Back in 2018, I penned A Hometown Holiday, a M/M novella that highlights my affection for winter holidays and Amherst, Massachusetts, a small town in the western part of the state that is surrounded by colleges and universities.
Once upon a time, I was a student at one of those schools, and it was during those years that my love of writing grew from hobby into something deeper. I fell a bit in love with the Pioneer Valley during my time at school and setting a story there gave me all sorts of good feelings.

While it takes some work to get there, Josh and Alex get the warm, fuzzy HEA they absolutely deserve.
Amazon is being kind of slow getting that new content up so if you already own the ebook, be patient and it will hit your e-reader soon!
He’s stepped back into the closet for a guy, but how long can he stay there?
Life in a college town suits Josh Cassidy. He has good friends and neighbors, and the bookshop café he runs with his family is thriving. As the winter holidays begin, Josh finds himself enamored with police officer Alex Curiel, an old friend who has recently moved back to town. The trouble is, Alex isn’t ready for the world to know he’s attracted to men.
At Alex’s request, Josh agrees to closet their relationship, though the secrecy quickly becomes a burden. When Josh realizes he is falling for Alex, his ability to hide his feelings from the world begins to slip, and he’s forced to decide if love is enough to keep him hiding behind closed doors.
