E.S. Wesley is an author and advocate for the safety and mental health of young people. A long-time mentor and counselor, Wesley has worked for years to protect, encourage, and empower young adults to navigate a life that rarely makes sense. He believes all people are just waiting for someone to relate to their stories, so he makes up stories in the hope that someone will read and find a home there.

His stories are often strange and twisty.

Wesley lives with his wife in Texas, where he’s always writing. Texas has a lot of things that he likes, but Shelly is the best of them. Second best is his son, who introduced him to his wife. Sometimes we do things out of order—that just makes life more interesting.

The Hotel Between by Sean Easley
"I was lucky enough to read a couple of versions of this story as it evolved and it is such a fantastically fun adventure! Grand Budapest Hotel for middle-grade with a big helping of heartfelt family mystery and very cool magic."
