Deck the Halls: An Excerpt from my upcoming novel

The following is an excerpt from my debut novel.  A life or death Christmas Carol, “Home Street” tells the story of a man who must journey through his past in order to save his future.  He must relive his rocky childhood, the dreams of his youth, and conflicts he faced during the Iraq War before he can accept an incredible gift: the opportunity to change one crucial moment that will spare him from certain death.

This chapter sets the scene for his teenage years, when Paul discovered love, heartbreak, and the kind of man he wanted to be when he grew up.
