Writers are to make people think.

Writers are not here to conform. We are here to challenge. We’re not here to be comfortable—we’re here, really, to shake things up. That’s our job.

-Jeanette Winterson

Writers are to make people think. Present situations the public perhaps never gave full considerations. Or has been put it on the back burner of the psyche. A writer’s job is to bring it to the front and make one think.

Alienating readers isn’t something I do not believe any author set out to do. But unfortunately it happens. I have read many new authors’ works where they change the course of their work to appease one or two readers. It’s thoughtful of them to do so. But they put their work at risk. A lot of times the additions do not flow with the storyline.With  a new author changing can be very tempting if the voices are loud enough but it can also destroy your entire story.

Writing is something that take courage and lots of it. Yes, there will be some who punish you for not conforming. But you must be willing to believe in what you write and keep writing. For example: Some of the greatest masterpieces, like “The Divine Comedy, Paradise Lost, and the writings of Ethan Allan Poe,” no one believed in them when they were being written but these men stayed the course and didn’t give in to those who disagreed with them and gave the world truly masterpieces.

A. White is a long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly who 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," which should be finished this year. 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 came 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.
