After 23 years of being laid up in a tiny room bedridden, I woke up one day to sit down years2007 17 novels in a first year and a half.And learned how to use a computer for the first time and was book published that end of that same year.
When did you decide to become a writer? That first month of having my first computer. What was your first published work? The Child of the Shadows. What is your dream as a writer? One day to have many Novels published and have one become a movie.
What writing avenues are you currently pursuing?
A better use of language and Latin as I write in old English etymology middle English. Is there anything you wish you had been told earlier in your career? Spelling and the use of nouns and adverbs or treasured. What advice can you offer writers just breaking into a serious writing career? Use wise choices in the begining of your first chapters.
Use good synopsis that is to the point in less than fifty words. Anything else you want our readers to know?

Jack Sorenson, last series is about on Amazon.com.When Jenny, a sixteen-year-old witch, finds herself just beyond a door created by her caregiver, Master Santos the Great Wizard, she discovers a strange new world: Planet Earth.
Alone with her magic Eyeball Ring as a guide, she is questioned by the police; she navigates her way around a high school where the others think she's just a homeless girl; and eventually she befriends a baby raven who keeps her company as she searches for a way back into her familiar realm. Little does she know that her greatest enemy along the way, the evil wizard Cafzf, would reveal some disturbing secrets about Jenny's mysterious past... This novelette unfolds like a night garden:
Around each curve and corner, there is another unveiling of intrigue alongside playful and quirky dialogue between Jenny and her magic ring. A must-read for teen girls who connect to the world from the social fringes, or who love a good witchy story with a happy 2013.It was editors' picks for the Best Books of the Year in fiction...

    Another Book

    I know somepeople have been complaining about the cliffhanger ending. Just so you know there is another Alana Wetherbee book. It is called Spooks and Magic by Jack Sorenson. I think it is the continuation of the first book. You can download it for free in your nook shop.

    Amazing

    I loved the characters! And how Alana didnt have any friends at the beginning made her seem normal. It is like Harry Potter but that is why I like reading it. I would definetly recommend this book to anyone who likes magic and love stories.

    Luvkittens

    Y does everyone say it is a.poorly written book?It is not,it is really good and NOT choppy to me.I may only be on 5th grade but it is a great book for upper elementary and beyond.I do not suggest this book to little kids from 3 rd grade and under.Otherwise it is a wonderful book and you really should get it.It is and advanced to intermediate(whatever that means) reading level so if you are a good reader in 4th grade or up get thos book.I luv how in the beginning she gets picked.on by the school bullies because she is the new girl because that is what really happens in real life but mostly the rest of it is fiction.You will get hooked by the first few pages.

    Needs work

    First, this is clearly a book for teens, not adults. It is not very well written, but has some good ideas. It is rushed with little chatacter and story development. Made for a reader with a short attention span. If more time had been spent on one of the three parts of this story, and had been fleshed out it may have been good. The writer has a long way to go, but has decent ideas, just needs more experiance and some writing classes.

    By ami reader (fl) - See all my reviews
    This review is from: Alana Weatherbee (Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    This book was a very strong read! The editing was excellent and the story was so imaginative that I could see it side by side with J.K Rowling's series of Harry Potter. A page turner with real -fleshed out characters and very interesting tale. I love seeing the mind of a writer on the pages, especially when the mind is so imaginative and creative!

    Read it if you're bored

    The thought behind the story was a really good idea. Unfortunately it was just poorly written. Character development changed within pages rather than chapters. The story was choppy and hard to follow. Reasoning behind character actions were unclear or not explained at all. There was also WAY too much influence from Harry Potter but it clearly takes place in a parallel time/world but there are modern day references that shouldn't be included yet are present. I was sorely disappointed in the book and had to force myself to finish it. I will not read the remaining books.

    Boring

    It was confusing, and it was boring. It felt rushed. I never finished. It is a terrible Harry Potter wannabe. I was disapointed. :(

    Confusing, Choppy.

    It was choppy.
    It started on an interesting note, but after page 50 or so it got confusing. The plot was constantly changing, it gave the overall feeling that the author had various ideas about a story with the same setting and characters, but couldn't really decide which story to use and went with all of them- in the same book.
    This didn't happen throughout the whole thing, but there were certain scenes when I couldn't figure out what was happening/where the character was. For instance; there was a scene when the author said one character was on a tower high above everything else, and the other was walking on the ground below while avoiding bad guys- but they were talking to each other as if they were side by side. Also, before this mysterious conversation takes place, the one on the tower makes some referral to the one below that I've yet to understand.
    Relationship development is nonexistent, with characters jumping into positions seemingly of their own accord,(and without the authors consent) successfully changing the story line, again.
    Also, Alana's social standing changes with each new plot line- i.e, often.
    The worst part about this book though was the characters themselves:
    With no implied or otherwise mentioned mental growth the individual characters' personalities change from black to white to bright orange at the turn of a page, more often than I can count with the main character being the worst of the bunch.
    She starts out at the tender age of 15 with the adorable mental capacity of an eleven year old, (all of the characters follow her example throughout the book) making age 15 unbelievable but easily forgettable as their is nothing else to indicate their being older than they act, other than the authors first mention of the fact.
    Her anti-social behavior and seemingly dark past got my attention right off. Her actions against her classmates, while somewhat...drastic, also serve to create the overall image a potentially ground-breaking anti-heroin, the mere idea of a personality like hers existing in the fiction world sent shivers down my spine and immediately got me hooked; unfortunately, we said goodbye to that personality (and to her dark genius) almost immediately, and were instead introduced to an innocent, bullied, sweet little outcast girl who only wants a friend in the world. Of course, after the tournament, we said goodbye to her and her original social standing as well, and were introduced to her confusing opposite.
    I won't go on, but needless to say, I was disappointed.
    Even after everything, I can't bring myself to call this book bad; probably because I still can't bring myself to think of it as a book, it's more of an idea, idea in it's most raw form on the brink of evolving into a rough draft.
    But that is all, not bad, not good, not really anything. I'd be interested to read it in it's final form...somewhere way, way, way, down the creative line.
    Sincerely-
    Someone who would like to see more of (one) Alana, whoever she may be.

    Amazing book!!!

    I loved this book!!! The only complaint i have about it is that it went alittle too fast. The book needs to be longer and more detailed other than that the book is PERFECT!!! I hope the author will write more than two books though because it was really good! Loved it! Am reading the second book now! :)

    I can't believe i actually cried at the end!!!!

    When i first got this book, ii thought it was just a book trying to beat hp. But i got it anyway. It was weird because i didn't want to enjoy it but it was addicting. I did get pretty emotional at the end though because you really do feel like they were in real life.I mean i actually felt like it was me standing rigt next to them. It felt like they were actually in love. Not just those teenagers telling everyone that they were soulmtes kind of love. The literally to die for love. It was a very sad ending that i felt could have had more elaboration not just, "those were the last words he heard" THE END

    A lot of potential here...

    The story is great with a lot of potential. The characters need more time to develop they are too vague. A little more depth about each one would bring them to life a lot more. I think the author has wonderful writing potential, just a few tweaks here and there. Otherwise, I look forward to reading the next installment. To all the cooments that it's terrible, not so. It gets a bit diffucult to keep up from character swap to swap but readable and interesting. To the author: Keep up your hard work and efforts you only will get better the more you do.
