Pass Me By is an award-winning queer, coming of age, and coming out romance. A five book series starts with Ed, a reserved man recently diagnosed with dementia, living in a small northern Canadian town. As Ed's memory declines he loses touch with the present and spends more time in a past he chose to forget, touring with a glam rock band across Canada in the early 1970s. In Gone Fishin', we are introduced to Ed, a retired man spending his time fishing and ordering the same dishes at the local diner with his close friend Rory. Rocked by a recent dementia diagnosis, Ed attempts to keep a semblance of a normal life. As his health worsens and daily routines become increasingly difficult, his panic begins to grow. Forgetting what he orders every day at the diner, disoriented by a grocery list, lost in familiar spaces, Ed's memories become a faded photograph of a past with the potential to disappear forever.
