CHRIS TEBBETTS: ME, MYSELF & HIM


Best-selling author Chris Tebbetts chats with Big Blend Radio about his new memoir-fiction hybrid “Me, Myself, and Him” that’s loosely based on his experience as a teenager.

Following the book’s protagonist, Chris, through two parallel stories, the book brings to light how decisions have consequences and how that may affect a teen about to go to college.

The story begins with an accident in which the story’s gay, 18-year-old protagonist, Chris Schweitzer, passes out and breaks his nose huffing whippets behind the ice cream store where he works. From there, Me, Myself, and Him splits into two parallel (and fictional) narratives: one where Chris lies about what happened, and another where the truth comes out and Chris is sent off to live with his famous but difficult physicist father for the last summer before college. Within its dual narratives, the book touches on friendship, romance, family difficulties, and yes, a little theoretical physics.

Chris Tebbetts loves, and has always loved, storytelling in its many forms. His background includes a college major in film production; a decade as a mostly-starving NYC-based theater artist; and more recently, fifteen years of writing for kids and teens.

Tebbetts is the author and co-author of many books for young readers. Titles include the #1 New York Times bestselling Middle School series with James Patterson; the Stranded series with “Survivor” host Jeff Probst; the YA novel M or F?; and The Viking.  His work has received children’s choice awards in Oregon and Hawaii, as well a Sunshine State Young Readers Award nomination, and a nod on the New York Public Library’s annual list of Books For the Teen Age. He is a native of Yellow Springs, Ohio, a graduate of Northwestern University, and currently lives with his husband in the Burlington, Vermont area. More at www.ChrisTebbetts.com.
