Justin Drazin did not originally plan to add the title childrens author to his résumé, but what started out as a short piece to show family and friends has evolved into a trilogy of whimsical tales. And along the way, the Fair Haven-raised environmental policy student turned one of his childhood fears into a captivating bedtime story for kids.
Drazin, 24, recalls being terrified of the dark when he was younger. I had a lot of sleepless nights, a lot of going back and forth to my parents room, he said, removing his brown thick-framed glasses during a recent interview. Its an age-long fear. Everyone goes through it at some point.
Written from the point of view of a little boy afraid of the dark, Albert and the Amazing Pillow Monsters is the first installment of the dreamland-centered series.
