good ya books - Patrick Maccabee
Author: E. Tinay

The Wordicle’s Author’s Leak presents

E. Tinay and her book “Patrick Maccabee.”

There are many good YA books out there, and undoubtedly, this is one of them.

From the author, E. Tinay:

“Patrick is an idealistic college student; he sees the world in black and white. He’s studying to be a lawyer and wants to make sure criminals pay for their crimes. He takes a job from one of his professors in order to help pay for school. Patrick learns nothing is as simple as it seems when he witnesses a student murdered by his professor. His once black and white world starts looking gray.

Patrick’s story is near and dear to me. It’s my first published story, but also represents a big part of me. Patrick’s naïve view on the world reflected how I viewed the world when I wrote it. I think that’s why it has taken me so long to publish his story; I started this story nine years ago! Patrick Maccabee was complete in 2016 and published in 2020. It has been a roller coaster of emotions! I feel like I have made every mistake along the way, each one debilitating in its own way.

If I would have stopped writing after my mistakes, I wouldn’t have my next short story Today’s the Day, or my work in progress Under the Cover of Nightshades. Every step of the way is a chance to grow and learn new things! The important lesson I have learned is to keep trying and don’t give up—especially when you really want to!

I hope anyone who reads my stories can relate to the characters and put themselves into them. I hope my books make an impact on someone’s life like so many have done for me!”
