Reviews for Last Dance in Paradise:
“This was a great book and Stefani is a terrific storyteller. I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. Her writing style is rich and colorful in its story as well as the characters. My only criticism is that the book ended too soon.”

Michael D.

“Transwoman Stefani Moore, a denizen of New Hope, has chronicled one sad, busy day in 1995 when the gay community of Paradise, NJ (a thinly disguised New Hope) came together to stage a drag show as a benefit for a local artist dying from AIDS. Ms. Moore has chronicled and removed the veil that too often conceals the difficult lives of the transgendered and exposes the tragedy that shortened the lives of talented, promising people who didn’t deserve to die so young.”

Dr. James Morris

“Great story! It brought me back to the good times in my life.”
