I never once thought that I would be a writer. Honestly, it was just a little inkling floating around in my head until one day I couldn't get that idea out of my head. And just like that I thought to myself, “I should write a book. Yeah… a book.” I never had the intention of publishing it either and it wouldn't have gone up without the persistence, support, and encouragement from an amazing group of people. It took three years of my life to finish this beast, and I am proud to finally have it finished for all to read.

I am a new writer and a frequent reader interested in both writing and reading about action and adventure and suspense with romance mixed between all the chaos. I love to play music, especially Jazz guitar in a Jazz Ensemble.

But as the audiobook production is coming along, I find many areas where I've used commas where it doesn't really need it, even with using it as a "breath mark". So you can expect a 7th edition to be the final edition with all the errors fixed and less commas while sticking to that style. :)(less)
David R. Torres Basically.... I just sit and stare at the screen for an hour or two before I call up one of my friends to take my mind off writing.

It's taken too long to finish this, but I think it's well worth it. It all started during my senior year of High School when I started writing Restricted Renegade. I had no idea of a title or where it was even heading. Now, on March 13 2018, I have f ...more

“You did all this,” I breathe heavy with awe. “You gave them the courage to take a stand.”
He shakes his head. “No. You did. You started all this,” he leans in, his lips hot and warm breath tickling against my ear. “You gave me the strength,” he sucks in a quick breathe and lets out a laughing exhale. “You gave me the strength to break free of all these ridiculous canons of public behavior.”
I smile, partly because I find his sophisticated speech funny, but mostly because he makes my heart bounce.
I don’t believe it was me who inspired all these people. It’s obvious it was David. But I did manage to inspire. I inspired David and that’s all it takes. It takes for just one person to make a stand, and another to be moved and inspired by that one brave act. Gravity takes care of the rest as the word spreads and everything falls into place.”
David R. Torres, Unrestricted Rising

“I felt comfortable within mystery’s shroud. It was all I knew. Being mysterious meant I had the advantage over others. But I didn’t want an advantage over Ashley. I knew her… and I wanted her to know me as well. Mystery was fascinating and all, but why bother looking at a shrouded painting when you could see it all under the full light? A painting is so much more beautiful when you can witness every one of its quirks, kinks, flaws, and accents. That’s how I wanted Ashley to see me. I didn’t want to be shrouded with only part of me being available for anyone anymore.”
David R. Torres, Crisis

“Perhaps we are better off living every moment—every action, idea, choice, and word—as if it were the very reason we were born. How much more beauty and meaning would you find in everyday things if that were your approach? Imagine a life in which each day is engaged with sacredness and honor, as if it were the most important in the world...”
