St Sukie de la Croix takes readers on a tour of ‘God’s waiting room’

“Why do gay men retire to Palm Springs? Because it’s a great place to live and a fabulous place to die.” That’s the premise behind “Twilight Manors in Palm Springs, God’s Waiting Room,” a comedic romp that follows the adventures of Brian and Stéphane, along with their friends and neighbors, as they face a series of bizarre people and events — including nonagenarian cross- dressers, an S&M-themed Thai restaurant, nuns, Carol Channing and murder—that one would only find here in the desert.

The author of “Twilight Manors,” St Sukie de la Croix, is a reporter, photographer, playwright, historian and fiction writer. He’s also a full-time Coachella Valley resident.

De la Croix spoke with The Desert Sun about his latest book, fact versus fiction, renaming Palm Springs landmarks and how music inspires his work.
