Our story began in 2018 when author Harold Phifer was compelled to tell his heartening story through his first publication, Sleepwalking Out of Afghanistan, Walking It All Back. Harold’s passion for writing prompted a desire to engage and inspire others through books and stories (“Read more, Relate more”). Coming from a difficult past filled with family tension, childhood bullying, mental illness, and feeling like an outsider, Harold found escape and solace in writing, learning, reading, and growing in self-reflection. He found comfort in books.
