About the Avatar: This photo was taken by Ling So out in front of our Community Art Center. I love the place and the trees around it from October to February, it's cool, gray, and perfect! Speaking of perfect, with Ling's mentoring and guidance (and the two years of medical studies). I altered this to give it the look of quite possibly the most complex elf ever put on film, Prince Nuada Silverlance.
About the Author (such as it is):
Occupation: Tutor, freelance writer, student of Education in Literature and Language. Stay in school, kids, the rest of the world is counting on you!
Inspiration: conversations, films (of course), dialogue and interesting facts from multiple books (of course), stories heard, friends and family, Ling So (an energizing force that drives me and is never stingy with encouragement)
Always have loved: magic, cats, tea, fairytales, dragons, fairies, nature, dark chocolate, story-telling, the stars, happy endings!
Favourite writer/author of all time: I would have to say Beatrix Potter; I love the New England Transcendentalists, Romanticists from the Americas and the United Kingdom, Wilde, and Shakespeare’s comedies, but Potter was like the unsung heroine of her day. She rose against society’s expectations and studied parts of nature most people do not even consider as important; she saw such significance and beauty in small, simple things.
About my Storylines: I write because I want happy endings and that is what I intend to put in every story. I also hinge on the idea that redemption is a must and is entirely contingent on the kindness of the fair maiden type characters. Purity conquers evil.
