Chatting with Ayden Stone

henry blue t shirt“My name is Ayden Stone I am 32, the founder and M.D, or as our American cousins might say C.E.O. of ASMI. I have the good fortune to be featured in the first part of The Story of Us Trilogy written by Sydney Jamesson.

In ‘TouchStone for play,’ Elizabeth Parker narrates the story of our love affair; how it began and the sometimes turbulent nature of our love. She includes everything, omits nothing. Reveals a little too much at times … {smiles}

Beth and I met purely by accident some might say but, personally, I think it had more to do with the alignment of stars and planets. It was a fateful and fortuitous meeting. I was giving a speech to her pupils about careers in media and she was the meet and greet person. There was just something about her that touched a nerve. She had the bluest eyes, the colour of a summer sky; she seemed to be concealing her beauty behind unflattering clothes and glasses but I could see the beauty within. She had an aura {laughs} I know that sounds melodramatic but it’s the only way I can describe it.  It radiated from her like a halo. She had this adorable habit of biting her thumb nail when she was nervous. I made her nervous. She made me sweat.

When I left her it was with the feeling I couldn’t let her go; let her slip through my fingers like liquid gold. I sent her flowers and the poem Desire by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, hoping she would be moved by the sentiment; moved enough to meet me at the Apollo Theatre for a production of Romeo & Juliet two nights later.

She did.

From that moment on our fate was sealed. I saw how, in such a short time, she had blossomed. Gone were those prim & proper clothes, gone the unkempt hair, gone the glasses. She was beauty personified, inside and out.  At that very moment, I knew I would do or say anything to win her heart.

I did.

We spent an unforgettable night together. I made concessions for her inexperience and she conquered my arrogance with no more than a smile. She has many talents, some I’d rather not go into now. But … her biggest talent is her capacity for compassion; she is as intuitive as she is beautiful and as smart as hell. She keeps me on my toes. {laughs}

I’m not the easiest guy to be around, I know that. And there are aspects of my past I’m none too proud of but … for all that I’m so ready to share my life with Beth. I thought I had everything yet, I realise now I was unsatisfied. I’d had been looking for something, for someone. For her.

I thank my lucky stars she waited. She’ll tell you she was waiting to be found … if it was by me, remains to be seen.

She loves her music and it’s become a massive part of our relationship; often, when I can’t find the words, someone has put them to music and I go with that. Beth’s eclectic taste in music has become the soundtrack to her life. Now we’re creating our own. It’s The Story of Us in music and it’s a beautiful thing.

I don’t consider myself anyone’s hero … I’m a hard working guy who been around the block a couple of times but only now is learning to love. I’ll fuck up! But it won’t be for lack of trying, it will be because I don’t know any better. {smiles}

You’ll have to read ‘TouchStone for play’ to find out how I do …

Be good!

Ayden Stone

TouchStone for play by Sydney  JamessonThe Story of Us Trilogy begins …

Twenty seven year old English teacher Elizabeth Parker is waiting to be found. Like the secrets of her past, her beauty is hidden, concealed behind modest clothes and a gentle nature. Into her secluded world enter two powerful men.

Handsome playboy, Ayden Stone is flawless and as skilled in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. He has a taste for rare and beautiful things and he wants to taste her: he’ll do anything to make it happen.

Uninitiated in the art of seduction, Beth embarks upon a voyage of sexual awakening, allowing Ayden to steer her towards deep and dangerous waters, unaware of their fateful connection.    

From a distance former boxer, Dan Rizler, bides his time but never loses sight of the object of his desire: precious Miss Parker. His tormented soul reaches out to her with merciless hands. He must have her.

This is a modern fairy tale full of romantic moments, music and monstrous encounters. Elizabeth Parker is about to be found, but will she be bound by her destiny or by her demon …

So who’s Sydney Jamesson?

Sydneyjamesson Website3Seldom does a writer appear out of the mist, fully formed and equipped to introduce the world to their ‘perfect’ prose. More often than not it has taken years and, in the case of Sydney Jamesson, decades; to come to the point where she can say: “I’m ready. This is it, I’m done!”

Now is that time.

She has always scribbled things down; in her home is one enormous waste paper basket full of discarded phrases, opening lines and pieces of dialogue that have hit her like lightening in the middle of the night or whilst parked up at a set of traffic lights.

She has worked in Insurance, Fashion and in advertising as a Copywriter and Commercial Journalist and loved every minute of it. For the past 15 years she has been and English Teacher. But … for as long as she can remember she has lived with The Story of Us in her head.

The fact Elizabeth Parker is an English teacher should come as no surprise: novelists write, initially, about what they know … Yet, she confesses, Elizabeth is not her but rather that young, sensitive and naïve woman we all were or still are.

So that’s her, furiously typing away until the early hours, creating an epic tale that covers an 18 month period, taking three novels to unveil the intricacies of a 21st century fairy tale.

TouchStone for play is just the beginning …
