My goal is to impact society with my writing and inspire youth to improve the world. Every November I make it my personal goal to write 50,000 words, bringing me 50,000 words closer to my dream of submitting one of my novels to an agent. Of course, just writing in November won’t help me finish my book, so I also try to write every day, as a way to keep my skills up. I hope that one day, with the completion of my novel, a publisher will read the message I am promoting and spread it around the world for people of all ages to read.
I believe that change is always coming, and that it’s the choices we make as a society that dictate whether humanity will be led to our advancement, or our extinction. Through the publishing of my books Insanity’s Wish, Dreaming of November, and Animal Dolls, I hope to impact people’s way of thinking to lead us to a brighter, more evolved future. I also hope to raise awareness to promote a better tomorrow, where all members of society can feel safe and protected wherever they may be. Currently, inequality is the biggest injustice that we must face, and it isn’t going to change if a good majority of people continue to sit back and watch it happen. Ignorance is contagious, and we aren’t going to find a cure unless we fight for it. My goal is to write the stories that finally open people’s eyes.
