Ever since Harry Potter and the Twilight series launched into the young adult fiction world, there’s been an onslaught of similar fiction by authors trying in vain to ride the coattails of that magical, witchy, super-power wave. Too many have missed the mark, but not this read!!
The Boy Who Couldn’t Fly Straight is Jeff Jacobson’s debut novel, the first in an exciting Young Adult trilogy about a fifteen-year old boy who must come to terms with accepting two things about himself.
“Closeted high school sophomore Charlie Creevey finds his world ripped apart when he learns that he hails from a family of witches. He must face his own inner demons in order to stop an evil coven from hunting down and kidnapping teenagers in the greater Seattle area.
Will Charlie refuse to accept who he is, or will he acknowledge the truth, in order to stay alive and protect the people he loves?

Jeff Jacobson’s Journey
Jeff Jacobson was born in Seattle in 1968, and grew up enchanted by the lush landscape, the long summer days, and the short winter nights of the Pacific Northwest.
Once, when he was a wee kindergartner, his grandmother let slip that she was a “modern witch, who flew on a vacuum cleaner over his house at night to protect him.”
Jeff had seen her vacuum cleaner. The cord wasn’t long enough to reach his house.
But in bed that night, left alone with creaky sounds and branches scraping over window frames, he decided that having a witch for a grandmother wasn’t such a bad thing. Even if it weren’t true…

I love books, YA lit, writing, witches, issues that affect teens (LGBTQQ as well as straight), etc. If you have an event that would benefit from a passionate, funny, kooky witchy kinda guy, let’s talk!
