Author has written 1 story for Young Adult.

Since you are reading this bio, I am assuming that you have already read some of my works. If that's the case, then perhaps you have already noticed that I do not enjoy being normal. My writing is not traditional, and neither are my stories. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Having a signature writing style is the best way to keep yourself apart from the other writers that are out in the world. Be different, and be noticed. That is the motto that I try to live by, and so far it hasn't failed me too horribly. (there are always exceptions, however I would prefer not to go into those)

My passion for writing came many years ago to the time I finished my first real novel, Stone Soup. A kid's story, perhaps, but it ignited within me a fascination of the possibility of words. It has always amazed me how the 26 letters of the English alphabet can create unparalleled tales of adventure, treachery, horror and encouragement, and how they can inspire emotions from so many people. This amazement led me to write many short stories; not of which were any good, yet with each story I got a little better, and now I finally feel like I can go public with my latest works. It has always been my dream to get published, and this is my first step towards that goal.

Favorite Novels:

Eragon/Eldest
City of Ember
The Kite Runner
Things Fall Apart
The Bartimeaus Trilogy

Personal Info:

Sex - Male
Age - 17
Location - Wisconsin (say cheese!)
Personal Obsession - Stories. You name the medium - novels, movies, anime, plays, etc. - and I've used it to delve into a new world and watch as the protaganists face their fates. I have always been fascinated by how something that never happened or ever could happen can evoke so many emotions and even change personalities. These are things that only stories can do. Which is why I write my own.
Music - Mostly Christian rock/metal, such as: Skillet, Emery, Decyfer Down, This Beautiful Republic, Demon Hunter, Underoath, Project 86, Spoken, Dead Poetic, Blindside, War of Ages...
