About The Author
Wilsdaryon 'Wil' Prescher, a new emerging author of his first book titled "This Is Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma," is available on Amazon in both paperback and e-book versions. His book is featured on fine literary book sites.
Born in Temple, Texas, and at seven years old, he'd been placed into the foster care system due to trauma and abuse; sadly, he spent the next few years bouncing from foster home to foster home. At the age of twelve, Wil went to a foster home in Walnut Springs, Texas, with loving people who would eventually become his adoptive family. As Wil grew older, he developed a yearning to help individuals who have been in similar situations. He understood how navigating the foster system could be very challenging and that many were not as fortunate as he had been.
Wilsdaryon has spent the last four years studying mental health and substance abuse issues while working with at-risk youth in multiple organizations. During this time, he realized the effects of music therapy on a person's soul and emotional well-being; he is continuing his education to fulfill his dream of becoming a therapist. He hopes to share his experiences with others to show that something good can come out of an unfortunate situation out of his control.
When he is not working or studying, Wil enjoys spending time with his family, who have adopted him. He also enjoys hiking and the outdoors. You can always find him jamming to the music of "Pink" with his two cats, and he still resides in Houston, Texas.
