Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, Host, Pride and Prejudice, Animal Ark Series, and Sailor Moon.
Seen as you’ve found your way here, you seem to have found me out of the fog of obscurity and are faintly interested in me. I’ll give you a little bit of a rundown of myself, if just to make sure I don’t fade back into that hated fog!
My name is Charlotte, which I happen to entirely detest so would much prefer if you called me Elriaen.
I am constantly called mad/weird/strange/odd by my friends and they are great compliments now. I am very laid-back but when I snap, I snap badly. I love laughing and like to be outside but also love the comfort of my own room. I am proudly and openly a geek and have only ever got one C in my life (on a small English test where most other people got Fs, I hasten to add). I dislike most sports, excepting swimming and tennis. My favourite place in the world is a nearby park and my favourite time of the day is dusk.
I am a Christian, a Methodist to be exact. Quite a liberal one though. I love my church and the friends I’ve made thanks to church connections.
My dad is entirely to blame for my love of books and words and I think he considers that one of his greatest achievements. I know I will always owe the countless hours of enjoyment, plus the overlarge vocabulary and good English grades, to him. No one can make me smile more easily or understands me so well.
My mum is the person that, in her own wonderful way, tore me away from my books and told me to experience life a little more. Eternal thanks to her for this, as well as every other thing she has ever done that made me into the unique madness I am now. I am, and will always be, more like her than either of us realise.
My brother, though he probably doesn’t realise it, is the person that most drives me to try to excel. Being five years older than me and incredibly clever anyway, his advantage over me has always made me want to get up to his level. I haven’t yet and don’t think I ever will but I’ll never stop trying while he’s around. Thanks Magic.
My account name, Elriaen, reveals a little of my taste. It was made up, I am (probably overly) proud to say, by me, for an OC of mine from the Lord of the Rings series.
I have never written anything but fantasy and I seriously never expect to write anything but it. I’m now sure I will one day write something other than fantasy because life has a wonderful way of challenging statements like that.
My favourite books include LOTR, Harry Potter, Narnia, Eragon, The Sabriel series, The Books of Pellinor, Artemis Fowl and The Twilight series. I can already hear the gasps at that last one but yes, I am one of those strange and rare people that will openly admit to adoring both J.K.Rowling and Stephanie Meyer.
My music collection is incredibly eclectic, ranging from Frank Sinatra (a taste picked up from my parents) to Miley Cyrus (that one I owe to one of my best friends). I like all of what I have (surprising that) and am inspired by all of it at different times. The only thing I can say I definitely do not like is rap.
Films again I have strange and wide ranging taste in. I like chic flicks, sci-fi, historical films, fantasy and some war films. However I don’t particularly like kung-fu things and hate most film adaptations of my favourite books. The only book-to-film conversion that I am aware that I like is the three Lord of The Rings films. Oh yes and something I haven’t mentioned, I adore Disney films. I’m not sure if I’m more of an expert on the Harry Potter books or the Disney films. I challenge every one of you reading this to name an animated Disney film I haven’t seen.
My other main interest is sketching. Having got over the common ‘I cannot draw’ mentality last year, I now love drawing characters from my favourite fandoms and attempting some real life stuff of myself, my family and friends. I honestly believe that, just like anything else, drawing is something you have to learn to do and you don’t have to have any kind of incredibly-fantastic-unbelievable-natural-born-talent for it. You just need to notice the things around you and keep trying to sketch and you will eventually be far better at drawing than you ever thought possible.

A few things about men and women
It is proven that women have a personal need to talk more than double the amount of words men do per day.
It has never been proven that men have a personal need to leave the toilet seat up.
