Ah yes, the most difficult part about filling out the profile: the personal disclosure. Let's get to it, yes?
Hey, my name is Shawn. My nick is from one of the first books I got to a third reading with a major publishing house and so has a bit of personal significance. I've been writing since I was a teenager (damn, that long??) and love it. My specialty is fantasy, but I've penned some sci-fi that often bends towards fantasy, and I love blending genres.
I've kicked around the world a bit, spending time in all kinds of places in Canada, the States and over in Europe. And I've considered it all research, since the best place an author can draw their inspiration from is their experiences. I'm a bit of a people watcher too, and find myself analysing human behavior on a regular basis but it's all research, . . honest. >_>
I love reading almost as much as I love writing. How can you write if you don't love to read? I also love music and usually have something stirring in my headphones as I write. And I enjoy movies, usually the typical action or fantasy/sci-fi kind, even if I DO think I could write better. lol
So, if you've dropped in to see what I'm about, thanks for visiting. Hopefully I've made your visit to Wattpad that much more interesting.
A quick note: with the exception of the first two books in the 'Risen' series, 'Bloodsword', 'Hand Over Fist', and my anthologies, stories posted here aren't complete. Furthermore they are beta versions that are certainly not very polished, with plenty of mistakes. So don't hate my bad spelling and grammar too much.
Finally, I am no longer taking reading requests. I simply don't have the time. And do not advertise your stories in my story's comment section. That's pretty uncool. I delete them instantly and put you on ignore.

Greetings and Salutations,
I am an old fart with to much time on his hands. I have been doing stories off and on for years but only in the last few years decided to post some of them. I originally started posting an an adult site hence many of my stories will have adult themes. From what I understand due to this you might need to follow me to access them.
I am planning on doing stories without some of the adult situations so that most people can read them no matter what their ages are. If you have any comments, questions, or want to say hi please don't hesitate.
Having said all that I hope that you enjoy my writings and musings that I am going to be posting. I will say that most of my stories are going to be fantasy and science fiction related. If I want reality I can turn on the news or look out my window as the emergency vehicles go past.
NOTE: I am not taking read my story requests at this time.
I see you. The real you. The you that you should be proud of, and the one you should be ashamed for. You're beautiful - Tricia Fleming
Having a rough day? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That's called purpose. You're alive for a reason. Don't give up.
Cacoethes scribendi (Latin) is the insatiable desire to write.

Рад Вас приветствовать, уважаемые читатели, друзья! Обожаю поглощаться в мир, где другая проекция(сны). И счёт измерений - бесконечное множество... Где жизнь и время, проведённые на нашей планете - равны ничтожно малому отрезку времени в другом мире. А вот в каком уголке Вселенной, сколько парсеков (3,26 световых лет = 1 парсек) до неё - вот это вопрос. До ближайшей к нам звезде, Альфа Центавра - 4,8 световых года. Задумайтесь! Вокруг этой звезды вращаются планеты, твёрдые и газообразные, как у нас... Но там жизни нет! Спектральным анализом Хабл (телескоп) показал - НЕТ там существования живой материи. А вот туманность Андромеды ( Вы эту галактику видите без телескопа) - вот там действительно нашим последующим потомкам придётся побывать.
В среду, 22 февраля этого года, на специальной пресс-конференции в NASA было объявлено о том, что на расстоянии в 39,5 световых лет от нас находятся семь планет, по размеру напоминающих Землю. Три из семи - в "зоне обитаемости". Планеты находятся в системе TRAPPIST-1. Погуглите, поймёте...
Да и вообще, хм.., каждый атом в нашем организме - это результат взрыва сверхновой звезды, и не одной, долго объяснять. Мы - продукт Вселенной! Мы - эксперимент. Но не побочный... Знайте об этом!!!
I end up writing a lot in my car. I park in some parking lot and eat my breakfast. Then I write for about an hour and then I go to work. It's the hardest and the easiest part of my day.
Just so I remember for myself:

Okay. Just a couple of things. ^_^
1) Please do not edit my works for spelling or grammar. Thanks!
2) I am so sorry people, but I no longer take read requests. Any requests left anywhere on my pages will be quickly deleted. Again, I am so sorry about that. Thank you for paying attention to this. :-)
I thank you guys so much for following! ^_^ You're the best!! Oh I'm so sorry, but I...uh...I don't do the...the 'follow back' thing. Sorry! :P
Writing is like bleeding.
I can only do a little bit at a time.
It's very painful.
I do a little, and then I rest.
I do a little, and then I rest, again.
Eventually what takes shape is a smaller version of me, but still every bit me, because at its most basic--it is me.
This other version of me, this littler one, unlike the real version of me
will live forever.
I would like to show my special gratitude to @audreymei, as she has read every last little word that I've posted on wattpad so far! ^_^ Thank you!
And as always, thanks to Cantabile for all eternity for all of her marvelous covers.
My name is John Shirey and I am a retired chemist with five children and seven grandchildren. I have lots of time to spend on my writing hobby. I prefer science fiction and fantasy but I have written a novel about marriage. Actually, I like all forms of writing, including poetry.
