What Makes Bryan Cassiday Unique?

Cassiday cites Ernest Hemingway and James Joyce as his  main inspirations. As a student, he felt greatly encouraged when his 12th grade English teacher called one of his stories "Hemingwayesque." As a young man, he identified with  the character of Stephen Dedalus from James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. 

Now that he is older, and an established author himself,  Bryan Cassiday has a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in exceptional writing.

When asked to give advice to young writers, he encourages them to experiment with their own imaginations. He's been known to say: "No one really KNOWS anything about writing even [great] writers."
