The Colours I See

TCIS 2.png

"The craftsmanship of this realistic portrayal of awakening to one's sexuality and exploring emotions, future goals and achievements are expertly done, taking us deep into the life of a group of young men who appear fated to have all found one another. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Colours I See as an emotive and thought-provoking reading experience, and certainly one for those who would like to stay with a character for a long time and really get to know them intimately."

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

"WOW, what a book! I have so many mixed emotions. The writing is incredible, the characters are so real, dealing with very real life issues.This book is a must read" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Amazon UK Review


Hyena Boy

"Golden evokes a beautiful sense of emotional atmosphere through the descriptions of both place and person, and the close narration allows us an intimate portrayal of Jay's mental state as he prepares to cut the ties which bind him to his past experiences. What results is a sweeping and evocative book with some beautifully intimate moments, and I would definitely recommend Hyena Boy to readers seeking deep and meaningful coming of age fiction. "

 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

"The book ripped my heart out. That's a compliment to the author. This is very much a recommended read for people who want a story about overcoming adversity."

⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Amazon US Review

"Hyena Boy blends a deep appreciation of the healing and redemptive power of first love and friendship with an unflinching- but not gratuitous- look at the physical and psychological tole of child abuse and domestic violence. The fantasy elements enhance rather than detract from the realism, quite literally bringing to life the inescapable bind that Jay finds himself trapped in."
