LOVE CREEPS is a story of desire: the lack of it, the loss of it; the excess of it, the insanity of it. It is the story of a triangle of stalkers, who discover that sometimes the best way to find love is to look right behind you.
The story starts with Lynn Gallagher, a successful Manhattan gallery owner. On the surface, she has everything. But when she looks at the man who is stalking her obsessively, she sees the one thing she herself lacks: the power to desire.
To overcome her problem, Lynn attempts an unorthodox solution: She decides to become a stalker herself, considering it's the only way to rekindle her passion for life.
To make her task easier, she selects an attractive target: Roland Dupont, a wealthy and sophisticated lawyer. Fit and athletic, Roland's own demons are well concealed.
Roland's not about to open up to his new squash partner, Alan Morton. Squat and unappealing, Alan isn't exactly competition for Roland - on or off the squash court. When Roland finds out his friend not only knows his stalker, but loves his stalker, a new kind of rivalry ensues.
Set against a backdrop of present-day New York, LOVE CREEPS depicts three very different characters whose mishaps, missteps and role reversals combine to illustrate the fluid nature of desire and the powerlessness of any individual to control the fate or the passions of anyone--including himself.
LOVE CREEPS is a novel that asks the questions that lurk in the shadows of the contemporary dating scene: How do we explain attraction and appeal, their comings and goings? What makes us become attractive? What makes us become attracted? In matters of love, why is it that all too often the more we need, the less we get?
