“Death is Nothing, When Considered”

Introduction: A small message for you, the reader…

When I was a young boy, about 6 or 7, my dream was to be a scientist and an author. I believe that writers like to tell stories with characters that mirror what they wish they had become or who they would like to be; this is certainly true in my own writing. This book is a dedication to those dreams and that passion. I believe what makes a true scientist, is the continual pursuit of knowledge and rational thinking. It has nothing to do with an inflation of ego, but everything to do with evidence, humbleness, and hard work.

I wrote this book in the hope that I could create one solid story involving: science, horror, fantasy, romance, and supernaturalism, all coming back to a truth we all try to shy away from: the inevitability of death. I had my doubts in writing this, worrying who would like it and who would not, but at the end of the day, you have to love your own art and if you are proud of it, then that’s all that matters, right? Having said that, of course I hope you love it, as I have loved writing it!

I have so many people to thank for supporting me over the years as I wrote this and I love you all. As Kevin Smith said, “Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering. A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the cartoon you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life. If you discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever.”

I hope these words will resonate with you, as they have for me. I could ramble on forever, so I will stop. I hope you enjoy: “Death is Nothing, When Considered.”
