Hello world! My name is B.S. Meyers and before you ask, those are my initials, however derogatory they may seem. My real name is Benjamin Scott Meyers and I am seventeen years old. I’m a writer who spent two and a half years writing, editing and revising my first novel, The Greatest Story Never Told. However, after much consideration and conversing with my ‘editor’ I’ve decided that my first novel just wasn’t doing what I hoped to accomplish. I’ve shelved it and began a new novel, but I got lucky and I can recycle a lot of material from my old novel. Follow me on a journey through my mind as I reach ever closer to my goal of being published!
I started my first book on January 14, 2009 and it’s come a long way! My purpose for writing is to have fun and to show you what I believe. I believe that love is the most powerful thing in the Universe and I want to prove it to you. It is also my belief that any ordinary human being (or any other sentient life-form) can do great things.
My favorite authors include Douglas Adams, J.K. Rowling, J.R.R. Tolkien and John Green.
When I’m not at school, doing homework or writing, I like spending time with my family and friends, and listening to music (and maybe a bit of reading). I also spend a lot of time doing community service, such as raising money for the American Cancer Society and cooking dinner for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and programming robots and I never ever forget to have fun!
What Sparked the Fire?
Prior to beginning my first book, two events took place that I believe sparked my imagination. First of, on January 13, 2009, I began dating my first and my current girlfriend, Kaleena Rose Hill. Throughout my novels, you’ll see a lot of love that I believe all goes back to that day.
The second event that took place happened at school. My friend Nate and I were in the library looking around the internet. I was looking for a website I had found one day with a countdown to the end of the world and significant events that the creator of that website believed hinted toward the end of the world. I couldn’t find it, but I found another article that I found quite comical. I don’t know why I liked this article or how the concept of the end of the world on December 21, 2012 got engraved into my brain, but it set up the plot for my first book. You can see that website here, if you like: Is 2012 Just A Hoax?
With the fire alight there is not enough water in the world to put it out. I’m going to keep on writing as long as I have fingers!
