VBTC Pit Stop - Cesar's Fav Five

My Top Five Favourite Authors!

Number One > J. K. Rowling
Ok so who doesn't love the Harry Potter series, I will admit that it did take a while to get around to reading them, but once I did, it shot up there to one of my most favourite series. The films drew me into the books, but the book were so much more. What I love about Rowling’s writing is that it truly unique, and you get so engrossed with the characters because you have watched them grow up.

Number Two > G. Norman Lippert
Yes that’s right, as soon as I was done with the Harry Potter series, I was still wondering how the story would continue on. Then I came across the James Potter fan-fiction series. It continues the story on, introducing many new loveable characters, and best of all, it was free to download on Goodreads. Pity there is only three books completed yet. Lippert's writing is not unique as it follows similar style to the original series, but his ideas for plots and new characters are totally in his own style and I couldn't put the books down until they were done.

Number Three > M. J. Webb
Fast moving intense three part Young Adult Fantasy series. At first, I was wary with how his writing quickly moves from one dilemma to the next yet it totally works. The central characters reminded me a little of Lord of the Rings, which is never a bad thing. Its an epic series, hopefully the last book in the series will be out soon so that I can answer all those 'what next' questions.

Number Four > Tony Humphreys
Ok as far as self-help books go, I think this author is the best. Many years ago, one of her books changed my life, and now I use the books to help develop characters in my stories. They simply understand the true nature of the human mind.

Number Five > George R. R. Martin
Martin is an expert at making very long-winded-stories that somehow manage to prevent you from getting bored, its ironic but true. The writing is unpredictable, intense and carries a lot of depth and detail.

Do you like any of these authors too? Who's you're favorite?

This collection of 250 poems was written by Cesar during his late teens, and each piece of writing was originally intended to remain as a personal record of his journey with God. Yet the collection at some point became much more than mere thoughts about the world and God; they developed into poems, lyrics and poetry on a full range of subjects.
Then the writing stopped and the pages of thought and devotion were lost to time, gaining nothing but dust in an attic. That is where Cesar found them thirteen years later, and he chose to publish them as a testament to the influences which once surrounded his life, and as a dedication to God for his faithfulness.
The book is also dotted with hand drawn sketches which adds an additional level to the book.


Haunted shame, distant pain
Hidden deep, am I sane
Can I make them hands stop
Fade away into the shade
Softest of songs drift above
Peace inside, peace within
Mumblings made to story tell
Drive this home, hope you’re well
Flying away you look down
Turn those hands and see the dirt
Nothing washes, nothing cleans
Burying deep my drifted dreams
Build me a wall and make it strong
So I can fall, trip, trip and fall
Swimming no limbs, flying no wings
Drift here to see my drunken words
House washed away by my broken tears
Soul taken by the rising flood
To carry me home, twisted fate

About CesarCesar has a very experienced background in the spiritual world. He was brought up in a Christian family, but branched out from that base as he got older, seeking answers about the world around him, and the spiritual world around him. In his mid-twenties dramatic events occurred in his life which challenged his very existence, but he learned from these experienced and most of learned that how that life is not just in our own hands. Now Cesar is a firm believer that everyone has their own path to walk in life, and part of that walk is all about the choices that you make. Some people choose a good life and some a wicked life, but most of us live the life in the middle, influenced by the world around us and our own upbringing, Cesar understands that life is simply not black and white.
