Damaged Hearts

When 19-year-old military veteran Brandon Hawkins
is attacked on Venice Beach by a gang of frat boys, he
is saved by Michelangelo Curtis, a passerby.
Michelangelo was roaming the boardwalk grieving the
death of his twin brother six months earlier. The two
men’s unexpected encounter forges a strong bond
between the damaged and lonely men.
Inviting the homeless Bran to his place for some food
and a shower, 25-year-old Michelangelo finds himself
drawn to the younger man. Neither of the men is gay.
But before long, their friendship morphs into
something like love and takes them both by surprise.
And they have something else in common: The frat
boys are out for revenge.

About the Author:

Jan St. Marcus grew up in the suburbs of Washington,
D.C., and has traveled all over the world during his
military service. A professional photographer, he has
lived in many places, and is proud to call the D.C. area
home once again. This is the author’s debut novel,
which was inspired by his encounter with a young,
homeless veteran in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.
“He earned a Bronze Star in the Marines and I was
shocked at how little help there was for him and the
thousands of other homeless U.S. military veterans.”
He is currently working on two more novels in the
Boys of Venice Beach Series, loosely based on people
he met when he was living in Venice Beach,
