Return to the Beach House




The Beach House was the first story I wrote for the Goodreads MM Group’s popular Don’t Read in the Closet event and remains one of my favourite pieces to date. It garnered much praise from the gay men I know in real life which made me very proud.

Return to the Beach House will feature characters Marco, Sam and Darrin approximately seven years down the line. In the originally story they were all just graduating high school, with Darrin one year older than the others. In Return to the Beach House they will be in their mid-twenties and beginning to establish themselves in the real world.

Sam and Marco have built on what brought them together in the original story, both figuratively and literally. They have recently purchased the lot containing the abandoned beach house and plan to completely renovate the property. Unbeknownst to the two of them, Darrin Peters has inherited the local construction company from his father and when brought in to organize and complete work on the new beach home, old attractions and rivalries come into play.
