He began working on his first major project at the age of 17. Inspired by a deep passion for reading as well as an enjoyment for musical composition, the earliest version of the novel “The Kingfisher” took form.

Torn between several pursuits including playing collegiate football, working for the local marine park SeaWorld, Werstler continued to write without any major publication outside of the school’s undergraduate newspaper.
He has since graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing. His studies included analysis of fundamental literature spanning a wide view in both historical and geographical aspects.
He has written several short stories and poems as well as create both the story and illustration for the children’s book, “The Fish and the Dove”.
