Quick Update Regarding MY Novel SEBASTIAN'S POET...

I don't often mention my own works here. When I do it's usually to announce a new release, etc.

This update is to let it be known that my 2nd novel, SEBASTIAN'S POET, was just re-released on Kobobooks. It's available both there and over at Chapters-Indigo.

Sebastian's Poet was originally published in 2012 through Musa Publishing in USA. It won the 2007 Muskoka Novel Marathon's BEST ADULT NOVEL AWARD.

Please see below for the synopsis:

 Sebastian Nelson is a boy in search of a family. Abandoned by his mother, Sebastian is left with a broken father who doesn’t even seem present when he does show up. Forced to be the main caregiver of his younger brother, Renee, and lost in a sea of indifference, Sebastian only wants to experience the love a real, stable family could afford him.

One morning he discovers the famous folksinger, Teal Landen, asleep on the sofa. Teal’s nurturing nature brings an immediate sense of security into Sebastian’s tumultuous life. But a dark secret looms between Teal and Sebastian’s father of a hidden past. Sebastian is driven to discover their secret, but also he’s aware of how tenuous their hold on Teal really is. He doesn’t want to lose the feeling of home Teal’s presence has brought him.

If Sebastian pushes too hard, he could lose Teal forever. He could be destined to raise his younger brother alone, while witnessing the total decline of his emotionally devastated father. If Sebastian is abandoned by the only healthy influence in his otherwise shaky existence, he will also be forever in the dark about the secret that will reveal so much about his fractured family.
