A look back at young Will

I’ve had a little trouble writing recently. I don’t think that comes as a surprise to anyone. So I decided to write something that was a little self-indulgent. Something that would make me feel good.

Book Reveal: In the Wake of Wanting

As many of you may know, I’ve been diligently working on Trey’s novel for a few months now. Wouldn’t you know that I found a way to fall head-over-heals in love with this guy, too? Damn it.
