For my author name, I go under Brandon W. Smith. The "W" is deliberately added in since Brandon Smith is a common name. I have at least one published novel, and I currently have another novel in the works ("Mind Games"). I have twelve years of experience with writing. I have been writing ever since I was ten. I started out writing fanfiction pieces for my favorite cartoons before finally developing the story and characters for "Founders' Island" in middle school. It wasn't until my junior year of high school that I actually started writing the novel. I continue to write fanficton, but I do like to write stories involving my own characters. I hope that while here I can help others as well as continue to pursue my education in creative writing and become a better writer in the process.
