About the author:
Will Rodgers and Amelia White have written romantic fiction together before as a hobby and decided to try their first book as a writing team, resulting in the debut short story series, “Matthew & Daniel”.
What inspired you to write your book?
We love writing together for fun and this is just the kind of thing we enjoy reading. After talking about possibly writing our first proper book together, the characters of Matthew and Daniel evolved very quickly, and we’re currently working on the next book in the series.
Here is a short sample from the book:
The barista smiled as his eyes fell immediately to the younger man’s paint stained clothes, the ones he was trying to hide under his blazer. “Double shot Americano,” he repeated with a nod and started making it as Daniel set enough change down on the counter to pay. “Your name please?”
“Uh…Daniel…Dan…I mean,” he stuttered slightly. “They don’t usually ask for names here….I dread to think what would’ve happened if I’d ordered a muffin too,” he said with a hint of a smirk.
“Daniel.” The barista nodded again and smiled back. “I just wanted to know your name, I’m Matthew. Can I have your number?”
“My…? Uh… I…I’ll just take the coffee, thanks. I’m not in the habit of giving my number out to baristas I just met ten-seconds ago.”
“If I wait five minutes would that be better?”
