I’m a Young Adult fantasy author with a debut novel, Progeny of Gods: Vertuém Destiny, coming.
This book is very special to me, because I’ve been writing it since I was 11 years old, based off a game I used to play outside when I was even younger.
It was inspired by all the stories that fascinated me at the time, like Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts, and The Legend of Zelda.
At 8 years old, I saw my yard as a magical kingdom, where trees grew seven miles tall, and every day was a struggle against the Darkness to keep the kingdom safe and green.
Then, at 11, I saw myself too old to play such make-believe anymore. But I didn’t want to give up the childhood innocence it made me feel. So I decided to begin writing my stories down. And 14 years later, here I am.
At the forefront of a new, strange magic we call destiny, unveiling before me.
Progeny of Gods: Vertuém Destiny is the story of a boy finding his own way through the world, navigating through the conflicting teachings of his parents, in search of truth. But his world is very different from our own, spotted with tree-cities, where airships are made of bark instead of steel, and there’s a aura of lore and wonder everywhere you look. It is the perfect blend of the fantastic and futuristic, seen through the eyes of an young boy, born with immense pressure on his young shoulders. With its visual storytelling and intricate fantasy plotting, Progeny of Gods: Vertuém Destiny will captivate young adult and adult readers looking for an epic adventure.
