I will never leave you.
Every day that Gabriel spends on earth, the more annoyed they become-- humans are ridiculous, especially Hayley. She has made her feelings clear, but with each passing day their feelings go beyond logical, putting their identity into question

As they struggle to work together with a single clue, their attraction grows far beyond the vanilla. Can they reconcile past mistakes or are the Scars too deep?

About the Author

My name is Alec Lee Williams, a trans #ownvoices artist. My pronouns are He/him/his.  I have loved creating things ever since I can remember. My art is the visual and written expression of what is in my heart and mind. Show the world what social expectation and stigma it has created in regards to mental health. Mental illness and discrimination are a part of our history and it’s time the world sees it.  The beautiful and the dirty.

With my art, I want to show those who don't have mental illness what it's like. I want those that do have a mental illness, specifically queer POC, to relate and maybe even letting go of their trauma and triggers by seeing it displayed. I want them to know they are not alone. Now that I have decided to pursue writing my novels I hope will do the same.
