********************************************************************************************************

Well as you may have noticed I'm a 14 year old teenager.  I'm in middle school, the 8th grade, and I'm already a published author.  That's a big deal...lol

I started putting all of my skill into writing, for the most part, in the 4th grade.  Which was about 4 years ago.  I've been writing the same novel ever since.  Hopefully I'll have it finished soon :D

Currently I have only got one book published, and it's a collection of 14 short stories.  The majority of these stories I wrote for a creative writing class that I had this year.  So I suppose that's my motivation for writing...at least for that part.

Why did I start writing in general?  Well...I'd just finished listening to my dad telling me about the Lord of the Rings.  Everyone likes those books/movies right?  Well I'd just heard the story line and I thought I'd start to write a book.

And I'm still writing it today.

So, like many people, the Lord of the Rings has affected my writing and outlook on the fantasy genre in general.  I enjoy reading, and creating, morally sound characters--with integrity, and courage, though not Superman :D.

Another aspect of story-telling that I've gleaned from these books and others are the simple ideas of redemption, deliverance, and grace.  These things have been written into this planet since the beginning of time.  And, as Tolkien has said, I believe that I am called to be a "creator" like my heavenly father.  I can imitate my God through my writing, including the very same aspects and plans that He has placed in the real world.

And all of my stories cling to these truths.

I always knew, dreamed, that I'd become a published author.  But I never thought it would come this soon.  I'm still in school...and I've already got a book with my name on it.  That's a pretty awesome feeling.

Aside from writing I've been an active Christian in my church and Youth Group for pretty much all of my life, and my faith plays a major role in my stories.  I've done Martial Arts for a few years now and have enjoyed it very much.  I play in my school's band and am pretty much an all-around kinda guy.

I hope you enjoy my writing :D
