Hi! I know, it took me an awful long time to get a bio up here... I'm just not good at those things. Anyway, Manila keranu is not my real name, of course, it's just some lines from Urban Trad's Sanomi, because I like that song, a lot. Now to details usually found in bio's... I'm 21 years old at the moment, live in the Netherlands and study English, my great passion. Which is why I write mostly in english, not in dutch, my native language. Anyhow, I'm putting almost everything I write up here, cos its easy and I like my stories to be read by many people.
Talking about people who read my stories, thanks to everyone who has been giving reviews so far, and for the people that want more of Kiss of Blood: it will come. There's a whole series developing about those boys in my mind, I just have to write it down now.
Well, that's about everything I can think of at the moment, I hope everyone who stumbles across this little shelf enjoys the stories.
Cheers!
