My first novel in Spanish is here!

My fourth novel, Take the Lead, is now available in Spanish.
The book's Spanish title: Tomar La Iniciativa. 

The story follows Gabriel Galan, a Fort Lauderdale native and popular Boston college writing professor who has a job he adores, 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 Cuban father needs help managing his Parkinson's disease in South Florida, 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 instructor.  Gabriel also learns some life lessons as as a 35-year-old dating in a college town.

Hopefully, Take the Lead will be the first of many Spanish translations from my book catalog.

Below is the description in Spanish:

EL POPULAR profesor universitario Gabriel Galán tiene un trabajo en Boston que adora, un amante joven y candente y un amigo que va por igual a los bares y a las noches de Star Trek. Pero Gabriel quiere más.

Cuando su tozudo e independiente padre necesita ayuda para manejar su Parkinson, Gabriel carga con más de lo que esperaba, y su vida, que hasta ahora iba como la seda, está a punto de cambiar radicalmente cuando acaba colado por Adam, el instructor de danza terapéutica de su padre.

Gabriel siempre ha anhelado tener un copiloto en su travesía por la vida, pero primero necesita tomar la iniciativa y navegar por las aguas revueltas de su propio corazón.
