Author has written 4 stories for Fantasy, and General.
A wise man once said "Just the facts, ma'am"-- so here I go:
I'm a girl. I love writing, reading, and drawing.
I'm a fantasy geek. In my opinion, any story is improved by having dragons and elves in it. My role models are authors who can tell exciting stories in a family-friendly format: J.R.R Tolkien, Dianna Wynn Jones, Patricia C. Wrede, and Gail Carson Levine are some of my favorites.
My priorities as a writer are interesting plots, complex charaters, and (of course) well executed writing. I do not write (or read) anything involving slash. I do not write bawdy love scenes. I do not include swearing or vulgar language in my stories. I use violence only when it increases the quality of the story--gratuitous bloody battles are one of my pet peeves. I strive to write stories that I would be comfortable with my own children/teens reading. These are just my personal standards, or course--I won't flame or disrespect anyone who feels otherwise. We're all mature enough to agree to disagree, right?
About my pen name: I grew up reading "Batman" comics from the early 1900's. They're good for a laugh, but I was infuriated at how Robin was portrayed. In the beginning, he was a capable sidekick: tough, agile, and clever. But as time went on, the comic writers turned him into a...a damsel in distress! This act of betrayal sickened me. How could they destroy Robin like that? Since then, I have become an advocate for ALL underappreciated sidekicks. Robin, Tonto, Orko--the characters that try hard and always seem to fail, simply because the writers are against them. My pen name references my hope that sidekicks will one day overcome these injustices and receive the appreciation they deserve.
