I am an American student living in New York, and I'm an avid science-fiction geek, as well as a self-professed history nut. If you have a question about anything history related, don't be afraid to PM me questions. I'm always looking for excuses to spout history trivia.
Also, FYI: Updates for Change of Destiny, Game of Deception and Moments in Time have been suspended until about the first weekend in June. College scholarship applications will be dominating the free time I've reserved for writing stories. Rest assured, however, that I am not abandoning them, and have every intention of completing each story.
For all you other budding authors out there, I recommend you visit Jim Butcher's journal:. It has been unbelievably helpful as I continue to work on my stories. Or just read it for kicks. Butcher's a riot. If you've read the Dresden Files, the tone is very similar and the humor is amazing.
I am on FictionPress.com, as well, also as CommChatter: http://www.fictionpress.com/u/916870/CommChatter. The original fiction I have started over there is:
The Sons of Liberty: It is 2150, and the world as we know it has been destroyed. A global Empire has risen, all resistance crushed mercilessly. A small group of rebels, calling themselves the Sons of Liberty, are given what sounds like an impossible mission: kill the Emperor.
Enough about me...
We humans do, when the cause is sufficient, spend our own lives. We throw ourselves onto the grenade to save our buddies in the foxhole. We rise out of the trenches and charge the entrenched enemy and die... We are, when the cause is sufficient, insane."
-Orson Scott Card

OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
