Written in a unique abstract style, Abstract Canyon is a memoir about the life of Kelly Oliver being born and raised in Moab Utah. Stories about the triumphs and struggles Kelly has endured in the young 28 years of his exciting random life.

You will laugh, and cry while reading Abstract Canyon. Written from Kelly's own perspective and in his own words as if he was speaking to his readers face to face, Kelly has tried to give an example for others to compare themselves to.
Kelly wrote Abstract Canyon with the intention to inspire his readers, and attempt to create hope in those who may be lost or confused.
As the author explains, his book’s writing style offers those in need an opportunity to dip in and out at will.
“This book is unique because of the many different, random stories put together, the ‘abstract’ style it was written in from my own perspective as if I were talking to people face to face, and my ability to be humbled by my life experiences,” says Oliver.
He continues, “The stories have their serious sides, as well as comical sides which will offer a glimpse into the unforgettable personality of who I am.”
Oliver’s passion to help others stretches far beyond his book and far beyond even his own life.
“I’ve said many times that I would give up my own life willingly if it meant I could save others, and honestly I would,” he adds.
Now happily married to the love of his life and with a beautiful baby son, Oliver remains committed to raising awareness of issues that blighted his own life. Therefore, $0.35 from each paperback book will be donated to numerous organizations that contribute to the research of psychological disorders in children, adults and victims of abuse.
