Author has written 2 stories for Historical, and Thriller.

Love (n.) - an intense feeling of deep affection.

Devotion (n.) - the act of giving oneself, completely.

Attachment (n.) - a feeling that binds one to a person, thing, cause, ideal.

I am in love with the written world. I am devoted to novels, plays, poetry... everything. I am attached to words.

I am not a "good" author, not by any means, but I pour myself into my work and I simply cannot stop.

Read what you will but do not expect greatness.


Some Personal Information:

Born: November 30, 2001

Favorite song(s) (Rather, the current song(s) I am obsessing over): "Smoke On The Water" by Deep Purple and "La Boheme" by Charles Aznavour

Current Favorite Novel: Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

Current Favorite Play: The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams

Name: I don't want to give out my name (too personal). You can either think of me as Sydney Carton (although he is far too noble to be compared to me) or simply R.J.N (not my real initials).


Thank you.

I really, really, really need a Beta... I really do. Finding a beta has never been successful so please, anyone will do!
