Author has written 10 stories for Humor, and Essay.

Well, a lot has changed on since when I first joined up. Now we have two sites!!

I used to be a prolific writer in the 'Lists' section, but that was deleted a while I've been on hiatus.

I don't write too much these days, I focus creatively mainly on my artwork (and even that I have less and less time for these days)

I do have a huge penchant for satire, and I am fond of ranting :) So if I leave a long ranty review, take it as a compliment...your work obviously made me think.

I'm a University undergrad student, I'm doing a double major in History and Religious studies, and a minor in Classics.

I'm very interested in theology and the changing face of religion. I find my studies provide a wealth of information about my religious interests. I am a passionate advocate of the study of history, as I think that "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it".
