Background Information

Writing stories as young as seven, I've always been a big fan of fantasy, sci-fi, adventure, and horror, enjoying movies, comics, books, and video games with good story backgrounds. Writing has always been my passion. As a young writer, I found that I was bursting with ideas, always writing beginnings of stories, scenes and situations, or even just character personalities and backgrounds. I had a hard time finishing a story through, as another better and more exciting one would come to mind and I would begin on this instead, always planning to get back to the others. Having an enormous collection of story bits and ideas, I found that when I was looking through them, most had to do with the world I had created in my mind over the years, to explore during the time I try to fall asleep each night. Originally attempting to create a game based on my dream world, I compiled a large number of characters and backgrounds, quests, places, mystical and magical objects, spells, riddles, puzzles, houses and families, even daily routines and work schedules of the minor characters to interact with, and all over a course of three years. Becoming complicated and elaborate, and more and more life like, I instead decided to write a series of books about the world I had created, incorporating my growing collection of story bits, from when I was younger, from my teens, and those meant for the game, into several stories. I began to write, not start to finish, but in many places. Jumping around from scene to scene, piecing the bits together like a giant puzzle into their proper order and chapters. After five years, the first book in the series was ready for others to enjoy, with the second book following close behind.
