A. C. Burch
A. C. Burch writes LGBT Fiction with an emphasis on characters who face life-changing circumstances with courage, passion, and a sense of humor. He’s always been fascinated by moments where a single decision can change a person’s life for better or worse. The family we create, or as Armistead Maupin calls it, “the logical family,” plays an important part in many of his stories. A. C.’s literary icons run the gamut from Agatha Christie to Walter Mosely, Patrick Dennis to Armistead Maupin, and Jane Austin to Bart Yates.
A.C.’s debut novel was The HomePort Journals (Wilde City Press 2015), set in his hometown of Provincetown, Massachusetts. This tale of marginalized characters who unite to form a family of their own received rave reviews and was Authors Talk About It (ATAI) grand prize winner for 2016. His book of short stories, A Book of Revelations (HomePort Press 2016) was a 2017 International Press Awards “Distinguished Favorite.”
A Provincetown resident since 1987, A. C. lives in 130-year-old Cape with commanding views of the harbor and is seldom found without Dori, a young golden retriever who keeps him company in his writing shed. He’s fortunate to be able to split his time between Provincetown, MA, and South Beach, FL, two beautiful places that never cease to inspire him.
