Meet Aspiring Author
I’ve known that I wanted to be a writer since I was a little shy of ten years old. I know what you’re thinking, that’s a bit young, but from the moment I wrote my first poem, that was it for me, it became my passion and poems shortly turned into stories, and stories turned into novels.
I get inspired by so many things, I have a saying that my mind is over active because I get the most amazing book at ideas at the most random times. I can be sitting in the doctor’s office, and get a big idea, but that’s just how my mind works, and ultimately I believe that’s what makes me an even better writer.
Most of my inspiration comes from music, it’s a need I have while writing, if I’m not listening to music, I’ll never get writing done. While I’m writing I tend to listen to a lot of rock music. I love fall out boy, Trapt, Bullet for my Valentine and I’ve just discovered this new band (new to me anyways) called you me at six. They’ve inspired my stories in many ways.
Some of my biggest writing influences though are Stephen King, Nicholas Sparks, Jamie McGuire, E.L. James, and the list goes on. I look up to all of these writers in so many ways, and I only hope to be as amazing as they are someday.
I tend to only write in third person. I’ve tried many times to write in first person, but I only ever seem to fail at that. I feel that I catch emotions and descriptions better while writing in third person. I feel a closer connection to my characters and the world I create in this way.
At the moment, I’m working on revising my first ever written book. It’s the book that’s the closest to my heart than any of my others. My first book to me, is like my first love, it has a part of my heart that none of my other books contain. It’s special to me. It’s the first world I’ve ever created, and I can’t explain it in words, but I’m just in love with it.
The Power of Love
(Just to warn you the title might change)
Ian Anderson has everything he could ever want. He’s rich, he owns his own business, he lives in New York, and women everywhere are throwing themselves at him.

Seven years ago, Ian had been madly in love with the only girl who’s ever captured his heart. Allison. They grew up together, best friends who fell in love.
