Becoming an author... through the eyes of an eleven year old

My son, Logan, knew he wanted to be a writer from the moment he picked up a pencil. Heck… he knew he wanted to be a writer before I did. From the moment he gets homes from school, (and finishes his homework of course), he immediately sits down in front of the computer and writes for hours. One day he stopped me and asked if I would mind reading what he wrote. And of course, being a mom, I said sure! After reading ten pages, my mouth was left hanging open. I was amazed at how well and thought out his writing was. Now granted… he is eleven, so his stories are spin offs of other stories he has read, or even movies that he has seen. But I was surprised at the creativity he used in his writing.

This got Danielle and I to thinking… What does being an author mean to an eleven year? So we decided to interview him. After reading his answers and listening to him, we began to understand just how important this really was to him.

We hope you enjoy this interview. NOTE! We did not edit it in anyway, so any grammatical errors, misspellings and etc, have not been corrected. We wanted to deliver this interview to you guys raw and completely real from the eyes of an eleven year old.

And… we would so love comments… Logan will be reading them and responding. Help welcome this little man in to the wonderful of authors.

EXERPT FROM A STORY BY LOGAN:

Caleb felt weird about the field trip he was going to. He felt like he was going to perform show tunes in front of the whole class. This was Caleb’s first field trip. He was kicked out of four schools and never was long enough for a real field trip. His friend Michael was really impatient about the field trip. “When are we leaving to go.” Michael said. “It’s starting to get boring.” Michael thought school was the most boring thing he had ever been to except for the Dr. Phil show.

Then Caleb saw this girl with long blonde hair that stopped at the middle of her spine and bright blue eyes that sparkled at him. The girl came up to Caleb and asked him if this was Ms. April’s room. He told her yes this is Ms. April’s room. “My name is Annabeth.” She said. “I’m from Nashville.” Michael asked Caleb who that was. Caleb told him “She’s Annabeth.”

Michael’s chin dropped like its been in a battle field. Caleb pushed Michael’s chin back up and Caleb said, “Are you trying to embarrass me.”

Introduction:

Since this our first blog post, we are going to start out by telling everyone a little bit about ourselves and our book, Flesh and Feathers. Danielle and I start this book on a whim. We both had a passion for writing, but kept it to ourselves. By a chance one day, we expressed this passion to each and thus, Flesh and Feathers began. It has been an amazing journey and very hard work. Some days we wrote till our eyes bled and then other days we couldn’t think of a single thing. The great thing about this is that we found that we had the ability to do this and at the end of all that hard work, we had –what we thought – was an extremely good book. Yes… we probably broke every rule of writing that was ever written, but the story itself was truly astounding for us. We never once argued about the plot or the characters, which is amazing. We decided if neither one of us liked where the story was going, we would come up with something we both loved. I do thank God every day that he led us to each other. And if this is as good as it gets, I’m good to go!

Flesh and Feathers blub.

Waitress Azaleigh Carlton’s life was simple. That is, until she meets Kale and Gage – two very different and charming men. One she loves and the other she can’t live without. She soon finds out that the people closest to her are hiding a secret, one that will change her life forever. And now, someone or something is trying to kill her. As chaos unfolds, she learns of a world where good and evil are in constant battle – with both sides winning and losing equally. What does one do when hell won’t let you win and evil just won’t die?

Excerpt from Flesh and Feathers:

“Go to hell!” I shouted as I began walking hard steps down the alley that would lead to the city sidewalk.
“Azaleigh!” he shouted, grabbing my arm and spinning me around to face him.
My only reaction was to slap him hard across his face. The loud sound of my hand making contact with his cheek shocked me, but I was too angry to care. “No! You don’t understand! You don’t ever get to touch me again!”

I shrugged harshly out of his grip. Just then, a heavy gust blew, ruffling my hair and blinding me as I turned to walk away, followed by a loud thud. Taking a step forward, I brushed my hair from my face, but then stopped suddenly. A man wearing a white hooded cloak stood in front of me. At first I stopped because I was astonished by what he was wearing, but as I studied him, I noticed the slender sword-like object that he gradually pulled from his side. My body began to tremble with fear.

Check out Flesh and Feathers on Amazon:
