A poignant masterpiece, "Dear Gavin" details Carl's controversial journey of becoming an unwed father and the monumental challenges that are to follow.

"Dear Gavin" is not only a story of carnal failure, but of forgiveness, hope, and unlikely triumph. Carl's confessional honesty allows the reader to glimpse into the heart of a man whose devotion and loyalty are dramatically demonstrated, in every step of his adventure toward single-fatherhood.

"Dear Gavin" is a timely reminder of how strong and important a father's love can be. A rare offering of literary innocence and emotion, this story calls out to that little boy or girl in each of us to once again come out and play.

A modern love story set in Ireland, reminiscent of “A Walk To Remember,” by Nicholas Sparks and “Beaches,” by Iris Rainer Dart. 

(Chapter Excerpt)
It has been ten years since I saw Maura Dougall, but our once torrid past remained undeniable and hauntingly irrepressible. Maura and I had still corresponded over the last decade through sporadic emails and occasional letters, but until her unexpected, urgent call last month, I had not even thought about retuning back to Ireland or ever seeing her again. Unusually remorseful, Maura genuinely conveyed how much she regretted ever leaving me, but hoped that we could possibly reunite or at least revive our once vibrant friendship that had lain dormant much too long. Mysteriously vague, she also mentioned something about changes that had taken place, but would only offer an explanation face to face.
