MY OTHER FILE ON FP: Broken Spiral (www.fictionpress.com/~brokenspiral)


Currently, I am interested in the following: historical fiction -- aka 18-19th century, Greek, Civil War, etc; I want to try out new things -- pirates! (I have a fantastic one nestling in my favorites right now. . .go read it!) -- horror -- everyday dramas (think The Office or other sitcoms) -- revamped fairy tales (sort of like S.J. Maas's Queen of Glass... but no one can outwrite her :P) -- any romance/action/mystery/whatever with a TWIST (I'm a cynical, jaded reader who tires of cliches or occasionally falls in love with them. . . so it's a toss up. Still, everyone can appreciate a good, original plot)

About Me:

Name: Chloe.
_Age: 18.
_Religious Affiliation: Atheist. I've been raised by two scientists, so I guess that's the way I go. I find myself very spiritual, however. Feel free to discuss philosophy with me.
_Currently Obsessing Over:The US presidential campaign, string cheese, cross country, college apps, AGH.
