About

Paul Maurer is one of ten Maurer children born and raised in Wisconsin. Writing has become a late passion in life and accents Paul’s full-time profession as a Doctor of Chiropractic. TOUCHED is published by New Libri Press and was released in late December 2012.

TOUCHED is a young adult novel that chronicles the travels of Jimmy, a high school sophomore, as he careens a rocky road that intersects squarely with the universal issues of teenage angst, confusion and self-awareness.  Jimmy meets a female newcomer, Renee, whose personal battle with abandonment and mental illness are coupled with her power of clairvoyance at a simple touch.  Renee’s gift brings an initial excitement to Jimmy’s life that leads them to the stratosphere of high school popularity, but at its peak it brings them into violent conflict with the high school upper crust not so willing to secede their domination of the school’s hierarchy. TOUCHED blends multiple hot-button topics including cyber-bullying, teenage lust and youthful confusion and ultimately confronts those hard-edged topics head-on without flinching. TOUCHED promises to be memorable long after the turn of the last page.

Enjoy TOUCHED!
