About the Author

James Acker grew up in New Jersey, and he's based his entire personality off that fact. He received his Bachelor's in Screenwriting & Playwriting from Drexel University and won the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship for his screenplay Sadboi. When he's not writing, James lives in Los Angeles with his wonderfully supportive partner and his two recurring stress dreams. He is the author of The Long Run.


"James Acker's The Long Run introduces us to two funny, unique, passionate narrators, and also to a boldly authentic new voice in queer fiction. Written with equal doses of heart and ferocity, this is a fabulous debut. Bash and Sandro will run away with your heart." --Abdi Nazemian, author of Stonewall Honor book Like a Love Story and The Chandler Legacies "Raw, real, electric, and unputdownable, The Long Run goes the distance! Acker boldly breaks all the rules with his poignant, passionate prose. I never wanted to leave Sandro and Bash, who show us that love--and sex--is not a sprint to the finish, but an investment in the long run." --Steven Salvatore, critically acclaimed author of And They Lived... "Sandro and Bash are not your typical YA queer couple, so buckle up! They curse, they're coarse, and they're in love--maybe. Don't ask them, it's complicated. James Acker is a splashy new voice with an unforgettable romcom about tough guys with soft hearts." --Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and The 99 Boyfriends of Micah Summers "The Long Run is a raw, emotional love story anchored in two journeys of self-discovery... A stunning novel." --Bookpage, starred review "Refreshingly credible images of the messy lives and desires of contemporary teens." --Publishers Weekly "A thoughtful coming-of-age story and tender romance with two memorable main characters that will wiggle their way into readers' hearts and stay long past the final page." --BCCB
