I like to write and I like to give reviews.
Well I love reading and writing. Fanfiction is fun but I prefer writing my own things but will write Fanfiction sometimes. If you wish for me to update more, please comment telling me to do so.
Writing has been a hobby of mine that I enjoy. I love the Fantasy genre and using my imagination. As much as I write, I typically never share my work with anyone, so I am giving this a try. I would love feedback and any comments that may improve my skills as a writer.
My first project is a series called Chaotic Nights. I have been working on it for many years. It started out as an rp between myself and a few friends and with their permission I edited and converted the story into a novel version. Enjoy!
Hya, I am S.D Stevens
Yorkshire lass born and bred! I live in a small village in West Yorkshire. That’s in the UK. I am in my forties and loving life. I am married; we have been together for around twenty years. We were childhood sweethearts, who fell apart in our teens and then around fifteen years later we bumped into each other and feel head over heels. I really should write our story we have had interesting lives and our story is bitter sweet.
In the past few years I have done a good bit of charity work for the MND association (Motor Neuron Disease). The cause is close to our hearts. My dad lost his fight with MND at the end of 2013 and I miss him dearly. However, he was a great dad and taught me to try and be the best example in life I could possibly be. One of the last conversations we had, we talked about my writing and he said how much he would love for me to get some of my work published.
I am a mother of six children, three boys and four girls. My oldest girls are married with children of their own. I have four granddaughters and three grandsons.
We have been blessed with an abundance of talent. The children and I are very musical, from singing to playing an assortment of instruments. My eldest daughter writes and edits for a few online magazines and also edits for me.
I was encouraged to start writing by my eldest daughter and my brother. She said I should start to write to get some of the stuff in my head out of there. And it works. I started writing about ten years ago. I have not had anything published as I thought it wasn’t good enough. I have had friends read some of my work and they loved it. My brother also writes and after having a few short stories published in a magazine in the 80's, he has since written books he will not share with the public. So I urge him to do as he told me.
I do read a lot; my favourite authors are Nicky Charles, Stephen King, James Herbert, Elizabeth Hunter, Belinda Boring, Robin Parish, Jan Gordon, S.C Stephens and Donna McDonald. There are more but too many to mention. I like supernatural, mystery, horror, romance and fantasy books.
I do not have any formal training; I left school many many years ago with no qualifications. It was in the days when jobs were relatively easy to come by. About ten years ago I did my GCSE English and got a B. It meant a lot to me to do it and hopefully I would like to add maths to that.
I follow a few independent authors who publish their works for free. I admire them and hope I can have a bit of the success they have had. I think there is much to be said about E-publishing. I do have my work on display on other websites. My goal is to publish my books using an online independent site. I don’t want to be tide down with a publisher and deadlines. I also want to write what I like and not what I am told.
I am religious; I am a Christian. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I won’t say any more about my religion other than, I don’t judge others on what they believe and would like the same respect.
That’s me – S.D Stevens
The Tales of Alhanassa
The work I have on Fiction Press and Spark A Tale, are about Alhanassa, it is a young magical world, where much of life’s mysteries are still to be discovered. However, their world is in turmoil as the once peaceful people are now split into two major nations, their magic, that was once strong, is divided as they fight against each other. The Tales of Alhanassa cover around two thousand years (sil’hna, in their language) of their history.
The stories start right at the beginning when Alhanassa is about to become populated. Bodelia’s Anguish explains that the Alhanassii people believe in a Most High Goddess that brings them life and is symbolised by the sun, and the goddesses of the three moons that govern the seasons (cycles), Ostar, Lithna and Imbhane. It explains why there is a darkness that is threatening to overshadow their world, and where it originates from.
The first trilogy, The Sisterhood Trilogy – Follows three sisters of a special order (The Clar’hen Order) whose mandate is to protect artefacts, prophecies and knowledge for all of people and not just one faction or nation. This trilogy tells of the darkness rising from the north that will threaten their world. It reveals their prophecies of how the darkness can be banished, and how their torn world can once again be made whole. The three, very different characters all follow the same overall story line, while each have their own tale to tell.
The second trilogy, covers the stories of the princess and prince that will reunite aspects of their world, but were the prophecies right? Or were they misread? In three epic stories, the reader will follow the coming of age of Princess Kohinora, a reluctant heir to the Throne of Leilan, her internal struggle with emotions and magic she is ill prepared for and the hard decisions of falling in love with a man she could never look to for a future heir to her kingdom. Read of the battle against the dark magic and against a queen who thinks that reuniting the people means her world domination.
An epic tale is about to begin……

So hi! I'm called Chris. I'm an aspiring writer probably like everyone else here. My love usually runs to the genres Fantasy and Si-Fi although I explore other genres as well.
Favorite Quotes: “You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'”
As a fantasy-sci-fi writer though, I have to say this: It seems to me that though I dwell much in my thoughts and in lands that live only in my dreams, that my own land on which I live has something that those lands of make believe can never even begin to touch, for my land has something that is so unimaginable that it can only happen in reality.
I'm a 20 year old girl living in a old farm house on top of a mountain in West Virginia. I write to pass the time and sometimes I get a little full of myself an post them here. I'm sorry in advance for the random long pauses of not doing anything like updating my current stories. I'm constantly working on something new, and if you like any of the ones I have up don't hesitate to tell me. Also criticism is greatly appreciated, I want to grow as a writer and any advice is welcomed.
I would like to one day become an author.
