May the good guys win!

I will gladly admit it – I enjoy writing stories where the good guys win, the bad guys get their comeuppance, and a happy ending awaits.

Will every single story I write be this way? Probably not, but most will. But, you say, it’s not realistic! No it isn’t, and that’s the point. The world we live in is already filled with more than enough sadness and pain in everyday life, and I prefer to create stories which take my readers (and myself) away from it for a while.

Let’s face it – real life is often dull, discouraging, or even downright painful. So after another soul-devouring day at work, and a glance at world news, I want to relax and enjoy a great book where things unfold the way they should. Given a choice, I prefer something which makes me smile or laugh over realism any day.

I believe there is a place for real life books and sad stories, but I will leave those to authors who have the ability and courage to tell them.

Author: Alexander Elliott

Alexander grew up in the Midwest, was compelled to attended private school, and ended up with an eclectic career. He’s still trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. When not working to pay the bills, he loves to read, watch Star Trek, and laugh at Calvin and Hobbs cartoons. He also enjoys long baths, country music, nature photography, cooking and keeping up with his large family. Until recently, his writing included unpublished stories, music, poetry and drama scripts. Writing his first novel in 2016 changed everything, and he struggles to balance a boatload of ideas with very little time. His favorite genres include science fiction, fantasy, paranormal and romance. The author’s writing style is sometimes plot-driven, meaning his books may not rely heavily on detailed character development. Overall, he strives to create imaginative, upbeat stories with happy endings, making sure the bad guys get their comeuppance. He considers reading a chance to get away from it all and invites you to join him. If you enjoy Alexander’s work, he would love to hear from you.
