Author name: David Olimpio
Book: This is Not a Confession, Awst Press, 2016
Synopsis: Through these powerful and insightful essays, David Olimpio explores the residual effects of sexual abuse, divorce, and grief. With surprising candor and a disarming sense of humor, Olimpio takes on the outwardly-wholesome landscape of his childhood spent in a suburban Houston neighborhood and the complex sexual relationships in his adult life. Both poignant and poetic, This is Not a Confession leaves us with a sense that our identities have the power to transcend our circumstances.
Bio: David Olimpio grew up in Texas, but currently lives and writes in Northern New Jersey. He believes that we create ourselves through the stories we tell, and that is what he aims to do every day. Usually, you can find him driving his truck around the Garden State with his dog. He has been published in The Nervous Breakdown, Awst Press, The Austin Review, Rappahannock Review, Crate, and others.
Favorite thing about being a writer: I like playing with words.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: I feel like my biggest challenge as an indie author is finding an audience. However, I think this is a challenge for all authors these days, even ones published at big presses.
Favorite book: London Fields, by Martin Amis
