Author Spotlight - beats96

Proteus Trilogy: Book One: Warrior

A teen called 1498 is raised in a place called the Research Center. He's trained to fight, and as time goes on his skills are put through tests, each one more difficult than the last. As he progresses, he begins to wonder, what is all of this for? And why can't he get out?


1. Please tell the readers a bit about yourself.

Well, I hail from America, and I come from a good-sized family. There are ten kids in all, and I'm number five. I'm sixteen, and besides writing my books, I like to read, hang out with my various siblings, and fight vampire ninjas.

2. What types of books do you write?

As of right now, it's Teen Fiction/Action, but I'm thinking about branching off into Teen Urban Fantasy.

3. How many books have you written?

This is my first book, but I'm working on a couple others: the sequel to Warrior and the aforementioned Urban Fantasy book.

4. What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?

That's a hard one! Well, for 2014, there's The LEGO Movie. I'm really pumped about that. Bookwise, I'm looking forward to the next book in the Heroes of Olympus series, the Blood of Olympus.

5. What type of books do you enjoy reading?

Mostly Fantasy, such as the Inheritance Cycle, The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia and others like that. Any book by Steven James. I also enjoy the Art of War by Sun Tzu. If you haven't read that, go get a copy. It's amazing. Besides those, my number one favorite is the Bible. Even if you don't agree with everything in it, it's go some amazing things in it.

6. If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?

1. First off, Bear Grylls. The man can survive anywhere.
2. Second, a giant, plush baby cheetah.
3. Third, an Oceanic Airlines ticket. We'll have to go back, Kate. (LOST reference)

7. Are you considering a sequel?

Definitely! In fact, I'm writing it right now.

8. What inspired you to become a writer?

I really love reading, and as I would read, I would get ideas for stories. Eventually, I decided I wanted to write down the ideas. From that came my first book, a rather pathetic attempt which shall never see the light of day.


I move away from the grille, as she pulls it open and slides into the room after me. I The library here is similar, no, identical in layout to the one on Level 10. The only difference is the books. They have several I’ve never even heard of.

The library is empty. I glance at Lee. “Have you tried going outside the room?” She nods. “Yeah, but as soon as I crossed the door, an alarm of some kind went off, and I hid in the ducts. I haven’t tried since.”

I nod, thinking. Obviously, we’ve never had that problem on our levels. As I stand there thinking, I hear the door open. My eyes meet Lee’s, and we both decide the same thing. We hide behind bookshelves. It would take too long to get back inside the grille and put it back into place. I look around the corner of the bookshelf carefully.

Then I see who walked into the room.

It’s me.
