Ever since I discovered Roald Dahl, I wanted to be an author who would delight and move her readers through her stories and characters. I have also written my debut novel, "Of Demons and Deception."
The White Room
Unable to handle his anxious curiosity anymore, Lionel nervously peeked at his new friend. Austin was still sitting while staring at the white wall before him, his arms pinning his knees to his chest. He was chewing the nail on his thumb even though it was already a stub and he seemed to be trembling, despite the white room not being cold at all. And worst of all, Lionel was almost a hundred percent sure that Austin’s breathing had gotten even more erratic and shallow.
One Day When I Was a Senior
When coming up with ideas for this prompt, I thought of quite a few stories. Some were unfortunately too short to fit the word requirement, and some that I was afraid would make others embarrassed. Then I remembered something that I believe I only told a couple of people, one of whom was the Vice-Principal. So strap yourselves in, for congratulations you lucky reader, you are in for an interesting tale! Hopefully, I guess it would be up to you whether it is interesting or not.
My First Ever Piece
As a child, I remember starting a few stories only to end up not finishing them for whatever reason. It was only when I became an adult that I consistently began to end my stories. However, there is one story that I wrote from my childhood that I was able to finish. It was a very short story, a children’s book in all honesty, but a finished written piece nevertheless.
Reading "The Star of Kazan"
I don't remember how old I was when I was given a book written by Eva Ibbotson called The Star of Kazan, though I probably was in my preteen years. The one thing I know for sure is that as soon as I read the book, it quickly became my favorite. I reread it constantly, sometimes from beginning to end and other times just some favorite snippets. To this day I occasionally skim through it with a smile.
The Uglies Series Review
The Uglies is a young adult dystopian series with a total of four books. It has a satisfying ending without having the characters suddenly act out of character. It also has a love triangle that is not frustrating because, given the circumstances, it makes sense. I highly recommend reading it!

Where is the Gingerbread Man?Top Story - August 2023
In an effort not to groan into his notebook, Detective Grimm grunted instead. For a second he was afraid that the elderly lady in front of him would criticize him for being rude but thankfully, she didn’t say anything.
The First Flowers
Back in the day when the world was just starting to come alive, Mother Nature was quite busy. She made the sky, often decorated with clouds during the day and dotted with stars during the night. She made grass for animals to feed on and humans to walk on, as well as trees much taller than her small stature. She created the occasional storms and very recently she made a rainbow to spread light and joy to the earth after the rain.
The Show is Ending
This pilot starts with cartoon characters. Our main protagonist, Gina Beckett, is a quiet office worker who is very tired, both of her lonely home life and her fellow office workers, who think that quality comedy only consists of farts and gross-out humor. She is so tired that she barely notices everything breaking down around her, or the slight tremors she feels underneath her feet. Then one day, the worker sitting next to her computer, Angelo Samaras, takes one of his shoes off and shoves his foot in her face, asking her if it smells bad. The smell instantly knocks her out and gives her an out-of-body experience.
A Day in the '50s
The harsh ring of our alarm clock, set to 6:15 am, is what wakes me up today. My husband wakes up too, though he roughly flips over to his stomach to stop the ringing by smacking the button on the clock. When he doesn't move further, I know that this is one of those days where he decides to sleep in a little more. Which is fine, the alarm clock is mainly for me anyway.
