Author Biography

When J.D. Selmser is not too busy 'saving the world' or 'being awesome' he enjoys chasing sunsets and waterfalls. OK maybe he does not save the world, but he is always dreaming big and chasing those dreams wherever they might lead him. He is a hopeless romantic who traveled 1100 kilometres every weekend just to spend less than two days with the woman he is in love with until she was able to move to be with him.

Monday through Friday, he's an IT ninja, defending "the people and their computers" against nasty viruses and hackers. Wielding his mouse like a set of flaming nun chucks, causing most unwanted applications to shrivel back in shame. By night and weekends he is the king of scary monsters and romance sitting at his computer writing about endless love and those that grab hold of it and never let go, no matter.

Like most writers his goal is to put the pictures that are in his mind on paper and invite his readers on a heartfelt journey between heaven and earth and watch the war between Demons, Angels and a multitude of other creatures. As much as his readers tell him that his characters shock them so do his readers shock him too. The most evil characters are the ones he hears are the most interesting and some of the ones he thinks will be the most beloved characters are the most hated.

In Stealing Destiny by J.D. Selmser, Destiny is the prize and both Zahir and Damien want her, but only one can have her and the other will live in hell… forever. When Damien kissed Destiny for the first time, he knew she was the one. He would do anything to make her his. But life had other plans for him. Just when he was ecstatic and running high on euphoria, he had an accident on a stormy night and now he is dead. As he struggles to get his life back, his knowledge of heaven, hell, angels and demons is tested and changed.

Zahir fell from the heavens and stole Damien’s body. In doing so, he also stole his Destiny. But Damien wants it back and he will do anything in his power to get it. He is given a choice - a deal from the Devil could not be good, but if it meant getting back his Destiny, how wrong could it be? This is a war, the one who wins gets Destiny and the loser will be condemned to hell. Who will it be?

J.D. Selmser did a good job with this novel and I liked it. Although the story was a little confusing at the beginning, I quickly fell into the mood of the novel and even enjoyed it. The love triangle was not what I expected, especially the ending. It felt unfinished for some reason which I hope will mean another novel will be released to give us more information!
