Loving every minute of my journey!
I began writing Elephant Cliff ten years ago and outlined it as a screenplay. As I continued tinkering, I changed it to a book. Almost finished!
The genre of Elephant Cliff is bildungsroman which literally translated means "education novel." This literary genre is known as a coming-of-age story.
Famous bildungsroman novels include:
