When Holden Sheppard discovered that feelings – especially painful ones – weren’t something boys were meant to talk about, he began to write his down instead. Twenty years later, the boy from Geraldton is a multi-award winning author.

Holden has received extensive accolades for his hit book, Invisible Boys and its representation of young queer people growing up in Western Australia.

His second novel, The Brink, is set to be released in August and already generating a lot of buzz. Euphoria meets Lord of the Flies in this unmissable novel about the wild, dangerous freedom of young adulthood.

Get the first glimpse into the story, as Holden talks in conversation with award-winning journalist and ABCQueer’s Mon Schafter.

The Brink is a raw, powerful novel that pulls no punches in its authentic exploration of masculinity, sexuality, mental health, drug and alcohol use, relationships and sex

  • The Brink is a raw, powerful novel that pulls no punches in its authentic exploration of masculinity, sexuality, mental health, drug and alcohol use, relationships and sex

    Text Publishing

  • The Brink is an explosive story about friendship, love, grief, and trauma. Holden Sheppard brings his uniquely gritty voice to a novel that is part coming-of-age, part thriller, and part social commentary
