Adriel Chevalier

Biography

Adriel Jacques Chevalier descended from a French family that migrated to the Netherlands before immigrating to the United States.  His family's vocation centered around the jewelry and watchmaking business for generations.  However, Adriel was never adept with handling the delicate parts of tiny machinery.  Instead, he turned his interests to the software industry that was just becoming popular in his young, adult life.  He found that logic and problem solving better suited his skills, and he excelled in his field.

Adriel's elder sister had taught him to read and write at the age of three.  Due to boredom suffered from structured learning, he sought to educate himself from his youth.  In his adult life he spent decades studying ancient history and various writings, mostly centering around Christian and Judaic literature.  Some of his studies he opted to conduct in the pre-translated, original language to gain a clearer understanding.  

Always frustrated with the structure and politics of organized religion, he sought relationships according to the instruction of the Messiah, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst."  Adriel recognized that the Messiah's name was synonymous with his authority, which is Truth, and that any group larger than three brought annoying problems.

Adriel and his fellows departed from the mainstream teaching of the established religions and embarked on a journey that led them on a quest for intrinsic Truth. Through many enlightening revelations and miraculous experiences, Adriel came to recognize that much of what is taught today concerning the Creator and his anointed one is rubbish. He forsook the erroneous cliches, rhetoric and discrepancies of the religious culture and embraced Truth, which is available to any man anywhere at any time.

Although it was contrary to Adriel's belief system to share his findings in a rhetorical document, in his latter years he decided to envelop them into works of fiction to be enjoyed by others.  He has developed several stories with elements of actual experiences and enlightenment for others to enjoy and ponder.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Like many long distance runners, who either train or compete, I exclusively write these days rather than read. However, I enjoy the classics as well as contemporary works that cause me to think.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I don't market books. I offer my stories freely, and I hope that others will enjoy and contemplate different paradigms. One should never stop learning and take every opportunity to find the amazing aspects of life.
