Book #1 Description
The Priest follows a working class altar boy's decision to become a priest, exploring the struggle many boys have becoming men, especially around sexuality. Pierre finds safety within the vocational confines and celibacy of his Catholic faith, only then to be astonished as he experiences life vicariously in the shadow of the confessional. Ultimately, he must confront his own emerging sexuality in the real world and reconcile the inevitable collision between the security of doctrine and the risks of being human - all of which takes him to a surprising place.

Book #2 Description
I am one. In my adult life, I’ve weighed between 240 lbs and 490 lbs. The publishing trade is bulging with remainders about how to lose weight. The diet industry is a $60B a year business with a 94% failure rate. Even hard drug and alcohol recoveries fare better. Yet little is written about how it feels to eat compulsively or what it’s like to be fat – the place where food is at once a pleasure, friend, and virulent enemy. Medical and psychological professionals opine intellectually and scientifically about the disorder, but rarely ask the fat person how they feel, how feelings trigger their addictive behavior? Fat People is simply this fat person’s effort to instill understanding and perhaps empathy for those who struggle constantly with food.

Book #3 Description
The story begins when Paul returns home on his Harley Panhead to help his parents with the farm. But the dream of the open road – wind in the hair, power in the groin – is fraught with danger. Paul and Glenda are growing up on a small hill farm above the Northeast Kingdom’s legendary Lake Willoughby. They keep each other close and share a sense that their way of life is ending. Paul’s trip home raises the question for them both of when life is no longer worth living.

“Bill’s characterizations are hypnotic. He is a master of the Franglais and Vermont dialects, the translation of which to the written page is seldom successful. The book reads like an autobiography, or at least like one borrowing on life experience, and I'm at a loss for words to describe the pleasure it gave me in reading it.” – Ray Bates, the British Clockmaker

Book #4 Description
Lila & Theron is a love story. They don’t imagine themselves poor, nor do they covet what they lack. They find solace in one another, their animals, their land, rarely in possessions, most of which are tools. Their routine is determined by the demands of survival with precious little time to reflect on their lives, which ebb and flow as nature sees fit.
