To celebrate the holidays, my novellas are free on Kindle today. These two are on opposite sides of the literary spectrum. The Wrong David is a subtle, irreverent, and romantic. SICK is creepy, grotesque, and disturbing. It’s a readerly wine tasting. Take a few sips and see what suits your palate. I’d love to hear you comparisons!

David is a disillusioned American wine broker who meets his partner and best friend, Brian, in France to tour the vineyards of Provence. Brian brings his wife, Vanessa, who David has been desperately in love with for years. David has cultivated his obsession with Vanessa, using it as a distraction from his otherwise unfulfilling life.
As the threesome drink themselves through The French Riviera, David is losing his ability to hide his feelings for his best friend’s wife.
John Branch has been sick all his life, which eventually makes him sick of his life. He wants Susan, his devoted wife of ten years, to assist him with committing suicide. Susan refuses to let John die, no matter how excruciating his pain and suffering gets.
Meanwhile, Susan has been slowly killing herself. She gave up on the idea of pursuing any dreams and aspirations in her own life. She gave up on her health and well-being. She even gave up on being an individual person. Her life was fully consumed by caring for her husband and keeping him alive.
After 10 years, John and Susan can’t go on like this for much longer. Everybody has a breaking point. Is this marriage based on true unconditional love, or a sick-in-the-head obsession?
