Many of you may be wondering what is going on with my book Amethyst. Well I finally have an answer for you! Amethyst was original written and put on the market throught the blurb website but I decided to take it down. I firmly believe that Amethyst was ok but it had so much potential as a book that I had to do it over. I plan alot of changes to the book and will not put it for sale till i am moderately satisfied...

Here is my favorite poem from the entire collection. It was really hard to choice which was mmy favorite because i truly love all of them. This has to be my favorite poem because its more optimistic then the rest of the poems. All of the poems tend to be dark and filled with sadnes, hurt and anger. I love this poem because of the message behind it. It says that it is okay to feel pain and lost and hatred, because in the end ...

The Dark Side

While working on the book Amethyst, I decided out of thin air to write a collection of poems. I did not want it to be a cheery, nice, all about rainbows type of collection, I wanted something that nobody would think I wrote. That is how I got the title. I tried to take a negative spin on everything and let that inspire me to write my poems. During the time period that I was writing this, I was going through social problems just like an other teenage...

I was daydreaming about what would happen if a fight broke out in my school lunchroom and someone got stabbed. Some drama on a Degrassi kind of level. So I got to thinking and the daydreaming turnt into a story in my head and I decided to write it down.

My Inspiration For Writing Books

I believe that my inspiration for writing books come from my overactive imagination. To wind down or just to escape reality for a while I like to think "What if..." I make up stories in my head simply to do it. Hardly do i ever write my stories down. I love reading and I take books very seriously. I like to take a character out of its place in the story and replace it with myself. If it wasn't for my imagination i wo...

The first book in the Average Books Series is Amethyst. Its about a girl who falls in love after tragic events in her life. The idea for this book came to me when I was in Guyana over the summer.
