It seems author Wilsdaryon Prescher is everywhere these days. Fresh off his guest spot on KDD Media’s Knockin’ Doorz Down podcast this month, he and his new book titled “This Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma, where Wil shares all about his life story with the host, Jason LaChance.
You can watch/listen to Wil’s show here on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NlAIKOsGsAc and learn all about what he is doing to “give back” to high-risk teens who may feel like they have no hope.

“Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite
This Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma is a work of non-fiction in the memoir subgenre. It is aimed at mature readers and was penned by author Wilsdaryon Prescher. The book follows the author’s recovery from the abuse he endured in his youth, a journey made possible by the power of music. Throughout the rocky road of escaping the abuse, developing coping mechanisms that hindered more than they helped, and encountering the biases that people hold against abuse survivors, the power of music provides a tool for the author to rediscover their authentic self and move forward into adulthood.
I’m always in awe of any author penning a memoir, especially one willing to show sincere emotional vulnerability to their readers. Still, sometimes an author leaves nothing off the table when describing the upsetting and painful parts of their lives. Such an author is Wilsdaryon Prescher, whose willingness to frankly portray some of the most challenging situations a young person can live through is matched deftly by his skillful prose in doing justice to the depiction of those moments.
This book is an emotional journey that readers will be moved by as they experience the hardships of the author’s younger years and the rocky road to happiness that came with adulthood.
Overall, This Is Me Trying is an honest depiction of the never-ending struggle toward recovery and a book that frankly depicts mental health issues and the journey to better mental and emotional wellbeing, wherever your starting point in life may be.”

This Is Me Trying: Navigating Through A Lifetime of Trauma
by Wilsdaryon Prescher (Goodreads Author)
Catherine Townsend-Lyon‘s review
An exceptionally well-written Memoir.
“This Is Me Trying” is not only a well-written book but a poignant read as well. Deep insights into what can happen when a little boy is born into chaos, poverty, trauma, and tragic abuse of several kinds. The author’s subtitle doesn’t even share the tip of the iceberg of what you will read about his early life.
However, I can guarantee by the last page; that you will cheer this young man for overcoming the many obstacles he has had to process and the life he has built for himself while still healing. But, heartbreaking at times, this book is unique, and the courage and bravery it took to share all that he has been through is commendable. Not surprising he has no ties with his biological parents or siblings.
As you read, that would only bring him more chaos with more discrimination. So does that come from possible envy or jealousy from his biological family, and due to the fact the author has been so successful in reshaping a more healthy, emotional, and stable life today? One part I thought was humorous was when he shared about his teens and throwing a desk or chair out a classroom window became his “signature move.”
Sadly, he did because of not learning yet to process the emotions and trauma of now being bounced around in the foster care system after being taken from his biological family’s home, finally. The last 40% of the book shares how and continues his healing process even today. All in all, this is a vital memoir everyone should read.
Does Wilsdaryon get the happy ending he longs for? Does he find a family he has always wanted?
I highly suggest your his book to find out. ~Cat of Lyon Literary Services & Book Media
