This went live last night but for anyone who missed it, there’s an interview with me by Juliann Rich now up over at her blog Rainbow Tree. Check it out!
Juliann has a YA novel coming out in June called Caught in the Crossfire. I’m really looking forward to reading it:
Two boys at Bible camp; one forbidden love.
That is the dilemma sixteen-year-old Jonathan Cooper faces when he goes away to Spirit Lake Bible Camp, an oasis for teen believers situated along Minnesota’s rugged north shore. He is expecting a summer of mosquito bites, bonfires with S’mores, and photography classes with Simon, his favorite counselor, who always helps Jonathan see his life in perfect focus.
What he isn’t expecting is Ian McGuire, a new camper who openly argues against phrases like pray the gay away. Ian is certain of many things, including what could happen between them if only Jonathan could surrender to his feelings. Jonathan, however, tosses in a storm of indecision between his belief in God and his inability to stay away from Ian. When a real storm hits and Ian is lost in it, Jonathan is forced to make a public decision that changes his life.
Keep an eye on her author page at Bold Strokes Books for preorder information. I’ll be doing a Q&A with her closer to the release date for her novel. She’s both a PFLAG mom and the daughter of evangelical Christians, so I’m really looking forward to a conversation with her on sexuality, identity, and faith.
And her two chronically disobedient dachshunds, as I have a little experience with those myself!
