The letter below is part of an ongoing series featuring letters from authors to their teen selves. If you're a published author who'd like to participate in this series, we'd love to have you. Just click here and let us know you're interested. Today's guest is Len Joy, author of Dry Heat, which just came out today.
I’m writing this from the future and I’m you. That’s probably not as confusing for you with your supple teenage brain as it is for me. The good news is that I’m writing this from fifty years in the future and I’m still around. Or is it “We’re still around?” Aargh. Don’t get me started on pronouns.
Okay, I can’t tell you anything about your life because that would be a violation of one of those time-traveler rules. But I think a little sneak preview and a gentle nudge here and there will be okay.
Len as a teenager
