Collin Berry was not always a writer, and as a kid you couldn't even pay him to read a book. Why read a boring book inside when you could be doing something fun outside like playing hockey or digging a hole (which he really did with his friends behind his house). That was his motto, but as he got older he realized that he had just been reading the wrong books. If there were books out there that could get an anti-reader like Collin interested in books, then there are books out there for everyone. This is why he began writing, to create stories and adventures to reach those kids who haven't yet experienced the joys of reading.
