About Me

For all my life, I've been coming up with stories. Creative writing is a dear hobby of mine to give life to the stories and characters I have living inside my head. I hope my writings can provide you with a good and entertaining read that keeps you coming back for more!

Books: Almost anything by Jodi Picoult or Jane Austen, classics, plays, historical, political, almost anything written by a Catholic author

Currently Reading: The Spirit of Saint Francis de Sales by Jean Pierre Camus; Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy; Columbine by Dave Cullen

TV: The Office, Smallville, Conan, Colbert Report, Parks & Recreation

Music: Positive Alternative Rock (or just plain ol' Alternative Rock), Music Literature, a little bit of Musicals, Instrumental, just about anything by Mumford & Sons or The Killers. I love using music to help me with my writing when I'm trying to write in a certain mood or get into the mind of a certain character, so sometime's I end up listening to stuff I normally wouldn't otherwise :)


Writing Projects

The Guardian: The Guardian is currently the only project I'm working on. It's a Sci-Fi Drama series (though more drama than sci-fi, at least for now) about a young man, named Max, who has a pretty good life. He was raised by loving parents who instilled deep values into him. He grew up in the kind of small town you always hear about in novels and fairy tales. He loves his job as a firefighter/EMT and is devoted to his friends; Lee - Max's best friend from childhood - and Alicia - the girl next door who Max has had a crush on since the 7th grade. Then everything gets turned upside down when Max discovers he has super-human abilities. After he learns about why he has them, his life will forever change in a way he could have never imagined.

This is a story that explores what it means to be human, what happens when life doesn't turn out how we expected it to, what it means to truly love someone, and how do we respond when we find out there's a higher calling in our life. This is a story I've had in my head years now, and I've really fallen in love with it. I'm curious to see what other people think of it, so please feel free to tell me what you all think!


Updates

07/17/15: Chapter 10 is now posted! I will be doing a massive re-write of this story at some point so if anyone has constructive feedback to share please leave me a review! Even if it's just for one chapter - it would be HIGHLY appreciated! It's not easy being your own editor and not having much outside feedback to go off of :)

07/11/15: I've completed part one of The Guardian offline, and currently have half of part two completed. I've decided to upload ALL of part one onto FictionPress one chapter at a time! :) I don't do this to be cruel - I only do this to help keep The Guardian on the front pages so to speak. I plan on posting updated versions of the prologue and 7 chapters currently on here today along with Chapter 8. I will then upload a new chapter twice a week: One on Tuesdays, and one on Fridays.

In the meantime, I've submitted a completed version part one of The Guardian to a contest on Inkitt (under the title "The Guardian: A Journey Begins") AND I have a preview of part two. You can find both on my Inkitt profile: w w w(dot)inkitt(dot)com(slash)EJWedge

Please help me to continue to build an audience for The Guardian by voting for "A Journey Begins" - all you have to do is click on the little heart at the bottom of the screen (assuming you still like the story that is :) The contest ends on July 27th. Also - I welcome all constructive feedback!

09/19/14: Wow! It's been a while since I've logged on here! Well life happens... but I now have the opportunity to focus more on my writing than I have in the past three years. I've stopped uploading chapters BUT I have been working on completing The Guardian. I've decided to finish the story first and then upload chapters on a regular basis. The earliest I see this happening is in 2015... so stay tuned ;)

When this happens though, I will most likely delete what's currently on this account and upload the story anew.

10/16/11: Chapter 7 is uploaded; my apologies for not updating for 4 months. It's hard to find time for writing when you move to another state and start a new full-time job all at the same time. But I'm really motivated to start writing this story again. I probably won't be able to do regular uploads, so I will just get the chapters up whenever I can. Thank you to all who have read and reviewed this story so far - I'm very touched that people are still reading this story even after 4 months of no updates. I can't guarantee when Chapter 8 will be uploaded - but most of the draft is written and I am making my writing a priority (or at least trying to) since it helps me stay sane :) I'm really trying to focus on getting this story told and not getting hung up on minor details, which can be dealt with later. I really love this story, and my dream is to tell it in its' full completion one day. So again, thank you to all who have been supporting my story so far - it really motivates me to keep going!
