Author has written 7 stories for Nature, General, and Young Adult.

Hello everyone. I'm a teenage girl, currently sixteen, who fancies herself a writer. I write mostly poetry, but every now and then a story idea will come to me. I love to read and write, and I enjoy the other arts as well. I spend most of my free time reading or writing.

When I'm not indulging the literary side of me, I enjoy science. After school and afore mentioned activities I watch television. My favorite television programme is Doctor Who; The Doctor is my inspiration to most of my fanfictions, and some of my non-fanfiction poems.

I hope you will enjoy my work,
BellsAndRoses

P.S. You can also find me at Fanfiction , and Teaspoon

Quotes/Poems

~Irish Blessing~

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

~Irish Blessing~

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.

~Irish Blessing~

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.

~Irish Blessing~

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.
