About the Author
Carter Ossian has always had a love for all things mystery, favoring pieces that integrate a sense of subjectivity, as well as multiple thought-provoking elements. Works of literature that lead the audience to search through the possibilities of the conclusion are, in his opinion, the most impactful, as they allow the reader to become part of the story, playing along as if they were the detective piecing together clues. His piece, Chaotic Reasoning, beautifully demonstrates this in a unique fashion. By excluding key details and points of view while keeping the true intention of the piece at the forefront, Ossian leaves the audience second-guessing each character's potential motives until the very end. An upcoming, motivated writer, Ossian has published several short stories and poems in his time as a college student, preparing him for his biggest writing feat to date: Chaotic Reasoning.
