How does one find the path from barely surviving to thriving?
Make yourself a cup of tea and gently enter a world where Tegan, Jonathan, and Lawrence navigate the ups and downs of their mental health. The paths of childhood friends, work colleagues, and exercise buddies intertwine their stories.

Their stories will look to comfort. To help just one feel a little less alone in the world, hearing someone else's story and sharing the thoughts and emotions. Injury strips Tegan of the life that she knows. Physical pain gnaws on her psychological wellbeing, introducing her to loneliness and isolation.

Their stories will look to provide hope. To help just one see that there is a possibility of finding a path forward, as the world feels unfamiliar and uncomfortable. The urges of gambling get the better of Jonathan, as he silently suffers paying a price much greater than the money lost.

Their stories will look to heal. To help just one be able to begin making sense of the world and become open to telling their story. The volatility and pace of professional life sucks away time and space from Lawrence. Overwhelmed and shattered, he is lost in a world where his qualities are a blessing and a curse.

Each find themselves barely surviving, though where they go from there will inspire an inner strength within us all.

Thusitha L. Perera's brain is wired a little different than most. Writing with his left hand and throwing with his right set a tone from an early age that he would do things uniquely his way. The combination of logic and analytics with creativity and imagination generates a distinct thought process with endless possibilities. After getting COVID-19, Thusitha found himself on the couch, unable to do the basics in life. He turned to the power of storytelling, writing to keep his mind busy whilst his body recovered. Along the way he rediscovered the joy words brought him as a kid, and as an adult he uses writing to help make sense of his emotions and the world he has come to know. Born and raised in Sydney, Australia to Sri Lankan parents, he forged a career mixing business and technology before adding author to his list of job titles. His debut novel, To Help Just One, takes inspiration from his interest in music, nature, psychology, watching and playing sports, gardening, and creatively expressing himself. Keep a look out for what else is to come
