Ronel is a brand-spanking new indie author. She loves creating fantastical worlds set in the future, the mythical, and the horrific. Translate: She writes science-fiction, fantasy and horror novels.

Her life story is not particularly fascinating, but her love of technology, PC games and writing is. Beside writing, she spends her time slaying rendered baddies in the form of robots, gangsters and aliens - with any weapon that happens to be at hand.

Ronel has published her first science-fiction trilogy, the Corrupted SUN Script and is hard at work on her next sci-fi novel, The Seventh Glitch.

When she's not writing, she's gaming, and when she's not gaming she's either sleeping or eating, as these are prerequisites for a continued life on plane

Doing Something New

Part of any journey includes trying new things. My first three books took place during the slow extinction of mankind. My next two novels unfolded in a dystopian world similar to ‘1984.’ For my upcoming books, I’m doing something completely different and publishing an epic space fantasy trilogy that I describe as a combination of […]

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you
Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,
At least fifteen people in this world love you.
The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you
There are at least two people in this world that would die for you
You mean the world to someone.
Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.
When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.
Always remember the compliments you've received.
Forget the rude remarks.
So if you are a loving friend, send this to everyone on your list including the person that sent it to you.
Tonight, at midnight your true love will realize they like you.
Something goos will happen to you between 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life.
If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with relationship problems for the next ten years. Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes!!
Make someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! remember that your loved.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
