About MR Fraser Smillie

I'd like to say I'm a normal every day person, but through my experience of meeting many people over my life, I have decided that no matter how normal someone seems, there will be something either mentally or physically strange about them. When I say that, I don't mean it as a bad thing, sometimes it can be as simple as being able to stick their tongue up their own nose. (Not Me). So basically, no one is normal. Some people are just better at acting it than others. As they say, it's always the quiet ones you want to watch! I don't have any religious beliefs, but do not question others, in fact I admire their ability to have that sort of faith, and am against any sort of racism or bigotry. There are no two people on this planet that are the same so how can we group millions of people by colour or beliefs! I have had a passion for writing my whole life, and have been writing mainly short stories for some time now. I tend to lean towards horror stories as I believe I can be quite creative with horror. The novel Fifteen however is a story that I have wanted to write since I was.....well....Sixteen. The age of Fifteen should really be the best of anyone's life. It is the last year of childhood, and the first year of adulthood. The last year before shit becomes serious. I laughed for most of that year, cried for some of it, and learned some important lessons in life. Writing Fifteen was so much fun I cried a few tears when it was finished. I couldn't believe how attached I had got to these four fictional boys I created. I found myself wanting to know more about them and what they did next. The result was that I started to write Eighteen to see what my mind made them do. I also enjoy writing short stories. Most of these are small ideas I come up with and wonder what I could do with them. You will find these will pop up from time to time and could be about pretty much anything.show more
