LAS VEGAS, NV, March 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- "It's no surprise that That You Are Here is a love story," author Meredith Allard says. "All of my novels are love stories in one way or another. The surprise might be that That You Are Here is a completely present-day story when I'm most known for historical fiction. Or, the surprise might be that the romantic leads are both men." When asked why she chose to write a love story about two men, Allard answered, "It's topical since same-sex marriage is in the news these days, but it's more than that. You can focus on the fact that the story is about two men, or you can focus on the larger, human issues. The two romantic leads, Andrew Whittaker and Mark Bryce, have quite a journey to travel together, and I hope they are a couple readers cheer for. No matter who you are, you have to learn how to be comfortable in your own skin. That's the challenge that faces Andrew Whittaker. He needs to find peace within himself."
Allard says That You Are Here is her way of adding her voice alongside others who think that people who are in love should be able to get married. "That You Are Here is a love story that happens to be about two men," Allard says. "It's really that simple."
About That You Are Here

He hides the love of his life, Mark Bryce, from his family and everyone else where he lives in Portland, Oregon. Soon the weight of the secret becomes too much for Andrew.
