Author has written 29 stories for Nature, Love, Life, Humor, Fantasy, Haiku, War, and Friendship.

Location: Anywhere But Here.

About Me: I'm a 18 year old girl (08/16), lives in North Wales and is currently enrolled in Yale College, Wrecsam. I enjoy reading in excess, writing and playing/writing/listening to music. I suffer from Dysthymia (Chronic Depression) and have since I was 8. This is probably why I have a habit of writing depressing things every now and again. I have a love of Morbid poetry - as it burns away my anger, and I have a black Labrador named Madeline, "Maddy" - Although perhaps she should be named 'Magpie', as we constantly are finding our possessions in her bed.

Favorite Authors: J.K.Rowling, Suzanne Collins, Rick Riordan, Michael Scott, Dan Brown, Eoin Colfer, Melissa de la Cruz, James Patterson, P.C & Kristen Cast, Kelley Armstrong.

Favorite place to read: Curled up on a windowsill, when it's raining outside. Nothing can top this, especially if I have a nice warm mug of team and some cookies. :)

I can't live without: The written word... Music... A fluffy blanket...Tea (Gotta love Tea!!)

If I could be any literary character, I would be: Something I wrote, after all - most writers pour their souls into their work.

Likes: Music, Life, Showers, Italian food, Foreign cultures, Diversity.

Literature Interests: Mystery, Murder Mystery, Romance, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Adventure, ect.

Fave TV Shows: Tower Prep, Naruto, Unnatural History, FireFly, Castle, Midsummer Murders, Agatha Christie, The Glades, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Doctor Who, Primeval, The Good Guys, Merlin, Human Target, Buffym angel, Farscape, Futurama, Roswell.

Fave Movies: Serenity, The Goonies, Center Stage, Labyrinth, John Tucker Must Die. The Wind in the Willows (1996, non-animated), .

Fave Quotes:

"Give me the child. Through dangers untold, and harships unnumbered. I have fought my way here, to the castle beyond the goblin city, to win back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me."
Labyrinth, Final Solique.

"Behold me, princes of Thebes, The last daughter of the house of your kings;
See what I suffer, and from whom, Because I feared to cast away the fear of Heaven!"
