Author has written 18 stories for Fantasy, Love, Nature, Politics, Life, Young Adult, Family, General, Humor, Song, and Friendship.

Not a lot to say about myself really. Rizu is Liz in Japanese - Liz is my real name - and I chose Japanese as Japan it's my favourite place in the entire world. The culture is just mind-blowingly amazing! I'm also learning Japanese 'cause it rocks my socks! I've been writing stories since I could write, and before that I did storyboards. Those stories have now progressed to books, screen plays, magazine articles and poems. I've had a few of my poems published on an international scale, but that doesn't mean I'm not unsure about my writing! I'm only seventeen at the present but my writing means more to me than anything else - including music, and that's saying something!

Favourites

Music: Generally, I'm a rock girl all the way, but I love all types of music; from screamo to classical. Some of my favourites artists are Guns n' Roses, ZZ Top, Aerosmith, Twisted Sister, Meatloaf, Disturbed, Linkin Park, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, The Fray, James Morrison, Gym Class Heroes, Usher, Bobby Valentino, Definital, Ash MC, and lets not forget Queen!

Books: What can I say? I love all books! Some of my favourites happen to include Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, Luke Rhinehart's The Dice Man, Natsuo Kirino's Out and Grotesque, Joseph Heller's Catch 22, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, James Joyce's Ulysses, Dan Brown's Angels and Demons - so much better than The Davinchi Code - everything ever written by Stephen King and Battle Royale but I can't for the life of me remember who it's written by!

Hobbies: Well writing is obviously my biggest hobby, I think everyone on this site has that in common, but I also love reading manga and watching anime - sounds kind of nerdy I know but it's awesome I swear! But that may just be due to my love of Japanese craziness and pure, unadulterated, uncensored violence ... Moving swiftly on, I also enjoy reading (again, obviously), drawing, hanging out with my mates, playing basketball, random wanderings on which I generally get lost and, surprisingly enough, cooking. I am well aware that I am the worst cook ever but still it's fun doing it, even if the kitched does get slighty scorched ...

People: My favourite person in the entire world is definitely my big brother Alex. He's supported me through so much and is always there for me when I need him. All in all he's just the best brother in the world - and I challenge you to find a better one out there! There's also my amazing mates; Dihl, Lil Sam, Dundee, Dysfunctional Dwarf, Alpha Dog, Kirsty, Dan, Lil Kirsty, Tia, Meenie, Emz ... I can't be bothered to list them all - far too many!!

Because I said so! by FidoDude reviews
