Hey there! My name's Alec John Belle. I'm 21 years old and I've been writing stories since I was in the fifth grade. At 16 years old, I self-published my debut novel, an LGBT-themed story titled Before I Break. When I was 12, I came up with a paranormal young adult series called The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles, and the first book was released when I was 17.
The following year, I was accepted by a publishing company called Booktrope. I released the second Forbidden Darkness novel through them, re-released the first book and Before I Break, as well as released a new novel, The Long Road Home. After a year with them, Booktrope unfortunately closed and all the rights to my books reverted back to me.
Since then, I have been using Wattpad to my benefit. My first Wattpad-exclusive story was Fear Games, a muder-mystery serial that has become my most-read story on this site. I also put up my novel The Long Road Home, the story of a girl in a psychiatric hospital after a suicide attempt. I am working on getting the first three Forbidden Darkness Chronicles books up for readers to enjoy.
On top of that, my newest series Catastrophic Chloe is a murder-mystery about four teenagers that find themselves wrapped up in a series of murders with someone watching their every move. Finally, I am also rewriting Before I Break as a serialized story exclusively for Wattpad so that readers can enjoy a better version of the story for free.
Mental health is an important part of my life, which is why you'll find that in every one of my stories, there is at least one character with mental illness. More often than not, there's more. LGBT characters also make appearances as main and secondary characters in my books.
Thanks for checking out my profile! I hope you enjoy what you read. See below for all my social media links.
