James Alley is a sophomore who has a special talent for writing space and science fiction stories.
He has been writing space fantasy, science fiction, and dystopian stories for five years and has had the opportunity to publish a few of his short stories.
This talent stemmed from a love for the sky, the stars, and space. When he was in fourth grade, his dad bought him a telescope, and he explains how “we looked at the stars and the moon and I was already fascinated by space.”
He would wonder, “What could be up there? Who knows? We don’t even know if there is a giant serpent at the bottom of the ocean because we don’t even know the entire ocean. We don’t even know Earth, and we are exploring space.”
He excitedly explained how there was so much more to learn about space that we don’t know. Taking his curiosity and excitement for space, he puts all of this energy into his thoughts. It is his escape from reality.
It is a way for me to get away from things. It is all away from work, school, chores, and other financial problems,” he explains.
Instead of watching interstellar movies, he writes down the ideas that he has floating up in his head. No other activity allows him to express himself like writing can.
He mentions that Victor Hugo is his favorite author.
He explains why saying, “he goes off on tangents a lot and that is something that I do a lot.” He has found an author that shares a similar writing style as he does.
His thoughts, or tangents, carry him to places that the average person has never thought of and he lets his creativity and his different thoughts carry him away, which translates into his writing.
His constant writing has allowed him to publish a few of his stories on a website. One of his favorite stories was about a kid from Russia during the Russian Civil War. He moved to Germany and learned German during the space exploration. He went into space and then went through a wormhole, and that is where the story takes you.
Overall, James Alley is a young writer with an exciting imagination.
