DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
A day marked in their calendar… The day their dad would come home. Except, he never did.
Brian and his younger sister Alexis, desperate to make their family whole again, decide to take on the unknown searching for their father. With no end destination in sight, they set off on a dangerous journey to find him.
Their mission takes them across the country, meeting interesting people along the way. They battle their way through trauma and fight through tough times, all the while holding onto hope that he is out there… somewhere. Yet, the journey is just as important as the end goal and soon they realize they have learned invaluable lessons on their quest.
The situations they witness and people they encounter change their lives forever, but will they ever see their father's face again?
Anthony Williams Jr. is an advocate for mental health along with being an established author for younger readers. Self-admitted as a troubled teen, he now dedicates all his time to helping the younger generation as a mentor, trying to stop them from making the same mistakes he did. As a military officer, Williams learned the importance of mental health and building foundations of trust. His passion is exposing young adults to different concepts and providing them with the tools to handle situations thrown at them. His writing tends to encourage readers that struggling is universal and they are not alone in life.
From a background in the U.S military to becoming a co-founder of a mental health therapy practice, his years in the service provided great inspiration for his writing.
“What I’ve learned is that the common denominator amongst all people regardless of your culture, ethnicity, or background all people can relate to some to form of struggle. Rather its mental, physical, emotional, or financial, regardless - we all experience struggle at some point in our life.”
Williams resides in Washington D.C with his wife, who is also a talented therapist, and loving children. Currently studying for a Masters degree in Policy Management at Georgetown University, he aims to put his 10 years of public service to use to help mentor and guide the youth. Using his politics and writing, he hopes to make the world an easier place for the next generation. You can find him online at: www.anthonywilliamsjr.com.
