Meet Prizim author, Huston Piner.....

My Life as a Myth is a bittersweet page-turner filled with humorous misadventures, unexpected psychedelic explorations and moments of love, passion and tragedy. 1969 high school loser Nick Horton’s new friend Jesse Gaston promises to make him a superstar. But if would-be girlfriends, his dysfunctional family, and a suspicious principal weren’t enough to deal with, Nick falls in love with Bobby Warren and things really get complicated. Can Nick and Bobby find their way in a world where acid rock rules, status is everything and being gay is the last taboo?

Nominated for the 2014 Stonewall Book Award for Children's and Young Adult Literature.

Reviewers’ comments:

… a realistic depiction of the struggles an ordinary young gay person may experience. Some of it is sad, some of it is scary, and some of it is maddening, but it is also funny, insightful, and, ultimately, hopeful. The bittersweet ending is appropriate to the … time in which the book is set. This novel is well worth reading. – Orion

It made me laugh and cry, and I've got to warn you, there are some scenes that really tug on the heartstrings. ... Overall a wonderful YA read which I highly recommend. – Jeff Erno.

If you’re seeking a highly original young adult read that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure, I can certainly recommend this book. - Jamie Deacon

My Life as a Myth is one of the most realistic LGBTQ YA books that has crossed my desk … If you like a period piece, if you are interested in the 60's, if you like LGBTQ YA, if you like humour, a message, young love, and can handle a bittersweet piece of fiction that is firmly rooted in reality, then please do yourself a favour and read the beautifully written, wonderfully named My Life as a Myth. – Kazza K


I woke up sometime after dawn. I was on my back and Bobby lay on his side with his left leg draped over me and an arm wrapped snuggly around me. As I came to, I realized we were both uncovered, he was naked, and we both had hard-ons; his rested on my thigh. Completely embarrassed, I began a slow delicate process to untangle us without waking him.

After I freed myself, I hurried to the bathroom, quietly closed the door and raised the lid just in time to explode. I stood there shivering until I was completely drained and flushed the toilet. The bathroom had a small walk in shower with a sliding door. I got in before the water fully heated up, and let it flow over me to ensure I was fully awake.

I dried my hair with the damp towel. Bobby had rolled over and snored quietly, now clutching a pillow. I finished dressing and watched him sleep for a minute, taking in how perfect he is from head to toe. My God, he’s beautiful, I thought, and I felt myself stiffen. It took me a couple of minutes to tear myself away from just admiring him. There are some things you just know you’ll remember all your life and I knew right then that even when I’m a hundred, remembering him sleeping like that will bring out the same feelings in me.
