I am a Christian.
Please no profanity in reviews to me. I don't swear in my stories, and I'd appreciate it if that same curtesy was returned.
NOTICE: I've had a fall-out with a co-author and am now being harassed and threatened by him on and off this site. But I'm not backing down, my stories will stay my stories and will progress as I see fit. So if anyone happens to see any of Blue-Eyes White Knight-BEWK's (or any of the other fake accounts he's made to harass me) spam, false accusations, or libel, remember it is just that. Because of this I've disabled anonymous reviews. Sorry about the inconvience.

About Me Randomness: Fiction, Fantasy, Fairy Tales, and Folklore are my favorite literary genres and Shoujo is my favorite anime/manga genre. I also have a love for mysteries and manga. My favorite books are LJ Smith's The Forbidden Game, but I also like many other series and authors including Agatha Christie, All Creatures Great and Small, American Girls, Animorphs, Arcadia, The Bible, Bill Myers, Bobbsey Twins, Boxcar Children, Caroline B Cooney, Charles Dickens, Chicken Soup for the Soul, The Chronicles of Narnia, Clue, Daughters of the Moon, David Eddings, Deltora Quest, Edgar Allen Poe, Elizabeth Bishop, The Enchanted Forest, Encyclopedia Brown, Enola Holmes, Fablehaven, Frank Peretti, Geoffrey Chaucer, Hans Christian Andersen, Harry Potter, The Hatchet, Help I'm Trapped in..., Imaginatorium Geographica, Indian in the Cupboard, Inkheart, Joan Lowery Nixon, The Journey West, L. Frank Baum, Left Behind, Lord of the Rings, Kathryn Reiss, Little House on the Prairie, Magic Attic Club, Mark Twain, McGurk Detectives, Meridian, Misfits Inc, My Side of the Mountain, Nancy Drew, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Nate the Great, Neil Gaiman, Patricia C Wrede, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, Ronald Dahl, Saddle Club, Septimus Heap, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Seven Sleepers, The Seventh Tower, Shannara, Sherlock Holmes, Sisters Grimm, Sojourn, Sorcery Hall trilogy, Unicorn Chronicles, A Walk Across America, William Shakespeare, The Witch Saga, and You Be The Jury as well as countless stand-alone novels. I love Seto Kaiba and no one loves him more than me.
Sadly, I've been stuck reading a lot of crappy books for my classes until recently, which kept me from the stuff that I really would enjoy reading. I've got a huge list of novels to start reading (as well as stories written by friends), including several dragonic series like The Inheritance Trilogy, Artemis Fowl, just about anything printed by Tor, Shakespeare's Completed Works, and a large list of anime/manga that can be seen on my FF.N bio. I want to marry Seto Kaiba.
I detest yaoi/yuri, hentai, extreme violence, profanity, god-moders, and canon-destroying Sues, Stus, and FanWorks as well as those that feel the need to attack my faith. Most modern novels (especially American modern novels) disgust me after having an awful class on them (classics all the way!). I dislike series/authors for those aforementioned reasons or general lack of plot: Christopher Pike, Deborah Chester, Dragon Slayers Academy, Everworld, John Updike, Kate Chopin, Mercedes Lackey, Philip Pullman, The Power, The Secret Texts, Toni Morrison, and Unicorns of Balinor--as well as just about anything I had to read for college. Did I mention I love Seto Kaiba?
