Goodreads: Ernest Langston

“My work comes from how I perceive the world around me. I write from a point of empathy, free from judgement, to greater understand my finite existence and help others navigate through theirs. My stories are testimonials of my emotional experiences and discoveries intertwined with ever-present mysteries.” — Ernest Langston
