Rob Byrnes won a Lambda Literary Award for his novel When the Stars Come Out. He is also the author of the novels The Night We Met and Trust Fund Boys, short stories in the anthologies Strange Bedfellows and Fool for Love; and an entirely fabricated personal history based largely on your willingness to believe he is 35 years old (he’s really 36. Ish.) He lived throughout New York State for most of those 36-ish years until his recent move to West New York–which is, deceptively, in New Jersey–with his partner Brady Allen. When not writing, he cavorts with celebrities and gets into whacky capers, like that time when he, Clinton and Clooney… ah, but you already know that story.
