podcast logo

Since the age of 11, S. C. Hall has been in the world of writing. Throughout the years his mediums of word form have steadily evolved. From poetry to articles, then to short stories and critic work. When asked why he writes He simply replies, “To stay sane,” due to his struggles with bipolar/depression. He uses writing as an outlet to help process his depression. This is evident in his first project titled “You Are Not Alone,” which will be a collection of short stories all focused on the reality of what it is to live with depression.
When not writing he is killing Zombies and other forms of gaming enemies. He also enjoys the cinema and building or refurbishing furniture.
