A sneak peek at Take The Lead, my fourth novel

Popular college professor Gabriel Galan has a job he adores in Boston, a hot young lover, and a buddy who goes along on pub crawls and Star Trek nights alike. But Gabriel wants more.

When Gabriel's stubbornly independent father needs help managing his Parkinson's disease, Gabriel takes on more than he bargained for, and his smooth-cruising life is about to take a sharp turn as he teeters on the edge of a new crush on Adam, his father's physical therapy dance class instructor.

Gabriel has always yearned for a co-pilot on his journey through life, but first he needs to take the lead and navigate the troubled waters of his own heart.

The book, which comes out JUNE 27, was inspired by a real dance class for people with Parkinson’s which I wrote an article about for The Boston Globe two years ago. The photo below is from that front page. (Since the article is behind a new paywall, you can read it in its entirety for free on this Parkinson Research Foundation link. )
