A personal introduction from Damien:

Hi! I’ve written two books. Both are reflections on my teaching career, staying creative, being a dad and finding success and survival as one who suffers from Bipolar disorder. There’s a lot of humor in my books. If you’re a similar soul, I know you’d like them. Thanks for reading.
