  • The Healing

    The Healing

    “The author captures the raw emotional journeys of the Crockett family and their closest friends, the Willinghams. They all desperately beckon normalcy to return in the wake of tragedy, the death of Navy SEAL, Travis Crockett. The author has a keen ability of helping the readers feel as if they are physically a part of the story. Written in such a clever, rhythmic cadence, most readers will not be able to put this book down until the last page has been read.”

    - Clarissa Douthit, The US Review of Books

    RECOMMENDED by the US Review

    The Healing follows the events of a weekend as Navy Chaplain, Charles Willingham and his wife Teresa renew their old friendship with the Crockett family. The Chaplain had the reluctant task a year earlier of telling the family about the tragic death of their oldest son Travis while he was on a mission in Afghanistan with his Navy SEAL platoon. The unexpected appearance of Clay Lucas, the platoon leader of the SEAL team that Travis was a part of, leads to many memories of everyone’s relationship with Travis and each other and how the family is coping with their loss.

  • The House on Shadow Lane: A Love Story

    The House on Shadow Lane: A Love Story

    Peopled with remarkable and varied characters, the plot of The House on Shadow Lane required a skillful hand to keep events moving at its almost frantic pace while remaining believable. As Robert Heylmun weaves the lives of his characters into the nap of his plot, their connections produce the complicated, even twisted, events that make the novel captivating. How, the reader wonders, will the romance developing between Hal and Simon survive the challenges they face? How will Carl, who is “in love with two people of different genders,” decide? While readers have likely never known such characters or situations, the author’s ingenious interplay brings them into vivid reality. As a result, readers will likely share on finishing this page turner, a “joyful sense of loss” that paradoxically occurs whenever I finish a novel I have much enjoyed. Good stories like this leave the reader to ponder what will happen next to those characters that he has come to know so well. The author’s story telling expertise establishes him as a writer whom readers of gay fiction will want to read again … and again.
