About the last thing shy and lonely Joseph wanted to do was live on campus at seminary. But when he finds a beautiful afghan on his dorm room bed and attempts to track down its maker, Joseph runs headlong into a series of events that might just lead to something called… love.
Charming, whimsical, and poignantly funny, A Purple and Gold Afghan and other stories is a delightful collection that will tug at your heartstrings.
Targeted Age Group:
My book is different in that it’s short, clean, and it’s written from the point of view of a young man. The reader is given insights into the main character’s thoughts as he discusses situations with his snarky subconscious inner voice.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just write and enjoy doing it. I wrote these stories for me; to explore the mysteries and messes of real-life love. Write about what you’re interested in, what touches you, and what you have vivid experiences with. Make it real.
