Born in Switzerland, Oliver Frey a.k.a. Zack ended up in London and, after attending film school, plunged into gay art and publishing. Innumerable illustrations poured from his pen and brush for British magazines HIM International, Vulcan, Teenage Dreams, the HIM Gay Library series, and Mister magazine. For HIM he created the mold-breaking Rogue comic strip and later The Street, which was part of the inspiration behind cult TV series Queer As Folk. The Internet has spread his reputation to an enormous global fan base through many sites and blogs. Some of his comic-strip work has been published recently by Bruno Gmünder—Bike Boy, Hot For Boys: the Sexy Adventures of Rogue, and Bike Boy Rides Again. As Zack, Frey has taken gay erotic art and comics to new dimensions. He lives with life-long partner Roger Kean in a medieval town on the edge of Wales.
British-born author Roger Kean, who met Oliver at film school, has had careers as a movie cameraman, film editor, journalist, and magazine and book editor. As an author he has written books on historical subjects both factual and fictional, and gay fiction, including: Felixitations; Thunderbolt– Torn Enemy of Rome; A Life Apart; Gregory’s Story; What’s A Boy Supposed to Do; and for Bruno Gmünder Boys of Vice City, Boys of Disco City, Boys of Two Cities, Boys of the Fast Lane, Boy of the West End, Blood and Lust, The Warrior’s Boy and Deadly Circus of Desire.
