Join Prism Book Alliance® as L Dean Pace-Frech goes Outside the Margins today.
The Holidays are in full swing! We’re getting to mail out packages this week so they arrive on time. I am looking forward to having next week off from the day job to read, write, and relax.
My family gets together on Christmas Eve. We eat dinner around noon, no later than one o’clock. Then we clean up the kitchen together and open presents. It’s been a tradition I’ve looked forward to for the last twenty five years or so.
There have been times when we haven’t been able to get together on Christmas Eve, or when it was delayed. Last year, we hosted at our house because both Thomas and I had to work. Other years, I lived too far away to travel for the one day and get back to work the day after Christmas.
But the best years do seem to be the ones at my parents’ house, the same house I grew up in.
What about you? What are your favorite holiday memories of yesterday or your favorite tradition you look forward to this year? I’d love to hear!

Title: Need Your Love
Author: Dean Pace-Frech
Publisher: JMS Books
Publication Date: 11/29/2015
In June, 1966, ACLU attorney Eron Lassiter attends his uncle’s wedding, and makes an unsettling discovery. Though he’d bowed to family pressure and has a potential marriage planned, his long-ignored attraction to other men roars to life when Garrett Emerson, the bride’s nephew, captures his attention.
After serving in the Korean War and going to college later than his peers, upwardly mobile Garrett is a loan officer at a local bank. For his girlfriend, fiancé in her mind, he can’t climb fast enough. But none of that matters to Eron, and maybe that’s why Garrett’s so drawn to him.
Can Eron and Garrett find happiness amidst the still pervasive culture of propriety, honor, and expectation in the 1960s?
About L Dean Pace-FrechWith inspiration from historical tourism sites, the love of reading, and a desire to write a novel, Dean started crafting his debut novel, A Place to Call Their Own, in 2008. After four years of writing and polishing the manuscript, it was accepted and published by Musa Publishing in 2013. His second novel, Disappear With Me, set in Edwardian England was published later that same year by Musa.
Dean lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with his husband, Thomas (legally as of February 14, 2015), and their two cats. They are involved in their church and enjoy watching movies, outdoor activities in the warmer weather, and spending time together with friends and family. In addition to writing, his hobbies include reading and patio gardening.
Dean is currently working a standalone title, Need Your Love, set in 1966, and The Higher Law, a continuation of the story of Frank and Gregory’s family set in the 1930s.
