My Young Adult novels

Post by BassGuitarGirl on Sat Mar 09, 2013 11:37 pm

When I first started writing, I tried my hand at Fantasy/Science Fiction, but those were short stories and a long time ago. And they were not very good. Fast forward years later. Growing ever-resentful of my marginalized status as a lesbian in this world, I had to find a voice or implode! I decided to write for young adults who may also feel as voiceless as I did.

I also hope that not-so-young adults enjoy my stories and perhaps think back fondly on their own "young adult" days.  Smile

Coming Out Stories: Many of my stories have phrases like Marlee's Story or Lisa's Story after the main part of the title. The "story" is basically the main teenage character's COMING OUT story. I want young people to have role models (even fictional ones) that they can model their own behavior after or that they can see having a relatively positive experiences with the whole "OMG, I'm gay" moment we all had.

I have had a blast writing these, and it gives my heart great joy when a fan writes to find out when the next book will be coming out (pardon the pun). I laugh because it reminds me how impatient kids are (remember those days? When you were in such a hurry to get on with life!?).

Anyway, I'm hoping that my books are helping the younger generation in some small way.  Very Happy
