Shadowboxer by Paula Sophia

This isn’t a review as such. The author kindly sent me her book after I indicated an interest in her request for a review but I just haven’t been able to make myself read it because of my personal circumstances and mood. The book is not a romance, and may be difficult for some readers as it deals with heavy themes of homophobia and transphobia, but as books about trans* people are rare, and this one is well written, I felt I should at least draw it to your attention.

It’s published by Etopia Press and available in digital and paper formats.

About the author:

Paula Sophia is a twenty-year veteran with the Oklahoma City Police Department, a graduate from the MFA in Creative Writing program at the University of Central Oklahoma, and an avid motorcycle rider trying to find Zen on the back roads of Oklahoma.

Summary:

Willie Guyles has a secret he’s been fighting to keep, something he thought he’d boxed up a long time ago. When he meets a drag prostitute while patrolling the streets of Oklahoma City, the old feelings return, and he can’t force them back into the box.

A story about identity crisis, the horrible consequences of bullying, and the detrimental effects of self-loathing, Shadowboxer descends into a world altogether familiar yet strangely askew.
