Author has written 2 stories for Historical.

Hey, hey, if you're reading this then you must be pretty bored...lol.
I'm from Boston, Ma., but born in Cambridge, just about one of the most Yankee cities in the country. After all, we did start all the trouble with the Brits, but then again, Bostonians have always been rebels, lol. Anyhow, onto the more interesting stuff.

Anyhow, I'm a history buff, in case you haven't noticed from the stories I have written in the past. I'm wicked into George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. Currently, I'm reading up on Alexander Hamilton, by Ron Chernow, and writing a fic about him as well, told through the eyes of a character I made up, Anneliese. I think it's ok, but it needs some improvement. I'll write more about that in a second.

For all those who have read and reviewed my other fic, Buildinga Mystery, do not worry! I haven't given up on it! I'm rewriting the story all over again. I read it over a while ago and noticed that it seems kind of rushed. So...I've rewritten it. But, until I'm done writing 'Anneliese', I don't think I am going to post. Until then, I'm leaving up the original, in case anyone cares enough to read it!

S.Renee: I wouldn't be surprised if you actually read this all, so I have to do a little shout out to you! I'm so glad you like my writing so much! I really appreciate having someone who thinks so much of my writing! It really is rare to have people like you who reviews everything that one writes! I'm happy to know you like my latest story, I have a picture of Alexander Hamilton from the Jeff Daniels movie 'The Crossing', if you're interested in knowing what my Alex would look like. Heis exactly how all original sources say he should look like, down to the hair, lol. If you would like to see it, just let me know! Your stories are wicked good, and I hope you keep writing, because you have a lot of potential!

Favorite movies:

Pirates of the Caribbean (Norrington rocks!!!!hehehehehe...)
The Crossing (Jeff Daniel as George Washington...just hilarious! Very well done movie, you should watch it!)

Glory (Robert Gould Shaw...what can I say? He's a fellow Bostonian, and an abolitionist! He rocks! Plus, the eery resemblance between Shaw and Matthew Broderick kinda scares me. It's wicked awesome neat and cool movie! I've done so many projects on him, that I feel like I know the guy personally!)

The Patriot (Jason Isaacs is all I have to say. That and Heath Ledger...)

Phantom of the Opera (Gerard Butler...ehehehehehehee...that's all I have to say. Emmy Rossum is such a beautiful singer!)

Anyhow, check out those movies. I'm sure you've seen most of them, but they rock anyhow! You should definitely see 'The Crossing', that has to be one of my all time faves, especially since you see Alex and George sharing screentime! Hamilton is the best, besides the fact that he lived out his life in New York...errrr...not big on that city or state, lol. I must say, seeing Hamilton in that movie inspired me to write the story I am now! Whoever that actor is that plays him, he definitely would be the guy I would cast in my movie if I were ever to make 'Anneliese' into one, lol. Not one of those hollywood handsome guys, but normal like you and me, you know?

Well, I'll write more when I feel like it...I'm getting bored now, and my laptop is burning my legs, plus it so hot over here...errrrrrr...
