Alaska's Master of Imagination

Adam Freestone is an Alaskan author and writer of the Sentinel Flame series. He writes fantasy stories but also has a talent for the unexpected. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering he has been coming up with stories his whole life. But apart from his writing skills, he isn’t quite what most people would expect. He is a near quadriplegic man afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy, confined to a wheelchair and dependent on a ventilator, but despite everything he has going against him, he never lets it stand in his way. He is a go-getter, animal and nature lover, MDA participant, and smart minded writer. Everything that goes into his stories is carefully considered, nothing he writes goes down casually. His stories are never quite what they first appear to be.

As weird as it might sound, I originally got the idea for my story from my disability. I have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and I require a wheelchair. Due to my equipment, people treat me differently when I'm out and about. They rarely mistreat me, but it's not the same as everyone else. This is from me being in a relatively unique situation, and people don't know how to interact or react to me. And the same holds for Hyroc. He's not disabled, but he's still different than everyone else. I wondered how people might treat someone like him. And I wanted to do it for readers entertainingly and enjoyably.
