The Long Way Home

The Long Way Home

They say you can’t go home again, but Raine St. James doesn’t know why anyone would want to.

Rory St. James was disowned after she came out at seventeen. She rebounded by moving to Chicago, changing her name to Raine and putting down her hometown to audiences around the country. Now, ten years later, too old to be considered a gay youth, broke, evicted, and fresh off a much needed break-up, Raine St. James is forced to accept a job teaching at Bramble University in Darlington, the town she’s been publicly bashing for the last decade.

Beth Devoroux was born and raised in Darlington. Despite losing her parents at a young age, she is well loved by everyone who knows her. She leads a comfortable life with good job at Bramble University, a long-term but closeted relationship, friends that she can count on, and everything she thinks she wants, so why is she so drawn to a rabble-rouser like Raine St. James?

Can Raine and Beth face their pasts and come to terms with their differences in order to have any hope for a future together?

The Back Story on The Long Way Home

The Long Way Home was born partly out of my love/hate relationship with my own home town.  Here is a video I made of some of the places in that home town – you may or may not see them reflected in the book itself.

And since the book is about getting back to your roots, here’s a video I made with some of my small town upbringing, as well as some shots of me raising my own son in that small town environment.

Also here’s a vlog of me and Carsen Taite chatting about The Long Way Home.
