Matthew is going insane. How else can he explain remembering things he doesn’t own or trips his wife never took? Not to mention the visions, and the phantom in the café. But when the man in the visions reaches out to him with an explanation, and the phantom from the café tracks him down, things start to make a little more sense.
Morgan is a devout Christian. He believes in God, Heaven, Hell, and the Bible. But his world spins out of control when his husband Matthew disappears and a mysterious man tells a tale outside the realm of reality. How can Morgan put his faith in something so far-fetched? And what will happen to Matthew if he doesn't?
New Release Day Extra:
There's sort of an interesting tale behind this story. My husband and I bought a house several years ago and moved into a new neighborhood. When he started exploring the neighborhood, he realized there were house numbers 136, 138, and 139, but no 137. He asked around and the answers were puzzling – some people remembered a 137, and some swore there'd never been one. He related his findings to me one night and said, "You know, there's a story there. You should write it." A few weeks later, I started working on "137 Owens Street," which I affectionately nicknamed "Hubby's Story." As I worked, I kept waiting for the Big Sex Scene, but it just wasn't happening. I became frustrated, because my stories are known for their sex. I like writing it. But these guys just wouldn't get it on! I put the story away for a week or so, and then it finally hit me – my husband doesn't like to read explicit sex in any story. Somehow, the characters must've known that. "137 Owens Street" really was Hubby's story after all!
