I'm not great at describing myself, but here's a bit about me that you should know:

- I have a new theory that that human adolescence doesn't end until you're 35.

- My opinions have changed as I've aged, but not the fact that I'm always right

- My mother tells me I'm hilarious and the best at everything, and I'm like 93% sure she's right

- I've literally never said never

- I'm as sincere as a Facebook 'Like'

- I'm known at the gym as the 'before picture'

- On a scale of 1 - 20, I'm a solid, solid 11

- I still don't understand Wattpad, but here I am...


But Seriously:

- I've been writing since November, 2014.

- I've finished a book called 'Gifted Souls - Shift', and am in the process of generating buzz around it while fruitlessly pitching it to agencies. The novel is about a 15-year-old boy who's able to flit in and out of bodies, and become someone else for a few hours at a time - any random person who catches his attention. Please give it a go, and any feedback (positive or negative) would be greatly appreciated!

- I'm stuck in my head thinking about stories 90% of the time. Only recently has it occurred to me that I should try to live out in the real world a bit more.

- My favourite books:
Dune
The Great Gatsby
Harry Potter
The White Tiger
The Hidden Garden
Rules of Civility
DeNiro's Game
An Abundance of Katherines

I will most likely follow back, unless something about your profile screams "I'm a serial 'follow-then-immediately-unfollow' er".

After an extended absence in pursuit of a pilgrimage of sorts, I am back!Chapter 28 - Part 1 is up. It's fairly dark and disturbing, not necessarily any more so than the chapter about Paul being a...

What's it like being someone else for a day? Ask fifteen-year-old Bowen Janssen. He'll tell you. In fact, he'll tell you what it's like being anyone you want to be. A celebrity? Easy. A police officer? No problem...
