I read, write, edit, work out, eat, repeat. After graduating with a B.A. in English and Philosophy from Queen's University in Canada, I decided to pursue my dreams as a writer. Everyone has a goal, mine was to publish my first book in my 20s. My debut novella, Aria, is a semi-autobiographical exploration of a young woman's psyche. It is fast, drenched in emotion and bleak. Aside from writing, I weight train three times a week in hopes of one day competing in the WBFF shows. I swim, paint, organize parties and read extensively in my free time. Soon to be published is a collection of short stories titled The Small Things.

Aaron Summers is a graduate of Florida State University. When not writing (or giving the finger to the blinking cursor on his word processor) he often spends his free time drinking alone, sowing disharmony between his overly neurotic Jack Russell Terrier and three-legged cat, trolling Mother Teresa fan forums, and discussing Simone de Beauvoir with cam-site girls. He lives in Sarasota, Florida, and his life's ambition is to rewrite the complete works of Jane Austen using nothing but emoticons.

ver since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: DAMIAN HAMZA TAYLOR From Poverty Prisoner to Literary Liege
Dr. Maya Angelou once said that “You may encounter many defeats but you must not be defeated. Please remember that your difficulties do not define you.

Hamza was born in Norfolk, Virginia and was raised by his grandmother in the historical Colonial Place neighborhood. In 1985, he moved to the adjacent yet lower income neighborhood with his mother, called Park Place. Although Colonial Place and Park Place is literally only separated by a street, the ... read more

I would first like to say I wrote this book as a very unpolished writer. I did not send it for editing and proof reading as I wanted to keep it in my own words and from my heart. I know many corrections from grammar and spelling could have been made and hope you will look beyond that and get a true understanding of the pain and heartbreak I went through and still do with my children. I am a simple person at this point of my life and choose not to redo and relive what I went through and wrote. Hope you enjoy reading the book and maybe you or someone you know can benefit by my mistakes and hardship.

Nací en Madrid el 2 de Julio de 1972.
Ya con siete años, en el colegio me obligaron a escribir un poema para presentarlo a un concurso y me negué; sino lo escribía, no tendría recreo. Cogí un lápiz y una hoja y lo escribí en menos de cinco minutos.
Me otorgaron el Segundo Premio de Poesía para niños escrita por niños de Gloria Fuertes y no me dieron el primero porque era muy pequeño, no creían que lo había escrito yo; la única que creyó en mí fue Gloria. Desde entonces, esa magia me envolvió y no he dejado de escribir.

Nací a principios de los 80, cuando las hombreras y los bigotes causaban furor.
Pronto me di cuenta de que el mundo es tan grande como pequeño, tan justo como injusto, y tan vibrante como decepcionante.
Quizá por ello decidí licenciarme en periodismo. Tenía una visión del mundo demasiado cruda, tanto que me resultaba casi poética. Con el tiempo descubrí que necesitaba expresar cada canto de esperanza y cada llanto de rabia.
Hace no mucho sentí la necesidad irremediable de viajar, y tuve la suerte de dar con un lugar fascinante, esa tierra hermana que es Latinoamérica, llena de buena gente de la que aprendí mucho más de lo que hubiera imaginado.
