A. White, an award winning former librarian, who is also a 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 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.

  1. Too often these conversations take on a very condescending tone of voice.

    It is not rude to walk away when someone is dissing you.

    The same thing is happening in literature and have been happening for centuries. The privilege decides what’s great literature and what’s not. In my opinion mostly what’s selected and raved over isn’t that great.

    • I agree Bernard, for so long the privileged were the only people who could read. As late as 1895 most of the public was not educated and had no chance of rising to a higher social status. That’s the point being made in Jude the Obscure. Main changes didn’t come about until after World War I

    I think it’s so rude to dictate the tone in how a person should say something. Just because you do like the way they express themselves doesn’t necessarily make it wrong or harmful. Sometimes the issue or event is pr was so traumatizing that the person do not realize they are loud and sounding aggressive.

    • No, it doesn’t justify being rude by dictating someone’s else manner of speaking. Someone expressing how they feel is not badgering or goading someone. Provoking someone is differing than not appreciating being tone policed.
