Having just completed work on my sixth Novel, Tru Luv Kills: A Teenage Bonnie & Clyde I thought I would give you a brief insight into what it's all about.
Tru Luv Kills
Love is a Dirty Word.
It's Looking for Alibrandi bred with Law and Order.
Catcher in the Rye meshed with Natural Born Killers.
Based on a true story of two teens who fall in love, resulting in a murder. Some people just shouldn't be together.
A frightening analysis into today's teens, told from the perspective of a sixteen year old girl. Youth crime, racism, depression, sex and pregnancy, drugs, alcohol, school yard violence, family crisis's and the education system. Being a kid is hard work.
But a teen murder is just too easy.
One plus One equals a whole lot of trouble.
Nothing can stop them from being together.
It took me exactly one year to write, the first draft exactly six months, to the day. I didn't plan it that way and I don't know if it necessarily means anything but that's how it went. It's 77,000 words. I had hoped it would be shorter but it is what it is. I'm searching for an agent for this one. It's hard to be subjective about your own work, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I'll keep you updated on any progress.
(2021 Update. I plan to release this book in 2023. I think it's my best book.)
