“Usagi” is the first book in a series about a youth battling his schizophrenia and its complications. His main conflicts in this book deals with his rocky relationship with God, a hallucination
referred to as Oni, and the return of a longtime crush. I used experiences from my own bouts with schizophrenia to craft this turbulent fictional tale.



"Usagi" is now available to read on Tapas! =D I'm currently working to get this story in print and with illustrations thanks to my good pal Stevie Mendoza. Eh it's a joint effort but the main goal
is to spread mental health awareness and especially for schizophrenia because many people think it's all pills and nut houses. Well being a paranoid schizophrenic I can say with 100% accuracy that
it's possible to live a fulfilling and normal life with schizophrenia. Eh it just requires patience and love and above all else faith.



I wrote this story as a way to do my part in the community to help people who go through and especially the youth, what I'm going through and what I have went through. There is a light at the
tunnel! Though it may be fleeting just keep running and don't look back. Keep your head up and through God, Love, Family, and proper treatment everything will get better. :)
