Today, I’d like to introduce you to a talented new writer and his amazing short story!
Not Even There, by J. Scott Sharp:
Roger met Libby for the first time and would do anything to be with her. She's beautiful and popular. He and his best friend are not. Quite the opposite. But then his friend tells him a secret and Roger's whole life goes into a tailspin that he may never get out of.
It could be a matter of life and death.
"I have been a writer all of my life, but finally decided to lose my mind and do something about it at 46 years old. I am currently hard at work on a contemporary suspense/mystery novel entitled "Marble Summer Riot"
I have a degree in psychology. It qualifies me for nothing, but pretending that I know why you are acting the way you are."
Barnes & Noble
In "Not Even There," J Scott Sharp proves that, while he may not be there, he is most assuredly here. This tragic tale weaves together the complicated strands of teen angst, friendship, dysfunctional relationships, love, lust, and obsession in a masterful package that is fraught with tension and emotion.
Be sure to check out Not Even There and let me (and J.) know what you think! Stop back on Wednesday for another look at Sharp's work.
