Author has written 58 stories for Religion, Life, War, Love, Politics, and Play.

Age: 17
I'm a writer of novels, short stories, and the occasional poem, and I do a lot of RPing, especially in the sci fi realm.

And let's just say I'm politically motivated ;)

Taking a creative writing class where 1-2 poems a week are now required, so you'll also be hearing a lot more from me. -- I have since finished with that class, and have therefore not been writing nearly as many poems.

I used to be a competitive figure skater, and I'm thinking of going back to that as soon as I possibly can :).

I'm an actress, and I was recently cast in a horror TV pilot (and series, assuming it is picked up :)). I also finally made a decision on what college to attend.

In The Beginning reviews
A poem inspired by a suggestion in my Creative Writing class. This is about what I consider the negative aspects of religion, its effects, and uses. Please note that I do NOT believe that religion's impact is 100% negative-it's bad points are merely the t

Tell Me Why? reviews
Just thinking about women who are abused by their boyfriends/husbands, either verbally or physically. Wondering why they put up with it when it causes them so much pain.

Time reviews
With a world such as ours, I believe less and less everyday in the possibility of a God. Maybe there is only time, untouched by any entity, and just eternally there.

Wrote this on the 4th of July. I didn't feel very festive, as I felt that we were celebrating a holiday of liberty, when I think we are killing democracy and liberty right now.

I got something I really wanted tonight, but instead of feeling happy, all I could feel was unhinged. It made it worse when I looked at something and found criticism of myself...but in general, I'm just feeling rather down again, and with no seemingly goo

Alluding to Superman/Clark Kent and his battle with Lex Luthor...comparing it to the battle inside of myself-how I something feel there's this vicious angry person, constantly being battled by the good person I want to be.

Judaism transcends religious beliefs-it is a cultural too. Even if I am not a monotheist, I still consider myself a Jew by heritage, for I feel a connection there.
