“Working with Stefan was fabulous from day one! He poured his heart and soul into this project -- he was 130% committed to helping me tell my story. My voice is the key to the whole book, and he captured it so perfectly my sister and my girlfriend both said it sounded exactly like me. Even so, I could never have written this on my own. Stefan had the skill and experience to construct the story, chapter by chapter, in a way that everybody who reads it says they can't put it down.
He was able to take my words and create these vivid, scenes that made all those people, all those memories, come to life. He even captured the spiritual mist that surrounded Father Paul [an angelic messenger in the story], because he had a deep emotional empathy for what I was saying. Nobody's ever captured that as good as he did. He was also easy to work with, and he never put any pressure on me if I was confused or couldn't quite remember something. He helped me remember. Now that the project is over and the book is published, I can hold it in my hand and say, This is me. This is my life. And that's an incredible feeling!
