It’s always fun when friends drop by and today is no exception! Author Travis Luedke (aka T.W. Luedke) is a versatile writer with a new Young Adult book, The Shepherd. A departure from his steamy, sexy adult series, The Nightlife, this edgy new novel is a welcome addition to the YA Paranormal genre.

About The Shepherd
Mike Evans here. Sixteen year old skate punk squatting in a white-trash trailer park with my loser drunk Dad. Seems I lost most of my friends when Dad lost our home in foreclosure. Only Anita stuck by me. Worse, I keep having strange clairvoyant visions of things that always come true.
Then I almost ran over Nadia in my Geo. A passing truck finished the job – left a crumpled heap of skin and bone on the road. I fixed her. Me.
Now this fourteen year old girl won’t leave me alone. I sorta let her sneak in my window when she needs a place to crash.
I have a double life: daytime at school, Anita, skating, and then my nights with Nadia. She’s my secret friend, gives me money and listens to my problems when nobody else will.
My world is spinning out of control. Old friends have turned enemy, my grisly visions of death won’t quit, and Anita’s intentions make my head spin. Even with all that, I’ve got bigger stuff to worry about.
Nadia’s hiding something.
Excerpts from Episode 24
Travis on why he wrote The Shepherd: “I had always wanted to write a Young Adult novel, primarily so my kids could read something I had written.”
Travis on the The Shepherd versus The Nightlife series: “Even though the content is quite a bit more risqué in The Nightlife series, there’s a lot of similarity in my writing style, a lot of similarity in subject matter.”
Adults Only – 18+
The Nightlife Series is violent, sexy, and occasionally violently sexy.
