Revival/Return

Dear Reader,

If anyone is reading this now, I want you to know that I hope you read this first before you read anything else I’ve posted. A long time ago, I created this blog to share with you the stories ideas are possibly never going to be developed and the poems I’ve written for school. I’m sure if you checked the dates, you’ll see that I haven’t posted anything in a long time. Well, it’s hard to explain. I was dealing with school, the crazy events in my life, and developing more as a writer.

When it came to school, my life got a bit hard. I was going to a school called Silicon Valley Flex Academy. It was a charter school and it’s where students learn from an online system called K-12. I was happy there when I first got there. Then, it developed more into a special needs school. I wasn’t happy about that because most of my peers became rude and not nice. I did find kids who were nice, but they weren’t the majority. I was under a lot of stress. So much so that the school taught I was one of the poor behaved students. In actually, I wasn’t, I was just stressed out.

After sophomore year, I really didn’t want to go back to SVFlex. During the summer, to my surprise, I eventually learned that the school was going to be shut down. There were many reasons why, but mainly it was because it lost its charter. My parents did the best they could with finding a new school for me. They were able to find a Christian school. It’s not a overly religious school. It’s definitely a better school.

Since I have written some more and gotten use to my creative writing, I think it’s more professional than before. What I plan to do is post more poetry. It seems to be more popular here than the ideas themselves. I’m fine with that. Perhaps, I will post more stories ideas, but we’ll see. Please stay in touch if you want to read them for yourself.

Criss Cross

Criss Cross is a group of short stories where characters from Grimm Academy and the Shadow of London meet. I thought it would be very interesting if these two collided. Not all the characters are going to meet. Only the important characters will meet each other.
Grimm’s Shadow
A short story where adult versions of Cassie Swan, from Grimm Academy, and Juliet Dalca, from The Shadow of London, talk and help each other with their life problems. Which are marriages and jobs. In Los Angeles, California, U.S.
The Shade of Grimm
A short story where Merlin, from Grimm Academy, and Doctor St. Helen, from The Shadow of London, meet and battle an evil character. In Paris, France, before book 2 of Grimm Academy and events in Shadow of London trilogy.
The Other Magic
A short story where Lea Marchand, from Grimm Academy, meets Abe St. Helen. They meet in Carmel, California during a vampire attack. After events in the Grimm Academy books and the Shadow of London trilogy.

The Innocent Ones

I am trying something new. Everyone knows the stories of Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, and so on. Sadly, no one else knows any other fairy tales like the Wild Swans, or Snow White and Rose Red. So, I decided to write a fairy tale retelling of a Brothers Grimm tale called Brother and Sister. If you want to know about this tale, please go and do some research.

Plot:
A young girl, Jane Briggs, and her little brother runaway from their stepmother. They were safe staying at their uncle’s house. Suddenly, Jane goes missing and no one knows where she is or what happen to her. The detectives suspect that Jane’s stepmother is responsible. Did the wicked stepmother do it? Or is there more to the story than meets the eye?

Characters
Jane Briggs (age: 17)
A young girl who lived with her family and had a good life. Until she disappears without a single trace. We learn that she saw something brutal and runs away with her little brother. They soon find a safe haven at their uncle’s house. She disappears because of what she saw in her own home.
Andrew Briggs (age: 12)
Jane’s little brother who is a very sweet boy. He runs away with Jane from their stepmother. When Jane disappears, he joins search groups in hope of finding his sister. The story revolves around the love between Andrew and Jane. Andrew tries his best to solve the mystery.
Neil Herman
The uncle of Jane and Andrew who tries to keep them safe. When he is first introduced, he mistaken his nephew for a deer. He’s the first one to find out about Jane’s disappearance. He joins the search groups and believes that their stepmother is the prime suspect of Jane’s disappearance.
Clara Briggs (née. Smith)
The stepmother of Jane and Andrew Briggs. Clara is a mysterious lady who may be a wicked stepmother, or a framed suspect. She married into Jane’s family and gave them a good life. When Jane goes missing, Clara is suspected to be a serial killer and may have killed Jane.
Miles Johnston (age: 17)
Jane’s boyfriend who is in love with Jane. The couple has been dating for two months. Miles didn’t know that Jane ran away with her brother. When he learns of his girlfriend’s disappearance, he tries so hard to find his girlfriend. Miles then helps Andrew when he says that he’s on to something.

Setting:
Present Day
The story take place in the state of California. The mystery of the story is in a small town called Danville. The police department is called Danville Police Department.

The Innocent Ones will not be how you think it’ll go this fairy tale. The story will have twists and will focus on the love between the sister and brother.

The Secret Life of Lady May

This is based on an English mystery that took place in the Tudor Dynasty. When I first found out this mystery, I was intrigued. From this mystery, I’ve created a story idea that is historical fiction. It does, however, have some true facts about it. Not only is it a normal book, but there will be a sequel to it.

The books:
1. The Secret Life of Lady May
2. The Extraordinary World of Lady May

This first book is about Lady May Hart. In early Elizabethan era, a teenage girl unlocks the secrets of her own past. Lady May was adopted and raised by the House of Harts. She has little memory of her real family. May has been waiting a long time to meet her real father. Although, if she is to learn the truth about herself, she must go on a mission of self discovery. If Lady May discovers the truth, secrets will come to life and May will meet the queen of England, herself.
Queen Elizabeth will be featured in this two book series. In fact, the queen and Lady May are somehow connected. In the second book, that connection is pushed to the limit. After discovering her true and secret identity, Lady May enters a political world of kings, queens, and pirates. Elizabeth is trying not to get May into her affairs. May, however, wants to help the queen. She wants to understand how the world works. May must stand up for herself. Even though, many others believe that a woman mustn’t speak for herself. But, who is the powerful woman in the court? Queen Elizabeth or Lady May Hart?

If you wish to find out what the mystery is, you can go on google and look up Catherine Parr or Thomas Seymour. Thank you for letting me share this on my site.

The young girl in the first book of Grimm Academy has traveled to a different world. She has been transported to the Seven Kingdoms. The Seven Kingdoms are several separate kingdoms ruled by fairy tale characters, like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.

The Tudor Blade

During the rule of King Henry 8th, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of the king, has been accused of crimes she would never commit. She is sentenced to death by being beheaded.
In France, a young man named Philipe is one of best swordsman in France. Everything was going well for him. Until the day he was sent to England for a task.
From the orders of the English king, Philipe must kill Anne Boleyn at her execution. Henry 8th wants Philipe to behead his second wife! He doesn’t want to do it. But, Philipe has to do it. Despite him having a nervous breakdown and praying to God that he wouldn’t be sinned by this execution.

The story is based on the execution of Anne Boleyn. Philipe, however, is a fictional character. It appears that nobody knows who the executioner was. So, I decided to create this character and tell his side of the story.

Mercy

A historical fiction book that takes place in the Great Depression. A tale of love, forgiveness, and mercy.

In the Great Depression, every American was at the bottom. Michael Ross was lucky to be the new sheriff of Mercy, California. His biggest case yet is hunting down a serial killer. One day, Michael meets a young, teenage girl named Mary White. Mary has no home nor a family. Michael lets Mary stay at his home and they develop a father-and-daughter relationship. As the case goes darker and more serious, Michael learns that Mary has a dangerous secret. A secret that will test their bond of true love.

This love isn’t romantic, but it’s unique. The characters deal with the struggle with life in the worst time in American history. The relationship, however, is the best thing that’s ever happened to Mary and Michael. In the darkness time, a little light can burn very bright.
