About the Author

I wouldn’t quite consider myself an author because I’ve only written one book. Fortunately, Amazon has a great program where you can self publish your work making it possible for others to read my work. Another reason I wouldn’t call myself an author is because I don’t look at writing as work (or my job). I work and attend school, so I would say I’m just more of a person who writes in his free time. It would be nice to make some money off of my book, but I do not do it for the money. I’ve been told that I’m creative so it gives me a sense of accomplishment when I can use my ideas to make a piece of work. The book I currently have published is 99 cents and any book I publish in the future will be the same.

If you knew me in person, you would never guess that I would write books in my free time. I’m twenty years old- love football and basketball- love listening to lil wayne- am always with my girl friend or buddies (mostly girlfriend though)- love playing PS3, especially call of duty- always watch NBA NFL NCAA games, how i met your mother, two and a half men, family guy, my name is earl, the office, bill maher, and tons of Netflix movies- I hate mtv- I don’t use facebook.

Working on next Intercepted book, the sequel!

I self published my first book for 99 cents on Kindle a few weeks ago (Intercepted).

Here’s the description:

Martin’s extended home life with his violent father pushed him to abandon his home in hopes of a better life. He traveled to the deep south in order to create a fresh start. Unfortunately, restarting in life was harder than he could ever imagine, and becomes exponentially harder once he gets mixed up with gang activity. He finds himself abducted along with a young woman. While in captivity, Martin is introduced to a dangerous drug that makes him feel spiritually enlightened giving him the sensation of talking to his dead mother.

It’s a shorter book only taking a few hours to read, but I was happy with the outcome. It was easy to write because I’ve always had the storyline in my head, but I never followed through and made a book of it. I left the end open as a chance to write a sequel. However, the second book will take much longer to write since I’m still creating the storyline, and not even I know what will happen. I haven’t sold very many, but I am aware that it is a slow “growing” process. I decided to make it very cheap because I care more about the amount of people who read it than how much I make off of it.

I haven’t picked a title… It’s somewhat difficult having so much writing left to do. I’m thinking – Intercepted: The Answer – or – Intercepted: Revenge -. I did manage to make the cover already, though. (I’m not done it but this is it so far)
