Whether you are a writer, a dancer, a singer, a craftsman, or even a builder – creating takes passion. Passion it what drives you to a better you; it gives you the stamina to finish. So before you begin on that project, ask yourself – why do this?
For me, I started writing just to get those distracting daydreams out of my head. But to finish a short story, a book, or even an entire series, I needed more motivation than that. The majority of my writing has an ‘eco’ theme to it, and thus, my title – Eco-Fantasy Author. Even in my short story in Forbidden Future, I had to throw in the backstory of solar energy vs. nuclear energy, and why both can be harmful to the environment.
My books are definitely just that – a good (hopefully great) story told. But I hope my readers take away more from them. My goal is to spur them into action, even if it is simple like recycling more, starting a garden, or buying earth-friendly products!

“The Mountains Haven’t”
by Kade Anderson
The people of the town of Dignity go about their daily lives, trying to scrape out a meager existence from the dirt and the dust of their land, never taking notice of the mountains that loom in the distance. To the others, the mountains are benign, as harmless as the grass their cows graze upon. To the town’s Watcher, Julia, the mountains hold the key to a far greater mystery.
