Actor Steven Ogg is well known for his role as Simon in The Walking Dead and the voice of Trevor Philips in Grand Theft Auto V. Ogg has recently begun sharing bits of poetry on social media. This led to the publication of his first book, Catharse - is Volume 1.

The book, from the UK-based publisher Pegasus Publishers, is a collection of Ogg-mented realities of the cathartic moments people experience. His thought is that by sharing, people will feel less alone and begin to heal, something that helped him in his own life. "Ogg hopes that this book provides the opportunity to support us all in moving forward with hope and a little less pain in our hearts. Read aloud for further enjoyment."
