S.K. Ballinger


I am a father of four and work as a digital press operator and have for the past 13 years. I have owned two patents, but I was not able to finance them or further continue with them. I tried to start a business but quickly found it to be a bit more difficult than thought. As of 2014 I decided to give writing a shot. My first book was an autobiography. It was the most unprofessional written book ever imagined, but it did open up my love for writing and I since have taken it very seriously. I have always had a creative mind so it is nice to pick it apart and put it to better use. Knowing that I can self publish, I figured why not do something I enjoy. It is a lot of work nonetheless and I am constantly learning as I go. By the way, starting out in writing, I truly would not recommend beginning with an autobiography/memoir. I believe those are for the great ones who have already been well established etc. I only wrote mine because again, it was free to do and I was tired of telling stories over and over to random people, friends and family. I have since moved on with my writing and completed my first novel which is book one of three and is titled 'Stanley Swanson - Breed of a Werewolf' and actually have completed the second book titled 'Sebastian Swanson - Rise of the Lycan' . I have five character short novellas and a horror novel co-authored with TJ Weeks. I am currently working on the final novel of the "Swanson" trilogy and hope to have it completed by the end of 2017.
