Hey guys,

For all of you who may have enjoyed Caleb’s Stories, my fictionalized series about teens in queer conversion therapy, here’s a quick head’s up about a similar project starting today. Running Toward Hope features a cast of somewhat older LGBTQ youth, gay and trans, struggling with family rejection, homelessness, and sexual exploitation.

Set in New York City, the characters and plot-lines are drawn largely from the lives of real people I’ve known. Though I’ve spiced things up for exciting story telling.

I hope you enjoy it, and that it gives you food for thought this winter holiday season.
