This is the section where I'm supposed to write how I have always dreamed of writing books and that there are dozens of five star books out there with my name on them. Reality? I am brand new to writing, and worse, I'm not a creative writer...at least not yet! Most of the stuff that I have written is technical, cyber-related stuff. So, how in the world did I start down this path? The best way to sum it up is D. Rus and Vasiliy Mahenenka. These two Russian authors created books in a new genre called LitRPG, which falls under a more broad category called Gamelit. I devoured any and every book created by these two authors and quickly realized they were not alone in their endeavor. The series they created were translated from Russian to English, but it wasn't long before American authors started pushing their own series. Since starting with the Play to Live series (D.Rus), I've read hundreds of books and dozens of stories on Royal Road. I started posing questions and conversations about plots and book directions in various groups and forums. Eventually, I got the idea to start keeping track of my ideas and instead of giving them away, write my own story. Herein, is born a writer (or at least a wannabe writer)... not a writer to grab a paycheck, and not even for the sake of a job.

I am putting this story together purely for my enjoyment and it has been a fun ride so far. If you would like to join me on this adventure, I will try to make it as fun for you as it is for me. One of the ways in which I'm giving back to the community is attempting to expose some of the things I'm working on. I recently created a couple of blog posts that list a bunch of resources to other authors, Facebook pages, and websites where you can find out and learn more in the genre. I also exposed a character sheet that includes some formulas and ways to get started in creating your very own characters.

I'm not opposed to working with other enthusiasts and incorporating some of your ideas into the book! I've got a close group of friends I've been gaming with for a while now and one of the things I'm working doing is slipping their gamer tags into the book :) I want to have fun with this and I'm primarily doing this for enjoyment and everything else is secondary. Join me on this journey and we will make it a fun ride!

I am also keeping a website and blog here: dungeonquestonline.com.
