Anthony meets his Muse in Amsterdam when they are both very young. They share a romantic experience in the darkness of a club over several nights. Apropos for Anthony because he had been living in the dark, just rising from the ashes of a family tragedy and just beginning the struggle to come out.
The Muse, the brightest star after his darkest night, appears with love. But having no idea who he is or who he is becoming, Anthony is shy and too afraid to reveal himself. So he lies about his name and never asks the boy for his name.
When they briefly see each other in the light for the first time, Anthony runs like Cinderella, not from the boy but himself. He has no clue of the next step after such depth of intimacy in the dark—not understanding love between two men—and feels shame for lying about his name.
Several years later, while living in California, Anthony comes out. He realizes the love he is beginning to feel for himself is the same love that he in the boy's arms.
Not long after coming out, Anthony thinks he sees the boy walking down the street. He doesn't believe it could be the same person; in Anthony's country on the other side of the world. He's inspired to return to Amsterdam to see if their paths cross again. Thus a search that spans the globe begins.
Life brings Anthony opportunities for home and love in different lands, from Europe to Australia to Africa. Yet, with each experience, Anthony tries to let go of what seems like the impossible dream—to find someone he knows nothing about, not even his name.
The Muse continues to return in dreams, in times when the support of a best friend is needed. Anthony begins wondering if The Muse exists or if the unconventional relationship is all just a fairy tale dream.
After another sighting of his Amsterdam Angel, Anthony decides to write a book to find Him. Having completed that book, Anthony discovers new love with someone who may very well be his Lost and Found "angel."
Lost and Found – His Name picks up in novella format where the book Sprookje leaves off.
Will Anthony finally realize his dream of love in person after being devoted to his Muse in spirit for so many years?
