Neth Williams is a Nashville-based writer who is originally from the cornfields of rural Illinois. A wordsmith with the gift for rhyme, he moved to Nashville to be a songwriter. A chance encounter with a Nashville Native noir writer led to him meeting the inner circle of Nashville’s literary elite. With their encouragement, Neth suspended writing lyrics to pen humorous, true-life stories for events such as Life out Loud, Not Safe for Work, and That Time of the Month. Specializing in non-fiction, Neth can tell any story with a sense of comedy, sorrow, inspiration, or defeat, all depending on the intent. Neth has shared candid personal stories on stage, in podcasts, and in a contribution for the charitable anthology book “When the Shadow Sees the Sun – Creatives Surviving Depression”, as tribute to his writing mentor who lost his own battle with depression. When not glued to a keyboard, Neth enjoys spending time with friends of all walks of life, his kids, his pets, his husband, and occasionally, loved ones…in no particular order..
WHEN THE SHADOW SEES THE SUN is the realization of a concept of a brilliant creative mind that recognized certain things in himself, dark things. Things he thought he might not overcome. He conceived this idea, partly in jest, but more in earnest desire. A book focused on creative souls who experience depression and struggle with horrors that they exorcise by putting them to paper, but just can’t always let go of that way. He wanted there to be a book out there for creatives (and others who might benefit) by creatives to address the struggles so many endure and to offer ways to cope, to deal, and to move on. To overcome. Logan L. Masterson lost his battle with what plagued him on March 29, 2016. And this book, his idea, is now a reality, to help bring to light the issues creative souls do endure, many similar to anyone else, some unique to our own little family. All proceeds from this book will go to a variety of charities, local as well as state and national, to promote suicide intervention and prevention as well as to assist with working through and surviving depression, with a focus being on those who are artists, writers, performers, etc. affected by this.
