My book written in 2008 is a collection of short stories, inspired by true events in my childhood and my battle with mental illness.

One story in particular covers the true story of my fathers experiences with being sectioned and his constant battle with Schizo effective disorder.
Other stories such as the master of the cube which is my favorite, it is kind of based on myself and my relationship with my father as a young boy.

Dealing with the hurtful bullying I experienced as a child was incredibly painful so writing this book of short stories helped me greatly.
