Hello,

If your reading this, you probably found me interesting enough to at least read my bio. If not, well, thanks.  Hahahaha.

Untitled Love Story is my first crack at writing. The story came to me after I read a little book called At Swim, Two Boys. I just thought what would two teenage boys in love look like in the modern day and from there the story grew. I'd never thought I'd actually write the thing, but yet here I am. It was sort of impulsive in a way. Almost like riding a bicycle (Cliche, I know. But very true.) and the need to continue was far to great. I had intended for the novel to be my own little entertainment, but after my friend read it, she offered the possibility of publishing it.

When I published my story, my greatest fear was not for myself. My greatest fear was my audience not being able to connect with my characters. I knew I wrote the book from my perspective, but I always felt like I had to consider that of my audiences. And that altered my writing process greatly. Suffice it to say, I'm very pleased to see it here, viewable by all.

Hopefully you enjoy it.



And if you an avid reader of Untitled Love Story, join the fanbase. You'd be warmly welcomed!



 

I believe music is crucial to writing. It provides levity and concentration, while blocking out the surrounding noise. So I'd like to share with you a few artists that help me write.

The Civil Wars. Joy Williams voice is so haunting.

Jessie J Love her!

Adele. Of course.

Amy Winehouse. Amazing voice.

Sleeper Agent

Alicia Keys!

Chrisitna Perri

Best Coast. Amazing music.

James Morrison. Him and Jessie J make the best music. Check it out.

David Guetta. Man knows his beats. Hahaha.

Ellie Goulding. Crazy voice.

The XX. Love them!

The Black Eyed Peas. Just cuz. Hahaha.

Cults

Foster the People. But probably just their latest hit.

Sia. Amazing artist. Love her crazy voice.

Lana Del Rey. Pouty lips! Heck Yes!!

Tinie Tempah

Bruno Mars

And the list could go on, but the main ones I like are up there. We may have the same prefrences or we may not, but its all good. Thanks for considering them.





IMAGERY IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS



Untitled Love Story

What I thought the characters of Untitled Love Story would look like:

Caleb Pierce

Drew Caldwell

Dante Giordano

Stacey Evans

Justin S.

 

Thats it for now.





I'm only as strong as the strongest hardship I've ever survived.



We Found Love

Excerpt:

"I wanted to thank you. . . . . For saving my life." I replied, softly biting my lip.

His mouth flinched in hunger. He smiled playfully and placed his hand beneath my tattered shirt.                                                                                "It was worth it," he teased, making me smile. "Besides I don't know what I would do if I had lost you."              

His silver eyes blazed as he said this and all the playfulness evaporated. Lightly I moved my hand from his thigh and placed it on the side of his elegant cheekbones.                                                                                         "I don't know either," I replied tenderly.

I reached for his lips, softly touching them and felt my pulse race in response.                         

"We shouldn't be doing this," he said, his lips whispering against mine....
