My Debut Memoir, Coming Soon!
A young man’s journey through grief and romance leads him to resiliently
embrace who he is.
When unexpected death tore through the fabric of my family—in my senior year of college—I unravelled. Confronted by my deep desire to grieve five deaths—instead—I manufactured connections with men in every season, convinced each new relationship was my answer to healing. My mission to find a companion whom I could love, fix, crave, and boast about quickly became an addiction I used to hide from myself, my loss, and even my childhood abuse that sex would trigger.
My world filled with more bravery and truth than I had fathomed, the moment I finally defined my existence myself—instead of through the eyes of my mother, my queerness, abuse, my string of lovers, and crushing grief.
In my memoir, I name each chapter and lover by the quality or lesson I learned during the time I shared with him.
