21, Female and about to graduate :O I shall upload a picture of myself in my graduation hat, looking as dorky as ever.
Writing has always been a passion of mine. So I hope you all enjoy my stories, I'm always inspired by my roots as Asian, thus I love to explore the theme of identity crisis in my writings. Recently, after acquiring a passion for history, I have decided to switch into a traditional english/gothic type novel which I will publish on here. I would love feedback on how you enjoy/dont enjoy my stories.
I enjoy football (Liverpool FC), rock music, alternative rock music, drawing, playing my guitar and I definitely would say i am inspired by nature and by my kooky dreams.
Enjoy reading people. And If you would like me to read your material, then just comment and I will.
My Soul is seen by Candlelight:
This is the story of Emily DeLisle, a bastard born of a commoner and a member of the Aristocracy. As a child, neglected by her father Lord Montagu, Emily always dreamed of the mother she was never allowed to see. She was told by her father, her mother was insane. As she got older, and increasingly more secluded as a result of her fathers ever expanding nursery, Emily found peace through her love for nature. When an arranged marriage became set up for her with the son of an Earl, Emily found some form of happiness at last until the night after the wedding, she and her brother Alain were kidnapped and taken to Vermontei, a French village notorious for its association with a witch coven. These evil women lay undercover as herbalists during the day, yet by night they visit the undergrowth of the village, where they perform rituals and spells, on lovers, friends and the political order. As Emily finally meets her mother for the first time, she realises the new powers that have opened up to her. Her fate is seemingly written as the chief of this coven and the title of the new mistress of Lucifer is bestowed upon her. However when she gives birth to her own daughter, Emily must choose between confinement in the undergrowth of Vermontei, or to escape the coven with her daughter and brother, and back to the life she once knew with neglectful father and over attentive husband.
The Second Generation:
'I’ve always felt the outsider in my own family. I realised as I was growing up I didn’t want to do the things they all did. I don’t want to marry at 18 and have children at 20, and then just do the housework and raise the kids. I don’t want to be like my mother, marrying at 16 and having 4 children by 24. I want to do something, and make something of myself.'
A story exploring the themes of identity crisis in Asian/Western Society. Ada Saad was born in Bradford, England to Pakistani parents.
