The following is a list of old school stuff that I wrote as a wee lad between late elementary school and the end of high school. None of this material is anywhere near polished enough for publication, but many of the pieces gave rise to my current work. I include these stories on the site for the sake of novelty.
About: I wrote Crystalia in late elementary/early middle school.
Somehow, it ended up being 365 pages long and took up 2 five-subject
notebooks. Destalis is loosely based
Princess Alura Sager must rebuild her planet and track down her missing brother amidst constant threats from the evil Prince Lutar of Vetrex.
Beyond Cloud Nine (Original)
About: I wrote the original prologue and chapter one of Beyond Cloud Nine in
creative writing class in high school. My literary skills definitely improved from
earlier works such as Crystalia and Bear Wars.
I was rather proud of myself for coming up with the title. It has a duel meaning. "On cloud nine" is the feeling of euphoria that fighter pilots sometimes experience during flight. There were also nine planets in the solar system prior to 2006. So, Beyond Cloud Nine means both beyond that feeling and beyond our planetary system.
Brooke Davis is a hotheaded female fighter pilot who can't stay out of trouble.
About: I wrote this sci-fi comedy in middle school. Don't be fooled
by the name. The story has nothing to do with Star Wars. Bear Wars
is the basis for my planned series of short stories, Bears in Space.
Rozz, Rezz, Razz, and Ranz are the only space fighters capable of stopping the evil Boss Bear from conquering the galaxy.
Fight Back the Stars
About: I thought I had lost this story, but I found the old floppy disks buried
in a box in the basement. I wrote FBTS story back in late middle school/early high
Kena Shang is one of the most skilled martial artists on her world. One night after a tournament, she discovers that her adversary doesn't share her planetary heritage.
About: I created this four-book, eight-part comic series in early high school.
My fascination with Manga led me to draw in the Japanese Anime style.
Arista Cevash watches the alien ruler of her planet murder her mother at a young age. Eight years later, she stumbles upon the perfect means of revenge.
