Big Butch debuts this week, free now on Kindle unlimited

May, 1974. Jimmy Washburn lives in a sleepy small town with a beautiful wife he adores and his almost two children. He works at the small auto body shop his grandfather founded, under the direction of his uncle. Surrounded by family and lifelong friends, Jimmy has a good life reviving cars, caring for his son, eating the Pennsylvania Dutch food for which his wife has a reputation and drinking with the boys. But just as the new White Hills Malls challenges the economy of the community, this one week in Jimmy’s life forces him to examine his responsibilities, redefine what friendship means, and chose between his youthful ways and the duties of a proper father. And it all kicks off with the death of Big Butch.
