Ed Marishta

Biography

Ed Marishta was born and raised in the small town of Gramsh, in Albania. He grew up with a very active imagination, which he would usually put to work creating stories and sharing them with others. As early as 10 years old, Ed tried to write his first piece, a fantasy story about a little boy with psychic powers, which he titled “The Adventures of Ren”. Sadly, that manuscript was lost and he never got to finish it, or any other work until many years later, when he picked up working again on several different projects.
He would say he does not consider himself a writer and will probably never make this his profession, but he loves telling stories.

‘The Endërland Chronicles: Book of Daniel’ is the first finished work he publishes, mostly for his own pleasure and as fulfilment of a promise made. The follow up "Book of Serena" is now also out, and he is currently working on the third and final book in 'The Endërland Chronicles' series, which will be titled "Book of Joshua".

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a fairly small town in Albania. Not having much in terms of material possessions made for an over-developed imagination that had to be put to use somehow; that and the fairy-tales my mother used to tell us every night before we went to sleep. It was my favorite time and if for whatever reason we would not get one, I would always make them up myself.
When did you first start writing?
I was only 10 when I started to write my first fantasy novel:) I remember very well what it was about, though the manuscript is long lost. Funnily enough, all my other projects since then and until now have not been fantasy.

Smashwords book reviews by Ed Marishta

  • Thy Will Be Done: Sexual Orientation in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth on Oct. 11, 2015

    This is a powerful book. Kevin is clearly inspired and led by the Holy Spirit and this is found not only in the message but in his honesty and boldness. You might not be able to follow, or otherwise agree with everything he writes, but the message of Christ is unmissable here and it's a message that needs to be spoken and heard louder in today's social climate. A must-read for all Christians and non-Christians alike in search of truth regarding sexuality issues.
