Edward Mullen is a novelist, podcaster, and blogger from Vancouver, Canada. His debut novel, THE ART OF THE HUSTLE, was published on August 2, 2012 with critical acclaim. With a steadily-growing fan base thirsty for more, he released his second book - a non-fiction book titled DESTINY AND FREE WILL, which explores the belief that everything happens for a reason. One year after his debut novel, his highly anticipated second novel was released - PRODIGY - a futuristic tale focusing on the unforeseen effects of technology.

Born and raised in beautiful British Columbia, Edward developed a love for the wilderness. This love, combined with an innate curiosity about all things, eventually spawned a healthy imagination for storytelling. He continued to follow his natural passion through to university. Despite spending a lot of his time indoors writing, Edward continues to enjoy the outdoors. He is an avid tennis player, mountain biker, snowboarder, runner, and traveller.

Hello, thanks for reading. This blurb was meant to inform readers not to think too hard about the plot. Admittedly, there are some things that don't make sense. Perhaps in a sequel I can elaborate and tie up loose ends. As it remains, it's a bit confusing.
      
      The manuscript was written by some other Ben and left for the next Ben to discover. I tried to show this by having the Ben in the story writing the entire time. Then at the end, he leaves his manuscript to be discovered for the next Ben. 
      
      However, any clever person would ask the obvious question, how did the original Ben remember details of his childhood when the Ben in the story could not?
      
      Again, you'd be thinking too deeply. I tried to show that despite a connection to the past, it is not a strict connection. In other words, certain events must be the same and others do not adhere to this strictness. This idea is called fatalism. Perhaps in a previous version, Ben did remember those details, wrote them down, and lived an average life. Ben 2 discovered the manuscript and used it to his advantage and changed the course of history.  All subsequent Ben's would more or less make similar choices and have a similar life. But the Ben in our story challenged this. And the end, he steals the time travel device instead of leaving it for his successor.
I don't know if this is the place to ask you questions, but I'll go ahead and ask you. I'm writing a book, and I have everything planned out: complete outline, character profiles, and I have started writing. However, I have recently come up with an almost complete idea for another novel. Would you suggest finishing my first book before I start a second, or flesh out the second book a little more?
