Greetings to friends old and new!
If you are looking for a full-length novel, I suggest taking a peek at DISGUISED, a mystery/chick lit story about a writing student who claims his mentor has stolen his manuscript! Set in beautiful Portland, Maine, this story has a little bit of romance, a lot of fashion, and enough intrigue to keep you guessing who did what right up until the end.
If you would rather try a sample first, there are a few short stories over there in my list.
JENNIE'S GOT SOME GUM is my latest with a theme of not-fitting-in.
I NEVER WAS THAT FOND OF KAFKA is a chick lit/Kafka mash-up--weird and funny, if I do say so myself.
UNLIKELY OBJECTS is a Christmas story in four parts.
ESCAPE, USA is an emotional story about teenage depression/mental illness.
52 FLASH has a few short-short stories in various genres.
I interviewed some amazing Wattpad writers in LADIES ON LIFE INTERVIEWS.
A little bit about me. I wrote a column, news and feature stories for my local weekly newspaper for three years. In October '15, I decided to take a break from journalism and try a few new things. I have a new part-time job in a law office. I am working on rewriting my chick lit/mystery story. I am writing literary fiction short stories and submitting them to literary magazines.
I'm addicted to books. I've had to limit my purchases as I've run out of space on the bookshelves and I really, really like print. I'm beginning to use the library again, at least until my book habit it under control, lol.
I also love coffee. Books and coffee are my only true addictions. I will one day own my own cafe with a literary theme. The whole place will be lined with bookshelves. I will have a good excuse for buying books...ahem, dear, it's for the business!
I'm a wife. I'm a mom
I'm going gray slowly but surely.
Sean McMahon lives and works in Liverpool, England, with his partner and two children. Dark Remains, his debut novel, was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
Publishers Weekly on this 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi Finalist:
"This powerful historical novel vividly evokes London in 1842 and the terrifying plight of 13-year-old Maggie Power and her younger brother Tom. Fine characterization...and skilled pacing make this a real page-turner."
Wattpad readers on completing Fight Or Flight:
"This is hands down one of the best books I have ever read...And I have to say I'm honestly in tears after reading this. Still crying. This was truly an excellent read from start to finish."
"This book is absolutely amazing! It was such a well written book that had many powerful parts. I was crying by the end...This is most definitely one of the best story that I have read here on Wattpad and it hit me extremely hard.&quot"
"This is such a brutally amazingly written book."
"I found this book both beautiful and shocking. Beautiful in the writing, you have done a truly amazing job. It's always a good sign when you finish a book of the style with tears trickling down your cheeks."

"This book is amazing I am crying right now...I hope others enjoy it as much as I did!"

"I loved this book. I've read thousands of books and this book I will always remember and think about."
"A powerful story about bullying, I don't think I've read anything like it."

Placebogirl è una gothic ossessionata dalla musica che vive in simbiosi con il suo i-pod. Disegnatrice a perditempo, non può fare a meno di esprimersi attraverso questa arte. Ama qualsiasi tipo di lavoro creativo, datele matite, pennelli e colori e sarete migliori amici per sempre! Da qualche anno si è data anche alla scrittura, dando alla luce tutte le fanfiction che troverete qui. Canta da quando è nata e da sempre sogna di poterlo fare professionalmente, anche se molto probabilmente non reggerebbe i ritmi del mondo dello spettacolo. Da tre anni è entrata nel mondo del cosplay e si diverte molto a impersonare i suoi personaggi preferiti. Gentile e disponibile con chi lo merita, diventa il vostro peggior nemico se le pestate i piedi. Non segue le mode o le correnti ma preferisce sostenere fino all'ultimo le proprie idee anche a costo di andare contro il mondo intero. Amante dei manga e della cultura nipponica, riconosce in Ai Yazawa il suo unico Dio. Odia i ragni e l'ipocrisia.
Ha lasciato incomplete alcune storie su One Piece, che molto probabilmente non finirà (a meno che non si svegli domattina con una ritrovata e fortissima passione per il manga che le dia un motivo valido per farlo). Dopo essersi presa una lunga pausa dalla scrittura, si è ritrovata per caso a scrivere una piccola shot su Detective Conan in occasione della ShinRan Week. Da allora ha ripreso e sta tutt'ora riprendendo pian piano a scrivere su questo nuovo fandom. Conta di tornare presto a scrivere anche su Nana!

"Non mi importa chi o che cosa sceglierai, l'unica cosa che conta è la tua felicità. Anche se dentro di me so che non sarò mai una persona buona, io che mi rifletto nei tuoi occhi, volevo essere forte e flessibile, come l'eroina di un manga...Troppo perfetta, per essere vera."
I am Ramanujam (Ram), an agile coach by day and a wannabe writer trying to learn the ropes in whatever time is left, night or otherwise.
I started writing poetry to justify my poor English grades back in 1999, and continue to saunter in the writer-realm, having found it to be an effective alibi for poor grades in everything else.
A compulsive short-story/flash fiction writer, I prefer writing on the reality-fiction genre, touching on people, relationships, conflicts, emotions and the likes.
I have released a collection of short stories and a novella (on Amazon and Smashwords) and am presently working on a scrapbook-style novella in the personal genre.
Links to my book are available on my blog: http://ramanujamrsauthor.blogspot.in
I am a Christian and I am currently writing an inspirational/adventure novel. I am also writing some poetry, two unfinished fan fiction stories, an unfinished novel, some short stories, book reviews, a page on quotes, and riddles.
Hobbies: Reading, writing, drawing, running, and playing the cello (not in that order)
favorite color: green
favorite band: Skillet
favorite authors: C.S. Lewis, Gilbert Morris, Harper Lee, Susan Collins, Jack London, George Orwell, Shannon Hale, Kathryn Stockett, Pittacus Lore, Michael Crichton, Ted Dekker, Brian Jacques, Roald Dahl, S.E. Hinton, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini, and, of course, J.R.R. Tolkien.
favorite musicians/composers: John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Ludwig Van Beethoven, George Bizet, George Gershwin, Helen Jane Long, Yo-Yo Ma, Howard Shore, Johannes Brahms, Audiomachine, Aaron Copland, Karl Jenkins, Benjamin Britten, Edgar Meyer, Camille Saint-Saens, Alan Menken, and Antonio Vivaldi
My favorite genres to read and write are: science fiction, fantasy, spirituality, action, adventure, and a small amount of suspense. Yes, I know that's hardly selective, but the mixing of science fiction/fantasy and spiritual are my all time favorites! I simply detest anything romantic because they are usually the main Bringers of Cliche. Horror and mystery scare me and I'm usually bored out of my mind when I read historical fiction. But this is a challenge to prove me wrong, so if you have a great romance, horror, mystery, or historical fiction novel that has no sensuality or foul language then recommend it for me.
Live long and prosper
May the odds be ever in your favor
May the coming years bring you great happiness
Farewell, my brave Hobbits. My work is now finished.
