I’m pleased to announce my first Young Adult title, The Camp, is now available for preorder at Torquere Press, published by their imprint Prizm Books. This 95-page novella details the lives of a group of LGBT teens sent to a gay conversion camp and their struggle against authority in order to preserve their identities under harsh conditions. The Camp will be available August 5th.
Jesse Harvan comes home from school one day to find his parents have discovered the gay pornographic magazine hidden under his bed. Disgusted, they decide to send Jesse to Camp Grady, a summer camp which prides itself on converting people’s sexuality.
Once at the camp, Jesse meets the other inmates: Charlie, a disabled African-American gay teenager, Natalie, a transgender girl, her sister Lita, Japanese lesbian Sakura, and last of all, Minister Grady’s son Jacob, who works for the camp under duress. These teens must learn to bridge their differences and get along if they’re to beat their common enemy and keep their identities–and sanity–intact.
