Fiction. Indiefab Book of the Year 2014 finalist, DISPENSATIONS pitches teens and adults with drug and alcohol problems against aging and ill- prepared parents. Thomas's characters test the boundaries of family responsibility. Blind to each other's needs and feelings, they are haunted by visions of what their lives might have been and might still be.

"Without the slightest hint of sentimentality Thomas evokes] a great, unspoken compassion for all who are broken, lost, or forgotten." James Wilcox.
