Holidays at Buchons’

Four Stories of Love, Hope & Food

Four stories of love, hope & food.

Join the misfits around Buchons’ holiday table in four enchanting stories of second chances and new beginnings.

Mark and Brie’s marriage was easier to dissolve than their restaurant; working so closely after their divorce leaves them wondering if a sweet future might outweigh bitter memories.

Sami and Carlos find themselves navigating the line between friendship and passion, but their hearts aren’t the only ones on the line.

Holly and Drew each cross the country to escape loss, only to find the promise of a fresh start together.

Pete and Jessa definitely don’t like one another, or so they keep saying, but navigating the pandemic in the Buchons’ orbit might just prove them wrong.

Santiago has his work cut out for him as he helps bring together a collection of strays to create a family.

Nothing Goes Away

Book Cover: Nothing Goes Away
Part of the Women's Fiction series:

“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” ~ Pema Chodron

Angela Amman's debut collection of short fiction delves into the private shadows of three very distinct relationships. For these three women, there are lessons to embrace before they can release the turmoil which holds them back from hope.

"Cicada Song" tells the story of a mother's struggle with her daughter's attitude toward food, revealing her own fears and misgivings.

In "Splinters," a young woman on the brink of first love copes with secret pain she thought long buried and banished.

"Scents of Iron and Pine" explores the depth of subtle cruelty and self-delusion a wife is willing to endure to hold her family together.

Angela Amman's writing is lyrical, powerful, and truly wonderful. I love how much psychology and intense emotion--sometimes disturbing emotion--she packs into a short tale.
