The Hobbs Series

Set in a small town in coastal Maine, the Hobbs series tells the story of a tight-knit group of LGBTQ friends. Each character has a storied past. As they enthusiastically embrace the next chapter in their lives, they prove that age is just a number. Most of all the Hobbs series is about community. No matter what challenges the characters face, they draw strength and hope from their friends. Each book can be read independently, but the story is richer when the books are read in order.
