Spotlight On Indie Author Martin Humphries
indie author Martin Humphries

Martin Humphries spent decades as a commercial real estate agent in Vancouver, Canada, but always dreamed of being a writer. There was always a reason to procrastinate until the death of Helen Gurley Brown triggered an idea for an unconventional love story focused on the swinging sixties. The coming of age drama grew through six volumes, spanning almost two decades. Martin’s research of the controversial topics of that time – gay rights, church sexual abuse, paedophilia, and many more, drove the family saga breathlessly forward. Martin is now working on several other books that continue the story. He lives amongst numerous other writers and artists on Gabriola Island, British Columbia, with his partner of more than twenty years, Paul, and his dog, Alfie.

Can't Buy Me Love

It’s the sixties, and London might be swinging, but not for our girl, Edith. Raised in a miserable home full of anger and hate, life for poor Edith seems to hold little hope. But she finds plenty when she teams up with her older gay cousin, Ronnie, who makes her his mission with a plan to re-shape her into the fabulous young woman he knows she deserves to be. Once free of her father and her weak, defenseless mother, her transformation is swift and dramatic. Suddenly, life is an exciting adventure, full of twists and turns, as Edith’s coming of age becomes a roller-coaster ride of glorious highs and frightening lows, including a father who comes back to haunt her. But where will it take her, and how will it end? Who will win, and who will lose? This special ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ BONUS EDITION offers the first two of six volumes in the ‘The Cost of Loving’ Series. If you like stories of success over adversity, family dramas and sexual diversity, then you will love Martin Humphries’ bitter-sweet voyage of discovery through some of the most exciting years in living memory. Years chock full of changes of every kind, when being gay usually spelt trouble with a capital T.
