Author Bio

A working students in progress is what I would categorize myself of today. My writing is brought forth by myself; as I have gained the technique into gaining the knowledge I need from other resources and releasing them into my works from my own remembrance. I make sure to credit every source as they deserve, and they can be found at the bottom of every informative book I've written. Literature has always been a passion of mine, and I strive to better my works in the art.
