16 Years Old Author Publishes First Book


North Charleston, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/18/2012 -- While most 16 year olds are worried about acne, driving and dating, Shahid Aziz is publishing his first book.

“One day I said "Why not?" and just sat, and began writing,” said Aziz.

Dragon Empire is a fantasy fiction, action adventure for young adults.

John and Grace are normal New York City kids who are suddenly transported to a world run by seven dragons. When the Dark Dragon rises to power, it is up to John and Grace to restore the world to a harmonious balance of peace.

“It took me a year, but I persevered and wrote something to be proud of,” Aziz continued.

The book has a large cast of characters, combat, discoveries, supernatural suspense and of course, lots of dragons. John and Grace have to navigate a complicated series of trials and tasks to fulfill the prophesies.

“It is more than just a story about restoring harmony and peace; it is also a story of growing up, transitioning to adulthood and learning about what is important to each other. After all, the two siblings have to work together to achieve goals in the book,” Aziz said.
