Crazy teaserNEW



  Close portrait

The problem with crazy is that crazy, by itself, has no context. It can be good crazy, bad crazy … or crazy crazy—like it was when my ex-boyfriend sung about me on the radio. Eighteen-year-old Kate couldn’t be more excited about finishing high school and spending the summer on tour with her boyfriend’s band. Her dad showing up drunk at graduation, however, is not exactly kicking things off on the right foot—and that’s before she finds out about his mystery illness, certain to end in death. A mystery illness she could inherit. Kate has to convince everyone that her father is sick, not crazy. But who will be harder to convince? Her friends? Or herself? The Problem With Crazy is a story about love and life; about overcoming obstacles, choosing to trust, and learning how to make the choices that will change your life forever. *10% of sales will be donated to Huntington’s NSW, a charity that supports families impacted by Huntington’s disease


The Problem With Crazy sale coincides with the release of the brand new trailer for this book, produced by Top Spot Digital

“And there is something else we need to tell you, dear.”
            “Deb, not now. Give ‘er a rest,” Dad interjected, his voice sounding ever more weary with each passing word.
            “What? Tell me.” My fingers clenched into tiny fists. “What could possibly be worse than what you’ve already said?” I felt Dave place his arm protectively around my shoulders.
            “Maybe we should wait.” Mum eyed Dave’s hand.
            “Anything you have to say, you can say in front of him.” I shook my head. “He’s family. You know that.” Dave and I locked eyes, and he gave me a special little smile.
            “Kate, it’s not a good time.” Mum’s voice was shrill. My heart was beating like a jackhammer, thud-thud-thud, over and over in double-time.
            “If you don’t tell me now, I’ll Google it. I’ll just search the disease and see what I can find. We both will.”
            Silence. Dave took my hand in his, clasping his other hand around it so I was protected entirely within his palms. Mum and Dad looked at each other, her lips pursed, his still loose.
            “The disease your father has …” Mum paused. I nodded at her. Go on.
Just tell me. Get it over with.
“It’s hereditary.”
            I struggled to breathe as Dave’s fingers slowly unlaced themselves from mine.
