About the Book
Imaginings is a book I have had the utmost pleasure in writing and producing. Imaginings covers a variety of topics of all types for all types of people to enjoy and study (if you wish). The various topics that are discussed were actually created as coping mechanisms for me, personally as the writer, to get through my own struggles by understanding the perspectives of other people. That’s what Imaginings is—it’s based on other people’s perspectives. I believe we can all have our favourites; though I have no connection to the book in its entirety, I can emotionally connect and relate to many poems. Other people will as well, just with their own unique poem and taste. I have always had the idea (and this is where I got the name from) that Imaginings would surround people with different feelings, images, and ideas that only they can feel. That’s what I want, and that’s what Imaginings are. From the bottom of my heart, dear reader, I hope you find your special poem/s, and I would love for you to express your ideas. This is a message from me, Cameron. I hope you enjoy!
About the Author
My name is Cameron McNaughton and I am thirteen years old. My country of origin is Great Britain. Friends describe me as funny and caring. My favourite school subjects cover a large variety being: English, Mathematics, Science, Art, Religious Education, Citizenship, Drama, Geography, History and Physical Education! I write every single day that I can and tend to stare off into space. I adore Chess and Monopoly as they’re games I’ve grown up with; I’ve always been competitive. I, myself, enjoy reading poetry; my favourite poets (if I had to choose) would be William Wordsworth, John Keats, Wilfred Owen, William Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe. My most treasured reads are: The Famous Five by Enid Blighton, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Sherlock Holmes adventures by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Oliver by Charles Dickens, The BFG by Roald Dahl and The Black Cat by Edgar Allen Poe. There are so many more stories that I have enjoyed reading contently or with a full heart of passion but these, in particular, have a special place in my heart. I see myself a very eccentric and dramatic individual. I quite enjoy people’s company and take the greatest of pleasure in conversing of several wonders I have fortuned my knowledge to play. I have my very special - as I’d descibe them - dogs! A few Labradors and a Yorkshire Terrier, they be! To pass the time, more often than not, I’ll usually write but I also listen to music and create scenes in my head that enroll themselves into storylines. I always become the characters I birth to understand and manipulate them perfectly in my writing. I have not involved myself in many writing competitions and started writing the very first poem of Imaginings at ten. From then on I’ve written 2,000+ poems that I truly hope to implement into my next projects. Right now my comforts are starting to disappear as I start heading into my new projects.
