Peter and I became friends years ago when we met as bloggers. I found him to be a funny, caring and passionate man who tells things as they are and how he sees them. He has written many books, most thrillers, plus his autobiography which talks of a world many readers will discover for the first time and is a live thriller in its own right.
Born in New Zealand, Rigby Taylor grew up in Europe where he was an actor and creative dancer before becoming a lecturer in Renaissance Art. His two gay themed novels, ‘The Price of Freedom’ in which he explores gay relationships of youth, middle age and the elderly while coping with undercurrents of homophobia, and ‘Dome of Death’ a thriller , are both set on Queensland’s sub-tropical Sunshine Coast.
His autobiography, ‘Dancing Bare’, is a humorous look at his first twenty-five years as a young exhibitionist in Europe and the UK in the ‘swinging sixties’.

Dancing Bare is the sometimes risqué tale of an innocent young man who swaps the suffocating confines of middle-class New Zealand for love and liberation in 1960’s London and Europe. Reveling in the freedom conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, a stripper, a rent boy, a lover, a teacher, and a dedicated traveler through Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, where travelers are uncommon and countries still retain many of the differences that makes traveling so interesting. He encounters a wide variety of people, life styles, and customs, eventually settling in Paris where the state does not consider his sexuality to be a criminal offense. A moving and amusing story of hope and love, sex, and sexuality, theatrical showmanship and artless innocence, laced with a little philosophy. Download this FREE e-Book today!
All three books are available from Lulu publishers.

I think the other books might have more appeal  readers than Dancing Bare. I get quite a few emails from contented readers, especially thanking me for “Rough Justice/Price of Freedom” [same book, different title]”. ‘Sebastian” and “Dome of Death” are also very popular… being fictional and sort of thrillers with gay heroes. The memoir is a bit too real for many people…. being “a snapshot of a wonderful time of freedom so long ago it seems like a different planet”…. this last comment was from a pleasant Indian fellow.

Sebastian is an enigma. Everyone likes him, but no one knows anything about him. He wears clothes only under protest, but no one seems to mind. To say his home life is unusual would be like saying the Amazon is a stream. Bizarre doesn’t even begin to describe his upbringing. He doesn’t know who his father was, he’s used as a therapist for broken youths, and yet he’s ‘normal’.
