Anthony McDonald is the author of 'Adam', an acknowledged coming-of-age classic, and 'Blue Sky Adam', which takes that story six years forward in time. 'Getting Orlando' combines thriller with love story in a novel of adventure and travel. 'Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet' opens a Spanish trilogy: six young people who meet in Seville in 1977 grow to maturity in 'Along The Stars' and 'Woodcock Flight'.
New works have recently been added to the list: 'Ralph, Diary of a Gay Teen' and 'The Dog in the Chapel', two stories with boarding-school settings; then there is 'Psychological Thriller: Ivor's Ghosts', as well as short story collection 'Matches in the Dark', and ten novels in the series, Gay Romance.
McDonald has worked in the theatre in every capacity except that of electrician, and taught English in Paris and provincial France. He now lives in rural East Sussex, among friends.
