Author has written 9 stories for Young Adult, General, Historical, Life, Nature, and Politics.

I am a fourteen year old homeschooled young lady. I live out in the country, with four younger sisters, and my parents in an old farmhouse. I am a Christian. "I am not ashamed of the gospel"...but I think I must also say I am not ashamed of the Truth and of the Law. There is right and wrong. There are wrong things people do. I am not legalistic, but believe in absolutes.

I have four hobbies: thinking, writing, reading, and playing the piano...in the order. Thinking is a strange hobby, but I indulge in it most of the time. Unless I am doing math (my least favorite subject) I am always thinking about interesting things.

My favorite books are: Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, Rebecca, by Daphne Du Maurier, all of Agatha Christie's mysteries, and The Unfinished Portrait by Mary Westmacott, the pen name of Agatha Christie

My favorite music is classical, I listen to it all the time. I like music that makes me cry...I like just about anything that makes me cry. People say I am a happy person, but I love to be sad too. My favorite songs are: Mozart's Requiem, Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, and any depressing songs.

My favorite movies are: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Wives and Daughters. I don't care for Hollywood type movies (although they did a good job on Sense and Sensibility) so my favorite versions are the A&E ones, they seem to be the most accurate and well made ones. I also like Vitus, a German film about a young boy who is a genius, and just wants to be an ordinary person. Very lovely movie.

I am into politics, I am a Juris Naturalist...I believe in Natural, Higher, Common Law, and so this is a big theme of most of my writings.I am an avid Ron Paul fan, and a proud libertarian.

I don't write in one certain genre, I like just about anything. I tried mysteries, fantasy, romance, historical fiction, and so forth. I am really inspired by nature, being surrounded on three sides by rolling fields, I can't help but love the outdoors.

I have a ton of friends, most of them are pen pals. For some reason I write a lot better than I talk. I can become closer to people through words rather than speaking. I love getting to know a diverse spread of people, from my aunt, to my best friend half way around the world to my friend I see all the time to those I know who live in the city...it is really neat. It is a shame for so many people to be imprisoned by their ideas of friends...'she has to be my age, and like all the things I like'...but really, different and unique friendships are the best.

I am a people-loving person. Sometimes I am in a solitary mood and don't like to be around others, but most of the time I love spending time with other people, talking with them and just having that experience. If I am not around other people for a while I tend to become indifferent to the world, and I don't really care about things anymore. It is interesting to see how social atmospheres affect a person.

My favorite school subjects are: History, Shakespeare, Writing, Logic, French and Biology...just about everything except Math. Someday I would like to be in a play and act out Lady Macbeth from Shakespeare's play...she is such a fascinating person. It is so horrible to think of someone being so wicked, and I love to write (and act) about dark depressing things like that. I am so full of hope that it is such a foreign idea to me for someone to be so full of despair.

Over and Over reviews
Human lust for power and control has never changed. From the Roman Empire to the war in Iraq there are people who think, dream, live, suffer and die in the same ways. Past cruelties are very personal too, they involve the same things we do today.
