I've enjoyed a number of Travis Thrasher's adult novels but his latest is the second in his Solitary Tales YA stories, Gravestone. Chris is the main character in both books, the first being Solitary.
Over to you, Travis:~
Brief physical description Chris Buckley is a tall and thin sixteen year old with blondish/brown hair & blue eyes Actor/famous person
Picture a teenaged Heath Ledger Strengths and weaknesses
Strengths: brave, doesn't back down, curious, witty, caring Weaknesses: stubborn, doesn't back down, doesn't like being told what to do, curious, can't help falling for a pretty girl despite how bad it might be for him, teenager Quirk (if any)
Several voices going on in his head at all time.
Your inspiration for the character
I was a teenager once.
Background to the story
I went to four different high schools and made a big move during my high school years from North Carolina to Chicago. This series is about a fictitious NC town along with some of my experiences in high school.
Thanks Travis ~ good to have you here. Love the Aussie connection with you and Heath Ledger ;-)
