I was born in Germany, on American soil during the fall of the Berlin wall. Prior to that, my mother didn't like to follow the rm and read me cutesy stories in the womb, , she read me Edgar Allen Poe and other such macabre tales, which explains where my love of the genre stems from. Aside from dabbling in pen works, I'm a beginner in the sport of parkour, enjoy regular exercise, and live for my daily eight cups of coffee. But why're you reading this? There's an engaging story in these pages! 15-year-old Joshua Springfield never knew a rmal life outside Cardack City. He never dreamed that there existed a place to call his home... and that his home had once cast him out. Now, war is imminent, blood has been spilled and they need him back to ensure victory. Will Joshua heed their call? Will he be able to overlook all of their torture and forgive? Will his faith hold true or will he lose himself to the darkness they subjected him to? Now begins a journey of the Lost and the Saved.
