Author has written 14 stories for Fantasy, Supernatural, Horror, Fable, General, Nature, and Kids.

I read too much, daydream too much and think way, way too much about really, really inconsequential stuff.

It's not healthy. o.O

These places are awesome (or are going to be). Go see.

The Review Game

We Return Reviews

Films:

I'm currently studying film at uni, so this is a big, big interest for me. I'm banned from HMV, (the currently dying) Zavvi, and the DVD section in Morrisson's, as I keep spending money I don't have on lots of cheap films.

I'm a sucker for supernatural, sci-fi and horror types, and more than a healthy amount of comic book adaptations. My love of horror comes, perversely, from an intense squeamishness (I've been known to faint over the discussion of hamstrings and ligaments tearing, and realised I had to quit Biology A level when the lesson on blood vessels left me pale, dizzy and nauseous), and my interest in sci-fi is 100 my dad's influence. He let me watch Blade Runner when i was about twelve, and that was it.

Books:

Anything by Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, or Angela Carter. I have recently been introduced to the wonders of Mark Gatiss' Lucifer Box series (if you haven't heard of them, go do it now) and adore the books by Andrezj Sapowski (sp?) Personal favorites of mine are Sharp Teeth by Toby something...damn, i've forgotten what he's called... 'Neverwhere' by Gaiman, 'Holes' by Louis Sachar, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee and 'Ella Enchanted'.

Music:

Anything. Literally anything - from Vivaldi to System of a Down. So long as it's interesting, in tune, and/or singalongable to, I'll listen to it happily. Except Coldplay and all their clones. I can listen to one song of theirs per week without trying to tear my hair out, but that's it.

TV:

I don't watch tv like a normal person. I catch up on it all online in massive, brain busting bursts. Favourites are Dexter, Buffy/Angel, Gossip Girl (my latest obsession...and I don't know why!) Supernatural, Scrubs, My Name is Earl, Being Human (makes me giggle), the Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, Outnumbered, MASH, Cold Feet, Coupling, Friends, Life on Mars, and before you ask, yes - I have no life...

To Choose Your Best Friend reviews
This was done as an entry for RG's WCC about a year ago I think. The prompt was "For Many Are Called, Nut Few Are Chosen". This was the result. It's boderline semi-autobiographical, with situations and people just sort of squished together into one event.
