Hello all! My name is Helmy Kusuma and I would like to call myself an almost-full-time writer. Since I haven't been listed in any bestseller's list, it is best for me to also do some other things.
I have just passed my pre-initiation test along with my friends, Drake and Nylaa. I do feel that the last chapter of the test has been greatly exaggerated. Although transmutation is not my best subject in class, turning rock into gold is not that hard, right? I think we are going to pass the initiation test just fine and get to work inside the council. Council? It doesn't seem right…Ah yes! Sorry, that's not me; it's a draft for 'Inverta' series ( next year, I promised ).
I used to work in IT ( for a decade, that is ), and at the end of the good decade I decided to change vocation and became a writer. You could glimpse some of this fictionalized experience in my first romance novella, 'Mementoes of Mai'. My second romance novella is not available, yet, in English ( don't bother to wait, I don't even know whether I want to translate it ).
In between writing those novellas, I ventured to collaborate with fellow indie authors to create an anthology of flash fiction; it's called 'A Flash of Inspiration'. I also wrote a thriller short story, 'There Is Hope', about a post-nucleo-calypse world. Some friends suggested me to expand the universe, and I think I will do that after 'Inverta'. Or maybe I will clash the universes together. Who knows what ideas might drop inside my already hectic head.
Friend me on goodreads, facebook and twitter. Oh, don't forget to put a nice little dot on my map by going to www.helmykusuma.com.
See you there!

The night began to cast its dark veil upon everything, and even clouds agreed to hide the moon, but I waited there, patiently. Like a lioness I stayed mute, unmoved to the unnerved blackness. I vowed to catch my prey tonight. I had reviewed and re-reviewed the tactics. There's absolutely no way it could escape; I could almost feel its limbs crushed under my grasps.
"John, what are you doing there? It's past your play time, come on inside."
I hesitated for a moment, but then went inside. I guessed it could live another day.
Lapping the milk, I flick my tail and purr."
