About the Author
Most of his work centers on the gay "emerging adult" as he struggles with finding purpose, happiness, and love in a world not quite built for him. He’s also inspired by the fantastic (or what he hopes to be fantastic). Bringing the extraordinary into a rather ordinary world is a theme that he loves to revisit. Besides fiction, he dabbles in essays, screenwriting, and illustration.
He shares an apartment in Manhattan with his best friends and a strange little dog. Read all about it at www.generalfaggotry.com. In Stone is his first novel.

King employs highly dramatic language to tell this dense contemporary fairy tale of self discovery, affection and magic. The character Jeremy speaks and thinks in hyperbole. He's a very dramatic young kid which at times can be a touch frustrating, but also provides a level of humor to this macabre tale. The story, which takes place in 2009 and also a few hundred years earlier, is decorated with fantastical events and characters including witches, vampires, stone creatures, ghosts, speaking trees and evil royalty. But underneath the enchanted facade King probes at some fascinating questions about love and form. How does the body of the person you love affect the way you love them? Or whether in fact you can love them at all. In Stone is a multi-faceted tale with plenty of ideas to dwell on long after reading has finished.
