W.I.P aka my MO

Browsing through the shelves in the bookstore my fingers touched the spines of books written by my favourite authors. The many adventures and tribulations I went on, flashed with each touch. Then there nestled between the stories that changed me whilst inspiring me is my own published story; Defying Darkness -- The Scarlet Age Chronicles. It's as if the other books are hugging mine, welcoming it... that would be my ultimate dream come true.

My work in progress I fondly call my MO aka Magnum Opus, has been in the making for a while now. The ideas and characters came to me some years ago. I have been distracted here and there, now I have put on blinders to make me focus. Acute A.D.D in check. I've been researching, watching documentaries and travelling (a great excuse) to get ideas. Writing has been and still is beautiful torture. Now more then ever, I'm determined to finish this epic story playing out in my head. My characters are constantly annoying me, wanting their voices to be heard. Come hell or high water I will make sure their stories are told.

My work in progress The Scarlet Age Chronicles is best described as the love child of Stephenie Meyer and Dan Brown, whose paternity could also be questioned to be that of Paulo Coelho. I love history, myths, conspiracies, random facts and travelling. My love of these things I inter-weaved into a fictional story. I'm a big fan of historical fiction, which makes me wonder 'what if?' Hopefully one day I can get readers to ponder the same with my writing. Stay tuned and fingers crossed.

*My characters also accused me of being a bad writer. Check out what they had to say to me here.

His brown mosaic gaze made my heart flutter like the butterflies in my stomach. "Where here in my twisted mind? You're just a figment of my subconscious Rai."
"Perhaps. Perhaps not. Nothing is impossible. Some things science cannot explain and is not meant too. Just because it's in your head does not make it less real. Do you believe this is real?"
