"If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from, you look around... this is where they're made."

Georges Méliès, as spoken in the movie "Hugo"

"The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved."

Victor Hugo

Welcome to the ELARoadshow's corner of Wattpad. Hopefully, you'll find something to suit your taste.

Here on Wattpad, I am slowly trying my hand at as many genres as possible. I also try to illustrate my work with my own drawings and photos. Currently, I have a mix of short stories, poetry and fantasy available for you to sample.

The Grandmaster's Son: Forged by Fire:
My featured illustrated fantasy novel, which has also made its way onto the official Wattpad reading list for Medieval Magic and Mythology. "Grandmaster" is epic in scope, and while the first novel has been completed, the series is ongoing. It follows a teenage boy and his friends as they battle corruption and evil, trying to make the fantasy realm of Ontavia a better place. Wattys 2017 Winner.

Heavy Love:
A collection of short stories that all deal with love...sort of. "Heavy Love" has been included on the official Wattpad short story reading list called "Another Time, Another Place." Updates for "Heavy Love" are infrequent.

A collection of poetry mostly written a long time ago. Poetry was my first love, and my only traditionally published creative writing has been in this genre. Complete.

Pomegranate Seeds:
A collection of daily haiku and photographs, Summer 2016. Complete.

A collection of Flash Fiction I wrote to stretch and test my skills, Summer 2016. Complete.

I hope you find something you like!
