Thought of in 2016 and pursued in 2017, this story is more of a sweet romance set in a small shop owned by an older couple.
The protagonists are pets-turned-humans who can barely speak English, let alone help run a bakery. But their willingness and desire to please their “human” couple makes them excellent apprentices and people for the job. If only they can figure out how to express their feelings for each other just as easily!
In 2018, I scrapped the first draft of the story and completely changed it around. Yeah, I know. But, the second conflict adaptation has made the story stronger and more relatable for you all.

This story came to me while listening to The Script’s album Science & Faith. It’s an erotica set in a weekly-pay hotel in a rundown side of town.
A former soldier decides to spend the last of his days, as he intends them to be, playing Russian Roulette during his drunken manias. Those habits start to become a problem when he starts a fiery fling with his neighbor who wants to know him as a person. Battling nightmares, alcoholism, and suicidal tendencies–let alone a concerned “friend” of sorts–Tyler drowns out the world with sweat and booze until a different kind of bomb blows him from his personal trenches.
Despite my obsession with the story, it took me an entire year to actually start writing the story. When I did, it all came pouring out after many dreams that pieced it together.
When not working on Humaning, I’m working on this. So, I’m in hopes of finishing the draft and publishing in the next few years.
Concept cover created in 2019; this is NOT a cover release.
