Author has written 10 stories for Friendship, Historical, Love, Life, and Romance.
I'm moving into an entirely new phase of my life and the prospect of such change is daunting. I have two stories that I am attempting to write already, both reworkings of previous stories in some form or another. Under the Shadow of Swords is a different version of The Bride Snatching, with only the main catalyst being the same. A Rose Without A Thorn is a complete rewrite of my first ever fictionpress story by the same title. I struggle to write Shadow and I struggle even harder to write ARWAT. This is not the time to undertake a third story, but I'm going to do it anyway.

My newest story, The Paradise of Fools, is a story that has been developing in my mind in bits and pieces for about seven years now - thats before I even took up writing. Thus, it is very much a part of my soul, with many parts taken directly from my own experiences. Though it is in no way autobiographical, it is entirely inspired by my life so far - my personal experiences, my struggles, my friends, my enemies, my desires...you get the picture. I hope it will not disappoint.

I will make every attempt to continue updating each story as frequently as I can. But things are changing dramatically in my life and I don't know what the future holds, maybe more time to write, maybe less. Please don't get angry with me if I don't update frequently or I put something on a temporary hiatus. I really am trying as hard as I can. Also, if you review me, I'll review you - it may just take me some time.

With all that said, here a a few of my "favorites" just in case you are interested in where my inspirations come from.

Books/Plays: The Great Gatsby, Pride and Prejudice, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Handmaid's Tale, Hamlet.

Authors: Margaret Atwood, Tennessee Williams, Libba Bray, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austen, Phillipa Gregory.

Poets: John Milton, John Donne, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings

Books/Poems/Plays that wowed me but are not necessarily favorites: Paradise Lost, Heart of Darkness, Anna Karenina, A Doll's House, Life is a Dream, Cat on a Hit Tin Roof, Rozencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock", "The Ballad of Reading Gaol".
