Meet the Author

The son of a civil servant, Honoré de Balzac was born in 1799 in Tours, France. After attending boarding school in Vendôme, he gravitated to Paris where he worked as a legal clerk and a hack writer, using various pseudonyms, often in collaboration with other writers. Balzac turned exclusively to fiction at the age of thirty and went on to write a large number of novels and short stories set amid turbulent nineteenth-century France. He entitled his collective works The Human Comedy. Along with Victor Hugo and Dumas père and fils, Balzac was one of the pillars of French romantic literature. He died in 1850, shortly after his marriage to the Polish countess Evelina Hanska, his lover of eighteen years.

    The Worlds Biggest Liars 6.5

    The second day was kinda.. eh.. I don't know. But, this being a story, I've gotta spill... <br> Sam and I helped gather nuts and berries. Sam and I came back to our "camp" to eat them. It was okay. Afterwards, we packed up and walked to the mountain. When I saw it, I gulped. It was really big and extremely rocky. I wasn't a very good climber. Sam patted my shoulder and said, "Don't worry. Anybody can climb. I can help." <p> Im extremely sorry that this is really short, but I have to read Little Women for a book report. Sorry for the inconveinience!

    The Worlds Biggest Liars 4

    To Reflections: this Webster is not the one in the dictionary. :) <p> The last thing I would expect is a ninja-girl to make a hole in the wall and rescue me from that psycho. Well, I didn't expect that. It actually happened. Yep. Here's how that went: a laser created a circle in the wall. The circle fell out, and a ninja-girl jumed in. I hate to admit it, but she was kind of cute. Well things got pretty ugly when she tried to kick that psycho's behind. In the end, she untied me, and we fleed from the evil lair. She said, "That's my uncle. Always trying to rule the world. I'm Sam, by the way." We shook hands. That's sad how an uncle and a niece would fight each other. "My name is Webster." I said. Sam rolled her eyes. "You're not from Quenderville, are you?" I was, but I was definitely smarter than she thought. "I am, but I'm on a quest to find out how I can help the others speak Common Tongue." She smiled and removed her mask- thing. It revealed violet eyes that matched her brown hair perfectly. "How are your eyes violet?" I asked. "Oh, you know, we come from a weird family. Before my parents died, my mother had fuchia eyes. It's in our blood, I guess." I couldn't imagine how people had such a strange eye color. <p> Sam told me all about her past, and I asked if she could come on my quest. She said, "Sure. If we can make world peace or something, we MUST start with violence." She popped her fingers, and I gulped. I was a coward, and Sam would figure it out.

    The World's Biggest Liars 3

    I threw crackers at the guards. Those idiots grabbed the crackers and hungrily ate them. I passsed safely by. I checked my watch, and it was 3:00 am. How did time pass so quickly? <p> I had walked about 20 miles from my city, and I felt like I was going up in flames. I was really tired and my thighs were on fire. I sat down near a shady tree. I checked my watch, and it was 5:00 am. "20 miles in two hours.." I mumbled as I grabbed a cracker. I ate, and started to walk again. 30 minutes later, I found a small cave. I looked inside, and nothing was there. Except for the beautiful crystals. They coruscated in the dark, and had beautiful colors. I felt a rock in the cave, put my head on it as I reached for my blanket, and slept for about three hours. <p> I woke up, and I was in a small lab. A man dressed in nothing but black, glared at me with his orange eyes. I couldn't even see his face. "YOU HAVE BEEN TAKEN HERE. YOU ARE AN IDIOT, BECAUSE I KNEW YOU WOULD BE IN THAT CAVE." His voice-- that was the one who gave me my instructions the day before! Could they have lead me into a trap?! "M-my name is Webster," I squeaked. "I KNOW THAT, YOU BOZO!" It screamed at me. I guess he knew everything. I struggled to move. I was trapped!

    The Worlds Biggest Liars 2

    "DO AS I SAY," The voice said. I screamed in shock. "W-what do I do?" I said quietly. My whole body quaked when it said, "YOU WANT AN ANSWER TO YOUR STUPID QUESTION? I SUGGEST YOU LISTEN!" It yelled. I sat silently, motioning to it that I'd listen. "YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO FIND YOUR MEANING. YOU MUST TRAVEL A HUNDRED MILES EASTWARD TONIGHT. PACK YOUR THINGS, AND BRING THE PURPLE BOOK." The purple book? <p> I gulped. When the sun went down, that was when the guards came out. They would check every crook and nanny for people. Then- well, I don't even know what happens next! I searched my home, and I eventually found a purple book in the attic. It was really heavy, and really dusty. I slid it into my napsack, because carrying it could be an easy giveaway. In my napsack was a blanket, water, a box of crackers, and the purple book. I waited, and when I saw the slightest bit of sunset, I headed out. I felt as if the whole world was watching me. <p> I was hiding in a shrub. The guards seemed to be stupid, because all they were doing was going up and down. I then remembered my friend Kestin and how I would miss him.

    The Worlds Biggest Liars 1

    When I graduated from school (which was only five minutes), I went to a library to see if there was anything else I could know. They had nothing. Absolutely nothing. I mean, the books were blank. I was shocked. <p> I was a smart kid. I was eager to learn. Something besides, "My name is Webster." I wanted to know how things were created. How things were destroyed. My biggest questions were, "What about birthdays?" And, "Why can't we say anything?" In our little city, we didn't celebrate birthdays. They were pretty much outlawed. So it seemed like we were.. immortal? I still don't know. I went to school when I was five, so for the next eight years, I taught myself. I tried every sound I could. It worked, for a little while. That was because nobody could understand me. I was upset, and confused, because it seemed as if I never could understand THEM. <p> Here I was, standing outside. I was playing with a toy I made. Suddenly, a flash of light appeared, and a voice boomed at me.
