Author has written 47 stories for Nature, Love, Life, Family, Friendship, General, Work, Haiku, Song, Humor, Romance, and General.
NOTE: You can also find me on fanfiction.net under the usual penname. If you're into Harry Potter, you might like my stories. I have a strange addiction. My poetry can be found at deviantART (still as IrishIleana) as well, and it's framed by some of my fun visual arts projects.
A little bit about me:
Usually in my own little world. Otherwise, I live in a tiny town in Southwestern Ontario.
Sweeney Todd, I Capture the Castle, and Legally Blonde.
Favourite TV Shows:
House, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, The Office, Corner Gas, Ugly Betty, and Friends. I actually don't watch much else.
Favourite Radio Shows:
I used to listen to Tucker and Taz religiously. Now I just don't listen to the radio all that much. Because Regina Spektor is never on it.
Sarra Manning, Terry McGarry, J.K. Rowling, Gregory MacGuire, Jodi Picoult, and all the people who sent postcards to PostSecret.
Books I'm Currently Reading:
In between books right now while I await some new Picoult books from a friend in Texas.
Anything and everything. I live and breathe music.
Favorite Songs (or songs that I could listen to forever on a deserted island):
Braille - Regina Spektor
Reviews - please leave them.
Honestly, I can always do with a review. Whether you liked it or hated it, I would love to hear your thoughts on what I write. Reviews make an author feel better inside.
I, IrishIleana, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.
I have joined the review revolution.
Return the favour!
For all the authors who leave reviews on my stories/poetry, I will pay them back through their own reviews. I don't mean it as a bribe or anything; I just want to say thanks. You're the ones who keep me writing!
I, IrishIleana, do solemnly swear to review a chapter of any reviewer's story or poem, regardless of . . . well, anything.
I have joined the other review revolution.
