What do you consider to be the highlight of your career so far?
My writing career is still very young, but it is already full of wonderful experiences. So far, the highlight of my career would be the fact that I had the opportunity to present my book at several local schools. Being able to discuss my passion for literacy with children and seeing their faces light up as I read from my book, it's an experience that I will never forget.
"Kaylen turned around just in time to dodge a ball of fire. The fireball was the size of an orange, yet Kaylen felt the intense heat on the side of his face as it went by. At least he was luckier than the once beautiful flowerbed behind him, where he had worked all day. It was completely destroyed, leaving nothing but black ash and smoke."
