When I was in college, I had a friend that worked the summers at various resorts. In the fall when school would resume, he’d hold court at lunch and tell us tales of his summer experience, showing us his trinkets, that’s what he called them. Based on those tales, I wrote the following story, Home Away From Home.
Be warned, the story involves explicit sex between gay couples. If you have read any my other stories, this will be quite different.

When I first started writing I wrote in long-hand, and wrote my stories on pads of lined white paper.
I now mostly write straight onto my computer or laptop, but I still have found memories of filling up those empty white pages with my sprawling handwriting and tales of other people’s lives. So happy reading, I hope.
