Kenneth Logan would prefer to forget his own high school experiences, so it’s anyone’s guess why he chose to (1) teach high school English and (2) write a novel about seventeen-year-olds. He wrote his book at a colleague’s suggestion: “This is the book you should write.” He’s in a doctoral program at New York University, where he studies language and literacy development. He lives in Brooklyn but enjoys escaping on outdoor adventures, especially in Vermont.
Kenneth’s debut novel, TRUE LETTERS FROM A FICTIONAL LIFE (Harper-Collins, Spring 2016), is a Young Adult Contemporary. A seventeen-year-old boy meets and falls for his first boyfriend. As their relationship deepens, he must decide whether to stay in the closet and remain quiet, safe, and sad, or find the courage to admit who he truly is to his rural hometown and to himself.
