Tim Parks, a celebrity journalist, freelance writer and author, has completed his new book “The Scheme of Things”: a passionately crafted work that portrays the beauty in secrets and the deceit in lies. This book explores the emotional roller-coaster one goes through with sexual identity. This story depicts the life of Henry Dodge and his struggle to confront and overcome his social fears.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Tim Parks’s heartbreaking and humorous work captivates the reader through the life struggles and personal revelations of the main character.

“The Scheme of Things”, a coming-of-age story with a thriller twist, poses the question: Have you ever had a secret? For young Henry Dodge, every day is an exercise in keeping his. Whether it’s his sketchbook falling into the hands of his older brother, John, or saying the wrong thing to his parents Big Ed and Kate, which may tip them off to the fact that he knows he is different. He would rather spend his afternoons with his friend Kelley, perfecting their disco moves than join in with the neighborhood boys and their sporting ways.

When Danny Woodson moves into the neighborhood and becomes his brother’s best friend, Henry’s world is turned upside down, as his attraction to him is electrifying.

In an effort to find a place to hide, Henry turns to TV, movies and music that provide him a great escape, a solace, which he can’t get from the world-at-large. Unfortunately, the nighttime soap operas of the 80’s plant the seeds of a scheme that involves running away to find Danny in Los Angeles.

But the City of Angels holds only devils in disguise, backstabbing and heartache, as Henry thinks he has found shelter in The Palace of King George and his court of supporting players.

In a tale that is equal parts comedy and heartbreak, Henry struggles to find acceptance and eventually going against the grain to find his place in the scheme of things.

Readers who wish to experience this profound work can purchase “The Scheme of Things” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
