About the Author

Brandon Witt’s outlook on life is greatly influenced by his first eighteen years of growing up gay in a small town in the Ozarks, as well as fifteen years as a counselor and special education teacher for students with severe emotional disabilities.

Mr. Witt has a way with characters and the heroes in Hope is the Thing with Feathers are a testament to his talent at creating interesting characters with quirks that set them and their story apart from others. Raymond and Samuel were older, 67 and 56 respectively, with a multitude of life experiences behind them that gave them immediate depth. I especially liked that their circumstances and outlooks on life were so different, making this more of an opposites-attract romance. Rather than a meet-cute, Raymond and Samuel’s initial meeting was a bit odd, but it only served to add to the charm of the story and ensure it would stand out among the other holiday shorts. The romance between Raymond and Samuel progressed a tad slower, which I liked, though I found some of the back and forth drug down the pacing after a while. Still, I liked this mismatched couple. They were endearing and I found their mutual attraction sweet if a bit underdeveloped. As usual Mr. Witt’s writing flowed wonderfully with smooth transitions between scenes and a dialogue that brought these eccentric men to life. Best of all though were the warm feelings Samuel and Raymond’s love inspired. Hope is the Thing with Feathers is definitely a feel-good holiday romance with some quirky characters and strangely interesting scenes, and one that I’d recommend to fans of the author or anyone looking for a bit different take on a holiday story. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
