I began writing when I ran out of books to read. I am currently a senior in high school, and I am going to study engineering in college.
I am highly independent-thinking, which means I don't try to copy others. I try to make my books different from all the other books out there.
The books I write are a mixture of science fiction and fantasy. The characters can use magic, but the magic is not like the typical fantasy magic. The magic is instead an enhanced version of the magic in the religion Wicca. They were genetically engineered to have this enhanced magic as part of The Project. They are also able to turn into wolves. The transformation is not at all magical, and instead relies on physics. Their bones are not solid, and are able to rearrange to allow them to change form. The fur is... kind of a mystery as to how that pops up.
My books are unique because of the scientific explanations behind things others might simply chalk up to unexplainable magic processes. In a book I'm currently working on, I created a type of person ("race" really isn't the proper term) that has a long tail they can put their legs inside of to allow them to swim like dolphins, but still walk on land. This is instead of the old idea of mermaids with tails that magically turn into legs. I looked at the ancient mermaid idea from an engineering perspective, and created something more likely to work in real life. I even figured out how to allow the head to work both in the up-right-walking human position for land, and the aquatic position where the body and head are both horizontal to the ground.
You might say I'm passionate about my writing. I prefer "obsessed". It's more accurate.
My major influences are James Patterson and Christopher Paolini.
