My name is Damian Salo and I was born and raised outside Cleveland, Ohio. My father taught me a good work ethic while my mother taught me good morals. After graduating from Bedford High School, I obtained my BA in both Accounting and Finance at Kent State University, and due to the struggling economy, my best friend and I took our chances and settled in Brooklyn, NY. It’s true what they say. NYC is tough. But as an artist it forces you to mature, adapt, and to be creative. With so many people out here striving to do the exact same thing that you want to do, the question is: What will make you stand apart from the rest? Seven years later and after countless re-writes, I believe I have finally accomplished that. I crafted an epic fantasy that combines autobiographical stories of friendship, love, and fate with a touch of world politics, religion, and mysticism. More importantly, I wrote a novel that is true to myself.
