Spanish Bay is a feel-good novel about two young men who, despite having the odds stacked against them, never give up, always see the silver lining, work hard, and are committed to their families, come what may. Chris, a Texan native who recently moved to Carmel, rescues wheelchair-bound Neil from bullies. Neither question the love that develops between them, although their life together is not without challenges. When Chris’s parents die in a car accident, their young love faces the ultimate test. Will they be able to cope with the additional responsibility of raising Chris’s baby brother Frank, who is also confined to a wheelchair?
Spanish Bay is about love overcoming obstacles, and finding happiness, wherever you are.

Excerpt from Spanish Bay
CHRIS MILLER WAS BORN twenty-one years ago, to Francine and Andrew Miller of Lubbock, Texas, where the Millers owned a cattle ranch and cotton farm on the outskirts of the city. They were an average, god-fearing family and had lived in the area for generations. As was the case for most farming families, Chris wasn’t an only child; he was the third of six little Millers. His eldest brother, Andrew Junior, was four years his senior, followed by Alexandra, himself, Jack, Jessica and little Frank. Frank was a real late-comer, fifteen years younger than Chris and born with cerebral palsy. Yet, in spite of being unexpected, unplanned, and not really wanted, he was the sunshine of the family, and Francine and Andrew knew better than to question the Lord’s wisdom.

Hans M Hirschi (b. 1967) has been writing stories ever since he was a child. Adulthood and the demands of corporate life efficiently put an end to his fictional writing for over twenty years. A global executive in training and channel development, Hans has traveled the world and had previously published non-fictional titles. The birth of his son and the subsequent parental leave provided him with the opportunity to unleash his creative writing once again. With little influence over his brain’s creative workings, he indulges it, going with the flow. A deeply rooted passion for, faith in a better world, in love, tolerance and diversity are a red thread throughout both his creative and non-fictional work. His novels might best be described as “literary romance, engaging characters and relevant stories that won’t leave you untouched, but hopeful.” Hans is a proud member of the Swedish Writers’ Union and the Writers’ Center in Sweden.
