My name is Daniel Ranalli, and I have finally published my first book, Griffins of the Knighthood: the Beginning of the End. Reading the "Guardians of Ga'Hoole" started me down this path by making me want to create my own fantasy world. For over a decade, I toiled with the same idea, starting over every couple of years. In fact, I originally named the book "Warriors of the Raptors," with birds of prey, raptors, instead of griffins. Yet I could not picture raptors fighting with swords, in the air or on the ground, but then I saw a griffin in "Narnia" and realized that that would be perfect. This book though is far from my only idea. Ever since I was about fifteen years old or so, I have not been able to stop coming up with ideas. I think that by now, now that I am nineteen years old, I have about seventy ideas that I know are good, and about another thirty that I might or might not come back to. I plan to break into Hollywood, somehow. I have read plenty of online literature by inside experts, hopefully giving me the advantage, but most of all of I have an endless supply of ideas. That is probably the most important thing. Hopefully, in a couple of years, you will see me, Daniel Ranalli, making movies. Hopefully I will also be making this book, which I have spent twelve years of my life on, into a movie. And hopefully Kate Upton will be my girlfriend. Over the past twelve years, since the second grade, when I was a mere seven years old, I have worked tirelessly on my book, not to mention the stress and the fear it has put me through. The stress and the fear of everything from putting the words of individual sentence into the correct order, to blindly feeling my way through the entirety of the publishing process. In the end though, creating a book has taught me much, creating a book has matured me by forcing me to confront my fears - and surmount them. This book has taught me much, something that I never expected. I have never been very athletic, nor have I ever been the life of the party, but I have not, nor will I ever meet someone my age who can also say that they created something from their very mind, and sent it out for the entirety of the world to look upon and judge. That, I take great pride in.
