About the Author

Faraway is an anonymous author of poetry based out of California. At twenty-six years old, penning his first book was something of necessity. Words were pouring out and being placed online for hundreds of thousands to read, and while seeing the highs and lows expressed in pixels was a step toward closure, holding those moments on paper gently was what he truly needed to move on from his past. Heartbreaks, let-downs, unwanted memories, thoughts about the world and fellow humans around him—it all coalesced into the carefully crafted book Sad Birds Still Sing.
