Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.

This 'tell me about yourself' thing always gets me, and inside I start screaming, 'Oh my God, who am I??'. Where can I start? I am morbidly obsessed about mythology, languages, folk-lore, and world literature. I read like an absolute maniac, and I read indiscriminately, almost every genre under the sun, except probably YAs, because they are so full of cliches, and I can't handle that. Other than that, I read poetry, both European and Asian, and can pride myself as being somewhat of an expert. I am a hardcore feminist. While I am shy voicing anything about myself, if I come across misogynistic masses, I develop a really loud voice. It has earned me some hate, but it is one cause that I am absolutely unwilling to leave.

Sometimes, people will say that I am way too much sarcastic and cynical, and well, I don't disagree.

I love writing. It keeps me in my safe, secure 'happy place', far, far from the society and the harsh realities. However, I am very shy to put out my works out for the general public, and recently, I am trying to fight the inhibition. I love writing about eccentric characters, anti-heroes and anti-heroines, and those imperfect, realistic women around us, rather than the decked-up Mary Sues.

Cheerio.
