A self-described "warrior poet," Dylan Joseph is a New York-based writer who documents "an evolved notion of what it is to be a man and a new world of masculinity." His latest book Sam's Story does exactly that and provides an intimate look into what it is to be young, free, and gay. The novel has an almost heartbreaking power. As we peer into the characters' intimate lives, we get a visceral glimpse into the underlying struggles of being LGBT and in love. His hope is that it inspires people to "live their lives to the fullest and fulfill all their dreams."
