Close friends Allan and Warwick are dead. They’re not crazy about the idea, so to help them deal with this dilemma are Samantha, a blond bombshell from the 1950s, and Guy, an insecure angel.

Allan also has a secret. He has a romantic crush on his friend, Warwick, but shortly after confiding in his new angel pal, his love interest falls for the cock-sure playwright, Pedro.

Not only does Allan have to win the heart of his companion, he also has to grapple with the faded memory of how he actually died.

My mind reeled back to the day he whisked past me at the office, out into the corridor while I clutched the doorknob wondering who he was. Halfway down the stairs, he turned back. He had forgotten something, although nowadays I couldn’t recall what it was. As he looked up at me limply holding the door open, he introduced himself.

“I’m Warwick, the new guy.”

I was under his spell. An instant bond, which I didn’t realize would have potent repercussions in the future.

“Allan, not quite the new guy.”

“Are you in Fiona’s office?”

“I wish. No, I have that adorable black hole of need as my boss.”

“Oh yes, I’ve heard about Mr. Beasley. He has quite a reputation.”

“I have a talent for ending up with clueless managers.”

I felt totally myself with this stranger. He stood framed amongst the dreary white cement walls and floor-to-ceiling glass panels, giving a spark of interest to my mind-numbing day. Another staff member, whom I took no notice in, ambled between us as we continued our conversation.

“So, Warwick, whose office are you working in?”

“Steven’s. He hired me a couple of weeks ago. I was sure I wasn’t going to get the job, but he told me that the aftershave I splashed on for the interview clenched the deal!”

“It pays to have the right accessories when being interviewed by the lavender mafia.”

Fiona strolled past us, so we both came back inside and continued our chat near the doorway.

“Have you given Pat your five dollars for the sweep, Allan?” she called out, looking back in our direction. I didn’t break my mutual gaze with Warwick as I answered.

“Yes, Fiona, but I didn’t get a good horse.”

Warwick chuckled as I took note of his alluring features. He was handsome. His cute Maori nose highlighted his Aboriginal characteristics. A gorgeous indigenous mix. His eyes spoke confidence, ready to guide me into his web of friendship.

“Allan, I’d better get back to Steven. I’m the typing pool.”

“I’ll come with you. I want to see how you’ve set up your office.”

Those idiotic words just fell out. I liked this guy. I wanted us to be close from the start.

“Follow me,” he said.

I didn’t know why, but for the first time in ages, I had a spring in my step. I felt like I was courting, even though I had a boyfriend at home.

“Where do you live, Warwick?”

“I just moved into Balmain. Nice terrace house with three other friends. You?”

“Uptown Dulwich Hill. Balmain, huh, expensive?”

“A bit. I think I made the wrong decision, but I’m trapped there for at least six months. Who do you live with?”

“Oh, a friend,” I said. It wasn’t a complete fib. My boyfriend and I were acting more like friends at that point in time.

We entered his office. A sturdy stapler and hole punch sat to the right of his desk in an era when most people had embraced a paperless office. To his credit, there was only one binder on a shelf behind his chair. Everything else was placed in neat little groups. A bronze cup and saucer with a teaspoon sat diagonally left of the in-tray. Post-it notes in small, medium, and large were piled on top of each other next to his phone.

Warwick was either a neat freak or a serial killer. Death by staple! Nametags for his victims made of yellow Post-its. Who’s who and where in the compactus you will find their bodies, all printed out on A4 in his binder. The boys would be cataloged behind the blue divider, and the girls behind the pink. The yellow was for those no one’s sure about.

About Kevin!

Kevin Klehr author picKevin lives with his long-term partner, Warren, in their humble apartment (affectionately named Sabrina), in Australia’s own ‘Emerald City,’ Sydney.

From an early age, Kevin had a passion for writing, jotting down stories and plays until it came time to confront puberty. After dealing with pimple creams and facial hair, Kevin didn’t pick up a pen again until he was in his thirties. His handwritten manuscript was being committed to paper when his work commitments changed, giving him no time to write. Concerned, his partner, Warren, secretly passed the notebook to a friend who in turn came back and demanded Kevin finish his story. It wasn’t long before Kevin’s active imagination was let loose again.

His first novel spawned a secondary character named Guy, an insecure gay angel, but many readers argue that he is the star of the Actors and Angels book series. Guy’s popularity surprised the author.

So with his fictional guardian angel guiding him, Kevin hopes to bring more whimsical tales of love, life and friendship to his readers.

Blurb: Allan is in love with his best friend, Warwick, but Warwick has fallen for cock-sure playwright, Pedro. As Allan tries to win back his friend’s heart, he also must come to terms with the fact that they are all dead.

Close friends Allan and Warwick are dead. They’re not crazy about the idea so to help them deal with this dilemma are Samantha, a blond bombshell from the 1950s, and Guy, an insecure angel.

They are soon drawn into the world of theatre – Afterlife style, with all the bitchiness, back-stabbing and ego usually associated with the mortal world.

Allan also has a secret. He has a romantic crush on his friend, Warwick, but shortly after confiding in his new angel pal, his love interest falls for the cock-sure playwright, Pedro.

Not only does Allan have to win the heart of his companion, he also has to grapple with the faded memory of how he actually died.

Review: What a strange book this one was. I don’t know if I loved it or hated it. I think a little bit of both. The idea behind the book is choices we make in life, or don’t; missed opportunities, regrets, Afterlife, and unfinished business.

Allan has been friends with Warwick for a year now; an instant chemistry and a “special” friendship. He gradually fell in love with him, made up his mind to let him know his feelings, yet every time he opened his mouth to do just that, the entire monologue he had perfected in his mind was crushed under the weight of stage fright. Just when he finally made a move toward claiming his love, life slipped under their fingers, the boat suddenly lost and limbo waited.

Confusion is perhaps the word to describe the Afterlife for our pair. Confusion is what I experience as well. When this book starts it instantly requires your full attention to get into it, or you get lost in the swirls of the plot, and the unique blend of different times, cultures and aspect of life. People from the past, people from the future, people from the present all gathered in this peculiar place. Nothing makes sense for the characters, not much makes sense for us, yet a constant element is there to ground us and not let us fly onto uncertainty and chaos. Guy, the wonderful, charming angel is the one reminder of what is or could be.

This is the story of Allan. His unrequited love for Warwick, a beloved friend, a coveted lover, a soul mate almost lost forever. This is the story of Allan and his growth as a man, his lesson of first loving oneself and then charge forward for the love of your soul. This was an incredible story about human fears, told in a strange way, behind riddles and delicious drama.

It might frustrate you a bit; I know it did me quite a lot. I felt agony along with Allan in this chase for his man, getting him within his reach only to lose him right the next moment again, and again. It felt like a sucker punch and God but it hurt even reading it. It was excellent from a point onward, after having finally gotten into the theme of the book I enjoyed it immensely, hence my forewarning to keep your wits and give this book your full attention from page one.

At this point, after having come to terms with the dreamlike state this book twist you about I’m eagerly waiting for its sequel. I wouldn’t have thought it possible when I first started reading it, it took me a while to appreciate it, but I definitely would recommend this one to lovers of fine and artistically written books and romances that seduce you with their subtle passion. Keep in mind there is a bit angst and drama there to go with, but that just makes it all the better. Enjoy.
