I am finishing my last year of college, and live in Australia. I am particularly found of Georgette Heyer, J.D Robb, J.K Rowling, Nora Roberts, J.R Ward, Lara Adrian, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Stephanie Laurens, Jill Mansell, Andy McDermott, Isabelle Allende and Jane Austen. I've begun a great many novels, but haven't been happy with any of them as yet. Thank you." Short, sweet, simple and to the point.
