About Me

I'm a (currently) unpublished author from Canada. I've been writing since I was very young, and have been making up stories for as long as I can remember. I've recently finished my first full novel, but I have to admit I'm not very proud of it. I don't know, but it just doesn't seem right. Oh, well. I guess it's one of those "learning experiences". I love reading and writing! That's practically all you'll find me doing. I personally love all types of books (pretty much), especially classical literature. I love the poetic way they wrote back then and the unique way of writing that always makes me wish I could write something like that. Most of my ideas actually come from the many weird/strange dreams I get about every 2 days. They're interesting, that's for sure, but they always manage to spark an idea that get's me going. I mostly write fantasy, historical fiction and mystery/thrillers. I love taking bits from history and making them into my own ideas and just creating a new story. Fantasy is so much fun, because I get to make up my own world and I'm not bounded by the technology or historical time-line that historical fiction gives me. And mystery/thrillers are just a little hobby of mine. I love scaring people, having red-herrings and creating a slight shock when I turn the story the other way around.

I'm currently in the midst of my new novella "Victim of the Labyrinth", some little tidbits of it are/will be posted here if you want to check them out. It's more so a twist of a classical mythology story. I personally love the idea and plot I've got in my head, and I'm having a lot of fun writing and experimenting with it.

I love getting advice and constructive criticism, because they're such a big help. They allow me grow and improve as a writer. So, feel free to post some comments on what you think of my writing. I strongly believe reading helps you to grow as well. It's like learning through observation. Kinda like what you did as a child like walking, talking (more so learning through listening), how to do certain things, etc. Like I mention before, I really love the feel and sound of classical literature so if you have any books you want recommend (whether they are of the classical literature variety or any other genres) feel free to do so!

I would like to recommend George MacDonald's fairy tales. They really play on Celtic and Scottish myths, which might interest you. Only problem is they are a little hard to find. I do have some copies if you are interested.
