Author has written 2 stories for Historical, and Young Adult.

I call myself Alex, though they call me many other things. With my full name I already have some established Internet presence in the field of music. But instead of profiting from my Google page rank, I want to prove my abilities with language and words in a fresh new space.

In a nutshell, I am a to-be fiction writer currently stuck as a Geology student. As much as the sight of barren bedrock thrills me, I always knew that writing is my vocation after an epiphany at the age of sixteen. Ever since, the fountain of inspiration never stopped flowing.

I love languages. Having spent the first half of my life in a socio-linguistic tradition significantly different from the one in which I now live taught me to see the beauty in every turn of phrase and to savour the taste of every word on my tongue, familiar or foreign.

Always frustrated with the fact that ideas come to me faster than I can write, I wish to use this place as a regular work-out ground to connect the pencil tip better with my mind. To that end, this site will be a collection my literary endeavours. With words, I hope to add a grain of happiness to your day by painting the great adventure that we call life.

Cheers,
Alex
