Why you must read Michael Gesellchen’s The Resurrectionist
William Stark is not the hero type, at least not in his eyes. Awkward and anxious, mental illness and a confused faith keep him from loving the girl of his dreams, and himself. A lack of self-esteem takes him to the depths of hell (literally) to fight an intimate battle between fear and faith.
Will wants nothing more than to feel normal, but when you’re from a town nicknamed, The Devil’s Rendition of Sedona Arizona, it’s not meant to be. Famous for attracting fire and brimstone preachers, occult psychics, and the fringes of society, Millersville is hiding a history that’s anything but traditional.
With the guidance of a deeply spiritual school psychologist who may be keeping secrets of his own, Will learns to balance his mental health symptoms and work towards normalcy, which is about to be short lived.
A team of paranormal investigators have their eyes on the reluctant Will and his unique abilities. What isn’t clear is their deeper purpose for him. Aided with technology developed by the group, Gateway, a Resurrectionist crosses into a world of lost spirits and guides them to the light. William’s calling, his purpose, is laid before him. He must fight to conquer his demons or risk becoming one of them, falling into darkness for all eternity.
What genre is this?
Tell us about William Stark.
Will never sees the beauty that lies within his soul. Despite countless cues and hints it never dawns on him to let his loved ones in.
Will is a prodigal son, an antihero you’ll fall in love with and root for until the bitter end.
William Stark is a reflection of me on many levels. The scene in chapter three where Will calls attention to the painting on Dr. Z’s wall was from a time I was questioning my choices and unsure if I made the right ones. After seeing the painting, I knew I was on the right path.
I’ve struggled with anxiety and social phobia for as long as I can remember. My goal for The Resurrectionist was to create a character with similar struggles and one people can relate to.
