I began writing at the age of eleven, and knew that I wanted to write stories - and not just for fun, but as my career. From then until the age of thirteen, I had accomplished creating my first trilogy called "Eatheon" which all three books consisted over 250 pages.
From then on, I went to write more novels which were not essentially that good, yet I was determined to find "the one" story that would make history - at least, in my mind. Yet by the time I had entered high school I had written ten novels and had not found it. Not only this, but I found it difficult to write about the aspects of everyday life - the inner turmoil of our lives. Divorce, step-dads, step-moms, the bad boy boyfriend, coming of age tales, high school life lessons, teenage girl novels, and the list continues. None of those things interested me, at least not yet anyway.
The genre I had a knack for was Fantasy. It was a entirely unpredictable place that held no boundaries as to what your characters could do. In those times there was no rules, and if a figure of power thought the actions or crimes you committed were justifiable, you lived and reigned over all - these times created mad men and heroes, damsels in distress, monsters, and wars of Middle Earth. Finally, among all the fantasy, I had found it. "The One" was my greatest inspiration that I wanted published, and later accomplished my goal.
"Alexander: Sacrifice. Instinct. Rebirth." was published March 2012 and is by far my most favorite of all novels, however my retelling on Swan Lake, a novel I am currently planning for publication in November 2012, it is called The Vow of Everlasting Death: A Retelling of Swan Lake, and you can read excerpts on my blog, check out character pictures on my facebook fan page, and more. I am very excited for this novel, and I am pleased to be the first to retell it in this fashion of a dark, epic fantasy.
I knew I was born to be a writer, and I hope that one day when I am old and gray I will live towards my ending days surrounded by books, maybe in my own library, or crowded at my tiny desk, but regardless I will have lived my dream - not many people can say they've done that, and who knows, maybe they'll write a book about me.
