Part One:
CAROUSEL PONIES

 

“Life is a carousel.

It goes up and down.

All U gotta do is just stay on.”

Pharrell Williams

Shane is back in the dating game, with the help of well-meaning friends. But let's just say, things don't go exactly as planned. Blind-date mishaps, anyone?

​​A gay-ish twist on Cinderella. But, there's no fairy godmother, no glass slippers, just a lot of complications and a dash of 80s nostalgia. So buckle up, and get ready for a wild ride.

Part Two:
WEDDING WOES

 

“Always get married in the morning.

That way, if it doesn’t work out,

you haven’t wasted the whole day.”

Mickey Rooney

 

A tale of how NOT to have a wedding. Actually, it's a gay commitment ceremony (gay marriage isn't a thing in the 80s). Mix a high-strung mother who is unaware her son is gay, two gay men in love, too many best men (one in drag), and a nervous flamboyant wedding planner--what could possibly go wrong?

Part Three:
SO LONG

 

“How lucky I am to have something

that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

 

Shane is happily "married" and everything in his chaotic life has finally fallen into place. Life is not just good, it's great. Scratch that, let's make it more "gay": his life is fab-u-lous! But, as you probably expected, there's a whopper of a "BUT" coming. Let's face it, nothing in Shane's life stays normal for long. It's the big "BUT" that changes everything for Shane and the gang. Get ready for some serious drama, folks. Drama with a capital “D”.

CHASING UNICORNS
Book #3 of the
Shane Davison Chronicles Series

“There are some who went off in search of unicorns, but found only rhinoceros.”     Laurent Binet

 

Shane settles into the “normal” life he’s always craved, unaware his reality is about to turn messy and complicated; split between his own budding romance while being supportive of a co-worker’s gay teen son Dexter. Homophobic hate, lies, and misunderstandings lead Dexter into a dark place, a dimension Shane may be powerless to save the teen. All the while, Shane has his hands full with his new beau, Michael. A relationship which on the surface seems to be going swimmingly, but underneath the sunny veneer, lurks chilling secrets. Inspired by actual events.

BLURRED LINES
Book #2 of the
Shane Davison Chronicles Series

What does one do when reality and fiction collide catching you off guard in that gray area in between, that place where lines blur and your worst nightmares come to life?

Shane Davison pens a fictional short story for a college writing class assignment that goes haywire as boundaries between fiction and reality become obscured. The warning signs are there, but go unheeded as the work-in-progress is "just a class assignment." Or is it becoming more than just fantasy, seeming so real-to-life in fact that people’s lives could be at risk?

"Dale does it again! This second book was a roller coaster ride I didn’t want to get off. The ups and downs and twists and turns kept me in such suspense I couldn’t put this book down."  Amazon Review

MaskedID
Masked Identities by Dale Thele

Revised on March 1, 2023

MASKED IDENTITIES
a novella of fictional proportions

Brooke thought she had read every book in Grandad's collection of fiction until she stumbles upon an unfamiliar title. Curious, she delves into the book, realizing her relationship with her boyfriend of four years parallels the story she is reading of Ezra and Christian. Can a Victorian tale of forbidden love between two men provide the answers to salvage her floundering relationship?

 

This unusual story is a period tale wrapped inside of a contemporary story line. The interior tale follows the relationship of two men in 1890 Victorian London, the outer story follows Brooke and Chase in upstate New York in a present-day setting. The manuscript crosses genre-specific lines; gay/hetero and period/contemporary. Definitely not a traditional run-of-the-mill read, but a journey into alternative fiction. (novella)

(Due to special formatting, the paperback is a better choice.)
