Today I'm over at Joselyn Vaughn's amazing blog. I'm very excited about this visit because the spotlight is being shone on my very first young adult novella, BLACKBIRD FLIES.
It's a contemporary, coming-of-age book revolved around a fifteen-year old young man named Payton MacGregor. The story, although dark and touching on some tough issues (eg: bipolar disorder, drug abuse, teen suicide, etc.), is a good one and one I think many teens can relate to.
Payton shows how teens can face some really high hurdles but be able to make good choices, no matter what the pressures are. He is a musical progidy who turns to his talents...his gift...rather than becoming a statistic. He shows us that you can be surrounded with chaos and negativity but still turn out okay by reaching out to that one positive light that keeps you moving forward, and having that one amazing person behind you to guide you in that direction. And I truly hope that message is felt by anyone who reads it.
So, please, stop on by Joselyn's blog when you have a chance and 'meet' Payton, his family and his love interest Lily.
