YES, IT HAPPENS is the working title of my new contemporary young adult novel that is currently in New York seeking a literary agent.
YES, IT HAPPENS is about two sixteen-year-old boys who meet in their psychologists’ waiting room. One of the boys is an actor and athlete, and the other is heir to a multi-billion dollar Dallas oil fortune. The novel explores the relationship between these two scions as they struggle to come to terms with their traumatic pasts and forge meaningful identities in the present.
Set among the Texas oil rich, this story of friendship, secrets, and the healing power of love takes place in Houston, Dallas, and on a 12,000 acre ranch in Paradise.
