Read full description of the books L'ordine della quercia velenosa:Russel Middlebrook, lo studente della Robert L. Goodking High School già protagonista di "Geography Club", insieme agli amici Min e Gunnar ha fondato il gruppo gay-etero e bisessuale del liceo. E questo non ha fatto di lui lo studente più popolare della scuola. Anzi. Finisce l'anno scolastico e con gli amici di sempre decide di lavorare come animatore in un campo estivo. Appena arrivato al campo, si invaghisce di un altro animatore, certo Web, un fusto molto disinvolto, che ama immergersi nudo nel laghetto del campo, ma che sembra più attratto dalla sua amica Min. Una storia che avrà svolte e sviluppi imprevisti e anche inquietanti. A occupare, però, il tempo di Russel Middlebrook è anche un gruppo di pestiferi bambini di dieci anni, accomunati dall'essere ustionati gravi. Con loro stabilisce presto un rapporto di forte vicinanza, visto che, come ricorda lo stesso Russel, "So cosa significa essere considerato uno stereotipo; so cosa significa essere giudicato negativamente e in modo frettoloso". Proprio il rapporto con quei bambini porterà Russel a una maggiore consapevolezza di sé e dei propri valori.
Read information about the authorI am Brent Hartinger, and I live to write.
For the last twenty years, I have made my living writing just about everything that involves words.
My latest project is a trilogy of "new adult" novels called Russel Middlebrook: The Futon Years. They're about a gay guy in his twenties, Russel Middlebrook, trying to make sense out of love and life.
The books in Russel Middlebrook: The Futon Years are:
* The Thing I Didn't Know I Didn't Know (book #1)
* Barefoot in the City of Broken Dreams (book #2)
* The Road to Amazing (book #3)
I wrote previously about this character in a young adult series called the Russel Middlebrook Series. The first book in that series, my 2003 gay teen novel Geography Club, was adapted as a feature film in 2013, starring Scott Bakula, Marin Hinkle, Ana Gasteyer, Justin Deeley, and Nikki Blonsky.
In order, the books in The Russel Middlebrook Series are:
* Geography Club (book #1)
* The Order of the Poison Oak (book #2)
* Double Feature: Attack of the Soul-Sucking Brain Zombies/Bride of the Soul-Sucking Brain Zombies (book #3)
* The Elephant of Surprise (book #4)
* Two Thousand Pounds Per Square Inch (a free short story)
For the record, I try hard to write books that people *like* to read. The most frequent comment I get from readers is that my books are "page-turners," which makes me very happy, because that is exactly what I want them to be. If I had to describe my own books, I would say, "Strong central concept, strong plot, strong character and voice, and usually lots of humor." (I may not always succeed in creating these things, but they're what I always strive for.)
My biggest complaint with books I hate is that they don't get to the point (or, worse, they don't have a point!). I get frustrated that so many books have a cliche or overdone central concept, or that they're all atmosphere and world-building (or "beautiful language," in the case of some literary novels) with no real story.
Basically, I see myself as a storyteller. I think the important thing for a writer is to get out of the way and just tell the damn story.
My second great love is screenwriting and playwriting. I've won lots of screenwriting awards and have several movie projects in very active development.
Meanwhile, my plays have been performed at dozens of theaters. And I adapted Geography Club into a stage play, which has now been produced all over the country.
In addition, I'm the co-host of a bi-weekly podcast, Media Carnivores, which covers media-related news and opinion (and also honest writing advice and updates on my career).
I sometimes teach writing, in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College and elsewhere, and I'm sometimes available as an editor-for-hire.
And I also do a fair bit of charity work, including a brand new enterprise, The Real Story Safe Sex Project, using entertainment and pop culture to help gay teens and twentysomethings fight HIV/AIDS.
I live in Seattle, Washington, with my partner since 1992, Michael Jensen. Michael is also a writer, the author of two terrific gay westerns, Frontiers, and its sequel, Firelands. Together with our friend Sarah Warn, we co-founded a very successful entertainment website called AfterElton.com that was eventually acquired by MTV/Logo (but we don't work there anymore).
