The unique selling point of my books and stories is the morale and the message. I want to spread a message of love and hope. Regardless, of body shape, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. I have filtered, all my life experiences, true life experiences, for everyone to read, and I want to share them with the world. For so many years I have struggled with anxiety and depression, because of my sexual orientation and how people made me feel. My mission in life is to make sure that, all kids and grown-ups are out there in the world, and provide a beacon of hope, a beacon of light in those darkest of days. We are all beautiful, smart, and powerful, regardless of what society forces us to believe.


My name is Jonathan A. Cerruto. I was born in Canada and moved to Italy when I was a toddler. I moved to Milan at the age of 18, where I graduated in Fashion and Design. I have always loved to write, since childhood and, after many years, of trying to figure out who I really was, I finally found my real calling. I discovered, what sets my soul on fire, and that is writing books and lyrics. I decided to move to the UK, with just a luggage and many ideas. Once I moved to the UK, I studied Creative Writing, in London, and I have also attended The Berklee Boston Music Academy, where I have polished my lyricist skills. I now also write and co-write lyrics, for artists and music producers in Italy, and all over the world.
