Yasir Hayat says: From an early age I developed a strange affinity for poetry after hearing Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem 'The Raven'. Immediately I tried writing my own, I was fascinated by words in rhyme and their meaning. My mind was set ablaze by ideas and thoughts, unfortunately I wasn't able to annunciate or project those ideas and thoughts in a manner synonymous with poetry. My love for the craft kept me writing along with the countless praises I got off friends who read my work As my studies progressed into college the desire to write took a different form. I began writing short stories in times of inactivity to pass the time. My poetry had become better but not to the point where I could be featured in a magazine or make any publicity from it. I continued writing poetry and expanding to stories. Once my studies progressed to university my writings had developed a mind of their own.For more information about Yasir go to amazon authorwww.amazon.co.uk/Yasir-Hayat
