My name is Arabella K. Federico and I am an inspiring SYFY Fantasy Y.A. author who is currently writing book one of three in an epic, romantic, good troupes-for-days series called The Mark of Creation. I am so passionate about this pursuit I have created this website to share this journey with you all! Aside from my novels, I want to write a blog that puts you at the center, writing about things you want to read. For instance, a blog about how to make you a better writer. A hilarious yet serious & to-the-point book reviews that tell you weather or not a book is worth your time or not.
Writing a book is hard work, but I feel so strongly about this endeavor & I cannot wait to get to know you all through my journey into publication & beyond!
I have been writing ever since I can remember, I still have raggedy old spiral notebooks filled with Lord of the Rings fan-fiction & a Spider-man spin-off that occupied my mind for hours on end. I have had the idea for “The Mark of Chaos and Creation” in my head for almost a decade, & as slow as a turtle I developed the story itself along with all the characters that I have grown to love. My day job includes beings a licensed hair and makeup artist, & I work for a major cosmetics company. I’m so blessed that my job allows me the time to write & follow this dream of mine. Therefore, I always seem to come right back to it. I can’t let it go, so I might as well make it happen.
My official writing accolades are…small-but mighty. For free, you can read my most recent novelette, “The Isle of Darkness” by subscribing to my newsletter. What I do have is my lifelong passion for writing. I didn’t know how to write a novel when I actually sat down to write it. I was so lost and confused that I had to face the fact that I had no idea what the hell I was doing. You can be a great writer with a fantastic voice and have no clue how to write a decent story. Why? Because storytelling is a CRAFT. It’s a formula that has been done, properly and improperly, since humans first came to understand language. It is something you learn, and that’s what I did. I took years out of my life and devoted them to learning this craft, and now I’m no longer wondering around in the dark, lost and confused. I know exactly where I’m going. Now I’m here to pay it forward and lead you through the forest, too. I ADORE teaching, and the more I teach you-the more I learn. It’s a win-win for everyone involved, and I can only hope that I’m someone who can help you with learning how to bring your amazing story to life. Because the story that’s inside your head-it’s worthy of coming out into the world. You CAN get it out onto the page in a way that translates (sometimes even better) to what you’ve imagined. As long as you commit similarly as I did to learning what works. That formula is out there. Nobody is gatekeeping it from you. I believe you can learn how to write, just as I did, and one day be releasing your debut novel, just as I am.
