Vanessa Kings

I was born on March 14th of 1985, in Rosario, Argentina. At the age of 10 I wrote my first fairy tale, I found writing comforting and distracting. After that day, I continued writing every time I felt the need of leaving realty behind. When I was about 12 years old I started putting some of my stories together and connecting them to create a novel. When I decided to really write my book, I translated them to English and added Melanie, who wasn't a character of the stories but it is the glue to connect them all. The main inspiration I had was the books and movies of my childhood and the need to bring that kind of stories back. As I say on my blog and twitter, my main purpose is to bring the fantasy back, the old fashioned fairy-tale kind of fantasy. My favorite book of all times is "Alice in Wonderland", by Lewis Carrol. I read it about 30 times and never get bored of it. I always loved the lack of logic on the story, the crazy characters and their clever conversations. A book that marked me for ever, was "The never ending story", by Michael Ende. I always dreamt of being pulled into one of my books and be the hero of the story, I read it countless times with the hope of hearing the voice of the Childlike Empress calling for my help. It never happened, but it was the main influence to my writing.
