You can call me Perse. It's not my real name, but it's my online writing pseudonym. Since this is the place for stories, I'll tell you one about how I got that name. I was born in August, during the Perseid meteor showers. I took the first and last names for my pseudonym from those showers. Perseid Showers. But just Perse works for me.
I'm aiming to be a published author, though I don't actually have a degree in English. Or in anything, for that matter. I'm a college undergrad (yes, undergrad) working toward a degree in secondary education for general science. If my school had an astronomy specialty for secondary ed, that's what I'd do. Hence, my strong proclivity for the science fiction genre. For a while, I was minoring in English, but I recently changed that to astronomy.
Because I have dreams of being published, I won't post any major works here. FictionPress is for various short stories and poems I've accumulated over the years, which won't get read just sitting idle on my hard drive and certainly won't get published. Don't worry, they're still quality. I just don't have much interest in trying to get short stories or poems published. It takes more of a collection to get those into the market, and I honestly don't write that much. I'm more of a novelist, to be honest.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my work. Reviews are welcome so I know what to look out for in the future, but I probably won't change anything in my posted works since they're typically finished copies.
Thanks, as always, for reading!
