Says Bram, "There's a famous saying from ancient times: 'Be kind to everyone you meet because each person is secretly fighting a great battle.' That's something we should all keep in mind, whether we're being bullied or find ourselves acting like a bully. It will get better so long as we treat ourselves with kindness and respect."

  1. Great message, from the heart. I always thought his novel "Hold Tight" would have made a great film.

  2. I've always loved his work, from "Surprising Myself" to "Hold Tight" to "Father of Frankenstein" (which was the basis for the movie "Gods and Monsters" with Ian McKellan and Brendan Fraser).

  3. Mr. Bram is a tremendous talent. "Surprising Myself" was a amazing read for me as I was pushing that closet door open many years ago. Thanks again Christopher.
