Author has written 30 stories for Action, Sci-Fi, Historical, Biography, Play, Love, War, Life, General, Romance, and Essay.
With the New Year I felt my profile needed changes, I don’t really do much on here anymore other than bug a few old friends and most of my attention has shifted to working on my novel. That said I am 21 and a University History student. My two passions are: the American Civil War (I am a Confederate Re-enactor) and 20th century Irish History.
For all my love of history, and I have gazed down the historian’s path, I am a writer at heart; my love of history seems there more and more to just spur my muses (although not always!) More than anything, I love a good story, the kind that is well-written enough to immerse you in the world that was crafted and you have no escape until it’s over. To me, that’s true literature, not themes and symbols like English teachers would have you believe.
Since I like a good story and a good review seems to be a rarity these days, I will review anything you ask, as long as you return it.
