I hold an immense passion for the art of storytelling, mostly through the medium of film and, of course, novels. What I believe to be the most important aspect is not the story itself but the people that occupy them. The characters create the connection that draws a reader in and establishes investment. It is, after all, that human connection that has led to the world’s greatest accomplishments.
I was born in the small town of Granite Falls, Minnesota, and my life was relatively uninteresting. I never participated in any major contribution to the lives of those around me. I was recently diagnosed with clinical depression, which turned my life upside down. One would think such an event might be the worst experience of my life, and it was. However, it was also the most important moment of my life. Without it, I would not have met the people who inspired me to finish this story and pursue my dreams of authorship.
I pour my heart and soul into these stories, and if my works can inspire others, not only those suffering with similar illnesses, but those dealing with any hardship, then I believe I have fulfilled my purpose as a storyteller. Hopefully, this story can touch your life as it has mine.
