I've always loved reading since I was a kid. I never thought I could write because of how I was taught you were supposed to write a story. But my brain doesn't work as structured like that.

It wasn't until I read Stephen King's book, On Writing. After trying his suggestions I was soon writing over a thousand words a day at times. I suggest everyone should read it. It changed my life.

So a year and a half later I had a full blown novel. I'm publishing parts of it here to see what you amazing readers think. I am still working on the first draft so be kind.

It was very strange during the writing process as the book soon took a life of it's own. Honestly, for most of the time I had no idea at all what was going to happen until my fingers typed it.

I have the entire novel finished, but had to split it into two parts because it was too large for a first time author.

I have finally found a good friend of mine whom I did not even know did Editing work who has kindly offered her assistance and with her help I've uploaded a newly edited version of book one. I hope you like it and let me know if there are any errors we missed. Thank you Liz! :) @EJNellis

The first book is kind of a mix of Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sliders, Ann Rice and a little Stephen King. I guess now you could say there's a bit of Stranger things in it too lol.

I'm working on the next book in the series which will be set in a Steampunk world.
