Gregory Sacchet

Biography

Diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome in 1973 and Multiple sclerosis in 1984, I grew up terribly insecure and found comfort in solitude to hide from my problems. Eventually, cocaine became my best friend and companion for 13 years, causing my wife to leave. I began writing short stories in 1997 at the end of my marriage.
