Why I write the way I do.

Language is an intrinsic part of who we are and what has, for good or evil, happened to us.-Alice Walker

What Alice Walker said had a profound effect on why I do not write stories where all is happily ever after. Where the characters endures no trials and tribulations. I do not write stories where the saints or good people are perfect. Nor nothing bad ever happens to them. To me that is not realistic, that’s idealistic. Much bad happened to saints in the past and still do. To me, fictional doesn’t have to mean wholly unrealistic.

-A. White.

About unholypursuit

A. White, an award winning former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Terrific blog! Keep up the beneficial work. Thank you so much. Writers like myself are often reluctant to write certain things in fear of public backlash. I don’t mean anything that is harmful to anyone. I mean certain social issues like women rights. Immigrants’ rights and political issues. I know this isn’t a popular subject since writers are held under a keener eye than the politicians. Why? I wish I knew for we have no power to change laws that affect people lives. I think authors and writers are sort of like social scapegoats for people to blame things.

    Thanks with regard to supplying great articles. I love your rebellious style of writing. Your not conforming to the trends. That’s what make your books so interesting. I love Ana BuFaye. She’s totally kick ass. It’s refreshing to see a real heroine again. A pistol in one hand and a sword in the other. It doesn’t get badder than that. Like Stephen King’s Dark Tower series is to men and boys. Ana is women and girl’s “Roland.” In my humble opinion. She’s badder. So whatever your reason were for coming up with the character. This is one girl who is glad you did.
