Author has written 16 stories for Fantasy, Life, Friendship, Sci-Fi, Romance, and Horror.
So I'm a college student majoring in computer science. I like to write during class because it helps me pay attention to the lectures (otherwise I often fall asleep). My focus in comp sci is networking. I like to do a lot of stuff. I try and give constructive criticism, and I try not to write mean reviews on fictionpress. I am only mean to authors I am reading on net galley that are published. I blog reviews for the books I read and I post those reviews on goodreads and amazon. My blog: http://avidreadergeek.wordpress.com/
Old profile because I am sentimental and don't like to delete stuff:
I've been on Fiction Press for a long time. I was introduced to fictionpress in 2003 by my sister Lirra, (if I remember the exact year correctly). I read stuff, but I could only post unsigned reviews because I refused to join until I was 13 which was the correct age for joining. I remember traditional stats (when they were the only type of stat). I remember when there was only 40 or 50 thousand fantasy stories. A lot of my stories on here are rough drafts, and are older stories. I update when I have a muse for a story, and if I don't get reviews, I loose my muse for these stories. I have other stories that I am working on. I might sometimes post parts of rough drafts, like whisper a wish my Hawk. I have a whole lot more that is a lot better written than what I have up here. The profile bellow I wrote when I was 13, which was forever ago. Periodically I update it. Oh, and my name is Francesca Huber, and if anyone tries to steal my work, I will be angry. I put my stories up for people to enjoy, not to steal. If you read dear diary, I based the weapons list of the list in my house. I enjoy shooting skeet with my 20 gauge shotgun (I've been getting pretty good), and I enjoy practicing shooting with my long bow. My arrows are carbon fiber and beautiful. I also like studying poisonous plants and the toxins they carry and the effects of the toxins.
I recently found out one of my friend is on here. Her name is Neko-1995.
Hi peoples. I live in the US and I am an army brat and have been to places like Korea. I love to write (even though I'm not that good).
I also ride horses. I have been riding horses for awhile. I am a HB (and proud of it) in the United States Pony Club. I do Eventing, Polocrosse, Foxhunting, and a little bit of driving. I also instruct horseback riding some.
I have 4 horses, a dog, and I had had a cat but she died so I hope you read the memorial I wrote for her. If you like my poetry please tell me and I will post more. Dog is dead too... and one of my horses died (I also wrote a memorial for her, she was very special to me and at the time I was allowing another girl learn to ride on her when she died)... But I got another one and my pony is back... so all in all total I still have 4... oh, and now i have another cat, she was a stray that lived near our house and one day decided to adopt us. :)
My sister is Lirra (username and I hope you read her stuff. She's good. And yes, I am the little sister. I am her primary reviewer. Meaning that I get to gloat when I find a mistake in her writing (but she finds so many more in mine, its not fair that my sister is majoring in professional fiction writing for one of her college majors...).
Please R&R. I will try to R&R back (If I don't PM me, I will realize my mistake and come).
I am 105 (in other words I don't give my age like I used to) now, but I am not the best of writers. Please, feel free to criticize(sorry for bad spelling ahead of time, I am not a spelling wizard). Criticism makes a good writer.
Favorite authors: Tamora Pierce, Mercades Lackey, Anne Mcaffery, Isabelle Carmody (she's Australian and writes awesome!, Obernewton Chronicles), Walter Farley, my sister, Tolkin (Lord of the Rings rocks! I have read it 11 times now!, but, beware, I only like Tolkien writing that style, I HATE Tolkien copiers(like those eragon stories)), Robin McKinley, Andre Norton, Modsitt, ect., ect. (the ect are spaces with names that I must remember) New author added: Donita K. Paul rocks(Dragonspell, DragonQuest, DragonKnight, DragonFire, and DragonLight)!! And so does Kristen Britain (Green Rider books)!!.
I also am a musician. I play Viola and guitar as main instruments. I also play violin, double bass (huge upright instrument), I am teaching myself piano, and I sing.
Many of you probably want to know about my username. Actually, I know you want to know because I know that humans are curious and so are you. My username is the name of a character in one of my stories that I am going to try and publish once I finish (whenever that happens to be). Basically, its one of my favorite characters and story ideas. All that I am going to say is that she is an orphan, a fighter, and a girl with wildfire power, but the eyes of tame fire, making her very misunderstood...
I love the computer, its so awesome! I love spell check. Don't you just love spell check? It saves my story from spelling! Have fun reading these lovely stories _.
Life without memory is my amazing story as I call it. Its my mind whisper. Read more to find out about a girl with strange memory blocks that don't seem to come from anything natural... Life without memory is a test. I am trying to see if I can write a first/second person narrative okay. I'll try two chapters. If it's not working tell me and I'll revert to first person only. I do love this story for what it will become though. PLEASE review!!
I am also working on a story that changes views between four friends. This story is called fight school. Every One rotation I am going to post as a "chapter". This story is being reworked. I like the plot idea, but I didn't like some of the other things within it. Also, I hate when authors write in this style and its making me not like the story as much. Like I said, I am reworking it and it might never have more added to it. (I am offering to continue it, except I will not change the beginning, so you would have to suffer through that) (Update 2011: UCK! If I can ever stand to look at this story again, it will be receiving a complete overhaul. I'm not sure I can salvage the beginning.)
The Hunters and the Healers is more of an easy read Fantasy, for teens who like a quick and cool Fantasy about magic and flying lizards(known as dragonets), and flying komodo dragons (know as dragons within the story). Enjoy! :) (I am offering to continue it, except I will not change the beginning, so you would have to suffer through that)
I have two poems dedicated to my cat and horse that died. I still haven't written one for my dog that died.
Cataract, one of my favorite stories. The girl within the memory field. The blind girl known as Cataract without cataracts. Read to find out more.
To Fight to Death, the story of rebellion. I like this story simply because it challenges me as an author to try out different style characters. Yes, I don't really like flipping characters in stories, but I find this one enjoyable simply because it challenges me to write on different personalities. The more characters the merrier (please keep it down to one character per a person though). I can not guarantee that your character will always appear in the next chapter, but I will try to use them as much as possible.
Whisper a Wish my Hawk is my pet story. I love it, but I have not put the most updated version up. I have not even finished the first chapter because I am writing this story in parts, not chapters. If you want to read more on it, contact me and I will send you more. (Update November 2011: I replaced the old chapter one with the new edited version. Part 1 still needs editing, but it is getting better thanks to the reviews I received.)
My Death is a new one that I started for fun. All my friends were writing vampire stories, so I decided to join with my own flavor. Welcome to the complex vampire society ruled by Death. They never call themselves vampires, and they never even mention it, but you will quickly see this in the story. My story is about a crazy girl learning about herself while taking revenge on a lot of people(Its the best way I can tell you what happens without giving away the story). There will be a lot of violence, and the descriptions of the violence will increase as the story goes along. This is a revenge story after all. There will also be some almost scenes.. This story is rated M.
Update November 2011: I've added two stories, The Last protector, and The Absence of Light. I am working on The Absence of Light most recently, and I really feel strongly about this story. I love my main character in this story. The story is slowly building up, and I promise that there will be romance and violence. The center of this story's plot is about romance. This story does include some mind manipulation. I love the mind as a subject, and the older I get, the more my stories seem to delve into the inerworkings of the complexity of the mind. I really hope you enjoy this story. :)
Those are my stories on here. One day I will publish others and then I will tell you about them here. Until then, enjoy the ones that I have up. :)
I know my stories aren't so good at the beginning, but they get better as I get better. I have been on this site for awhile now.
Thanks to those who have criticized my work. Even though I don't rework chapters I have written, I take it to heart and try to work it into my next chapters. Your suggestions are worked into some of the stories I have on my computer. If I finish a story. I will at that time go back to rework it. Thanks again. (For those reviewing Whisper A Wish My Hawk, I am working on rewriting and editing it. Thanks for your great suggestions!)
Also, I am looking for stories that dip into the mind and could be added to my community Mind Whisper. If you are interested in the stories found within my community, please either PM for consideration on a staff position or subscribe.
I am also looking for a beta reader to help with spelling and grammar for my stories. If you are interested feel free to contact me.
update 2013: I am putting my nanowrimo story up (or part of it). If I get some interest I might put all of it up, and then take it down once it is all up since I want to publish it.
