Ian Cardenas


I'm a writer born and raised in Virginia. I experiment with poetry, post-modernist fiction, short-stories, parody, and have been known to dabble in some self-help works too. Whether you are interested in any of those genres or not, you should definitely buy all of my stuff anyway. I think purchasing my texts will be worth your while, as it will be mine. If I'm wrong, I apologize, but at least someone will be benefiting from the transaction--me. Kidding of course. I love you all and I hope my books are enjoyable as well as helpful to you all. Take care, stay classy, and support your local artists! Many thanks to all of my Brothers and Sisters who have taken the time to visit my profile on Smashwords, and I promise there will be more to come in the future! God bless you!
