West York resident Zachary Zinn self-published his book, “A Song for Swans” in 2012. He discussed his book via our local author web form.
The book follows Landon Hughes, a teen who experienced the anguish of cancer at a young age, Zinn wrote. Now, Landon is a senior in high school and has built his life back together since his remission was announced. All the sudden, he feels a lump in his throat and it all slowly floods back in his mind. Landon is diagnosed with a rare cancer that leaves little hope for survival. Traveling through the lowest of lows, Landon has to answer the most important question: is there anything worth living for when it all leads to death?
“My high school English teacher taught me to write about things worth writing. Around that time, a good friend of mine, Bob had gotten pancreatic cancer. I saw how he lived his last days with more life than some people live in their normal days,” Zinn wrote.
The book is available for purchase on Amazon.
In his spare time, Zinn enjoys writing, drumming and driving.
