Guten Tag!

About Me: I'm a senior in high school. I play clarinet and bari sax, and am also involved in Choir (altos ftw), Scholastic Bowl and Theatre (both acting and tech). I'm a major geek and love European history and astrophysics. I love reading fantasy as well as historical fiction, but I detest modern realistic fiction with a passion. I will attend University of Chicago next year with a major in the History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences of Science and Medicine. My goals in life are to marry my true love and to publish a book.

Favorite Authors: Anne McCaffrey, Jane Austen, Dumas, Tolkein, Eddings

Notes about my works:

The Tenth Task: A retelling of the myth of Eros and Psyche. I'm just starting it out, and I'm pretty enthusiastic about it! It's going to be along the same lines as the other myths I've done. Put on hold until Pomegranate Seeds is sorted out, but don't worry -- I will come back to it!

Pomegranate Seeds: A retelling of the myth of Pluto and Proserpina. The plot itself is mostly true to mythology, but I added depth and feeling and emotion. I'm in the process of ├╝ber revising it with help of a writers' group I'm in, and this project is taking up most of my creative juices, and I'll repost it once I've finished it.

The Golden Crown: (Finished, but I'm fixing it up) A retelling of the myth of Dionysus and Ariadne. Since little is actually said about what happened, I've taken some liberties with this one, but I'm happy with the outcome. Don't like the ending, so I'm fiddling with it. Suggestions welcome.

A God in Pursuit: (Finished) A short retelling of the myth of Apollo and Daphne. Just a little fun. :-)

Sweet Southern Comfort: Definitely my most ambitious piece. I'm really serious about this one; I'm doing my research and taking my time. Honestly, there's so much detail-work stuff to look up that I doubt I'll get anywhere with it until I have more resources and more time. So, for the time, being, this one's on hold.

Crimson: I've been beating myself in the head over it, because I'm stuck. I know where I'm going for a few more chapters, but then I don't know where to go after that. So unless I get some divine inspiration or a lot of reviews telling me to update, don't expect much on this one.

Another Note: I hate when you start reading something that's not finished and they just stop writing it. Grr. I can assure you that I intend to finish everything I start. I don't think my brain would let me do anything otherwise.
