Author has written 24 stories for Friendship, Family, General, Fantasy, Fable, Action, Life, Song, Politics, Love, Sci-Fi, General, Horror, Young Adult, and Romance.

Welcome... thanks for stopping by.

I'm first year engineering student living in Ontario, Canada. I like to run, cross-country ski, sleep, read and write. I've previously "won" NaNoWriMo, FAWM and Script Frenzy and I'm officially obsessed with crazy creative challenges. Wish me luck!

My current FP goal is to get some longer stories up. In the mean time, I have plenty of shorter works that I've written for contests and such, as well as some poetry. Some of it's even good.

I beta in the hopes of helping others and learning from the process. If anyone is interested, check out my beta profile and then drop me a line. I beta'ed Hichiisai's story "The Diplomat's Tale" from Ch. 12 through to the end. Check it out!

Lastly, a huge thanks to all the authors on FP who create and share such wonderful stories, and to everyone who takes the time to give thoughtful reviews. You're amazing.

NB: I've recently changed my name from AmethystDancer in order to be more consistent across the web.
