The Annals of Eliaril
  • The Thief Writing
  • This is a coming-of-age sort of story that surrounds Printus,
    a teenaged, orphan pick-pocket, who is caught up in an
    ancient prophecy to bring down Sanephes, a wicked
    necromancer who has been terrorizing the peoples of Eliaril
    for over a millennium.

    I have titles and plots (short and sweet like this one) for five more books in this series so far (with room for more), but Iím not ready to announce them publicly yet. Each story deals with a crucial moment in the history of the continent of Eliaril. (ďee-LIE-arr-illĒ) Itís very exciting. *wink wink*

from the author
When I was a little boy, I would ask my mom and dad to tell me stories. Sometimes, they would oblige for a little while, and make up some weird story about pumpkins and unicorns going to a market to buy some pencils or some such thing. However, as I got older, my need for stories didnít fade, but my expectations only increased. No longer would I be satisfied with random, silly stories that satisfy a child, but I needed something to capture and inspire my imagination in awe and excitement. I needed heroes and heroines who were willing to sacrifice for something that was worth the fight. My folks were not necessarily story-tellers or commonly in a mood to come up with a sound, exciting tale on the fly, at least, not to the extent that I demanded. So, I made up my own stories instead, using such mediums as Legos and action figures.

That need to experience new stories has never satiated: I can never get enough, whether through books and movies, or through interactive storytelling in video games. I can appreciate many genres of stories, whether fantasy or science fiction or modern mysteries or classic noirs. I constantly want to explore new worlds, meet new villains to defeat, and introduce new heroes to cheer on. I want to experience lifetimes of grit and beauty, strength and weakness, wisdom and regret, courage and cowardice; all of which can be attained through the art of storytelling.

My biggest inspiration to that point, bar none, is that of the Great Author, Jesus Christ, and how he wrote himself into His own story, and sacrificed himself for the characters that he created. Now, that may not be your thing, and thatís totally fine. You donít have to believe what I do, and I donít necessarily force that on you in my writing. However, I will not promise that you can walk away from one of my stories (or anybodyís stories, for that matter) without having a deeper realization of why you may believe what you believe about some things. My characters may live in a fictional world, but they face a lot of the same things we do, and have a lot of the same problems that we do. May the questions they ask bring us answers, and may the trials they face inspire us all to greatness.

So, that being said, why do I write? I write to entertain, to explore, to dream, to inspire, to reflect, to energize, to laugh, to cry, to cheer, to dread, to learn, to teach, to wonder- I write in order that together, as fellow travelers in this world, we may all learn what it means to live life to its fullest degree.

Explore well, my friends, and donít forget your walking stick. Itís a bumpy road we travel.

I am an absolute book nerd. My passion for words and ideas is inexhaustible and any free time that opens up is instantly swallowed in the pages. Since I was a child I have devoted my mind to books; and not just reading them.

While I can list other interests of mine, such as herbalism, permaculture, metaphysics, conspiracy theories, science, and food (yes food is an interest), everything I am fascinated with is rooted in the books I read from. Reading offers me an endless supply of inspiration and knowledge.
from the author
If reading can be so powerful, what does the writer hold? Crafting words is a shining dream of mine. My hopes are to stretch way out into the corners of human imagination, to the farthest places our consciousness can reach, and bring bits back. No genre is more equipped for this than science fiction/fantasy, which happens to be my favorite type. I write to take the visionary steps this field has offered us.

from the author
Storytelling has always been a major influence on my life. Ever since I was a boy I have always been fascinated by storytelling. Whether it be sitting around the table with family during the holidays sharing the craziest and most odd experiences we've endured, or curling up in bed with my favorite novels., telling tales is really what gives me a passion for life. The mere thought of creatively imagining my ideas onto paper or onto the computer screen blows me away. There is so much locked away, and I want to plug my brain into my computer and download it all!

from the author
Name's O'Brien. Terrel O'Brien. Born 1986 under the big scorpio in the sky. Raised in the peach state, don't care too much for peaches however, less they's baked into a cobbler with a scoop of homemade vanilla on top. Yeah I like food, what's it to ya? I like ta cook it too. Wipe that stupid look off ya face, buddy. Why suffer down burnt meatballs when I can bask in a roast duck? You come eat at my kitchen you'll try ta stay the night, trust me.

If not for the cookin' than maybe for the smooth music. I compose, told you that earlier, but many times I just kick back in my lounge chair, put my feet up, and chill ta some soul. What ya thought I was gonna say jazz? Heh. Sure I like jazz. Can't put any names to it.

What's that? TV? Ah well... Matlock. Columbo. Other pre-90's mystery thrillers. Fun stuff. Also like funny stuff. Like to laugh my socks off. Ain't a lot of that now-a-days. Laugh tracks everywhere. Movies? Sure I like a few old flicks. It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. Funny all the way through. Modern flicks? Nah. It's all the same now a days. Computer graphics and those special effects. That's all they care about now. The scripts are all copy and paste -- Oh, forgive the computer language. You could say my nerd shows through sometimes.

Got more ta say, but I'm out of time. I gots a ham waitin' on me in the kitchen ta come smother her. With honey maple glaze, that is.

from the author
I grew up an odd kin, into legos, unable to learn to read phonetically but this allowed me more time to stay inside my paracomic divide. Through special reading apart of other classmates and a speech pathologist, I entered "normal" grade school in 4th grade. I loved maps, wanted to explore the world and was really good at Oregon trail on a Apple II. I 6th grade I recieved a little boost of confidence. I reaceived the creative writing award for my middle school. By college I had created an alter ego (not an imaginary friend) that I'll enjoyed to live vicariously through, doing the things I dreamt rather than norms dertined by my family or university. I failed out of college once, returned, and eked by. Following a few career paths that did not pan out, I fell in love with computer systems and begin thriving in IT infrastructure. Now I write, design, and program.
