Author has written 9 stories for Humor, Humor, Fantasy, Fantasy, General, Romance, Young Adult, and Supernatural.

Hello. I'm 16 and I live in California.

I love: reading books, writing, English, movies, theater (mostly watching, im not very good at it myself), music (rock and 80s!), animals, horseback riding, playing the piano, being among friends, laughing, daydreaming, silliness, creativity, originality, journals, kind people, videogames, stuffed animals,

I have a strong dislike for: Country music, small children, people who eat half of something and put it back in the fridge, zealots, homophobes, rasicts, sexists, people who are antisocial, self-destructive, drink or smoke because its "cool"

I am: quixotic, a dreamer, an optimist, very very cynical, cautious, curious, intellectual, unromantic, calm in very bad situations, afraid of scary movies, a lover of humor

My favorite:

Movies: The Labyrinth, The Neverending Story, The Prestige, all of the X-Men movies (basically any superhero movies), Pirates of the Caribbean movies, RENT, Chicago, Interview with the Vampire (better than the book, I thought). My favorite comedies are The Wedding Singer, Accepted, and Mean Girls. My favorite animated movies are any Miyazaki movies, but especially Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away, the Shrek movies and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.

Books: So many. I love nearly all books that I read. I love Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling, the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson, the "A Great and Terrible Beauty Series" by Libba Bray, the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer (I LOVE all books with vampires: name it, I've probably read it, even Dracula), The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause, all of the vampire books by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Lois Lowry books, anything by Edgar Allen Poe or Shel Silverstein, the Pet Shop of Horrors series by Matsuri Akino (the only manga I still enjoy), and of course, the books of my childhood: The Unicorn Chronicles by Bruce Coville, and the Unicorns of Balinor series by Mary Stanton (I was crazy for unicorns). One of my favorite stories ever (not technically a book) is The Changer of Lethalian under my favorites. It's SO good.

Music: The Rasmus (are my favorite band forever and ever), The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Lemon Demon, Panic! at the Disco, My Chemical Romance, Garbage, Aerosmith, Madonna (she's my idol- I love her), all sorts of 80s hits (Too shy-kajagoogoo, take on me- a-ha, voices carry -till tuesday, how soon is now- the smiths, you spin me round- dead or alive, sweet dreams- eurythmics, tainted love-soft cell, the list goes on)

Videogames: Legend of Zelda games (I'm going to marry Link- sad? yes.), Katamari games, Super Smash Bros. games ( I will kick your ass, don't worry), Midnight Club 3, any car racing games really.

TV: Criss Angel: Mindfreak. (i love him.), ROB AND BIG

animals: horses, tigers, three-toed sloths, manatees, beluga whales, okapis. I love animals.

food: anything and everything spicy. I love popsicles, pickles, pretzels (all p's!), french fries, i love american and mexican food, all kinds of sodas, or anything carbonated: im a carbonation whore. I don't eat seafood of any kind, and I don't like most vegetables.

people: all of my friends, people who have inspired me

So that's pretty much everything about me. I got bored and decided to fill it out with pointless info nobody will read.
