I love to read and I love to write but of the two, my greater passion is writing. I aspire to write for a living and I'm working, albeit slowly, on completing my Bachelor's degree with a concentration in Creative Writing.

I'd love to do it just not sure I have enough creativity for that so my specific genre is still evolving although I've dabbled in poetry and some fiction and non-fiction prose. Now to write...

Fitz and Leni are investigating the strange happenings in their city. The authorities say it's a superbug but these young amateur sleuths team up to find that it's much more than that and that tragedy awaits.
I read Afterlife, the 2nd book in the Undermountain Series by Eric Edstrom in one day, and I must say I did so because I could not put it down. Suffice to say I was not at all disappointed. Our group of heroes must now confront the forces of evil they thought were left behind when they made it off the mountain in Book 1. Their journey takes them back to Undermountain and other unexpected places where extreme danger awaits. The evolution of Danny as the disinclined savior of mankind as well as the race of Bigfoots is an impressive one. Danny's loyalty, love and devotion to his friends and especially Breyona drive him to assume a leadership role and become that reluctant hero even as he struggles throughout the book with that decision. The book ends with Danny bearing many a battle scar but still fighting on because he know an even greater battle awaits. I'm highly anticipating Book 3 to see where our story concludes. I'll know I'll miss these characters when all is said and done.
