Book Recommendation: The Uncovered Darkness
As a service member I understand what it means to take care of your mental health. It was journaling that turned me into the writer I have become today. Mental health is an underlying condition of some of society’s issues today and I wanted to encourage everyone to seek the help they need. I decided to do this by writing cautionary tales on different mental health struggles that men, women and families fight through daily. The Uncovered Darkness Series is a three book series that covers the pitfalls of untreated mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, ptsd, and abuse all told through fictional horror tales that revolves around the beast that wander in the darkness being unleashed on the world. My debut novel, Descent of a Broken Man and its follow-up Ascent of a Vengeful Woman are the first two of the series. The third will be coming soon!
