"If you've ever wondered where your dreams come from, you look around... this is where they're made."

Georges Méliès, as spoken in the movie "Hugo"

"The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved."

Victor Hugo

Welcome to the ELARoadshow's corner of Wattpad. Hopefully you'll find something to suit your taste.

Here on Wattpad I am slowly trying my hand at as many genres as possible. I also try to illustrate my work with my own drawings and photos. Currently, I have a mix of short stories, poetry, science fiction and fantasy available for you to sample.

The Grandmaster's Son:
My featured illustrated fantasy novel, which has also made its way onto the official Wattpad reading list for Medieval Magic and Mythology. "Grandmaster" is epic in scope, and while the first book has been completed, the series is ongoing. It follows a teenage boy and his friends as they battle corruption and evil, trying to make the fantasy realm of Ontavia a better place. I try to update once a week.

A science fiction novel, but also has ties to fantasy. It was the first work I published on Wattpad. I try to update this weekly, too.

Heavy Love:
A collection of short stories that all deal with love...sort of. "Heavy Love" has been included on the official Wattpad short story reading list called "Another Time, Another Place." Updates for "Heavy Love" are infrequent.

A collection of poetry mostly written a long time ago. Poetry was my first love, and my only traditionally published creative writing has been in this genre.

Pomegranate Seeds:
A collection of daily haiku being written for meditative purposes and updated daily during the summer months of 2016.

A collection of Flash Fiction I am currently writing to stretch and test my skills. I try to update this at least once a week.

I hope you find something you like!

Hi, everyone!  I just wanted to apologize if my activity this morning spammed your inboxes. I'm cleaning up "Grandmaster" and adding some graphics. I'm close to finishing the novel and wanted things...
