Author has written 13 stories for Fantasy, General, Life, Love, and Young Adult.
Writing is one of the few things in life that I truly love. I enjoy highlighting the struggles and burdens of others because in my eyes, the harder the challenge the greater the victory. When we see the shadows and the hurting in our world we do not become a part of that shadow. Instead we use that shadow to highlight the brightly shining candle amidst the darkness, and make it stand out all the more. This is a lesson taught to me by my Creator, King, and Savior. I know this personally because that is what he did for me and I wish to follow his example. Martin Luther King Jr said, "If a man is not willing to die for something, then he doesn't deserve to live." This is something that I believe with all of my heart and soul, There is no greater sacrifice than giving up all you are. "Greater love has no one than this, that he gave up his life for his friend" NIV. This theme defines my life and in some ways leaks into my writing as well, I am by no means depressed I simply wish to look at life itself as an journey waiting to be traveled, and what is a journey without risks? What is adventure without danger? What is love without sacrifice? I am still getting started and it may be a bit raw so any helpful tips, reviews, feedback, or comments are very appreciated. I hope you all enjoy! :D

Ember by NaNixon reviews
When she finally spoke, her voice was barely discernible. "Cassandra, the fire…it is beginning to die." I shook my head desperately, refusing to accept her words—refusing to accept the consequences. Please, gods, let her be wrong.
