Author has written 11 stories for Fantasy, Nature, General, Sci-Fi, and Life.

Note: Weather may be subject to erratic changes, including firey balls of thunder, mermaids pooling up from the sea and punk leprechauns offering pots of gold regardless of any rainbow activity in the area. This is due to a failed quest and immediate apocalypse after is expected depending on any enemies in the surrounding area. Normal service will resume as soon as possible, unless you're a ninja, in which case you're doomed. We apologise for any inconvenience.

...now we've got that sorted...

G'day, I'm Nellie. I'm a die-hard Garth Nix and Tchaikovsky fan and I headbang to the 1812 Overture (hence the name). I am from Australia- no I don't have kangaroos in my backyard, yes I talk funny, no you can't see Uluru or the Sydney Harbour Bridge from my window. We are a pretty ninja-smashing country, though.

Garth Nix is the BEST AUTHOR EVER in case any of you think otherwise, KE Mills is pretty bloody brilliant too, and if you like Albinoni, I want to hear from you! (But if you like movies of books, then please do not mention so to me or I might bite your face off because I am quite opinionated.)

Oh, and UNDEAD are UNCOOL. All forms, no exceptions.

WARNINGS ABOUT MY STORIES:
1. All of my poems scan. And rhyme. Take that.
2. Occasionally I go through a chapter and take out all the adjectives, to see if anyone notices. No-one ever does.
3. I can safely say that there is no purple prose, but if you look, you will find some (gasp) Mary-Sues. Feel free to tell me if they're too perfect, but I maintain that no-one wants to read a story about an everyday person doing everyday things, and taking a character out of that environment almost immediately makes them a sue. Sorry.
4. I welcome flaming. Provided you have something valid to flame about.
5. For some reason, I have yet to write a story where there isn't a girls name that ends in an 'ee' sound.
6. Also, expect random warhorses jumping into the scene and cantering around for a while (anti-writer's block tactic) and extremely erratic updates (IB student aaaaaaah... :)
