Seriously? A ROCK MUSICAL about BIPOLAR DISORDER? As the guy next to me said at intermission, “What happened to musicals with rainbows and butterflies and happy endings?” Believe me, there are no winners in this story.--A review of the very moving, very uncomfortable, 'next to normal'

No good deed goes unpunished, and for seventeen-year-old Isaiah Martin, that’s certainly the case. The gun he was caught with wasn’t even his, for God’s sake. He only had it to keep a friend from doing something stupid. No one wants to hear it though, and Isaiah is banished—or so it seems to him—to live with his missionary father in politically conflicted Cameroon, Africa.
However, when he arrives, his father is so busy doing his good deeds that he sends Henry, the young, surprisingly hot do-gooder with a mysterious past, to pick up Isaiah and keep him out of trouble. Even while Isaiah is counting down the days until he can go home, he and Henry get caught in the political unrest of the region. Kidnapped by militant forces, the two have to work together to survive until they are rescued—unless they manage to find a way to save each other first.

YA LGBT Charity Book Drive Benefiting Lambert House in Seattle

Needless to say, when I cam across an opportunity to support a couple of causes near and dear to my heart--ensuring LGBT youth services, and providing books to those who need them, I was THRILLED.

Yes, yes, yes---to supporting Lambert House and the book drive.

This might be an appropriate time to share about Teaching Tolerance (Google for more info). The site, sponsored by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is an amazing place to find more information about causes such as those involving LGBT youth.   There are countless fantastic resources on their site that honor, support and promote understanding and equality.  A great place for teachers and those who are just plain concerned about fighting bias.

Story
Tagline
Author of LGBT YA & NA Romance. Reader of all things romance.
Introduction
j. leigh bailey is an office drone by day and the author of Young Adult LGBT Romance by night. She can usually be found with her nose in a book or pressed up against her computer monitor.  A book-a-day reading habit sometimes gets in the way of... well, everything...but some habits aren't worth breaking. She's been reading romance novels since she was ten years old. The last twenty years or so have not changed her voracious appetite for stories of romance, relationships and that achieving that vitally important Happy Ever After.  She's a firm believer that everyone, no matter their gender, age, sexual orientation or paranormal affiliation deserves a happy ending. 
 
She wrote her first story at seven which was, unbeknownst to her at the time, a charming piece of fan-fiction in which Superman battled (and defeated, of course) the nefarious X Luther. She was quite put out to be told, years later, that the character's name was actually Lex. Her second masterpiece should have been a best-seller, but the action-packed tale of rescuing her little brother from an alligator attack in the marshes of Florida collected dust for years under the bed instead of gaining critical acclaim.
 
Now she writes Young Adult LGBT Romance novels about boys traversing the crazy world of love, relationships and acceptance. 
 
I'm a proud member of Romance Writers of America, Windy City Chapter of RWA, and Rainbow Writers of America.
