Gabriel’s World, by Alex Fiano
This is the official site for Alex Fiano, author of Gabriel’s World Mystery/Thriller LGBTQ+ Series.
I have a diverse working background as a writer and college teacher, attorney and journalist. I am currently studying Studio Art and Art History at Hunter College. I am an independent author under my own imprint of Troublemaker Press, and a freelance writer and adjunct faculty. My work on this page and my opinions, writings, art, and thoughts expressed are my own and not attributable to any past or current employers.
My short biography here.
Note: I stand clearly and completely against hatred and violence, neo-nazis and white supremacists, and stand strongly for human rights. I stand against racism, sexism, LGBTQ+phobia, Islamophobia, Antisemitism, and similar forms of hatred and prejudice. I believe in being vocal in support for those like me and those not like me, because we must all stand strong in support of each other as a matter of decency and humanity. Taking a stand matters.
More on the Gabriel’s World Book Series
Gabriel’s World has four books: The Hanged Man, Two-Faced Woman, The Book of Joel and Dead for Now. A fifth book, Hardcore, will be released soon. Gabriel’s World is a mystery/thriller/suspense series is in a style similar to Nordic Noir, building in plot and tension through strong characters and mood. The series features intense stories of crimes, conspiracies, social issues, and exploration of complex morality. The stories have the same characters: gay NYC private investigator Gabriel Ross, bisexual artist Joel McFadden, and bi/pan/genderqueer private investigator Veronica Gianni. Each has a stand-alone theme and style, yet each story builds upon the previous story and lays the groundwork for the next.
NOTE: The books contain adult content including explicit physical and psychological violence, strong language, and sexual situations.
Veronica will soon head a series of her own, Gravfika, in the genre of Neo-Noir Gothic Fantasy. Interested? Sign up for the newsletter and updates.

Feel the Love, Spare a Shout-Out
If you have read and liked the series, thank you 🙂 There is nothing so great to me as an independent author, as a reader enjoying Gabriel, Joel, and Veronica. I’m building a Gabriel’s World community with you. I want to ask a favor–please take a couple of minutes to post a review on Amazon, Smashwords, B & N, or your blog, or Twitter, etc. This helps spread the word about the series and characters for others to find out about. And that’s important. Authors and readers of independent books are the revolution in the book industry–we are democratizing the reading experience. Gabriel’s World has queer as hell characters to get into, action, sex, intricate plot, relationships, philosophy and angst at an affordable price. Thanks again to all readers, and love to those who have given a shout-out.
