Author has written 1 story for Romance.
Eil was introduced to the wonderful world of fantasy by BBC's Narnia series, proceeded to read Harry Potter the year it was published and took the plunge at thirteen into epic fantasy with Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett crack her up every time - especially the latter with, quote, "the one horseman and the three pedestrians of the Apocalypse". The Sevenwaters and the Kushiel-trilogies by Juliet Marillier and Jacqueline respectively satisfies her secret penchant for a bit of romance mixed with quality writing. She was quite prejudiced against science fiction until she stumbled over Orson Scott Card's brilliant Ender's Game. Reading Tolkien and watching Lord of the Rings upsets her as she finds it hard to accept that Middle-Earth is not real.
Eil's favorite pairings include Joscelin Verreuil and Phèdre nó Delaunay, Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester, Liadan and Bran, Éomer and Lothíriel, Nynaeve al'Vere and Lan Mandragoran. And, if pressed, Buffy and Spike.
Eil is a huge fan of the stories and art of Don Rosa. Since young age she has followed the work of Lee Falk (The Phantom) and Hal Foster (Prince Valiant) and she hopes to be able to read both of these series in chronological order someday.
Eil has a broad taste in movies and gets excited over everything from animation to drama to documentaries. Her favorites include, but are not limited to, The Shop Around the Corner, Gone with the Wind, Sabrina, Singin' in the Rain, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, WALL-E, Shrek 1 and 2, District 9, LotR, The Departed.
She watches TV-series very sporadically and is currently addicted to none. Among the series she enjoyed the most in her childhood was MacGyver, The Adventures of Sinbad, Flipper and The Mark of Zorro. When she's in need of a comfort series, she usually turns to BBC's Pride and Prejudice or North and South.
Eil has written stories since 4th/5th grade. At one point her biggest ambition in life was to be an author (which naturally was not supported by her parents). In the past few years she's been writing mostly fanfiction for one of her own stories that she wrote when she was in high school. This story was never finished, but she put much work into its background history, languages, names and geography and it contains several of her favorite characters. To her great dismay, her teacher in high school (a published author) did not like her fantasy stories. To add insult to injury he was of the opinion that she wrote excellent poems and this was an indirect cause to a 5 years long writing block.
