I Have Lived Today by Steven Moore
England. 1960s. A cold, harsh autumn. On an isolated island, an abusive man forces his wife to run for her life. Their son Tristan, young and afraid, also flees the island and sets out into the world to escape his demons and find his mother. Hitchhiking beneath the backdrop of a wild and loveless November, Tristan encounters every possible character, from the genuinely kind to the inherently wicked. Beaten, robbed and stripped of even hope, Tristan finds himself on the gritty streets of London’s East End, where everything he thought he knew about life starts to shatter and crumble around him. With all hope seemingly lost, a young boy even questions the futility of life itself. But when he learns that there are others who share his torment and understand his pain, can Tristan find the courage to make it through his darkest hours? Tristan's tale is a grim exploration into his own conscience. As he discovers the unique ability of humans to do such heinous things both to themselves and to one another, it's all he can do to keep control as his passage of internal discovery takes one dark turn after another and sends him to the edge.
About The Author...
Steven Moore grew up by the beach in Lowestoft, England. An avid sportsman, painter, photographer and reader, those loves are only trumped by his love of travel and writing. To date he has visited 49 countries and has lived and worked on five continents, and highlights have been trekking in the Andes and Himalayas, scuba diving all over south-east Asia, teaching English in Korea, and eating anything and everything, wherever he happens to be.
Steven lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with his wife, freelance journalist Leslie Patrick, and though they've at last have found a beautiful home-base, they'll soon be heading out on necessary visa runs which, considering their shared love of travel and adventure, tend to last months rather than days.
Steven writes about his travels and adventures on his dedicated blog, 'Twenty First Century Nomad,' but his first novel, 'I Have Lived Today,' is his first full length fiction book.
"Moore has a crisp, economical style, and sets the scene well. The story, while bleak, is shot through with moments of pathos...compelling from start to finish" - Mark Dawson, bestselling author of the John Milton, Beatrix Rose, Isabella Rose and Soho Noir series.
"One of those books I already know I'll return to. A story of genuine breadth and depth, hard without being bleak. Thoroughly recommended" - John Bowen, author of bestselling occult thriller, Where The Dead Walk
"A book of real substance, it takes you on a powerful journey" - John Hopton, author of coming of age novel 'Three Little Boys.'
Steven has also published a popular short story, 'The Death of Helena,' a release that will always be FREE, so if you'd like a free download, just email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org
