Counting Stars (Counting #1.5)
At the end of my holiday novella, Counting Fence Posts, Henry invites Marc back to his parents’ place for Christmas. Actually, it’s less invitation, more assumption, but Marc doesn’t object. After two days of haunting the lobby of a crowded hotel outside Albany, they’re finally on their way back to Boston. (6000 words)
Counting the Days (Counting #2.5)
Henry and Marc can’t seem to catch a break. They’ve had two disastrous dates—the first trapped in a car during a blizzard and the second locked in a basement—followed by nearly two months apart. Even though they work for the same firm, their relationship is held together by flying visits, phone calls, and text messages. Texting every day isn’t the same as being in the same town, but they’re used to working with that they have.
Counting Out (Counting #3.5)
Henry and Marc are going on vacation: seven days of camping and hiking in the Green Mountain National Forest. And this time, instead of getting stuck somewhere, they’re going to get lost. Before they’re found, they’ll visit a secluded waterfall, encounter a bear, and walk many hot sweaty miles. Marc will discover he hates trail mix and Henry will finally get an excuse to upgrade his cheap phone. There’s also a falling star and some super sweet wishes.
And because this is one of my stories, everyone will live happily ever after.
It’s the last year of college and Alvaro has scored a coveted single. Unfortunately, he has to share a bathroom with the guy next door. Daniel’s…there’s no kind word for it–he’s a slob. And he can’t carry a tune, yet he insists on singing nightly while indulging in his other annoying habit–fruity-scented bubble baths. It’s the perfect recipe for conflict and romance! (24,000 words)

Love and Other Constructs

A Moustache Called Justice
A whimsical story I wrote in response to a prompt calling for the thoughts of things that might not usually be sentient. I chose to bring a moustache to life. The moustache belongs to one of my favourite characters, Andy, and I think this story pretty much illustrates why I love him so much.
