Rat Boy 5 Page Sample.pdf

Human beings have killed half a million of our own kind, and no one is at fault. Or are they?
At a dive bar in the middle of a pandemic, masks are optional but politics and religion are strictly forbidden. The humans offer a free one-day hunting license after your third Singapore Sling, pellet gun after six, your own hand gun after dark. If there's nothing in the alley, they'll release the rats they keep above the bar.

Humans call it hunting. Rats have always known it’s blind dominance. They’ve watched human beings destroy the climate, the oceans, and each other.

But rats have a long history with pandemics. Years ago, they decimated humans and this time, they intend to finish the job—wipe out the human race.

Naked House Painting Society 5 Page Sample.pdf

Ten years ago, Michael, Brendan, Andrea, and Carol spent the summer painting houses naked in Martha’s Vineyard and falling in love with one another’s partners. On their last day, hearts are broken, partners are switched, and each couple pursues a different life. Now, they’re reunited at the last house they painted, with the consequences of their choices lingering beneath their attempts to catch up. This is the story of sex between star-crossed lovers, a husband who will risk everything in an effort to win back the love of his wife and about a woman imprisoned by the residue of love that will not die.

Now, years later, those sons meet by chance on the road from Nevada back to Maryland. With the help of a tenacious waitress from Reno, they grapple with the past and work towards redemption, forgiveness, and hope.
