As an author, I don't think I fall into any of the typical stereotypes. I don't own a tweed jacket or smoke a pipe. I'm not the "booky type": I'm hardly introverted and you'll seldom find my nose buried in a book (though you might if I had a few more hours in the day). I'd rather be on a jiu jitsu mat than in a library...

I could go on, but one thing is certain: I was born to write.

You'd think that I would have figured that out sooner than my mid thirties. All the signs were there... started reading at age 3; love writing and won about every writing or poetry contest I entered from a young age through college; scored a perfect on the English SAT's (just don't ask about my math score); always found that writing was an outlet for my emotions

End of the Beginning (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
2 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2015 03:36AM
Description: Earth's ancient heroes and man's oldest and most dreaded foe collide in the greatest epic saga ever known to man. BEFORE their race became the mystical beings we now call angels, they ruled the earth as mortals in an age of mystery. Gabrius, a humble stargazer and astronomer must decipher cryptic messages as ancient as the universe itself to unravel the growing corruption of the Lightbringer before he is overtaken by the greatest villain of all time. The world as we know it hangs in the balance as one man learns to follow his heart against impossible odds and discover his true power and a destiny that has since become legend. As the Lightbringer's power grows, the seven high Seraphim must hone their unique mystical abilities to lead the fight for all they hold true and rise to meet their destiny as heroes of legend to prevent the cataclysmic end of their race's reign on earth. In a rich, epic adventure that gives new wings to the original war between good and evil, we unlock answers to some of the greatest mysteries of the ages and catch a unique glimpse into the secrets of the unseen realms.

For an author review, I'm admittedly biased. However, this book is truly original: I don't think anyone has ever written a "prequel", if you will, to the origins of angels. So in that, this book stands alone, while staying true to the historical/myth ...more
