Twelve years ago, Kirk made an innocent but terrible mistake. As he faces down another night of tormented dreams, he struggles to shake the scars he still bears.
After sixty years as man and wife, Ira and Betsy’s love is as vibrant as it was the day their eyes made contact across a dusty country parking lot. Now, disease and willful destruction tear away at everything they’ve built together.
Just sixteen, Megan is at war with the world—and especially her mother, who flounders in a failing campaign to keep her daughter from making the same mistakes she did at that age.
Robin, a career-driven woman with an unwavering, take-no-prisoners attitude—despite the ultimate sacrifice she made as a woman—finds her husband Rick, who has opted to coast (and flirt) through his own career, frustrating at best.
Wes and Trish were once high school sweethearts and now have a teenager of their own. They cherish their daughter, but that’s not enough to keep them from growing apart. And now, the fate of their family hangs on the success of one big score.
By eighteen, Jo-Ann was alone and pregnant. Twelve years later, she’s about to discover the reward for a good deed
doesn’t come without loss.

Read information about the authorKevin Zdrill discovered the power of story telling at the age of 11. After dusting off a manual typewriter from the closet of his parent's home, he began creating short, comedic skits for his friends to read. Their laughter at these unadorned stories sparked an enthusiasm to continue exploring human behavior and relationships.
"I'm always looking for the characters within my books to have natural flaws. I find it speaks to their desperate nature in humorous and earnest settings. It's important for the reader to relate and bond to the characters and to care about the chain of events that occur. I wrote No Kiss Good-Night (2012) to capture the angst many of my friends were facing turning 40 and still looking for love. Forty years old is a significant milestone for many people, especially men."
When we first met Gus in No Kiss Good-Night, he was a man on the cusp of turning forty and desperate to find love. He was still suffering from his last relationship disaster ten years earlier. His resolve was to focus on a dating website despite the reality that it continued to beat down his self-esteem with every date. In the end, it was pure chance that connected him with Mitch. Yet, he allowed the resurgence of his past to nearly destroy what he had with Mitch. Gus eventually discovered his mourning for the past was holding him hostage from moving forward into a healthy relationship.
In Boom Chicka Wah Wah (2013), we catch up with Gus seven years later to find he’s settled into a fairly mundane relationship with Mitch. Now he’s being tormented by a male obsession to push his reckless side by performing death-defying stunts while Mitch is pressuring to progress their relationship to get married and have children. The book showcases a common a deal breaker in relationships: opposite goals and opposite views on marriage and having children fuelled by staunch refusal for both sides to settle into a healthy compromise.
With the Ukrainian In Me (2015)(EDITOR'S CHOICE DESIGNATION), we become part of Larissa's journey at age thirty starting over again in relationships, having to reside back with her parents and told from a female perspective. Not only is Larissa working to find that perfect match, but during the process she is finding herself. During her self-discovery, Larissa comes to terms her own happiness and contentment isn’t reliant on being in a relationship. For her own journey it becomes about identifying the inner critic within herself and moving past it.
Crazy, Mixed-Up World (2014) explores the darker, unflinching realities of modern day relationships that pulls no punches with the characters. The story weaves between a series of relationships that unwittingly interconnect by chance and fate, ultimately influencing the outcomes of their lives. "I wanted to develop a narrative that depicts the fatalistic side of human nature in our current society. This is a complex, character-driven story."
