Byline Legacies is a nostalgic collage of inspiration, candor, and comfort—snapshots of the moments we have experienced (or will experience) during our lives as creatives. Woven through fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, you’ll discover love letters to our greatest influencers, memoirs of our humble beginnings, anthems for our greatest triumphs, symphonies that praise our journeys, and heart-wrenching confessions of the times when we doubted ourselves and questioned what kind of legacy we were creating. Embrace your curiosity, awaken your inner creative, and remember the importance of your voice, your ideas, and why you fell in love with writing in the first place. This book is for all of us who have ever chased a dream that didn’t make sense to anyone else: find yourself within the prose and know that you are never truly alone.

Typing on a Computer

...very entertaining, enlightening and at times comforting to know that you are not the only one who sometimes gets frustrated while trying to write.

I absolutely loved it.

Writing on a Notebook

DEB RAMOS

These words affect you, they draw you in and leave you with a feeling of inspiration and hope. It makes you think and feel as though you can accomplish anything you want even if you are discouraged at times if you just don’t give up.

Byline Legacies feels like a well-crafted album. The albums where you don’t skip songs. The albums that you select because you need to hear it in that moment because the lyrics and drums say it better than you can.
