Author Steven Rowley: "This Book Is About an F-Bomb Dropping Gay"

DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Release Date: 09/12/2016

Dennis visits the L.A. apartment of best-selling author Steven Rowley to talk about his debut novel "Lilly and the Octopus," about a gay and his dog. Steven talks about the real-life inspiration for the book, how his boyfriend encouraged him to make it more than a short story and how he went from thinking he's going to self-publish it to scoring a reported $1 million advance from Simon and Schuster. Steven and Dennis compare notes about yelling at their dogs, working with publisher-turned-agent Rob Weisbach, how tattoos are sexy and how honored Steve feels when readers open up to him about their dogs. Other topics include: underwear night at the long-gone Apache gay bar in Studio City, Steven randomly being at the launch party for Dennis's book "Misadventures in the (213)" day jobs, The Sound of Music and riding in an elevator with Arthur Miller. www.stevenrowley.com
