About the author

A. L. Williams

My name is Alec Lee Williams, a<em>&nbsp;</em>trans #ownvoices artist. My pronouns are He/him/his.<em>&nbsp;</em>&nbsp;I have loved creating things ever since I can remember. My art is the visual and written expression of what is in my heart and mind. Show the world what social expectation and stigma it has&nbsp;created in regards to mental health. Mental illness and discrimination are a part of our history and it’s time the world sees&nbsp;it.&nbsp; The beautiful and the dirty. <br> With my art, I want to show those who don't have mental illness what it's like. I want those that do have a mental illness, specifically queer POC, to relate and maybe even letting go of their trauma and triggers by seeing it displayed. I want them to know they are not alone.&nbsp;Now that I have decided to pursue writing my novels I hope will do the same.&nbsp;
