My novelette called The Wallace House of Pain is now available in paperback and ebook format, exclusively on Amazon.

The story is a portrait of troubled family relations, modern social justice issues and deeply personal choices. Here’s the back-cover blurb:

Activist Xander Wallace and his straitlaced father do not have an easy relationship. Jim’s views on race, immigration, gender, sexuality and even millennials alienate his son no matter how hard Xander tries to find common ground. Toss in Jim’s second marriage ten months after Xander’s mother died and it’s a volatile cocktail. How, against this backdrop, will Xander dare to bare his soul and reveal his greatest secret?

Social justice issues have touched the life of every American in some way over the past few years. I wrote The Wallace House of Pain to explore the differences in generational attitudes toward these social justice issues, in parallel with exploring a troubled father-son relationship. The novelette delves into that age-old question: Can two people meet in the middle without sacrificing their own beliefs and convictions?

On top of that, it’s a fun and fast read (due to it’s novelette length), filled with colorful characters, humorous bits and–hopefully–thought-provoking insights.
