Meet Elskidor Xell

I was born in Texas as a menacing middle child with a strange imagination that I still don’t understand, but following it, led me to become the writer I am today. In my youth, I adventured with my little brother to places unknown. Sometimes we would go into the forest for miles trying to find a mysterious crystal to save the world from the demons waiting to get him, or finding a hidden enigma in the woods who fed us cookies like “Hansel and Gretel”. At the age of twelve, my family and I moved from Texas to Tennessee where, initially, I had a difficult time adjusting to life and meeting new friends. I spent a significant amount of time enjoying various fantasy shows on TV as any other kid would, ranging from Highlander to Sliders to X Men -The Animated Series, or movies such as Watership Down, The Dark Crystal or The Last Unicorn. I was drawn to read books including The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, or The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, anything with a hint of fantasy always piqued my interest. When I wasn’t watching TV, playing RPGs like Breath of Fire, Earthbound, Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger turned the wheels of my creativity, eventually leading me to write thousands of pages of fan-fiction devoted to the characters I cherished. My passion to create fantastical tales was inspired by the loss of my best friend, and cat, Uno. I always created stories for my friends and me to play out, but through his loss, I finally put this on paper. Since then, I found a fervor in creating stories and enchanted worlds and bending reality that continues to enthrall me; it is what drives me. Through my writing, I can experience things I adore. One day I am fighting through stress, and the next I am witnessing life through my characters and their much more entertaining world. I never know what will happen until it does, and I get to experience that adventure along with my readers.
