Tragic, Mysterious Death Haunts Two Families in New Fiction, Everyone Has Their Little Secrets

What the tragic accidental shooting of Josh Von Lynskey really an accident? Two families ponder the disturbing possibilities in this taught fiction.

Denver, CO, and Metairie, LA – When a teen dies in a tragic accidental shooting, lives are shattered. But did the accident really play out as first thought? A family copes with the end of a young life and the disturbing questions around the event in author Michael Louthan’s riveting new fiction, Everyone Has Their Little Secrets. The newly released book is published by Outskirts Press.

Zoe Von Lynskey is a typical 13-year-old girl with an idyllic life and a bright future ahead of her – that is, until her 16-year-old brother is accidently shot by his friend Kirk Anderson.

But then new questions arise: Was Josh’s death truly an accident? Zoe suspects not. Kirk’s parents and Zoe’s parents are friends, and the two dads work for the same company, but Kirk has always been a bully to Zoe. With her big brother no longer there to protect her, she is now alone and vulnerable. Now she must contemplate what really happened the day her brother was killed. What does the truth mean for her?

Michael Louthan is an exceptionally strong storyteller and a savvy, imaginative and evocative writer. His book Everyone Has Their Little Secrets is, in its simplest form, a sharply observant and moving portrait of a teenager grappling with very adult problems – a stunning coming-of-age novel that pulls no punches. Louthan grabbed his plot ideas from current headlines. Look for more thought-provoking and entertaining stories in the near future.
