Aloha Friends and Writers!
I'm Hales, and I'm in the process of building a new account! I've been on Fictionpress for 12 years, under the name Fleur-de-lis-Evans! I am switching to this account, as I intend to post works in progress and want to be associated with a more professional name!
I have a Bachelor's in English-Literature and Minor in Creative Writing. Books and the written word are my passions! Future goals include starting the Ceurilean Anchor Publishing Company (my own company) and in the years before learning the ropes and being happily employed as a Content and/or Proof Editor.
I am beginning my adventure as a photographer and hobbyist Cosplayer. My other passions include Football (Soccer), collecting (stuffed animals, snow globes, books, bottles and cans and a sportswoman, occasionally playing tennis, running, swimming and biking. I also follow British/English television and enjoy several American Shows: So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, One Tree Hill, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 7th Heaven.
I am a sports lover and enjoy supporting the following teams:
Fire (Chicago Soccer) and Finland, England (European Football), The Bears (Chicago Football)l, Broncos (Colorado Football) and Longhorns (Texas Football), and The Blackhawks (Chicago Hockey) and Blues (St. Louis Hockey).
2. I am working on research for A Castle in the Sky - the first story I thought of for FictionPress. I intend to post it as the first story on this account.
