Melvin Ruizvargas was born and raised near the coasts of Puerto Rico. From those tropical shores is where he gets the inspiration to craft his much-loved ocean based teen stories. As a youth, he experienced what it was to live in the streets without any shelter waiting for him at night. Using those experiences as an inspiration, he infuses his tales of rebellious teenagers with attitude and examines the challenges they face on the daily basis.
From a solitary teen with a dream to a professional writer, Melvin has taken a circuitous path, first spending eight years in the military and studying online for his BFA for Creative Writing for Entertainment at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. At school, he honed his skills crafting short screenplays in different genres, but with a focus on young adult drama and adventure.
Melvin has expanded his creative outlets to include acting, performing as a background actor in the television series White Collar, in the feature film Runner Runner, and in a Domino's Pizza commercial.

Stemson Chi (20) & Katie Hope (20) were headed toward the E-Systems building. They found ae container. The 2 left the building & were chased by a grey computerized Gallimimus mechanical creature. The chase was on.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written sci-fi or paranormal short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could make a great movie, animated cartoon or mini TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)
