Author has written 24 stories for General, Politics, Love, Historical, Humor, School, Life, Supernatural, Humor, and Nature.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Location: The U.S. -- near Canada.
About Me: I have always loved talking. That naturally led to reading (i.e. listening to other, more interesting people talk). And that lead to writing. I have been an involved reader since I was introduced to the amazing imagination of Brian Jacques and his Redwall series. I have been an avid and thoroughly delighted reader since my entrance into the wonderful worlds of Tortall through Tamora Pierce (who is one of my writing heroes) and Hogwarts through JKR. I love fantasy especially.
I'm a rather slow writer - in that I have a hard time finishing stories - so if I post anything, it'll be a miracle.
I love music (I play violin, piano, and sing), so that will probably show up in any stories I post.
I'm a bit - more than a bit - of a perfectionist, and thus quite the English freak. Punctuation, spelling, grammar . . . all are deeply important to me. So I apologize in advance for any detailed criticism on how exactly one should punctuate dialogue or something similar.
Influences: My favorite authors run a gamut so wide that it would be impossible to list them all. So, the short version of the Truly Luminary, in no particular order: Brian Jacques, Tamora Pierce, JKR, Eoin Colfer, Neil Gaiman, Rick Riordan, Paula Volsky, Robin McKinley, Megan Whalen Turner, Jacqueline Carey, Alison Croggon, Herbie Brennan, Sherwood Smith, Hilari Bell, Laurel K. Hamilton, J.R.R. Tolkien, Tanith Lee, and Jonathan Stroud. If I think of the others (and there are others), I'll add them. Oh, wait. SHAKESPEARE!!
As far as music goes, I love everything from classical to musicals (especially musicals. They're my favorite) to rock to metal to some country, some pop . . . anything decent, really.
Movies and T.V. - I love romance, so that's always good. Old-fashioned knight in shining armor stuff. And I also love good humor. But I'll watch anything so long as the writing and acting is good.
Ideology: Romantic idealist. Optimist. I like happy endings a LOT. But at the same time, I try to be realistic. I'm a policy debater, so I care about what's feasible in the world as we know it.
Also, in advance, thank you for reading any scribblings I manage to post!
A Note on My Stories: The things I actually do post will most likely be things I've done for school (i.e. the only stories I've actually had to finish). Thus, they may be a bit shorter than I'd like them to be. If anyone has suggestions on how to expand them, that would be most useful and welcome.
In fact, any reviews (yes, even flames) will be welcomed with open arms and (hopefully) an open mind.
If you're interested in reading some of my other work, I also have an account at fanfiction.net. It only has one story right now, but there should be more soon.
