power they call the Skills. Thereâ€™s great potential to this power,
but a menacing undertone taints those who wield it. Their intentions
are sinister, without purpose, and their morals, questionable.

where imagination and dreams can thrive. This is why I write Fantasy.
Within my characters I find the strength and hope for a better

these characters that I wish to write, and these journeys I want to
take my reader’s on.
writing my trilogy, The Shadows Creed Saga, for the past five years.
The original idea came to me back in high school where I had the
support of many of my English teachers to continue writing the book.
However, I realized that in order to write a good book, I needed to
have experienced life more. I needed to lose someone close. I needed
to have my heartbroken. I needed to know what it was like to really
love someone, and what it means to be loved. So, I put my book away
and came back to it eight years later. I feel that I can instill my
life experiences into my characters now and really understand
discipline, experience and imagination needed to bring the books to
publication. For now, this is my records to publication and my
writing process. My only wish is to write books that take people on a
journey, and feel that perhaps they have a friend and someone to
aspire to within the pages.

They want to be there with them or be them; to hurt with them, to smell the food and taste it with them, to see the morning sun go up and to feel the afternoon rain fall on their face.
What they usually donâ€™t want is to fall asleep reading. (If they want to fall asleep reading, they can grab a textbook.)
What is one of your responsibilities as an author?
To keep the story moving at a good pace or you will lose your readers…forever, a huge no, no in our business.
So what keeps a story moving?
Dialogues is one excellent way. Most anything you need to say can be said in a dialog.
