When I was four my father wrote of me, 'Adrian has so much love in his heart that he will always make it look easy'.
Upon reading this, I felt devastated. He may as well have written, ‘Adrian is a dodo, he has no ability and will come to nothing’ is what I felt. My father was an ambitious man, so I thought that he had written me off: I wouldn’t have a big job, I wouldn’t bring in big money, I wouldn’t succeed. However, I now know that my father’s impression of me was a huge compliment, and it was intended as such. To Love (and be loved) is the greatest achievement (and challenge) of all, (and this is particularly true in a society that almost exclusively places value on a person on th ... read more

Aeddan Howells was born in Bridgend, Glamorgan, in 1950 and spent his early years in Wales near what is now called the Heritage Coast. His mother was English and his father Welsh: she had a small family whilst he had a legion - nearly all of them living in an industrial township in Gwent – the fictionalised Trehaearn in a collection of short stories. Four generations of Aeddan's family were ironworkers who'd followed the fortunes of the industry down the valleys from its mountain origins in Blaenau Gwent.
Aeddan's family moved to North London to be near his mother's parents, but adolescence was measured by the welcome relief (just about every school holiday) of going back 'home' to Wales and the com ... read more

She should have known then that the world was full of hard knocks and called it a day. But she held on to her youthful optimism and carried it like heavy wheelless luggage through the maze of life.

I've written over 10 screenplays; some of which have been optioned. Hoping one will make it to the big screen some day.
After reading short stories from Derek Haas' (bad-ass, big time screenwriter) website, aptly called Popcorn Fiction, where he features short stories from writers, I decided to give it a go.
I came up the idea of The Unfinished from being a sci-fi fan, but also a die-hard TCM movie fan; (watch more b&w films from the 30's and 40's than current films). Love the idea of taking a character out of one world and implanting them in another... known as " ... read more

I was born in Montreal, Canada in the Summer of 1966. To the sheer frustration of many teachers throughout my life, my grades tended to directly reflect my interest in a given subject. Literature was the worst, with marks varying between A+ and D-, depending on the book being covered at the time.
A fan of Historical Fiction from an early age, I fell in love with Fantasy at the age of 16, when I was given a copy of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. I've since read it a dozen times. I followed that by reading most of the classics of Sci-Fi and Fantasy before venturing into the new breeds of work that were blossoming during the ’90s.

I was born in South Africa in 1979 and discovered my love for writing twenty-three years later. I find it very easy to create good characters, because each one of them is created using a part of me. As a child, it was hard settling down and making friends, because we moved around a lot. When I am not writing, I am enjoying fine pencil art - something I have been doing since I was seven years old, and spending time with my beautiful family.
