Light Up the Dark

lightupthedark-f

Published 24th April

For two years Nicky has wandered the dark empty corridors of the overgrown Thorn Hall, unseen and untouched, feeling like a ghost. His only company, the cold man who promised to keep him safe from harm, Lance.
But when Lance dies, Nicky’s assurance of safety disintegrates and his world suddenly becomes a lot more real and a lot more dangerous. Scared to leave the house, Nicky longs for daylight. He employs a gardener to clear the over-grown bushes and vines that have nearly swallowed Thorn Hall whole.
The last thing Nicky expects a little light to do is show him something to fight for.

Eighteen months in a young offenders’ institute has taught Cai two things: he occupies the playful puppy end of the How Dangerous Are You? spectrum, and he has an unfortunate knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Desperate for a job, he takes the first offer he gets. Even though Thorn Hall creeps the hell out of him and he barely knows one end of a pair of garden shears from the other.
Things start to fall apart when Cai is drawn into Nicky’s strange world of sticky notes and secrets. Cai finds he is now a target, blamed for a crime he didn’t commit. Desperate not to go back to prison, he digs deep and risks all the good things in life to help Nicky run.
But now Nicky has someone he wants to protect, he knows he can’t run any more.

This Is Not a Love Story (Harmony Ink Press) Published May 22nd 2014

Finalist in the 2015 Lambda Awards

Rainbow Awards 2014 Winner Best Gay Debut

WinnerLG

When fifteen-year-old Romeo’s mother leaves one day and doesn’t return, he finds himself homeless and trying to survive on the streets. Mute and terrified, his silence makes him vulnerable, and one night he is beaten by a gang of other kids, only to be rescued by a boy who pledges to take care of him.

Julian is barely two years older than Romeo. A runaway from an abusive home, he has had to make some difficult choices and sells himself on the street to survive. Taking care of Romeo changes him, gives him a purpose in life, gives him hope, and he tries to be strong and keep his troubles with drugs behind him. But living as they do is slowly destroying him, and he begins to doubt he can be strong enough.

This is the story of their struggle to find a way off the streets and stay together at all costs. But when events threaten to tear them apart, it is Romeo who must find the strength within himself to help Julian (and not let their love story turn into a Shakespearean tragedy).

Honorable mentions for This is Not a Love Story from this year’s Rainbow Awards (2014)

“Hard topic beautifully written. This is a love story that works on many levels–it’s true to life, tough, harsh, and yet hopeful. It made me think, but most importantly it made me feel. A marvelous debut novel.”

“This is truly a gripping story of teenagers—one mute with an artistic gift, one damaged inside but with a beautiful  spirit—but this is NOT a teenage story.  There are tears, abuse, homelessness, grief, loss, more loss, and then. .  .well, it is not a love story, but it IS a story about love.  And sacrifice.  And where home really is.”

“I just couldn’t find anything that didn’t deserve the highest rating. This is a book that will stay long with you after you finished reading it. Usually I am not such a happy end person, but for these characters I desperately needed a happy end – anything else would have been devastating. Luckily I have no experience with homelessness, but to me the descriptions of their struggles felt real and I was caring deeply for the characters – not only for the main characters Romeo and Julian, but also for the ones they meet on their way. Books like these are the reason why I love participating in the Jury of the Rainbow Awards so much, because I don’t know if I would have otherwise found and read this book.”

Raw, painful, sometimes difficult to read but also fully engaging in its characters and their struggles.

This book captivated me from the first page. The writing, characterization and plot drew me in and kept me invested until the very last page. I loved this book.

    I really enjoyed “This Is Not a Love Story.” It was the first Harmony Ink Press book I read, and it introduced me to “The Glass House” and “Slaying Isidore’s Dragons.” Both really good reads. Thanks for writing! ♥
