In October 2010, Tyler was nearly killed in a car crash, which took his right arm and required his skull to be rebuilt. He struggled through a depressing recovery, until his grandfather gave him American Assassin. Tyler was hooked. He has since read all of Vince’s books, and while he is now disabled he is excited about his son who was born on May 1.
My name is Tyler and I wanted to share something with you. First of all I want to say thank you for writing your books, they helped save my life. I was nearly killed in a car accident by no fault of my own in October 2010. I lost my right arm, and had significant brain damage and memory loss. I have a rebuilt skull and struggle to get through each day. My grandpa gave me American Assassin and I was instantly hooked. I ordered all of the books and it pulled me out of a deep and scary depression. I simply wanted to share that with you and say thank you. From the bottom of my heart.
I'm 27 years old and disabled now, my son was just born on May 1, 2013. It's been exciting to say the least. I'm a huge fan and supporter of you and I am very glad you are doing better now after your cancer issue as well. I consider you a role model, and your prose is the best that there is! Thank you for taking the time to write and for saving my life. God only knows where I'd be if I stayed in the dark place that I was in mentally. God bless you Mr. Flynn.
