I am currently working with a new, self-published author Alex Carlisle. Alex has written a great coming-of-age novel, basically a romantic thriller with a hint of comedy… below are some more details…
A Romantic Thriller with a touch of Humour
Greg has just left home for the first time. Now he is free to do whatever he wants. Fresher’s week is an endless party that lasts till Christmas and at long last girls are into him, even Heather, but there is so much more to the most beautiful girl he has ever met and her strange and obsessive friend, Anna.
Is there anything Anna won’t do to get what she wants? A gun is easy to come by, especially in America, but is it so easy to use?
Are Anna, Greg and Heather really who they seem?
An innovative novel told from two points of view – Greg’s, in the third person, and Anna’s – who tells her story by confiding in her journal, Loving Heather is a hybrid, part thriller and part love story.
It is gently paced, being detailed in the beginning then becoming faster and more exhilarating. Simple, yet intelligent, it begins as a coming-of-age novel but is also a novel for adults. Funny, yet serious, set in student-ville in the UK, Ireland and the gritty real worlds of America and Europe.
It has mass international appeal, deals with obsession, alcohol, drugs, love, hate, sex, travel, growing up, loneliness, the nature of studying literature itself, class, stalking, murder and so much more, yet can neatly fit into the thrillers category seamlessly.
About The Author
Alex writes every word for pure pleasure, starting as a teenager writing stories at school in Ireland motivated by the promise of the teacher of no homework for the best story… Alex often had no homework to do. Born in England but growing up in Ireland near the sea, Alex enjoyed looking out at the deep blue through the school window dreaming of travelling, adventure and more stories. Alex has worked as a feature writer for a number of magazines but novels are Alex’s first Love.
Loving Heather is a great coming-of-age story…
“The underlying message for teenagers is a very encouraging on: Hang in there, you’ll get there”
