Author has written 4 stories for Romance, and General.
Name: Gillian (jil-ee-uhn)
Location: USA, mostly.
I am 27, female, married, and recently became a mother back in December.
My husband, Cal, is the love of my life...I am addicted to his voice (and swoon-worthy Aussie accent).
I adore playing soccer and horseback riding.
I breathe music. My guitar is an extension of my body.
I travel often; I have set foot on all seven continents.
I am a university graduate, and in my first year of medical residency.
I am an exercise-aholic.
I was born on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini. Whatever that means.
I am a book worm.
I have little self-control when it comes to buying shoes, purses, and books.
I have two half-brother's, one half-sister, two step-sisters, and one step-brother.
Interesting fact: I am closer in age to my mom than I am to my half-siblings. They are all at least 19 years younger than me.
My family is convoluted and confusing, but I love them all too much to care.
I have red hair and green eyes, but none of the freckles that people seem to expect.
I am a vegetarian.
I find the Twilight series exasperating. It is poorly written, overly wordy, and completely anti-feminist. And Edward sucks.
Fragment sentences are my friend...they should be your friend, too.
Okay, I figured that since people come here to read, I might as well put down a couple of my favorite books.
And I am a writer, writer of fictions
The history of our race, and each individual's experience, are sown thick with evidence that a truth is not hard to kill and that a lie told well is immortal.
I'd rather have a goddam horse. A horse is at least human, for God's sake.
I was born of both stability and chaos. I have seen nothing and everything.
November 20, 2009: Hey guys! I'm almost ashamed to show my face, after going so long without updating. Life has been crazy. School is more demanding every day, and in the little free time I have I like to cuddle with my husband. Plus, I'm dealing with a recent trauma that makes writing about Astrid a bit painful right now, so it will be a bit longer for the story to continue. In addition, I sort of got de-railed in the story and so I'll probably go through and edit before writing more. For one thing, Cal's name has to change. When I first wrote down the idea for this story, I was not dating, let alone married to my own Cal (yes, I thought of the plot for this that long ago), but it is too hard to have the lead male character with the same name as my husband. Especially when he isn't all that loveable. Anyway, just wanted to update you all a bit about what is happening, and apologize for my tardiness. Cheers!
September 23, 2010: So! I am extremely sorry that I have not updated in so long. All I can say is...Med School! And also, that I won't be continuing any time in the immediate future, because I'm going to be a mommy in about two months!! If I find any time to work on my story, I'll definitely sit down and work on it. But as it stands, I'm dead on my feet constantly and really just not in the correct frame of mind to work on the story anyway; I'm entirely too happy to be writing about Astrid and Cal.
