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: On Coming Out

“How did you know?”
“I don’t honestly remember when I began to realize. It was just…” Neil paused, trying to come up with an example. “You know when you watch a show on TV, and the guy falls for the girl? For me, every fiber in my body screamed ‘No! Pick the best friend instead, or the pizza guy, or whoever. But not the girl!’ And I’d see people falling for someone and I just couldn’t fathom the logic. Men falling for women and vice versa—it made no sense to me. But I didn’t have a word for it, couldn’t figure out what it meant for me, because everything I see on TV seems wrong, and I instinctively knew that this was not how it would be for me.”

At fifteen, Jessica had hit puberty head-on, and she had been a force to be reckoned with. Their mother had spent the two years since doing her best to make sure her second daughter didn’t end up in the same situation as her older sister, and a recent conversation on boys and sex must have triggered something in Jessica.
“Say, Chris, how come you don’t have a girlfriend?”
It was the most harmless question, really. Perfectly natural. After all, at his age, Alexandra already had three children and had been married for four years. Why wouldn’t Jessica ask a question like that? But for Chris, it came as a shock, and although he knew the answer wouldn’t be welcome—given his Christian upbringing and his family’s strong faith—he also knew that the Lord teaches us “thou shalt not lie,” so he simply said, “Maybe because I’m gay?” and hoped it would end the discussion.”
*Excerpt From: Hans M Hirschi. “Spanish Bay.” iBooks.

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.
