"A Starving Fire tells the story of a young man plagued by death, guilt, and regret, all while he tries to navigate this new world of ever-changing relationships after a terrible house fire claimed the lives of his father and little brother. This excerpt features the first part of his story, when he is still in his early twenties and struggling to move forward. Influenced by contemporary romance novels, Jaxson’s story navigates love in its many forms, including love for family, friends, work, a very special woman, and the self at its purest state. This piece seeks to invite readers to a world that is murky and uncertain, a man who is broken and scarred, and a love that is fierce and unshakable." -- Abstract
