Originality and creativity arises from the reconnection of pre-existing knowledge and ideas.
Most authors will tell you the same story, they started to write from an early age and the passion grew over the years until they published. My story is different, I started early, but as a reader. Over a period of four decades, I consumed more than 3000 books and yes, I did sometimes suffer from indigestion. I've always been passionate about reading and enjoy many genres, including short stories and science fiction. For some time, I brewed a story in my head and in 2011, I began working on a novel, in fact an epic, titled Perfect Genesis. After several rewrites, I entered an arrangement with another author, Mia Zielinska, to co-write this work The first book of a series of three, or possibly four books, is currently available on the Kindle platform and in paperback format from Amazon. (PERFECT GENESIS: ADOLESCENCE) the second book 'PERFECT GENESIS: CHAOS' is due for publication around Spring 2016.
I have also written several short horror stories that delve into the darker recesses of real people. Sorry, no zombies or vampires to scare you with, just the darkness that evolves and grows inside the planet's deadliest inhabitants, human beings or their creations.
I have been very fortunate to secure a publishing contract for a series of three short horror books with Kensington Gore publishers and the first book 'DEMISE & OTHER MACABRE ENDINGS?' is now published.
Recent releases: A dark and sensual novella, DEATHLY MUSINGS and a collection of 24 short stories featuring work from three other authors besides myself, you really must read DEATHLY MUSINGS AND OTHER UNFORGETTABLE STORIES.
