Ross McCoubrey has lived in Nova Scotia since birth. After completing college, he purchased a home on the Bay of Fundy Shore. One Boy’s Shadow is his first novel and a portion of his proceeds will be donated to charities supporting LGBTQ youth. For more information on the book or to contact the author, please visit or tweet @RossAMcCoubrey.

One Boy’s Shadow combines elements of mystery and the paranormal in a modern coming of age story. Designated a “Rising Star” and “Editor’s Choice” by publisher iUniverse, the novel follows fifteen year-old Caleb Mackenzie as he adjusts to life in a new town.

When Caleb hears stories about the disappearance of a boy who lived in his house sixty years ago, he dismisses them as nothing more than folklore until the first time he hears a voice in the woods calling his name. Soon Caleb becomes determined to uncover the truth about what happened to the missing boy and in the process he learns even more about himself and what is really important. Teens and adults alike will enjoy accompanying Caleb on his soul-searching journey of discovery.

One Boy’s Shadow is available for purchase in print and e-book editions from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Chapters/Indigo and can also be ordered directly from iUniverse. ISBN 9781475903560 (trade paperback edition)

Ross’ Cause:

The Youth Project
The reason I feel so strongly about this cause is that it is a wonderful resource/safe haven for LGBTQ youth and it’s located in Halifax in my home province of Nova Scotia.
