The first rule that I greatly believe in when I am writing is that you must let bad things happen to your characters, especially the protagonist.

I am always looking for new and interesting books. I recently came upon French born author Isabelle Esling's second release with Hayden Kian Publishing House, "Unwrap Your Present." The books description sounded very intriguing and I immediately knew I had to purchase the book.
Before the book arrived, I decided I was going to read the book over a two week period to get the full affect of what the book had to offer. I patiently waited and five days later…

“The reflection of who I once was has grown overshadowed by the vision of who I am supposed to one day become, and I’m left searching helplessly for who I am today.” Eyes Unveiled
Moving. You’re always moving. We all are. The question is, are you moving closer toward where you want to be?
It’s not really a question about the pursuit of happiness. I’m not asking if you’re moving closer toward becoming rich and famous. I’m not asking if you’re…Continue

A book is a work of fiction. You can make the unimaginable happen and you can let your characters do the unthinkable.
If you are writing a fantasy or supernatural story, by all means let your…Continue

As an artist (writer), I have a thing for zombies; stories about man’s hopeless plight against the flesh-hungry once-humans only to succumb (to the virus or become food) themselves. Other stories like The Road, John Carpenter’s The Thing, or even Final Destination where humans battle (whether it be a post apocalyptic world, or an otherworldly creature, or the…Continue

For one of my (currently half-finished) novels, a young girl reminiscences about her childhood and every single one of her memories of growing up are my own childhood memories.
