Aloha Friends and Writers!
I'm Hales, and I'm in the process of building a new account! I've been on Fictionpress for 12 years, under the name Fleur-de-lis-Evans! I am switching to this account, as I intend to post works in progress and want to be associated with a more professional name!
I have a Bachelor's in English-Literature and Minor in Creative Writing. Books and the written word are my passions! Future goals include continuing work as a Freelance Editor and going into Hospitality Management, with a goal of either restaurant management or Event Planning.
I am beginning my adventure as a photographer and hobbyist Cosplayer. My other passions include Football (Soccer), collecting (stuffed animals, snow globes, books, bottles and cans and a sportswoman, occasionally playing tennis, running, swimming and biking. I also follow British/English television and enjoy several American Shows: So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, One Tree Hill, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 7th Heaven.
I am a sports lover and enjoy supporting the following teams:
Fire (Chicago Soccer) and Finland, England (European Football), The Bears (Chicago Football)l, Broncos (Colorado Football) and Longhorns (Texas Football), and The Blackhawks (Chicago Hockey).
