Storytelling has always been a passion of Garrett Elinski's. For as long as he could remember, he was a creator of worlds, and no rock was left unturned when it came to details. He'd use simple markers and stick figures to establish characters, or use his army of toys to stitch together as compelling a story as a child could make. It wasn't until he was introduced to his 11th-grade English teacher that he discovered his fire for writing fiction. She was the push he needed to discover that words were his every weapon, and that they only ever stung rightly. As a debut novelist, Elinski hopes to inspire people to think more consciously about their lives and decisions, and to promote mindfulness. He is a staunch believer in people, and that nobody is beyond making a change for the better.
