Barnes &

Derek Mayfield, a 26 year-old black man, is still coming to grips with being HIV positive and openly gay. To take a break from the real world, he sets off for Cancun, Mexico, where he meets Rob, a naÔve, 16 year-old white boy who is just like the golden, all-American jocks of Derekís youth.

Derek strikes up a friendship with Rob and his younger brother Skeeter. The three become an inseparable trio for youthful summer adventure.

But Derek also craves the touch of Robís innocent, virus-free skin, even though Rob is straight-identified and underage. Itís a dilemma that threatens to ruin Derekís peaceful getaway. Itís a week that will change the lives of Robís family and Derek forever.

Bridge Across the Ocean by Randy Boyd

Professional Reviews

Lambda Book Report
An intimate novel with raw emotion. The sexual attraction and the conflict it poses are beautifully handled. Ultimately, this is a powerful, emotional novel that cannot help but move the reader. The book works on every level, and Randy Boyd is definitely a writer to reckon with.

XY Magazine
Sincere and suspenseful, Bridge Across the Ocean is a great escape and a very important piece of writing, something Randy Boyd should be very proud of.

Gay and Lesbian Review
Boyd does an excellent job of creating the characters. They are three dimensional and realistic. Boyd tackles several complex themes in this short novel with skill. Racism, homophobia, attraction to younger men, dealing with HIV are all handled without preaching and without excess moralizing.
