The Weight of Ashes: A Novel Hardcover by Zachary Steele
After a car accident claims his older brother's life, Mark Murphy's world is turned upside down. The silence of their shared bedroom, the memories of Mitch's guidance, and his mother's drunken spiral are constant reminders of the cost of his absence. But Mark isn't ready to grieve. He isn't ready to accept that his brother is truly gone. Despite the insistence of the adults in his life that he accept Mitch's death, Mark is undeterred.
They don't know what he knows.
They don't know the story of the Witch on Spook Hill.
Aided by his loyal band of misfit friends, Mark's plan to carry Mitch's ashes to the witch is complicated by the pursuit of the town sheriff and the cousin responsible for his brother's death. With no time to regroup, Mark and his friends must navigate the dangerous path to Spook Hill before the sun sets, so that Mitch can be resurrected in exchange for the life of the one who took it.

To Whom it May Concern,
My name is Zachary Steele, author of the novel, The Weight of Ashes (The Story Plant), due for release, July 13th, 2021. At its core, it is a story of coping with grief and loss, told from the vantage of 13-year-old Mark Murphy, following the death of his older brother. Though a work of fiction, The Weight of Ashes is very much a real piece of my life, offering access to the emotional truths of my struggle with grief and loss, while granting readers a relatable character and struggle they might identify with. Mark’s journey in The Weight of Ashes is filtered through a lens of pure innocence and hope, which feeds his denial. It’s only through the experience on the pages that he can find his way through the stages of grief. As with any emotional struggle, acceptance is the doorway to recovery. I hope this story opens that door for those who need the help. My own grief is by no means unique. We’ve all experienced it, and will many times over going forward. But the opportunity to speak my experiences through story, through character, through shared struggle is one, I hope, that can open a dialogue with others, encourage the sharing of stories of those we’ve lost, and open others to a community mindset toward healing and education. With The Weight of Ashes, I hope to specifically reach teens and younger adults who are seeking a way to process and understand grief. We tend to forget, as adults, that younger minds have yet to fully experience and learn to cope with life and its myriad struggles, even if they suggest otherwise. But this isn’t just a story for teens. It’s a story for everyone. Myself included. Witnessing grief through another’s viewpoint has helped to process the losses in my life. To learn. To move beyond the grief I felt, even if the pain remains.
