Arthur and Teddy Are Coming Out. It's finally happening! My debut novel will be published by the incredible team at HQ in April 2023. I can't believe I can finally type that sentence. The last few months have been a total whirlwind, but I can't wait to enjoy every little bit of the whole experience. This has been a lifelong dream, so I am going to savour every second. Yesterday was an incredible moment for me. Getting to this point has been tough, so to wake up on my 33rd birthday and see myself on The Bookseller was quite emotional. So! Arthur and his grandson Teddy. I can't wait for you to meet these guys. What's it all about? Here's the official synopsis: “Seventy-nine-year-old Arthur Edwards has spent a lifetime in the closet, but now he’s finally ready to live the life he never felt he could. Twenty-one-year-old Teddy has friends who know he is gay, but he is not quite ready to tell his family. The two men have always been close, and now they will have to rely on each other as they navigate their way through old heartbreak and new love while learning to accept who they are.” This is a story about being who you are, the close bonds of family and friends and grabbing every single moment to live your life. We all deserve that. It doesn't matter what age we are, be you. I can't wait to share Arthur and Teddy and their stories with everyone. They've made me cry and laugh (and cry again) over the last year. I'm going to try and blog about as much of the next year as possible on here. Thank you so much for all the love and support so far, I hope you'll stick with me on the next stage of this crazy little journey!
