About the Author:

Leelan Fletcher always had a passion to explore. Since birth, he was curious about his surroundings and as a toddler was hard to keep up with. Through his teenage years, he continued to explore and racked up hundreds of miles each summer on his bicycle only to come home and tell his family what he had seen and experienced. As in adult, he enlisted in the U.S. Army to serve his country and continued to explore the unknown. As he traveled, he kept a journal and mental account of his explorations and experiences. In 2001, he returned to the U.S. after a 15 year hiatus. He later married and started a family, but continued to piece together the pages of his traumatic life while living abroad, until finally, he had a story to tell the world.
