The Dime

What started as a short, short story, that morphed into a novella, that morphed into a 80,000 word novel, and could be more, is now live on Amazon. The Dime is what I like to describe as This Is Us meets young adults. Lily and Sophie were orphaned at a young age. Peter has an abusive father and neglectful mother. They come together in the town of Northville in a found family, reconnecting with joy and love, while continuing to deal with more trauma and drama.

Here’s what Kirkus Reviews has to say about the book. Shorter Kirkus:

Paxson’s slice-of-life novel presents an unusual kind of found family in a story that’s character-driven and compelling.

About kingmidget

About the name. I was the youngest of four. Until I got to kindergarten, I didn't have much to say. All I had to do to get what I wanted was to point, and a sibling, or loving parent, would fulfill my request. As a result, my father coined the nickname -- King Midget. At least that's the way the story goes. I am a father, husband, friend, and lover, writer, runner, pizza maker, baker, and many other things. What I am not is my occupation. It is my job that pays the bills and provides for my family. But, it does not define me.
