Author has written 13 stories for Fantasy, Young Adult, Fantasy, General, and Romance.

Hey. :D I love history, writing, reading, and politics. I have a background in Psychology and mental health which is why I'm very interested in the social and inner development of my main and secondary characters. I've been writing since 8th grade, but have been making up stories waaay longer than that.

My fanfiction stories are in this site:

Favorite books: The Harry Potter series (of course), The Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner (They are all pure genius!!), Holes and Sixth Grade Secrets by Louis Sachar, When It Happens by Susane Colasanti (this book changed my LIFE!), The Awakening by Kate Chopin, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun by Robico

A list I have of movies for inspiration and/or reference: Cutthroat Island (Greena Davis!), Treasure Planet, all 4 POTC movies, Peter Pan (2003 version), The Princess of Thieves (Keira Knightly!), Hook (RIP Robin Williams!), Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (it's very entertaining), Tarzan (Phil Collins kicks ass!), Ever After, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (Kevin Costner version), Shakespeare in Love (Oh, Joseph Fiennes...), The Musketeer (BADASS CHOREOGRAPHY!!), Stardust, Ruby Sparks (Oh, Paul Dano...), Black Sails (TV show, prequel to Treasure Island novel - SO WORTH WATCHING!!!)

Writing Update:

11/30/22 - Hello my readers! I wanted to let you know that not only do I have a new story, A Time for Everything, but I also have moved the complete The Pirate's Legacy series onto Wattpad. You can find them under my username kdutton90! I'm sorry for the confusion, but FictionPress is not really safe for TPL series, which is why since the idiot who plagiarized New Beginnings I have gone through the trouble of copyrighting my works that I put up on here SO PLAGIARIZE ME AND I'LL SUE YOU FOR AT LEAST $100,000 WITH THE FULL MIGHT OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AS THE WIND IN MY SAILS!!!

Remember, REVIEWS = MORE INSPIRATION for me and my muse!


Matt (my ray of sunshine!): "Don't settle. It's always bad when people settle for the sake of settling. You get what you want first!"

Tim McIlrath (lead singer of my fave band, Rise Against): "Revolution starts at learning. If you're not angry, you're not paying attention."

Lavezzo (my former Ethics professor): "Conditional love is when you love someone for their body. Unconditional love is when you are willing to be with somebody in the heights of ecstacy and the depths of tears."

Mr. George Feeny (Boy Meets World): "I believe that when you find love, you hold on to it and cherish it because there is nothing finer, and it may never come again."

Pudd'nhead Wilson (in self-titled book by Mark Twain): "There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, and the three form a rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him you have read one of his books; 2, to tell him you have read all of his books; 3, to ask him to let you read the manuscript of his forthcoming book; No. 1 admits you to his respect; No. 2 admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear in to his heart."

Eugenides (A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner): "What you learn for yourself, you will know forever."

Frederick Douglas: "Do not satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things. Awaken people's curiousity. It is enough to open minds; do not overload them."

King Solomon: "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith."

Walt Disney: "I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained."

Stephen King: "If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot."

Mrs. Bhave (The Management of Grief by Bharati Mukherjee): "I was always controlled, but never repressed."

Mark Twain: "Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Jean-Paul Sartre: "Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does."

Jane Eyre (Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte): "If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust, the wicked people would have it all their own way: they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse. When we are struck at without a reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should--so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again."

Steve Jobs (Think Different ad): "Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Lindy (Car Wash): "Honey, I'm more man than you'll ever be and more woman than you'll ever get."

Edmund Burke: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Robin Williams: "No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."

Pablo Picasso: "What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who only has eyes, if he is a painter, or ears if he is a musician, or a lyre in every chamber of his heart if he is a poet, or even, if he is a boxer, just his muscles? Far from it: at the same time he is also a political being, constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. How could it be possible to feel no interest in other people, and with a cool indifference to detach yourself from the very life which they bring to you so abundantly? No, painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war."

Nicholas Winton: "One can only hope somehow or other, goodness, kindness, truth, honor will prevail and people will realize it's not good enough just to say, 'Today I have done no harm. I've been a good person,' but should have been able to say, 'I was given the opportunity today and I did do some good.' "

Gilbert (Social Work Policy professor) on racism: "I don't care what's in your heart. What I care about is how you treat me."

Dr. Seuss: "Be who you are and say what you feel. Because those who mind, don't matter. And those who matter, don't mind."

President Harry S. Truman: "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."

Captain James Flint (from Black Sails tv series): "They paint their world full of shadows and then they tell their children to stay close to the light. Their light. Their reasons. Their judgments. Because in the dark there be dragons. But it isn't true. We can prove it isn't true. In the 'dark,' there is discovery, there is possibility. There is freedom in the dark once someone has illuminated it."

Martin Luther King, Jr.: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."

President John F. Kennedy: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

Torquato Tasso: "Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul, that you never knew was missing."
