"I have wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until I began my self-education that I realized the kind of writer I wanted to be. Three years ago, I began a rigorous study of classic literature, including Hermann Hesse, Ernest Hemingway, and Jack Kerouac, as well as Dostoevsky, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Flaubert, Camus, Steinbeck, Joyce, among many others, not to mention countless poets. I have also studied the philosophers who inspired the themes and topics about which these authors wrote. It was the classic Hessean bildungsroman theme that inspired my coming of age novel, Restless Heart."
"Now, at the age of 24, I have written my first of what I hope to be many literary works. After carefully studying the elements that go into the creation of a truly great novel that will stand the test of time to be studied and pondered by countless literary critics and aesthetes, I am hopeful that I have written a novel that consists of those key elements, which make a great literary work."
