My name is Erik Kenneth Nelson. Born August 29th, 1987. I first became interested in the world of books when I was about seven years old. It was in my second grade class when my teacher introduced the class to the Goosebumps series by R.L Stine. At the time, I only saw reading a book as homework and not as a personal pleasure. However, when I saw the cover of the first book of the series, I was sold. From there on, I read all the Goosebumps books that I could lay my hands on until about the fifth grade when I lost interest in them. It wasn't until freshmen year of high school when my love for books would return. Ironically, my love for books returned when I was at the video store. When I had trouble finding a movie, my father suggested the movie "Carrie" with Sissy Spacek. When I noticed that it was based on a novel by Stephen King, I immediately checked out the book at the school library. After I was finished reading it, not only did my love for reading returned but I also received something else; my goal in life; to become a writer. With every author comes a different style on how to write and I had a real difficult time finding my style until the year twenty-ten. After I completed my first novel, I tried my hand at traditional publishing by sending query letters to agencies. Because of the large amount of competition, I met no success. I actually almost felt like giving up until I found out that R.L Stine was coming to town to promote his latest adult book; "Red Rain." Not only did I get a chance to meet my childhood idol, I also got my passion for writing back. I then remembered how I knew many people from Twitter who were self publishing and how my father told me about Smashwords after reading about it in Time Magazine. So here I am now; on Smashwords and ready for anything!

Unlawful Protection-- a short story on bullying, school shootings. What a horrific experience for children to endure. I recommend this book for parents everywhere; the psychological effects bullying has on children could be irreversible and lead to an emotional breakdown or better yet, meltdown. The author hit the bulls eye with this hot topic. I give it an easy 4 1/2 Stars.

Ian Johnson doesn’t see high school as an opportunity to get an education or to make friends. He sees it as an opportunity to get bullied and nothing else.
A treacherous, fictional tale of the tragedies happening in America today: bullying, ethics and gun control. This book will spark the debate, "Where is America headed?" and make you think about Second Amendment rights, tackling controversial issues and innocent lives caught in the middle of it all.
"It's not the guns, but the evil behind it." -Quote from Unlawful Protection
The author has a very unique writing style, with shocking twists and turns, where this story takes you and when it ends is anyone's guess.
