Join host Tom Riddell and co-host Teri Brown as they welcome author Paul Lamb to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Paul discusses what it's like to be a writer and he will also talk to us about his book: One-Match Fire

One- Match Fire is about a lakeside cabin in the woods, where three generations of men, in one family, go to find peace and a bonding that isn't always possible in the complexities of their lives. A grandfather, a son and a grandson find a connection with one another there. The grandfather built it, enabling him to learn how to be a dad after his own father abandoned him and his son becomes a father at a very young age and struggles to please his son, who is hiding a secret that he fears could destroy any hopes he has to strengthen his relationship with his father.

During the course of decades, they cut wood, built campfires, went skinny-dipping, cleared the land, learned the rituals like searching for ticks, learning to swim and to fish and to just be themselves in an environment that they could appreciate and love- together. It was a place where love had the opportunity to grow between them. Family traditions helped that process along but as in most relationships, self-doubt and an inadequacy in their roles as father, son and grandson can be huge obstacles in bringing true harmony to a family lost in its own flaws and fears. How will this family survive and learn the lessons that this special place had to offer?
