And we have another cover!!! Remember Us used to be Trapped, but there already was a Trapped in the JMS Books catalogue, so JM asked if I was okay with a title change. Remember Us may be a better title for the story considering one of the characters suffers from dementia and doesn’t remember the present.
I wrote this story for an anthology called Never Too Late. It’s an anthology about LGBTQIA+ characters who are a little older. I never meant to make mine as old as I made them, but…
This story is very dear to me. It’s not a romance in the traditional sense of the word, but there is a lot of love.
Charlie and William have been together for more than forty years, but now William doesn’t remember Charlie anymore. Or he does, he thinks he’s a young man and that a younger version of Charlie is waiting for him back home.
Ready to see the cover?
Charlie Wilkins had everything he wanted — a husband, a daughter, a house that was his home. He still has his husband, but William has forgotten who he is. He still has his daughter, but the roles have switched, and Ann is now the one taking care of them.
There is only one thing Charlie wants, and that is to spend the rest of his days with William by his side. But William is living in a nursing home, and Charlie is living … somewhere. Ann says she will fix it; she’ll make sure they’ll get to live together again. Charlie hopes she will before William either escapes or figures out Charlie has left him in someone else’s care.
He promised William they’d stay together till death did them part, and he meant it, but what was he to do when he no longer could take care of William?
