, and respect for, transgendered people.

In my case, my crossdressing, which started out as a healthy and bold form of self-expression, evolved into a type of addiction that became associated with other addictions, such as excessive alcohol use, excessive use of call girls, and excessive spending of money. My addictions and impulses led me to do a lot of crazy things... I've had public sex with men in bars while I was dressed like a woman, I've dated a sexy female stripper whom I met while I was crossdressed at the strip club, I've been locked up in jail for drunk driving and beat up by cops because of how I was dressed, I've been hauled off to a hospital because I threatened suicide to my gender therapist... and I've done many other crazy, wild things, all of which are discussed in my book.

After a long series of sometimes highly enjoyable and sometimes extremely disturbing experiences such as these, I finally reached a partial resolution on my problems--a resolution derived from my own inner strength and independent spirit and the kind, caring help of others.

One of the themes of "My Transvestite Addictions" is that each of us is different. And each of us has to come to our own terms with our problematic behaviors. Human beings are extremely complex creatures. None of us can possibly fit neatly into particular expert-designed categories listed in psychology textbooks. We each need to discover our own truths, what works best for us, and what helps us live good lives as free individuals who are honest and true to ourselves and to others.

Despite my struggles, I remain very proud of my crossdressing and of the female aspects of my personality, psychology, and life. They are important parts of my truth. I'm very happy that I'm both male and female--Jack and Jacquelina.

And whatever my problems and struggles have been, I take comfort in knowing this: I have lived my life as a free-thinking individual... as a rebel against the establishment... and as an independent, free-flying spirit. I have lived my life as me, not as a clone. That automatically puts me ahead of 99 percent of the rest of the population.

My problems and struggles have been worth it.

I hope that my book will be of help to other people--either by learning from my mistakes or by being inspired by some of my better behaviors. I look forward to hearing from my readers!

Subtitled as it is, "The Story of One Individual's Odyssey through Crossdressing, Alcohol, Escorts, Strippers, Sex, and Money," My Transvestite Addictions really doesn't leave much to the imagination. It's an extraordinarily candid look at the life experiences of Jack/Jacquelina, alternately amusing and horrifying, cautionary and inspiring.

The story begins with the harsh contrast between a 10 year old lying in the comfort of his own bed, full of innocent prayers for God to turn him into a girl overnight, and 47 year old laying on the cold floor of a jail cell, tortured by questions about what left him broken and bleeding . . . and where he goes from there. It's a shocking contrast, and one that serves to set our expectations for what's to follow.

Make no mistake, both Jack & Jacquelina are responsible for actions that many readers may find distasteful, but you can't help but understand - and even appreciate - the thoughts, feelings, and desires behind those acts. We may shy away from stories of anonymous, public sex; heavy drinking; acts of violence, and dangerous, expensive indulgences with transsexual escorts; but we can't help but confront the doubts, feelings, and insecurities behind them. Clearly, we don't all deal with our issues in the same way, but there's a commonality to our issues that's important.

Something that may jump out at a lot of readers is the terminology and phrases that are used throughout the book. Jack makes no attempt to be politically correct, to pick and choose his words, or to tailor his comments not to offend. He uses terms that he himself admits may be controversial, but which are honest reflections of the world in which Jack & Jacquelina have battled for so long.

The main character in this book, Jack, makes me embarrassed to be a member of the transgender community. He participates consistently in drunken episodes including the dangerous and highly illegal activity of drunken-driving with total disregard for the impact on the transgender community much less the risk of causing harm to others. He is an affront to the community further in his utterly inappropriate choice of wardrobe, consistently presenting the community as one populated by hookers and sluts. While I can appreciate fully the torment between male and female personalities, that does not allow me to condone the resultant conduct articulated in this so-called historical novel. Two points I do fully agree with: the condition expressed consistently manifests narcissistic and egocentric characteristics and the condition does require further scientific (medical) investigation by professional experts (psychiatrists) who are not themselves afflicted. In my opinion, the book is a waste of time and money and the author, to the extent it is autobiographical, requires immediate serious psychological assistance.
All that said, I must admit that the book does touch on and reveal the darker and more sinister aspects of the condition that many (but by all means not all) in the transgender community suffer from. If the book in anyway promotes further research into the "treatments" available for the self destructive, additive aspect of the condition, it does serve worthy purpose.

Jack please write another book!!!!! I couldn't put this down - my kindle was like glued to my hand!! Ha ha!! You are a handsome guy AND a beautiful woman. You don't give yourself enough credit. I think the fact that you haven't found that special someone for you has NOTHING to do with your looks. You are not settling for just anyone like a lot of people do. There's nothing wrong with that girlfriend!!! Wait for the person that sweeps you off your feet and loves you faults & all!!

Jacks oddessy is quite typical and should appeal to many of the TS?TV, confused men out there, as it did to me. On the negitive side it was a bit repetitive.
