I am the author of the Aenya series, an interconnected epic fantasy adventure story which includes Ages of Aenya and The Princess of Aenya. From the time I was six years old, I have only wanted to do one thing, and that's to tell stories. For me, the visual and literary arts go hand in hand. So when I was nine, I dragged my father to DC Comics HQ in NYC to solicit my first superhero, Red Panther. By fourteen, I was sending out queries for my first novel, The Nomad. In high school, I discovered I was not quite as talented in drawing and painting, but I continued to hone my passion for the written word, until earning my BA in English Fiction at the University of South Florida. I continue to find inspiration in the visual arts, sometimes forming entire plots from a single image.
I am always on the lookout for dedicated artists to help bring Aenya to life. The pieces I commission are for promotional purposes, but more importantly, they inspires me. I look for artists who specialize in portraits, with an emphasis on the human form, and fantasy landscapes. Depending on the project, I am prepared to pay anywhere between $100 and $1500. Please e-mail me directly at email@example.com if interested. Serious inquiries only.
