BOOK #1 – Marty McFly

MARTY MCFLY –
So the premise is that the main character Martin is a mid-twenties guy stuck up in his head. He’s got a horrible track record with women and is disappointed in his life path thus far. He plays Starcraft at work all day until he can go out drinking or to a show at the local indie club and relive his old band’s glory days. As a product of the’ Y Generation’ he has been told he can be and do anything, but he’s not up for the challenge, until Tabitha, a beautiful temp, begins working in his office. He’s fascinated with her, and she for some reason beyond Martin seems into him as well. This is not a romance in the traditional sense, more in that fleeting leading up to the special ‘firsts’ of relationships. Martin and Tabitha go on adventures to second-hand stores, race through the metro cowboy and Indian style and exchange sweet, intimate, moments reserved for lovers only. With Martin’s exgirlfriends’ popping up everywhere and Tabitha’s departure date looming for charity work overseas¸ their relationship is less than perfect.
