Hi there! My name is Kevin. I am the guidance counselor at Riverside High. I like to provide examples from my life as a way to help anyone who comes through my doors deal with their stress.
My weekend hobby is running. In fact, I run lots. I figured we could read one of my chapters from Someone’s Story together and I will give you some insights.
I was taking part in the Bigfoot 200. It’s an extreme weather ultramarathon through the mountains. I was a good way in and exhausted. The weather was horrible.
My supplies were running down. My water bottle was empty. I was lost.
I sat down and thought about pulling out my GPS to signal for help. When I sat down my tattoo slipped out.
This tattoo is a reminder of every failure I ever had. The people, projects, and jobs I left behind. Ever since I got that tattoo, I said I would never quit again.
And so I picked myself back up…and I started running…one foot after the other…just another day at the office.
Littered with music, mental health, friendship, loss, meditation, advice, pop culture, and even inspiring an EP, there is so much nostalgia, inspiration, and depth here it is hard to absorb it all. Cozy up somewhere warm and enjoy!
“B. A. Bellec has crafted a masterpiece of emotive and well-rounded young adult ﬁction.”
K.C. Finn – Author
“The variety of personages, situations, and mental illnesses represented allows all readers to relate to this book and take something away from reading! This novel is on our list of all-time favourites!”
International Girls and Books
“Someone’s Story is a beautiful novel, written in great prose, very descriptive, and filled with insights about life. The author does an incredible job with themes of family, friendship, bullying, and personal development. It felt like I was reading a portion of my emotions and myself in Someone’s Story.”

A self-starter always interested in research, he taught himself many of the aspects of storytelling through reading books, screenplays and material online. Whenever he found an inspirational piece of art, he quickly went to the source to find the story behind the artist who created the work. It took many years after attending film school for him to finally combine his creative skills with his life experience and tell that story he had been holding back. Some of his favorite creative people: Lukas Rossi, Justin Furstenfeld, Peter Jackson, Stephen Chbosky, John Green, J.K. Rowling.
Currently he is pounding away on the keyboard writing his second novel, Pulse. This project is a change of pace and more details will come in a few months!
B.A. is also an avid jogger and walker, frequently using them as a way to work on those tough spots in life and his manuscripts. If you found it this far into his material, reach out to him on Twitter and make sure to like and subscribe to get updates on all his future endeavors.
