Theo, 20 year old community college student, is between two lives—his adulthood in which he’s lacking a firm career direction, and the childhood in which he wasn’t yet an amputee.
On his own in Portland, Oregon, in the past year he’s found friends, a home in the LGBT activism community, and a coffeehouse, The Broken Cup. He may have also found the man who can help him come to terms with one life so he can fully enjoy the other.
“Better Than New” is a spin-off from my full length novel Nesting Habits. Theo has a walk-on part in Nesting Habits, but “Better Than New” belongs to him.
