About Leif Gregersen

I have been driven to become the best possible writer I could be from a young age. At six I got a toy typewriter and I would spend my allowance on things like a thesaurus or blank paper to draw and make stories on. Every day after school in elementary I remember walking a mile to visit the library and take out books on mouse detectives or invisible ten year-olds. I remember a book I read in grade five about a young girl whose mother refused to leave their high-rise apartment. I have had some success with poetry and magazine articles, but what I really want to do is write books, and I have completed two. One is already available in many places and the other needs some fine-tuning. The second book I wrote is a novel about life in British Columbia in a small town not unlike the one I grew up in, though I grew up in Alberta. At the moment I make my living setting up stages for rock concerts and I get a small disability pension which I hope to one day cancel and live only by my own means. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder/manic depression at the age of 18 and had a very hard time until I came to accept that diagnosis as fact. For any more I guess you have to buy the book!

Provincial Mental Hospital Video
This is a video I made of the hospital I spent most of my time in while being treated for my mental illnesses. I am so glad to have not had to go there for 16 years now.
