I'm 28 and live in Austria. That's in central Europe (no kangaroos!) and we speak German here. (So please excuse my English!)
On my personality: I'm shy! (That's an understatement.)
Hobbies: reading and riding
Pets: a horse
My Penname: In tribute to Forgotten Realms character Elaith Craulnobur and author Elaine Cunningham (A special round of applause to anyone who knows what the name's got to do with Elaith!)
My favorite characters: Elaith and Jarlaxle from Forgotten Realms (I'm not sure which one I like better.) and Draco Malfoy and Severus Snape from Harry Potter (I like Draco better.)
On writing: I make up stories in my head almost all the time. (Sometimes even in my sleep!) I remember doing this already when I was about five (don't know about before that). I rarely really write those stories though, but sometimes one insists.
