    When I got my copy of "Shortcomings" the first thing I noticed was that the cover page was quite vivid. The book was a delicious read with all the characters, layers, and themes - and provided lots of food for thought in addition to eliciting many emotions. It reminded me how fighting for our lives and our potential is of utmost importance in a world that seeks to divide and diminish. I'm glad DS was brave enough to put his message out and had faith that there was an audience who would appreciate it. For all the Noah's Arc fans, here's a little more of Darryl, you gotta love that!

    “Shortcomings” was a book I was looking forward to reading because of my admiration for its author, Mr. Darryl Stephens. He has been an inspiration in so many ways because of his drive, his dedication and his activism. He has impressed me on so many levels and he did not disappoint with “Shortcomings” This book grabbed me from the beginning. Mr. Stephens, in his description of the characters painted a picture that I could visualize. Not only were the physical descriptions detailed, but the emotion behind each character made me feel for them and understand why they made the decision that they made. Highly recommending a book that delves into the gay male porn industry was something that I never thought I would do, but being a person that thrives on understanding the reason behind a person’s actions explains my positive feelings toward this book. In its nature, it is raw and erotic but because we are forced to know these very young men, we feel for them. An excellent read! Pamela... More > Williams< Less

    Darryl Stephens is a man who wear many different hats. He's an activist, actor, dancer, singer/songwriter, and now we can add author to his many talents. "Shortcomings" was more than I expected it to be. Darryl was so vivid in describing what these characters were feeling, one couldn't help but feel it also. You can actually picture in your mind what these characters look like. the novel held me from beginning to end. this was Darryl's first novel, I hope this was not his last. I'm looking forward to more literary works from this fastly rising star. Vanessa Holmes
