J. Steven Young is an author of fantasy books based in magic, a subject that fascinates and drives his imagination. He thinks of himself as a dreamer and loves to let his imagination run wild. Writing fantasy stories has become a passion to let his creative side out and a welcome change from technical writing and IT management.
His first fantasy series, Chronicles of Aurderia, is an ancient involvement in mankind fantasy.
Hashtag Magic, an urban fantasy, takes place in modern times Chicago, and all magic is linked to a young man and his new #magic app.

He hopes his passion for day dreaming and love for adventure will allow his readers to escape from the real world if only for a short time.

But eventually, I reorder my thoughts and reorganize. I like to outline at least my major plot points, by chapter by chapter summary of Inciting incident, conflict, and resolution. But after today speaking with some international Award-winning best-selling authors on their approach, I am going to stop using a three-act separation in my outlines (unless I'm writing a screenplay).
