Author has written 18 stories for General, Haiku, Life, Fantasy, Nature, Fantasy, and Historical.
Hi,

I have not much to say other than the fact that it is my lifetime goal to become a published author.(God willing) I am mainly interested in fantasy, and within that genre, J.R.R. Tolkien is my chief interest. My writing has once been compared to his, but I dare not even dream to claim that comparsion myself. You shall have to see what you think. I have recently discovered that I very much enjoy writing haiku. I have one that took me 3 months to complete called "Paradisum" and I consider that a labour of love for a friend. Poetry in general, is what I love to write. I am working on doing more prose, however. I hope you enjoy what I write. I very much appreciate constructive criticism. Thank you, and namaarie.
