 Due to circumstances out of my control, my new YA book, Light Outside The Closet has been pushed back for two weeks. I was ill and my doctor made me take a week long break. Since this is the book of my heart, I didn't want to rush it and asked my publisher for an extension, which they graciously gave me. Fear not, though, the book will be available March 1st. To tide you over, I thought that I would tease you with a brief blurb, so you give you a little taste of what to expect. Have no worries, though, Shane's Valentine's Day book will still be coming out on the4 15th ;-)

Being a gay teen is hard enough, but when Christian's strict father is transferred to a different city and Christian has to go to a new school, he discovers how much worse things can get. Fortunately, before he sinks into depression, Christian finds a new group of friends, who are also gay. Christian soon learns that his friends have their own problems, from desperately seeking attention to abusive family members.

This is the first book in an exciting new series that follows the high and lows of Christian and his friends through their senior year as they seek acceptance and love while dealing with hostility and homophobia. Will all of them survive to see graduation... or will they lose somebody along the way?


  1. I hope that you are feeling better now, Stephani.
    It was so nice that your publisher allowed the extension. Another author friend of mine wasn't so lucky.
    Thanks for the blurb. I've marked my calendar for March 1st and look forward to reading Light Outside the Closet and this new series.


  2. Thanks, Sharon, I am finally feeling better and moving around. I have FM and it's been kicking my butt lately.
