About the Author
Born in the suburbs of Chicago, Troye Evers began experiencing tics around the age of ten. His Tourette syndrome was not diagnosed until he was eighteen. He suffered through an adolescence made up of daily teasing, bullying, and inappropriate educational placements in school. After years of attempting to hide his condition and suppress his tics, he became open about his diagnosis in his thirties. He penned a screenplay about his experiences that went on to win third place in the All Access Screen Writing competition. Two years later, he found himself voted onto the board of the Tourette Syndrome Association of New York City.
