Welcome. My name is Chloe, I've been writing and drawing since I was a teenager and wanted to be like my two brothers.
I started writing fan fiction and drawing fan art more recently, and pieces have fallen into place for the piece of work I've always wanted to create; a graphic representation of my love story.
My husband is quadriplegic, and I'm always frustrated at the lack of content, of any kind, about disabled people in healthy, happy relationships.
Philip is an outwardly cheerful, inwardly insecure, teenager. He plays rugby, studies hard, and volunteers at the local hospital, all of which he does for the sake of applying to university.
While volunteering, he finds out someone he played a match against in the past is in the spinal unit after an accident. He goes to visit, and their friendship begins, before developing into one of mutual respect and admiration.
Based mainly on me meeting my husband, I decided to make the two teenagers involved boys to give some distance from our own story - however many details are the same, and a lot of research has gone into background details.
It's not always an easy-going story, but it has a happy ending, and his injury is permanent, I feel these things are important to know in advance. It's also rated as 'Teen and up' due to language used and implied sexual relationships. Nothing is NSFW however, it's not that kind of 'graphic' novel.
Thank you so much for reading and supporting me! I can't wait for you to take this journey with me.
