PART 5: WORDS OF WISDOM
What are the most important elements of good writing? Mood. I believe in order to write well, you have to be in a certain state of mind or mood. The writing with flow along with it.
Do you have any advice for other writers? Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t become a published author. Don’t let negative criticism get you down with reviews either.
What do you feel is the key to your success? To keep on writing and coming out with new stories for everyone to enjoy.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Your support means everything. I appreciate each and every one of you who read my stories, give me feedback and leave reviews.
What are your current / future project(s)? – Up next is Book 2 in the Sempiternal Series. Everyone seemed to fall in love with Sarenah, Draco and Saint in Evanescent, Book 1, so I’d better get started on another one in that series.

A MAGIC WITHIN: Normalcy. I need to get back to a state of normalcy. What’s happened to me? Why am I here in this orphanage, and why am I forbidden to leave? Everyone is so very cruel here. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. It’s the paranoia getting to me. It’s like someone’s always watching, always listening. There’s a general fear around here, and for some reason, it seems fueled by my arrival, but why are they afraid of me? I didn’t ask for this. I don’t even know how I got here. I need to go home. My parents must be worried sick. There has to be someone here who can help me, who can give me answers and lead me in the right direction so I can get out of here. There is this one boy, Lydic. Could he be my key to getting out? I can see it in his eyes he feels sorry for me. He seems to know more than he’s letting on. These people aren’t like anyone I’ve ever met before. They act like I have secrets, but they’re the ones not talking. I’ve never been alone like this, and I’ll do whatever it takes to figure out what’s going on and get out.
