Doppelgänger-We all have one.

I’m aware that most people think of a Doppelgänger in a sci-fi, alternative universe sort of way. An evil twin who does evil things and you get blamed for them. That’s a latter day definition. After researching the word I learned that isn’t the original meaning.

I don’t see it that way. I see it as a necessary part of ourselves needed for maneuvering everyday life. No one can be the same person in every single situation they encounter unless they encounters. My definition is it simply the different mechanism applied to the different roles we play in life.

To me a Doppelgänger is different from a Chameleon. A chameleon isn’t always required to change colors they do not it to be someone they aren’t. With a Doppelgänger. What you see is what you get. There’s no pretense.

The personal Doppelgänger is used by some of the most successful people in the world. Whenever they need to get something of great importance done. They pull out the Doppelgänger. It’s still that person but they summon up the courage they know their Doppelgänger has to get things done where as their normal everyday self would lose the guts to just do. Doppelgänger rarely procrastinate things to death. Whatever the outcome may be, so be it. Every one need to pull theirs out from time to time.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and later 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.
