Phoenix Books Essex June 25 @ 7 PM

7:00pm - 8:30pm
Bill will engage the audience in one of his favorite topics,

"Do I have a book in me?" 

As an author or eight fictional works--both self-published and traditionally published, he will answer questions about the work of writing and the new business of publishing.


Bill recently published his eighth novel The Priest and will discuss the book as well. The Priest follows a working class altar boy's decision to become a priest, and explores the struggle many boys have becoming men, especially around sexuality. Finding safety within the celibacy of his Catholic faith, he must then confront his own emerging sexuality in the real world and reconcile the inevitable collision between Catholic doctrine and the risk of being human -  all of which takes him to a surprising place.
