Blue-Movie Girl: the rise to infamy of a mixed-race girl from Arizona who yearns to be an actress but settles for a career in porno.

David Godolphin (aka David Gee): Godolphin was my first pen-name when I was moonlighting as a journalist in Qatar. And Florence of Arabia (the first version of Shaikh-Down) was published under the name of David Godolphin.

Splendid new review of LILLIAN on Amazon:

A trip to rekindle her relationship with her errant son becomes a voyage of rebirth and discovery for the widowed Lillian. Beautifully descriptive. The sights, culture and smells of the Mediterranean are richly bought to life as Lillian blossoms in the company of Massimo.”

THE AUTHOR tells you all you need to know (all I want you to know!) about my life as a writer – and the critics tell you what they think of me as a writer (samples below):


“Witty, entertaining, raunchy and very well written.” Peter O’Donnell, creator of Modesty Blaisereviewing Shaikh-Down

“David Gee’s tongue-in-cheek, if dark, social and sexual satire (a sort of cross between David Lodge and Tom Sharpe) leads us through a topsy-turvy world of sexual shenanigans and unconventional relationships. Polari Magazine, reviewing The Dropout

My favorite character- by far- was Italy.  The descriptiveness that Gee bestows on his readers is remarkable.  I could hear the water and see the beautiful sights of Venice.”  The Book Review Crew, reviewing Lillian and the Italians
