About Me

So you want to know about me, do you? So as not to provide you with a completely hard-to-read wall of text, I will space it out in a list-type format!

I'm 26 years old and currently residing in Illinois. I'm married (no kids, thanks).

I have yet to get my college degree, but after this year I will possess a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Useless, I know, but at least it's something.

While my major is not in English or Journalism, let it be known that I love to write. My current project is a science fiction trilogy which I am fondly beginning to call The Twin Worlds Trilogy. At least, I plan to make it a trilogy. The first novel in the series, Ravensblood, is in the editing stages and sitting at a monstrous 146,000 words. The second, Shadowblade, is under production and still just a baby. I hope to be at least halfway done with it by Christmas.

As far as reading goes, I really like fantasy and science fiction. I'll pick up something else, though, if it looks good. I have an crapton of manga sitting around somewhere, though I don't really read it anymore. Maybe I should sell it.

I really enjoy conventions, Renaissance Faires, and cosplay! For the Ren Faires I actually have a pretty decent getup, and it is improved upon every year. I don't really have much for conventions, but I didmake a pretty cool World of Warcraft-inspired quest giver headband that I occasionally wear.

I also enjoy video games. Tried Aion. Geeked out (mostly because the OCs in my novels have similar wings). Didn't actually stick with it though. I have played World of Warcraft seriously, but now I'm quite casual about it. Otherwise I tend to gravitate toward RPG, RTS and Adventure/side-scrolling puzzle games. I can't play FPS games; I get Doom-induced Motion Sickness...and every other kind of motion sickness, for that matter. It makes me really fun to be with in the car.

I love cats. It's a fairly common preference, I know. I am now the proud mother of two kittens. They're sisters named Thunder and Lightning.

If there's anything else you really want to know, you can just ask me! I'm not anti-social; on the contrary, I'm a rather decent person. And I'm a little quirky, but don't worry: I don't bite, aside from the occasional gnaw.

I sent you a trade full of inks, and there is a gift in there for you. I bought it before I realized to gift your supposed to click send gift first. It's a little on the expensive side but I knew you really wanted one and hey, we grew up on Disney so we'll also count it as an early bday present. Bottom line is that I pretty much make our life as weird/crazy/eccentric and for 19, almost 20 years you've pretty much been falling down the bunny hole.

I love you!
