Hi. I am Gabriel Strump. I'm a business owner, philosopher, musician, and the author of Vreeland. I live in the Midwest. I am an amateur gardener. I love to cook. I love to read. I love to write. I love to make music. I play violin, piano, organ, and keyboards well. I play other instruments too, but not so well. I also sing. I have spent years reading and studying books about philosophy, religion, spirituality, psychology, success, history, esotericism, faeries and other elementals, angels, music, and much more. It is impossible for me to write without including this knowledge somehow, somewhere. The fairy tale, Vreeland, has many secrets of the ages hidden throughout. It does not restrict itself to one philosophic viewpoint, but rather encompasses many, sometimes in tongue-in-cheek fashion, yet with true parallels to the original moral lessons of each viewpoint. There are, however, in my opinion, certain TRUTHS, which exist in most all philosophies or religions. You will find many of these in this simple story, if you look for them. But, even if you don't, you may still be influenced by them. The story is cute, and appropriate for all ages. It includes a love story, good versus evil, traditional family values, and an emphasis on creativity. The faeries in this story, called Vrees, do not have dark features like many of those recently trending. Instead, they are meant to represent one's highest, most ideal thoughts. The enemy, then, are evil thoughts. There is a certain charm in the writing, which I believe will warm your heart.

I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.Very cute! This is the story of 17yo Anton, a teen who just doesn't quite fit in. Preferring books and music over sport, and keeping his hair longish to cover his elf like ears, Anton was always the target for bullies.After one such...
