Author has written 10 stories for Redwall, and Hunger Games.
I'm a 60-ish male, and a retired accountant. My first exposure to creative writing came in a Redwall survivor contest. Despite being the most hated character, (no lie), my hedgehog made it to the finale. That surprised me as each week I missed elimination by less than a 2% margin. I came in third. Ever since, my online handle has been that character - Cairn Destop.
After so many writing blunders in that contest, I applied myself to improving my skills. My lessons have all come via the school of hard knocks. Some of the imperial commandments from "them" irk me to no end. I write to entertain, not to be seen as an apostile to Saint Stephen King. (genuflect, genuflect, sing the hallelua chorus)
Brian Jaques once said his readers couldn't understand grey characters. That thought had me thinking of twisting the norm. Badgers are considered gods, so I had to "humanize" them. Hence, the origins of my vermin badger. Promise, in a later book her past shall be revealed. For now, just hints and clues. Close reading will give you some understanding of her lowly statu.
My reviews can either be focused entirely on the artistic, or the technical. When I do comment with technical, it's because I see something wrong. My comments are always intended as constructive and are based on my experiences. I'll not conform to the sacred commandments of Saint Stephen King. (genuflect, genuflect, sing the hallelua chorus). As always, edits are the perrogative of the author.
