Just over a year ago I finished writing a novel called Falling about a 16-year-old boy whose happy and comfortable life slowly crumbles apart around him until it explodes in an outburst of anguish, violence and deep sadness. The boy runs away from home and ends up homeless in London.
Once I’d completed the book, I did little with it, and it sat on my laptop gathering dust. But now I’ve resurrected it and I’m using it to raise money for the homeless charity The Big Issue. If you’d like to find out more, visit this website that I’ve set up – it’s under my pen name of Eddie Allen.
