Editorial Reviews


"Brad Boney's debut novel, The Nothingness of Ben, is absolutely amazing. It is a beautiful story of love and hope that will completely captivate you as the Walsh siblings and Travis Atwood become a family following a terrible loss. I never felt like I was reading a book. Instead, I felt like I was right there with the characters, experiencing their emotions and reactions to events as they occurred. The Nothingness of Ben is a quiet but incredibly compelling novel. A+ and a Recommended Read." -Book Reviews & More by Kathy

"What I enjoyed the most is the slow development of Travis and Ben's relationship. Their friendship is a thing of beauty, and they have the most fun dialogue ever."
-Pants Off Reviews

"Brad Boney's debut novel 
The Nothingness of Ben is well written, filled with characters of surprising humanity and originality; a romantic comedy where engaging, decent, funny people try to do the best they can to help one another through a difficult time." -Jessewave

"The brothers are a joy, each with his own personality, hopes, and dreams. None are cookie-cutter characters, but each shines as he must deal with the much older Ben. And Travis is the frosting on the cake, holding the entire piece snugly together. This is a book that will live in the hearts of readers for a very long time. As for myself, I can't wait to read Boney's next book. A Desert Isle Keeper Review."
-All About Romance

A Lambda Literary Awards finalist.

Brad Boney lives in Austin, Texas, the 7th gayest city in America. He grew up in the Midwest and went to school at NYU. He lived in Washington, DC and Houston before settling in Austin. He blames his background in the theater for his writing style, which he calls “dialogue and stage directions.” Two of his books were named Lambda Literary Award finalists. He is a big baseball fan, a gay cinema buff, and has never met a boy band he didn’t like.
