TNA: Hi, Zee, welcome to The Novel Approach, we’re so glad to have you here today. Why don’t we start off the Q&A by having you tell us a little bit about yourself?

The Blurb: The toughest ride of his life is all in his head.

Bull rider Scott Gillard has a reputation for quick fists and harsh words. What no one knows is where that anger comes from. After a shocking incident sends him into a tailspin, he knows he needs help: he’s been fighting a battle he could never win. Now he’s trying to navigate a new life and embrace his true self, but some days are easier than others.
