I was honoured last week to welcome C. Kennedy to Boys on the Brink. Brought up in Hollywood, Cody writes romantic LGBTQ fiction for young adults that seeks to raise awareness of the issues facing queer youth by tackling difficult subjects such as abuse and bullying.

Slaying Isidore’s Dragons explores the devastating effect prolonged sexual and physical violence can have on a young person, but also how, in the right environment and with support and understanding, it is possible to heal. If you haven’t picked this story up yet, be sure to head over to Boys on the Brink where you can read my review, sample an excerpt, and even enter to win yourself a copy!
