In The Middle of Nowhere
Homeless, plagued by nightmares from an abusive childhood, nineteen-year-old Tyler Bishop does whatever he can to escape his pain. Drugs, alcohol, everything’s game—at least until handsome Dean Henderson struts into his life and shows him a better way. For two years, Dean’s love and friendship give Tyler the strength to face his demons instead of running.
Then tragedy strikes.
When a drunk driver kills his parents and severely injures his eleven-year-old sister, Emily, Dean panics. With Emily facing years of extensive—not to mention expensive—rehabilitation, he needs health insurance fast. Forcing himself back into the closet, Dean drops out of college and enlists in the Army. For two years, he plays the perfect soldier, but the pressure of pretending to be someone he’s not is suffocating.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed.
Out on walkabout after a painful emotional setback, Tyler isn’t prepared for the backlash of seeing Dean again. Face to face for the first time in five years, sparks—and tempers!—fly. Before sanity catches up with them, they’re locked in a fierce kiss. But with Dean about to deploy and Tyler wrestling new demons is a reconciliation possible? Or is their reunion doomed before it even begins?
Every individual deserves to be respected for who they are, but unfortunately, not everyone shares this belief. Far too many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender youth report they've been harassed or assaulted because of their sexual orientation, and as a mom of a girl who's not like the other girls her age, that breaks my heart. So in her honor, I'm donating 10 percent of the royalties from this book to The Trevor Project, a 24-hour suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth, with the hope that, one day, organizations like this will no longer be needed.
