I’m Cole Foster and I’m an aspiring author not yet published but hopefully soon. I’m twenty-nine years old with a bachelors degree in Psychology, no kids or family yet so more free time to put my ideas down on paper. I write to make a difference. If I can just touch one person with something I’ve written then I’ve made it. I aspire to be different, stand out, be bold and touch on topics that are darker with a different perspective. I dare to be different and want my readers to feel something by my characters.
